Optronics Unveils New GloLight Series LampsDec 29th, 2012 | By Editorial Staff | Category: New Products
The GloLight Series features a smoothly illuminated outer band that surrounds a central LED array that remains unlit during standard tail light operation. The dual-function outer ring brightens and the central LED array lights only during stop and turn functions.
All the lamps in the new GloLight Series meet all FMVSS 108 and SAE photometric requirements for visibility and safety. The lamps come with a lifetime warranty and are built to be as durable. Lenses and housings are made of polycarbonate material that is sonically welded, and the lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects their electronics against moisture, shock and vibration.
Optronics has leveraged advancements in diode technology and innovative optic design techniques to achieve the diffused outer ring that gives the GloLight its signature look.
GloLight Lamps will be available in flange-mount and grommet-mount versions and are expected to begin shipping on Feb. 1, 2013. The lamps are available with standard PL-3 and Weather Tight termination options, allowing them to make use of existing harness connections for installation flexibility and cost effective retrofitting.
“From a visual perspective, nobody has done much to change the round and oval shapes that comprise today’s stop, tail, turn lamps,” Marcus Hester, director of sales and marketing for Optronics International, said. “The GloLight stands out and changes the way vehicle lighting looks, shifting trends and broadening lighting choices along the way.”
