Optronics debuts new stop, tail, turn lamps

Optronics 6 inOptronics International announces another expansion of its GloLight product line with the introduction of its new STL112 6-in. oval and STL113 4-in. round LED stop, tail, turn lamps and its E-rated STL175 oval mid-ship turn and intermediate marker lamp.

While different in design and function, Optronics says the lamps all share the smooth, glowing outer band that gives the broadening family of GloLight lamps their signature appearance.

“The marketplace response to our GloLight line has been nothing short of astonishing,” says Brett Johnson, president and CEO of Optronics. “A full 80 percent of the fleet trials we now have underway include GloLight lamps, and we expect the high-style 4-in. round and 6-in. oval stop, tail, turn lamps to be particularly popular among independent owner-operators.”

The new STL112 6-in. oval and STL113 4-in. round LED stop, tail, turn lamps have been designed with distinctive mirrored reflectors that give the core of the lamps a visual snap while optimizing their light output, the company says. The STL113 round lamps also are said to feature a unique, starburst light pattern emanating from the center of the lamp.

Optronics adds the 6-in. oval mid-ship turn signal and intermediate marker lamp completes the line by putting GloLight technology where it’s never been before. With the addition of the new lamps, trailers can have a GloLight lamp in virtually every position on the vehicle, the company says.

The new 10-diode STL175 mid-ship lamp is SAE E-compliant and meets all California requirements for mid-ship turn signals on vehicles measuring 30 feet or longer. Like other GloLight lamps, Optronics says its outer ring has a smooth glow when operating in its standard function as a marker lamp. When the lamp’s turn signal function is in operation, the LEDs in the center of the lamp brightly illuminate intermittently to indicate the driver’s intentions.

“Since the introduction of the first GloLight product in 2012, we’ve been working toward a total GloLight vehicle offering,” says Marcus Hester, vice president of sales and marketing for Optronics. “Our new 10-diode mid-ship turn signal and intermediate marker lamp does that, and its California E-rating makes it a practical choice for OEMs, fleets and independent owner-operators alike.”
