Optronics International has released a low-cost, single-diode alternative to incandescent lamps. The One Series of LED lamps feature 4-in. round and 6-in. oval, stop, tail and turn lamps. The lamps will be on display at the Mid-America Trucking Show.

The lamps are the first in a new series with others to follow, Optronics said.

Optronics said its One Series LED Lamps looks like an incandescent lamp, costs about twice as much, but lasts 50 times longer.

“Our new One Series LED lamps will disrupt the status quo,” Brett Johnson, president and CEO. “Unless you just really like replacing burned-out incandescent lamps, I can’t think of another reason why you’d buy one at this juncture.”

The One Series LED lamps meet all FMVSS 108 photometric requirements for visibility and safety. Each lamp comes with a lifetime warranty and lenses and housings are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sonically welded. The lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) design that protects their electronics against moisture, shock and vibration.

A grommet-mount version of the new single-diode 4-in. round STL003RB red and STL003AB amber lamps and 6-in. oval STL002RB red and STL002AB amber lamps will be introduced first and will be closely followed by flange-mount versions. The new lamps are expected to begin shipping mid-May. The lamps will be available with standard PL-3, and weather tight termination options will follow, allowing ONE Series LED Lamps to make use of existing harness connections for installation flexibility and cost-effective retrofitting.
