Grote Industries announced the expansion of its SuperNova NexGen LED lamp offering, with the introduction of its new integrated flange four-inch stop/tail/turn and dual-system back-up lamps.
The new lamps feature a one-piece integrated flange design that mounts directly to the surface of a vehicle, eliminating the need for accessory mounting brackets or grommets. The lighting systems come with a cushioning gasket seal that keeps water and debris from getting behind the lamp while functioning as a shock absorbing mechanism. The design also incorporates an extremely robust, hermetic, lens-to-housing seal that resists moisture intrusion that would result in component corrosion.
“The integrated flange design is the most versatile and cost effective addition to the premium, SuperNova NexGen LED product family to date,” said Randy Staggs, Grote’s business development manager for signal lighting. “OEMs will benefit from improved assembly efficiency, while fleets and other end-users will incur simplified repair and replacement requirements.”
Grote’s SuperNova line is recognized for its high performance and the lamps are designed to be extremely durable. Each lamp is designed with an environmental encapsulant potting that cradles the lamp’s solid-state circuit board and protects it from moisture and vibration.
The lamps’ innovative optical lens design reduces theft potential by intentionally resembling incandescent versions, but their performance on the road is nothing like their incandescent predecessors. Grote’s SuperNova NexGen LEDs illuminate 200 milliseconds faster than incandescent bulbs. This faster turn-on time provides a safety benefit to the driver of the following vehicle, which can amount to more than a full car length of extra stopping distance at 65 mph.
Both the flanged four-inch stop/tail/turn and flanged dual-system back-up lamps are available with hard-shell and male-pin termination options, which allow them to make use of existing pigtails for installation flexibility and cost effective retrofitting.
The flanged four-inch stop/tail/turn lamps and flanged dual-system back-up lamps have durable acrylic lenses and housings composed of hard-coated polycarbonate material. As new members of the SuperNova NexGen product line, both lamps carry Grote’s exclusive 10-year warranty.
