Optronics International Introduces STLW and STL FusionX Lights
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Optronics International, Tulsa, Oklahoma, has introduced its STLW and STL FusionX family of combination stop, tail, turn, backup and warning lights. Featuring a signature “X” LED lighting array in their centers, and available in eight SKUs, the FusionX lamps are the newest members of Optronics’ popular Fusion Series combination lamps for use on your work truck, mechanic’s truck, crash attenuator and so on.
Before the introduction of Optronics’ Fusion Series LED combination lamps in 2014, vehicles used separate 6-inch oval or 4-inch round stop, tail, turn lamps and backup lamps. Each lamp needed its own mounting hole, and these holes were made in the vehicle body panels, frame posts, docking plates or gussets. Optronics Fusion lamps consolidate multiple lighting functions into a single lamp footprint.
The addition of a compliant warning light function in the FusionX was a logical next step in the evolution of the Fusion Series. Optronics’ FusionX LED combination lamps also disable the warning light function as soon as the brake light is illuminated. The warning override feature helps eliminate potential misinterpretations by others on the road or worksite and allows the FusionX to fully meet FMVSS 108 requirements, according to the manufacturer. The lamps also meet the SAE J595 standard for Class 2 and Class 3 directional warning lamps. The FusionX STLW lamps, with their warning light, have four preprogrammed flash patterns to choose from. Their centralized x-shaped LED array serves as both a white backup light and a white, amber or alternating white and amber warning flasher with two cadences to choose from. Multiple lamps can be wired to operate flashers either asynchronously, or be connected, allowing users to achieve synchronized illumination patterns. STL versions of the lamp are also available without a warning function.
The lamps come in grommet-mount versions, as well as surface/flange-mount versions. The STLW314MSHB is also available in the STLW314MGHB grommet-mount version. The STL316MSHB is also available in the STL316MGHB grommet-mount version. The STL314MGHB is also available in the STL314MSHB surface/flange-mount version. The STLW316MGHB is also available in the STLW316MSHB surface/flange-mount version.
The lamps come hardwired and ready to install. As an integrated electrical system solutions provider, Optronics is also able to configure the lamps with industry standard connectors by request. FusionX lamps are available in both bulk and polypack packaging.
