Grote produces surface-mount LED

Grote Industries says its surface-mount LED side turn lamp provides plenty of light to the front for drivers to see in their rearview mirrors. Applications include semi-trailers, tractors, RVs and busses. The side turn design features two Lumileds Luxeon LEDs — one top emitter and one side emitter — that, when combined with jeweled reflectors, are highly effective at placing light where it is needed, the company says.

The lamp’s inner lens array is designed to optimize LED output while eliminating the need for expensive additional LEDs. Components that help extend LED life, Grote says, include a sentry-style UBS male-pin electrical connection, and a metal core circuit board that dissipates heat from electronic components. A tough polycarbonate lens and housing are engineered to provide exceptional impact resistance.

Spacing between mounting screw centers makes retrofitting easy, the company says; screw bosses are designed to withstand high mounting screw torque without cracking. For more information, go to
