Truck-Lite has introduced single diode technology to its line of LED back-up lamps. The 66 Series oval lamp, available with grommet and built-in flange mounts, uses the company’s Advanced Optics Design software to provide a more homogeneous-appearing light pattern, similar to an incandescent lamp.

The company says the appearance of the back-up lamp looks like a traditional incandescent lamp, making it less prone to theft but still providing all the benefits of LED technology, including outstanding reliability, brighter whiter light, and improved resistance to shock and vibration for longer lamp life. The 66 Series LED back-up lamp meets photometric specifications when mounted vertically and exceeds DOT requirements and SAE standards for highway lighting, according to Truck-Lite.

The two-lamp system is suited for body market or trailer applications. All electronics, including the diode, are sealed in epoxy to help withstand road shock and vibration, and prevent moisture from reaching the circuits. The back-up lamp uses Truck-Lite’s proprietary Fit N’ Forget connection designed for increased corrosion resistance.
