Peterson Manufacturing says its latest-generation Piranha-brand LED comes with built-in intelligence that offers multifunction safety lighting for a wide range of service/utility/construction vehicles. Called the Smart Lamp, the auxiliary strobing LED is designed to pack computer-driven functionality and instant LED response into a slim 6-inch oval design that fits wherever standard round lights won’t.

Amber in color, the Smart Lamp — which is hard-wired to accommodate both dual and quad flashing patterns — meets J1318 specifications and can install on thinner rails to replace the original turn lights, according to the company. While its internal microprocessor keeps left/right strobes in sync, it also coordinates strobe light functions with rear turn signals, canceling and activating the strobes when turn signals are operated, Peterson says.

No external power source or control box or switching is required, according to the company; wiring is clean and simple, and amp draw is low. For more information, go to
