Optronics International has released smoke-lens Thinline STL59SRSHB Series 9-LED and STL87SRSHB Series 11-LED surface-mount, stop/turn/tail lamps. 

The two new, thin, surface-mount-style lamps are the latest additions to Optronics’ family of eight smoke-lens LED lights. First introduced in 2020, Optronics’ blackout lights are designed to have a truly black appearance when not illuminated and meet FMVSS 108 and CMVSS 108 compliance when illuminated.

Using high-Intensity LEDs to Achieve Necessary Brightness

The new 9-LED and 11-LED lamps use black printed circuit boards (PCBs) inside the lamps, minimizing reflection when the lights are off. Unlike LED lights that feature white or reflective chrome-like PCBs to boost brightness, Optronics' smoke-lens lights rely on their high-intensity LEDs to achieve the necessary brightness levels for compliance with federal photometric standards.

This range includes small, 3/4-inch round, single-diode marker/clearance lights to diamond-shaped, three-diode marker/clearance lights, as well as 4-inch round, six-diode backup lights and 6-inch oval, six-diode stop/turn/tail lights, among others. The company is also planning a blackout version of its popular Fusion Series stop/ turn/tail/backup combo lamp.

The lamps’ lenses are made of tough polycarbonate material that is sonically welded and resistant to dust and moisture. The lamps employ a solid-state, surface-mount device (SMD) designed to protect electronics against moisture, shock and vibration. 

The smoke-lens Thinline STL59SRSHB Series 9-LED and STL87SRSHB Series 11-LED surface-mount, stop/turn/tail lamps are in stock and available for shipping immediately.
