Peterson Mfg presents new version of classic 36-diode Piranha lighting

Peterson Mfg Co has combined the classic look of its original 36-diode Piranha LED lights with state-of-the-art circuitry and automated manufacturing to create a new line of USA-made lighting: the 817R-36 stop/turn/tail light and the 817A-36 park/turn light.

The new models offer the best of old and new: Peterson’s best-selling 4-inch round styling and the rugged durability of its most modern lighting technology.

Mark Assenmacher, Peterson marketing director, said, “Customers can now choose the classic look and owner-operator appeal of Peterson’s traditional 36-diode LED light while still getting all of our latest features: integrated AMP connector, insert-molded terminals for the ultimate environmental seal and the most efficient surface-mount diodes available.”

The new 4-inch round models are available as both red-lensed S/T/T lights and amber-lensed park/turn signal lights. Thirty-six of the latest bright white diodes provide brilliant illumination with proven LED reliability. Both models feature an operating range of 9 to 16 volts, with a design that provides consistent light output over the entire voltage range.

Available in either grommet- or flange-mount design, the new lights do not require “Top” positioning to meet FMVSS 108 standards. The amber version meets US Department of Transportation requirements for front and rear turn signal, parking lamp, sidemarker and clearance light.
