LED lamp uses single diode

Truck-Lite's Super 66 red 6" oval light-emitting diode (LED) stop/turn/tail lamp uses only one diode. It is the first of a new series of single-diode safety lamps now being developed.

The Super 66 is less directional than multiple-diode LED lamp designs. Truck-Lite used its Advanced Optics Design software to provide a more homogeneous light pattern similar to an incandescent lamp. Since it looks more like a traditional incandescent lamp, the Super 66 will be less prone to theft. Other advantages offered include:

  • Lamp life rated at 100,000 hours, equivalent to more than 11 years of continuous operation.

  • Narrow wavelength light, providing the same intense color that helped make LEDs desirable.

  • Low amperage draw for fewer wiring and alternator problems.

  • Instantaneous glow time, 0.2 seconds faster than incandescent lamps.

  • Resistance to shock and vibration.
