Peterson Manufacturing has expanded its LumenX LED line with a stop/tail/turn (S/T/T) light featuring an integrated back-up lamp. Dubbed a “cyclops style” by Peterson design engineers, the new model embeds a small white lens within the main red LumenX lens, allowing one of the seven diodes to provide DOT-legal back-up functionality—a true two-in-one lighting concept.
All LumenX Series lights from reds to ambers to back-ups feature the latest white-diode LEDs and breakthrough optics engineered to fully illuminate the entire lens—no “hot spots” or “dead zones” regardless of viewing angle.
Project engineer John Hansen credits the cutting-edge LumenX design for making the new two-in-one footprint achievable.
“The idea of integrating a white back-up light into a red lamp was a feasible extension of the LumenX architecture,” he said. “Of course, turning innovative concepts into brand-worthy Peterson products takes high expertise every step of the way.”
Like other models in the LumenX LED Series, the new two-in-one lights are provided in standard 4" round and 6" oval footprints, with grommet- or flange-mounting options. When used in pairs, these two-in-one lights meet US Department of Transportation requirements in any orientation.
An  ISO 9001:2008 certified company, Peterson Manufacturing is a subsidiary of Peterson Corporation, nine specialized companies and nearly 1,000 associates working in global transportation-related industries.
