Peterson Manufacturing Introduces LED License/Utility Light

Wed Jul 12, 2017

GRANDVIEW, Mo. - Peterson Manufacturing continues to introduce new and innovative USA-made lights with a versatile new item: the 290 series LED License/Utility light.

Boasting a compact, rugged design and single-diode Great White LED efficiency, the 290 series packs big performance into a small package.

Peterson engineers leveraged the company’s advanced manufacturing capabilities to produce a light with precision optics and superior light dispersal combined with a compact design and single-diode economy.

The 290 series lights are available as low-profile utility/auxiliary lights measuring just 3 inches wide by 0.6 inches high, or as legal license lights when installed with either a top- or side-mount spacer bracket. Hard-wired with a choice of either stripped leads or .180 bullet connectors, the new lights surface-mount on 2-inch centers.

“We think our new 290 series lights are the most exciting LED license light design on the market,” Peterson Marketing Director Mark Assenmacher says. "Their precision optics with optimal light output and superior dispersal make these USA-made products the best value in LED license lights. We have them in stock and ready to ship today.”
