Flashing LED Solar Powered Safety Bike Light

By LEDtronics, Inc.

TORRANCE, CA — March 25, 2008 — LEDtronics® announces its latest solar-powered LED safety light for outdoor evening activities, such as bicycling, walking, jogging and inline skating. Now any outdoorsman can carry an extra measure of security into the backcountry or when battling for a spot on the concrete jungle, with a new compact and lightweight Flashing LED Solar-Powered Safety Bike Light.

Time and time again traffic safety studies have shown that bicyclists experience higher safety rates with the use of lights that make them more visible to motorists, during both the day and night. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s statistics, 33 percent of bicyclist fatalities in 2002 occurred between the hours of 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm. A more recent study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 22% of bicyclist fatalities in 2006 occurred between 6 pm and 9 pm—the most during the day, while 18% took place between 9 pm and midnight.

The most common advice given by biking magazines and websites: “If you’re riding at night, you absolutely should use a flashing red rear light.” They all agree that bicycle reflectors are not sufficient for safety. Some states have even enacted laws to that effect. Maine, for example, requires bicyclists to have a headlight and red taillight visible from at least 500 feet when riding at night.

The Flashing LED Solar-Powered Safety Bike Light by LEDtronics® is just the unit for this purpose. It is very compact, yet it produces a repeating flash that can be seen from up to 2,000 feet away, depending on atmospheric conditions and line of sight. The red flasher is a great safety multitasker. In addition to its primary use on a bike, this unit is ideal for children while walking home from school at dusk. It is indispensable for campers, hikers, skiers, bicyclists and even boaters, since it is waterproof to a depth of three feet. Use it as a personal marker by attaching it to your jacket or belt at night. You can mark your tent or dangerous areas around the campsite. Keep one in your emergency kit at home or one in the glove box of your car in case of fire, flood or earthquake, so that you can use it as a signaling device.

Best of all, this bright flashing unit needs no batteries and is eco-friendly. It sports a built-in solar rechargeable Ni-MH battery that will last up to 5 years (subject to environmental conditions and usage). The unit comes with a red lens and two red 5mm LEDs that flash continuously at a frequency of 200±10 times per minute for over 10 hours, and on only 3-5 hours of daylight charging time. It has both a vibrating sensor and a lighting sensor, switching—it lights after dark and stays off in daylight, and if no vibration is sensed, it is set to switch off.

The LEDtronics® Flashing LED Solar-Powered Safety Bike Light, series SLR-BIKE, is lightweight, weighing only 1.6 ounces—easy to carry on the person. It is also compact, measuring 50mm wide x 65mm high x 30mm deep. Its polycarbonate construction is fully weatherproof. It is easily mounted on any bicycle with the provided mounting clamps, using just a screwdriver. Once installed, it is incredibly low-maintenance.

The Flashing LED Solar-Powered Safety Bike Light part number SLR-BIKE-RED-001 is available for $16.95 per unit. Discounts are available for large purchases. Availability is stock. First-time large production quantities are available to customers in 4-6 weeks.

R30 LED Floodlight, Indoor/Outdoor Bulb Provides Energy Savings in Up-light and Down-light Applications

By LEDtronics, Inc.

TORRANCE, CA — July 17, 2007 — LEDtronics® announces its latest generation of R30 LED Reflector spotlight bulbs. These direct incandescent replacement bulbs combine advanced Light Emitting Diode (LED) technologies, standard 25mm Edison bases and light optimizing designs to produce vivid light. R30 LED bulbs are available in five light emitting angles (15°, 20°, 30°, 40° and 95°) and in 120 volts AC. Other voltages from 12V to 240V—AC or DC—are available for qualified customers.

With a power draw of only 4.5Watts the savings add up quickly. R30 LED colors available are Warm White 3000 Kelvin, Pure White 5500Kelvin, Cool White 8000Kelvin, 633nm Red, 592nm Yellow, 525nm Aqua Green and 470nm Blue. Infrared lamps are offered in wavelengths of 850nm, 880nm and 940nm.Having LED operating lives of up to eleven years and seven sunlight-visible LED light colors—as well as infrared—from which to select, solid-state R30 LED bulbs are the practical and economical way for architects, display designers, visual merchandisers, entertainment designers and other lighting professionals to integrate ornamental illumination into what were formerly maintenance-intensive applications.

Furthermore, an LED cluster lamp continues to provide light even if one or more emitters fail—unlike when the filament fails in an incandescent bulb. R30 LED bulbs are designed to perform well in systems subjected to voltage dips or surges. Integrated current-limited resistors ensure that no circuit modifications are required.Colored lenses or filters are not needed since LEDs emit colored light that is determined by the composition of the semiconductor material comprising the diode. Intensity and color remain stable over the lamp's life. LED technology is an energy-efficient light source; saving 80% – 90% of energy costs compared to a 55- or 65Watt incandescent R30 lamp.

Because LEDs use very little energy and are virtually maintenance-free the cost savings are substantial. Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average lifespan of 100,000-plus hours (11 years)—up to 50,000 hours for white LEDs—LED bulbs operate reliably year after year and are appropriate for many energy-saving utilizations.

R30 LED bulbs are the ideal solution for decorative and nighttime task-lighting applications including large message panels, billboards, scoreboards, time-and-temperature signs, arcade machines, casino accent lighting, theme-and-amusement parks, stage lighting, carnivals, theaters, as uplights/downlights for wall-washing, tree-washing, and other decorative lighting. R30 LED bulbs can be used as individual pixels in large dot-matrix screens, digital time/temperature signs, or full-color display screens.

Prices for R30 LED bulbs range from $82.74 to $154.74 each depending on LED technology and LED color. Large quantity discounts are available. Availability is stock to 4 – 6 weeks for special requirements. R30 LED bulbs carry a three-year limited warranty.

New High-Power LED MR16 Bulbs Consuming Three Watts for 12VAC/DC & 24VDC Systems

By LEDtronics, Inc.

TORRANCE, CA — November 29, 2007 — LEDtronics introduces an addition to its line of drop-in replacement MR16-styled LED bulbs: High-powered 3Watt LED MR16 bulbs. These new 3Watt MR16 LED bulbs have two big advantages over other MR16 LED bulbs. First, they are engineered to handle the variations in voltages that may accompany “noisy” or “dirty” AC or DC power supplies, eliminating potential burnout from incoming voltage that is higher than the lamp’s capacity. Second, the new 3Watt MR16 bulbs eliminate the need to stock a variety of LED MR16 bulbs to coordinate with different voltages that power supplies of 12Volt AC/DC – 24Volt DC may present, simplifying procurement and inventory procedures.

High-powered 3Watt LED MR16 bulbs (Series Number MR16-3W) have the following characteristics; bi-pin bases just like standard incandescent MR16 bulbs, and light outputs of 102.9 lumens using only 2.6Watts with 12Volts DC, 120.6lumens using only 3.7Watts with 12Volts AC, and 140.7 lumens using only 3.8Watts with 24Volts DC. The bulb features three High-Power LEDs and is offered in Cool White (6500 Kelvin) and Warm White (3000 Kelvin) color temperatures. Both Warm and Cool Whites are offered in 61° beam angles (2?½). With factory approval, MR16-3W bulbs may be ordered in other LED colors, voltages and beam angles. MR16-3W bulbs carry a three-year limited warranty. Unlike halogen MR16 lamps that create potentially damaging heat and have caused fires when accidentally in contact with other objects, LED-sourced MR16-3W bulbs generate less heat while operating and pose no threat to the objects they are illuminating or their surroundings. Lighting professionals, architects, industrial designers and maintenance departments will find these MR16-3W lamps to be excellent solutions for their maintenance-free and low-voltage applications. MR16-3W lamps are commonly used for accent, task, and display lighting, track lighting in museums, jewelry stores, and hotels. They are excellent for both residential lighting situations and entertainment venues like theaters, restaurants, and theme parks.

With an average White LED lifespan of up to 50,000-hours (five years), LEDs operate reliably year after year. Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental fluctuation. Integrated current-limited resistors prevent short-circuiting. LED lamps use only 10%-20% of the energy consumed by equivalent incandescent lamps. When combined with their maintenance-free operation this results in substantial cost savings.

The price of an MR16-3W LED bulb is $47.04 each. Discounts are available for large quantity orders. Availability is stock to 4-6 weeks for special requirements. For additional information, contact LEDtronics toll free at 1-800-579-4875, telephone 310-534-1505, fax at 310-534-1424, e-mail webmaster@ledtronics.com or mail at LEDtronics Inc., 23105 Kashiwa Court, Torrance, CA 90505.
