TORRANCE, CA — April 27, 2001 — LEDtronics® announces an extensive line of direct incandescent replacement Telephone-Slide
Based LED Lamps that are designed to replace incandescent telephone-slide
based lamps in miniature utility switches, industrial control panels and
other applications that demand durable and energy-efficient light sources.
This new generation of telephone-slide LED lamps integrates the latest LED
chip technology for the brightest illumination, and is plug-compatible
with illuminated switches and indicators from major manufacturers. Sizes to
from are European-style T5.5K and T6.8, and T2 ANSI numbers 1, 2, 3 and
5. LEDtronics® Telephone-Slide Based LEDs are offered in two types of LEDs:
(1) single and (2) multichip, which provides continuous light even if one
or more emitters fail. Telephone-Slide Based LEDs are available in the following
colors and derivations thereof: Green (10,000mcd), White (6,000mcd), Blue
(3,000mcd), Yellow (7,000mcd), Red (3,500mcd), and Orange (6,500mcd).
to their solid-state construction, LEDtronics LEDs lamps are ideal
for industrial installations that are subjected to vibration, shock and environmental
all which reduce the life of incandescent lamps. LEDs feature almost
instantaneous turn-on and turn-off without transients. Applications include
for process controls, aircraft instrumentation, elevator panels, automobile
lighting, medical and scientific equipment, and panel mount indicator
lamps. LED lamps last 30 - 50 times longer that the incandescent lamps they
and their low-current, high-efficiency operation delivers power savings
of 80% - 90% or more. Additionally, LED lamps produce little or no
heat resulting in lighted panels and switches that are cool-to-the-touch unlike
those lit by incandescent lamps.
LED lamps can be supplied for all common indicator supply voltages from
5V to 120V DC or AC. These products feature built-in current-limiting resistors
and polarity-protection diodes to assure that circuit modifications are
not required. A typical LED lamp provides an intense beam of colored light.
The viewing angle depends on the shape of the epoxy lens and the LED chip’s
position within the epoxy lens. The intensity and wavelength remain stable
over the lamp’s lifetime of 100,000-plus hours. (That’s 30-50
times longer than incandescent bulbs!) Additionally, LED lamps are environmentally
friendly because they use 80% to 90% less operating power than standard
incandescent bulbs. Think of the savings from reduced power usage, maintenance
costs and less machine and operator downtime!
Founded in 1983, LEDtronics® leads where others only follow when it comes
to designing, manufacturing and packaging state-of-the-art LEDs to meet
the world’s constantly changing lighting needs. Our inventive product
line encompasses an array of direct incandescent lamp replacement Based
LED Lamps, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LED Lamps and holders,
high intensity sunlight-visible Discrete LEDs, PCB LEDs circuit board status
indicators, surface mount diodes SMT LEDs, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs
and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.
Prices for Telephone-Slide Based LED lamps range from $4.38 to $10.35 quantity
of 100, depending on LED color, cluster size, base type and voltage. Samples
are available to qualified customers. Ask for data sheet #012. For additional
