TORRANCE, CA — February 9, 2001 — LEDtronics® announces its latest generation of DécorLED direct incandescent replacement lamps that combine today’s advanced Indium Gallium Aluminum Phosphide (InGaAlP) and Silicon Carbide/Gallium Nitride (SiC/GaN) Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, standard bases (e.g. 25mm Edison screw base) and a design that maximizes illumination.

With a power draw of just 1.0 Watts - 1.7 Watts, an 11-year LED operating life and six sunlight-visible colors from which to select, solid-state DécorLEDs provide architects, entertainment designers and other lighting professionals with the means to integrate ornamental illumination into maintenance-intensive applications. A molded polycarbonate, UV- and shatter-resistant globe protects the LED cluster from the environment. DécorLED lamps are available in all common voltages from 120VDC/AC to 12/14 volts DC. They are designed to perform well when subjected to voltage dips or surges. Integrated current-limited resistors and polarity-protection diodes assure that no circuit modifications are required. Custom frosted/tinted bulbs, multi-colored lamps and special voltages are available depending upon factory approval. G25, G40A, S11 and S14 size bulbs are available as well.

Eighteen discrete LEDs are optimally configured either to disperse light in a 270° wide angle or a 30° acute angle depending upon the model. Individual high-intensity LEDs incorporate optical grade epoxy to produce bright vivid illumination. Colors available are Green (10,000mcd), White (6,000mcd), Blue (3,000mcd), Yellow (7,000mcd), Red (3,500mcd), and Orange (6,500mcd) as well as derivations of those colors. Additionally, with the use of multiple LEDs, an LED cluster lamp continues to provide light even if one or more emitters fail unlike when the filament breaks in an incandescent bulb.

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 lamp’s lifetime. DécorLED is an energy-efficient light source, saving 80% - 90% of energy costs compared to a 15- or 20-Watt incandescent lamp. Because the DécorLED uses very little energy and is virtually maintenance free the cost savings are substantial. When compared to an equivalent incandescent, the energy savings per 1,000 DécorLED lamps, including labor, averaged over a decade equates to $140,000 (15W) and $184,000 (20W). These are conservative figures without adjustments for inflation.

Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably year after year and are appropriate for many applications. DécorLED is an ideal solution for decorative and night task lighting applications including large message panels, billboards, scoreboards, time and temperature signs, arcade machines, casino accent light, theme and amusement parks, stage lighting, carnivals, theaters and ornamental lighting. DécorLEDs can be used as individual pixels in a large dot matrix screen, full color screens, moving signs and displays.

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, 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 DécorLEDs range from $17.26 - $51.79 each in quantities of 1,000 depending on LED technology and. Availability is stock to 4 – 6 weeks for special requirements. DécorLEDs carry a 3-year limited warranty.
