TORRANCE, CA — February 5, 2000 — LEDtronics® announces its new direct
incandescent replacement EXL
Series Exit Sign LED Lamp Kit that makes it
easy to switch from inefficient incandescents to energy-saving LED lamps.
Containing two colored (either red or green) diffuser panels and two color-coordinated
LED lamps, the EXL Series Exit Sign Kit puts convenience and cost-savings
in one package.
EXL Series LED lamps consume less than 1.5W per lamp pair,
representing an 80% - 90% savings over a pair of equivalent incandescent
lamps! For facility managers concerned with lowering and containing
costs, EXL Series Lamps saves approximately $25 - $30 annually (based on $.07
kilowatt/hour) in energy costs. Multiply that figure by the number
of exits in a building or on a campus, and the money saved is significant.
While complying with UL924 light output requirements, EXL Series LED
Lamps fit most standard exit sign fixtures (single or double-sided) without
requiring modifications, adapters or rewiring. They are available in Edison
15mm DC bayonet base, Edison 15mm intermediate screw base and candelabra
screw base. The EXL Series LED lamps operate on 120 volts, AC or DC and
draw less than 2 Watts. LEDtronics’ Exit Sign LED Lamps are plug-compatible
with incandescents such as 20T6 ½ IF and 15T6. The EXL Series Kit
is the ideal for a wide variety of applications ranging from above doorways
in offices, emergency exits in hospitals, stairways in parking structures
to theater fire exits.
Flame-retardant polycarbonate diffuser panels resist impact, optimize viewing
and maximize light dispersion. Designed to accommodate standard exit sign
fixtures, the diffuser panels are independent of the exit sign fixtures
enabling them and the LED lamps to be easily changed. Lamps are rated for
incoming voltages of 120VAC. EXL Series LED lamps with bayonet and intermediate
screw bases measure 122.84mm (4.84") length with a base width of 15mm
(.59"). Candelabra-based LED lamps are 117.63mm (4.63") long with
a base width of 11.44mm (.45").
The EXL Series LED lamps’ solid-state design renders them impervious
to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental
extremes. ) EXL Series LED lamps operate reliably year after year and are
covered by a 5-year warranty. Typically, LEDs have with an average life
span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years). That’s more than 20 times longer
than the equivalent incandescent lamp! Savings from reduced maintenance
costs and energy expenditures return the capital investment in six to eight
months! Additionally, EXL Series LED lamps produce almost no heat and require
80% - 90% less operating power than equivalent incandescents, making them
as friendly to the environment as they are to the operating budget.
