TORRANCE, CA — October 4, 1999 — LEDtronics® announces its most advanced
direct incandescent replacement StackLED® (U.S. patent 404,506) LED
lamps for process control and machine status indicator stack light towers.
Bright, reliable and cost-effective, StackLED lamps emit intense visible
light to bridge the man-machine interface.
StackLED lamps are plug-compatible
with most major manufacturers’ stack light towers, require no modification
to the indicator column, and can be used with flasher circuits. With a typical
operating life measured in years not hours, StackLED lamps provide major
cost savings along with non-interrupted information flow. Incorporating
state-of-the-art LED (light emitting diode) technology and solid-state design,
StackLED lamps withstand the mechanical (vibrations) and electrical stresses
(fluctuations) that exist in the environments where vertical indicator towers
are commonly used.
StackLED lamps are ideal for conveyor systems, pick-and-place
assemblers, automated surface mount machines, process control lines and
high noise industrial environments. StackLED lamp packages size range
from .86-inches wide by 1.80-inches to 1.30-inches wide by 2.0-inches high.
a choice of sizes, standard electrical bases, six sunlight-visible colors,
industry-standard voltages, there’s a StackLED lamp to meet your requirements.
Depending on the model, StackLED lamps are comprised of a cluster of LEDs
(numbering from 4 to 24) to provide 360-degree viewing. Electrical bases
available are 15mm DC bayonet, 9mm SC bayonet, 9mm miniature bayonet and
candelabra. Polycarbonate bulbs resist impact, optimize viewing and maximize
light dispersion. StackLED lamps come in all standard voltages (12v, 24v,
120v, 230v) AC or DC as well as AC/DC bipolar. StackLED lamps retrofit to
a specific manufacturer’s stack holder model and are designed specifically
to operate in those models. Choose from six sunlight-visible colored LEDs:
Red (AlGaAs, 660nm), Amber (InGaAIP, 612nm), Yellow (InGaAlP, 595nm) Green
(SiC/GaN, 525nm), Blue (GaN, 470nm), White (SiC/GaN).
StackLED lamps’ solid-state circuitry renders them impervious to electrical
and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes.
With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), StackLED lamps
operate reliably year after year. That’s more than 20 times longer
than the equivalent incandescent lamp! Savings from reduced maintenance
costs and downtime quickly return the capital investment expenditure! Additionally,
StackLEDs 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.
Founded in 1983, LEDtronics® leads where others only follow when it comes
