TORRANCE, CA — September 2, 1997 — A new line of ultra-low-profile
pathlights offering direct replacements for incandescent bulbs in safety
and emergency applications has been introduced by LEDtronics®, Inc.
The PLT Pathlight Series are flexible, solid state LEDs which provide
directional lighting for steps, stairways, stairwells and walkways. They
are also used to identify and mark manufacturing, storage and equipment
areas. They can be cut to any length, and supplied with a water-clear
cover and snap-in base with a UL rating of 94V-0.
LEDtronics®’ high-impact resistant, polycarbonate carriers are
flexible enough for almost any installation. The ultra-low-profile carrier
base can be nailed, glued, screwed, or attached with Velcro, and is flexible
enough to mount to almost any surface. The splashproof carrier design
protects the Pathlight LED from chemical spills, bumps, pedestrian traffic
and normal industrial equipment as well as from smoke and water in emergency
situations. In case of power outages, Pathlight LEDs can continue to operate
if supplied externally with a low-power, rechargeable, back-up power supply.
These flexible, solid state LEDs offer controllable intensity. The PLT-1001
full intensity LED Pathlights are easily controlled remotely by potentiometers
or logic controllers, and lux levels can be remotely controlled in various
production areas. The PLT-1002 Series is preset to the lowest intensity
safelight level for light-sensitive applications and is not adjustable.
Spacing options for the LED Pathlights are 3, 6, and 12 inches, with custom
spacing configurations available. The LEDs are connected in parallel and
function independently ¾ if one LED is not functioning, the remaining
LEDs continue to work. Standard voltages range from 2V to 28V with custom
voltages available, and the LEDs can be connected in combinations to supply
additional voltages. LEDtronics®’ Pathlights come in a variety
of colors including Hi-efficiency Red and Green, Ultra Red, Orange, Amber
Yellow, Lime Yellow, and Deep Green. Using the latest chip technology
of Indium Gallium and Gallium Nitride, LEDtronics® also offers these
lamps in ultra bright colors of Orange, Yellow, Green, and Blue.
The PLT Series features a 140 degree viewing angle, excellent visibility
and viewing distance, high illumination, and ease of replacement. These
LEDs can withstand high shock and vibration and hostile environments that
incandescent bulbs cannot tolerate.
Depending on color, typical pricing ranges from $6.00 to $12.00 per foot,
in 1,000 foot rolls. The PLT Series is available in production quantities
in 45-60 days with samples and/or prototype quantities available to qualified
customers in 1-2 weeks.
