TORRANCE, CA — August 15, 1997 — What is it that causes your
lighted exit signs to go out? If your situation is like most, it’s
the continuous operation of the incandescent lamps combined with the shock
and vibration they encounter by being located above doorways. Incandescent
bulbs, which provide the light for most exit signs, produce light by passing
electricity through a filament. When the filament breaks, from shock and
old age, the light goes out.
A much more reliable solution is found in exit signs illuminated by light
emitting diodes or LEDs. Because LEDs have no filament, they are almost
impervious to shock and vibration, and a new generation of ultra-bright
LEDs marketed by California manufacturer LEDtronics®, Inc., offers direct
replacement for most common bulbs found in exit signs.
Designed on standard bases, the LEDtronics® replacements require no
modifications to the socket or to the circuit that supplies power. Each
LED cluster provides the same illumination as the incandescent lamp it replaces,
but uses a fraction of the energy and -- with an average lifespan of 100,000
hours -- far outlives the typical incandescent.
LEDtronics®’ LED replacements for exit sign lamps are available
with Edison intermediate and candelabra screw bases as well as double-contact
bayonet mounts. These LED lamps are configured to produce high intensity
wide-angle illumination patterns in either red or green.
If you’d like to reduce energy consumption, lower maintenance costs,
and keep your exit signs lighted more of the time, look into durable LED
replacements from LEDtronics®.
