TORRANCE, CA — April 20, 2006 — LEDtronics® announces BSD-1838 14 Volt T1-1/4 Twist Lock Base Mount Neo Wedge Bulb that may be used in many instrument panels. The Neo Wedge Bulb is available in dazzling yellow or vibrant red allowing many versatile lighting for many applications such as dashboards, air conditioning indicators, button lamps, gauge illumination, warning markers, headlight switches, PC boards lamps, or even lighting for your jet ski and boat.

The BSD-1838-0UR LED emits a luminous red color using 14V at a viewing angle of 125°. Giving off a pleasing yellow color at a 125° angle, the BSD-1838-0UY LED also uses 14V. Both these LEDs are highly durable and reliable and require no socket. Installation can be done using an easy twist-to-lock method to ensure a secure electrical contact. These LEDs eliminate many of the shortcomings of conventional indicator lamps. These LEDs remain vibrant and easy to see when old traditional lamps begin to dim and sometimes fail completely.

Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching, and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LED lamps operate more than 20 times longer than the equivalent incandescent lamp! Savings from reduced maintenance costs and downtime quickly return the capital investment expenditure! 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.

Founded in 1983, LEDtronicsâ 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.
