TORRANCE, CA — May 6, 2005 — LEDtronics Inc. introduces drop-in replacements BSD1890 and BSD1888 LED Passenger Reading Lamps for incandescent lamps #2232, #2266 and halogen lamp #0201789-001 that are used in 28V reading light fixtures in airplane cabins, passenger trains and coach buses. These energy-efficient and long-lived illuminators are available in 9mm and 15mm single-contact bayonet bases and don't require modifications prior to installation. Each model features 28 warm white 5mm LEDs (4500K). They only draw between 1.5 and 2.0W compared with 18W and 21W for GE's incandescent #2232 and #2266 respectively.

The BSD1890/1888 LED lamps also reduce the chance of getting burned from a hot bulb and fixture since LEDs create little heat so the bulb and fixture remain at nearly room temperature. The compact and bright BSD1890/888 offer designers an avenue to simplify installation, to improve lighting system reliability, and to create innovative light designs. BSD1890/1888 lamps can be used as reading lamps, chart lamps and task lights in limousines, coach buses, train compartments, and motor homes. Series BSD1890/1888 LED lamps are 28V standard. Airplane, bus and train manufacturers, design engineers and maintenance crews will find these lights to be excellent solutions for maintenance-intensive and low-voltage applications. Lamps carry a 3-year limited warranty.

With an average life span of 50,000-plus hours (5 years), white LEDs operate reliably year-after-year. Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental fluctuation. Integrated current-limited resistors prevent short-circuiting. LED lamps use only 10% - 20% of the energy consumed by equivalent incandescent lamps that when combined with their maintenance-free operation results in substantial cost savings.

Founded in 1983, LEDtronics® 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.
