TORRANCE, CA — September 9, 2003 — LEDtronics® announces G25-Style DécorLED direct incandescent replacement
LED lamps. G25 DécorLEDs combine Indium Gallium Aluminum Phosphide
(InGaAlP) and Silicon Carbide/Gallium Nitride (SiC/GaN) Light Emitting
Diode (LED) technologies, standard 25mm Edison-screw bases and light
maximizing designs. With power draws of 1.0 Watts - 1.7 Watts,
11-year LED operating lives and six sunlight-visible colors from which
to select, solid-state G25 DécorLEDs provide architects, entertainment
designers and other lighting professionals with the means to integrate
ornamental illumination into maintenance-intensive applications.
Eighteen discrete LEDs are optimally configured to disperse light in either
a 270° wide angle or a 30° acute angle depending upon the model. Individual
high-intensity LEDs incorporate optical grade epoxy to produce bright
vivid illumination. Colors available are Green (570nm, 525nm), White
(4500K, 8000K), Blue (470nm, 505nm), Yellow (595nm), Red (660nm, 633nm),
and Orange (612nm). Colored lenses or filters are not needed since
LEDs emit colored light. The color is determined by the composition
of the semiconductor material comprising the diode. A molded polycarbonate,
UV- and shatter-resistant globe protects the LED cluster from environmental
stresses. G25 DécorLED lamps are available in all common voltages from
120VDC/AC to 12/14 volts DC. They perform well in applications subjected
to voltage dips or surges. Integrated current-limited resistors and
polarity-protection diodes assure that no circuit modifications are
required. Custom options are: Frosted/tinted bulbs, multi-colored lamps
and special voltages. A19, G40A, S11 and S14 size bulbs as well as
E27 European screw bases are also available.
G25 DécorLEDs are energy-efficient light sources, saving 80% - 90% of energy
costs compared to a 15- or 20-Watt incandescent lamps. Because G25
DécorLEDs use very little energy and are virtually maintenance free
the cost savings are substantial. Over the span of a decade, the energy
saved per 1,000 G25 DécorLED lamps (including labor) equates to $140,000
(15W) and $184,000 (20W) when compared to equivalent incandescent lamps.
These are conservative figures without adjustments for inflation.
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock,
vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. Additionally,
with the use of multiple LEDs, an LED cluster lamp continues to provide
light even if one or more emitters fail unlike when the filament breaks
in an incandescent bulb. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years),
LEDs operate reliably year after year andare appropriate for
many applications. DécorLED is an ideal solution
for decorative and night task lighting applications including large
message panels, billboards, scoreboards, time and temperature signs,
arcade machines, casino accent light, theme and amusement parks, stage
lighting, carnivals, theaters and ornamental lighting.DécorLEDs
can be used as individual pixels in a large dot matrix screen, full
color screens, moving signs and displays.
