TORRANCE, CA — July 22, 2003 — LEDtronics® announces Series RPLD02 Rectangular RopeLED, its newest offering in LED (Light
Emitting Diode) accent lighting. Measuring 0.4”H (10.5mm) by 0.7”W
(18mm), Series RPLD02 rectangular profile enables it to fit snugly
against surfaces that feature right angles. Rectangular RopeLED features
per foot (72 per meter) that are spaced 0.55” (13.9mm) apart. RopeLED
tubes are marked at intervals where they can be cut, allowing you to
customize the length or to splice together different colored RopeLED
from red, blue, green, yellow and white LED colors. RopeLED comes standard
in 120V; 12V DC and 240V are available options.
RopeLED is easy to install. Simply connect the RopeLED to the appropriate
end of a power cord cable (purchased separately) then plug the power cord
into a standard electrical outlet. RopeLED can be held in place with small
plastic clips that snap onto the tube, and then nailed, screwed or glue
to an adjacent surface. RopeLED’s weather-resistant PVC construction
makes it suitable for both outdoor and indoor uses. RopeLED can be employed
indoors for emergency pathway lighting, to accent staircases, closets,
cabinets, ceilings, etc. . . . Outdoors uses include, but are not limited
to, lighting decks, pathways, theme parks, trees, building edge décor
lighting and driveways.
Colored PVC tubes are not needed since LEDs emit colored light. The color
is determined by the composition of the semiconductor material comprising
the diode. Intensity and color remain stable over lamp’s lifetime.
LED technology is an energy-efficient light source; saving 80% - 90% of
energy costs as compared with equivalent incandescent lighting. What’s
more, RopeLED doesn’t get hot so there is no risk of getting burned
when you touch it.
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical
shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With
an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years) for LEDs, RopeLEDs
operate reliably year after year and provide architects, retail store
display creators, entertainment designers and other lighting professionals
with a practical way to integrate ornamental illumination into maintenance-intensive
applications such as casinos, theme and amusement parks, stage lighting,
carnivals, and theaters.
Prices for RopeLED range from $189.00 - $82.00 per meter depending on
LED color. Large quantity discounts are available. Availability is stock
to 4 – 6 weeks for special requirements. For additional information
