TORRANCE, CA — June 27, 2003 — LEDtronics® announces Round RopeLED, its newest offering in LED (Light Emitting Diode) accent
lighting. Housed within a flexible PVC tube with a diameter of 0.5” (13mm)
and at a length of at least 6.5 feet (2m), Round RopeLED features 10
LEDs per foot (36 per meter) that are spaced 1.10” (27.7mm) apart.
weather-resistant 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. .
. . 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 comes standard in 120V;
12V DC and 240V are available as options. Outdoors uses include, but
limited to, lighting decks, pathways, theme parks, trees, building
edge décor lighting and driveways. Choose from red, blue, green,
yellow and white LED colors. RopeLED tubes are marked at intervals
can be cut, enabling you to customize the length or to splice together
different colored RopeLED segments. 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.
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 $9.00 - $42.00 per meter depending on LED
color. Large quantity discounts are available. Availability is stock to
4 – 6 weeks for special requirements. For additional information
