TORRANCE, CA — April 10, 2003 — Furthering its commitment to providing energy efficient, environmentally safe and sustainable lighting, LEDtronics introduces the Series SLR001 and SLR002 Solar-Powered LED 12-Volt Lighting Systems. These systems include everything necessary to convert sunlight to the electricity needed for indoor lighting: Solar panels, 12-foot 16-gauge cables, 3 amp 20-hour batteries, voltage regulators, terminal blocks, 3 white LED lamps, and light sockets. The top-of-the-line SLR001 System features a 10Watt solar panel and three 12/14V white 24-LED cluster lamps. A fully-charged battery powers the high-intensity 24-LED cluster lamps for approximately 8 hours. The 24-LED lamps throw light in a 40( spread and emit 36 end lumens per bulb. The lower cost SLR002 System has a 5Watt solar panel and three 12/14V white 9-LED cluster lamps that produce 14 end lumens per lamp. The SLR002 drives the lamps for 16 hours, but with less light output when compared to the SLR001.

These utility-independent systems are excellent for emergency lighting in the event of a power failure, for applications that lack access to conventional power, and for off-grid sites such as remote cabins and offshore oil platforms. LED lamps with their low power requirements and high-intensity light output enable the use of smaller and less expensive solar power components than those required by incandescent lamps. Additionally, due to their low power draws, LED lamps are ideal for use with alternative energy systems like solar and wind power. Using LED lamps with renewable energy sources helps to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels. LEDs directional light output promotes compliance with the Dark Skies initiative, a worldwide movement to reduce light pollution, by focusing the light on the task at hand.

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), LEDs operate reliably year-after-year and are virtually maintenance free. The SLR Series eliminate the hazards (e.g., fires, burns, fumes, spills and explosions), trouble and fuss of using propane or kerosene fueled lighting. Under sunny skies and moderate latitudes, the solar panel recharges a dead battery in 12 hours. The rechargeable battery not only saves the operator hundreds of dollars, but also lessens the environmental impact associated with one-time-use batteries.

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. Our inventive product line encompasses an array of direct incandescent lamp replacement Based LED Lamps, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LED Lamps and holders, high intensity sunlight-visible Discrete LEDs, PCB LEDs circuit board status indicators, surface mount diodes SMT LEDs, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.

The Series SLR001 is priced at $365 per unit. The price for the Series SLR002 is $240. Ask for datasheet #153.
