TORRANCE, Calif., May 8, 2006 - LED manufacturer LEDtronics announces the
availability of the BSD-1838 14 V T1-1/4 twist lock base mount neo wedge bulb,
which it said can be used in a variety of instrument panels. The bulb is available
in yellow or red to allow versatile lighting for applications such as dashboards,
air conditioning indicators, button lamps, gauge illumination, warning markers,
headlight switches, PC board lamps, or even lighting for jet skis and boats.
LEDtronicsWedge.jpgAccording to LEDtronics, the BSD-1838-0UR LED emits a luminous
red color using 14 V at a viewing angle of 125°. Giving off a pleasing yellow
color at a 125° angle, the BSD-1838-0UY LED also uses 14 V. Both these LEDs
are highly durable and reliable and require no socket. Installation can be done
using an easy twist-to-lock method to ensure a secure electrical contact. These
LEDs eliminate many of the shortcomings of conventional indicator lamps, remaining
vibrant and easy to see when old traditional lamps begin to dim and sometimes
fail completely, the company said.
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching
and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours
(11 years), LED lamps operate more than 20 times longer than the equivalent
incandescent lamp. Savings from reduced maintenance costs and downtime offer
a quick return on the investment. LED lamps produce almost no heat and require
80 to 90 percent less operating power than equivalent incandescents, making
them as friendly to the environment as they are to the operating budget, LEDtronics
The BSD-1838 14 V T1-1/4 twist mount neo wedge bulbs retail for $4.50 for each
LED; large quantity discounts are available. Availability is stock to 4–6
weeks for special requirements. Twist mount wedge bulbs carry a one-year limited
warranty. For additional information on how to incorporate wedge bulb into your
