TORRANCE, CA—August 13, 2007—LEDtronics® announces its latest
generation of PAR20 LED Short-Neck light bulbs. These direct incandescent replacement
bulbs combine advanced Light Emitting Diode (LED) technologies, standard 25mm
Edison screw bases and light-optimizing designs to produce vivid light.
PAR20 LED bulbs are available in three light emitting angles (15°, 20°,
and 22°) and in 120 volts AC. Other voltages like 12V to 240V AC or DC are
available for qualified customers. PAR20 Short-Neck LED bulbs measure 3.50 inches
long and have a 2.53 inch diameter making them ideal for small spotlighting
tasks, artwork accenting, and recessed lighting for ambient illumination. With
a power draw of only 2.5 Watts the savings quickly add up over the standard
PAR20 incandescent bulbs they replace. The standard PAR20 LED colors available
are Warm White and XWarm White (3000 Kelvin), Cool White (7000 Kelvin), Super
Red (633nm) and Aqua Green (525nm). Other LED colors as well as Infrared lamps
are offered for qualified customers and quantities.
With up to eleven years of LED operating life and five sunlight-visible LED
light colors from which to select, solid-state PAR20 LED bulbs are a practical
and economical way for architects, retail store display creators, entertainment
designers and other lighting professionals to integrate ornamental illumination
into maintenance-intensive applications. Additionally, LED cluster lamps continue
to provide light even if one or more emitters fail-unlike when the filament
breaks inside incandescent bulbs. LEDtronics' PAR20 LED bulbs are designed to
perform well in systems subjected to voltage dips or surges. Integrated current-limited
resistors ensure that no circuit modifications are required.
Colored lenses or filters are not needed since LEDs emit colored light that
is determined by the composition of the semiconductor material comprising the
diode. Intensity and color remain stable over the lamp's lifetime. LED technology
is an energy-efficient directional light source; saving 80% - 90% of energy
costs compared to a 30- or 50-Watt incandescent PAR20 lamps. Because LEDs use
very little energy, produce little-to-no heat, and are virtually maintenance
free the cost savings are substantial.
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock,
vibration, frequent switching, and environmental extremes. With an average lifespan
of up to 100,000-plus hours (11 years)-up to 50,000 hours for white LEDs-LED
bulbs operate reliably year after year. PAR20 LED bulbs are the ideal solution
for decorative task lighting and nighttime applications including tracklight
fixtures, reading lights, and small ceiling cans. Other applications include
large message panels, billboards, scoreboards, time-and-temperature signs, arcade
machines, casino accent illumination, and lighting for stages, theaters, carnivals,
theme parks and amusement parks. PAR20 LED bulbs can be used as individual pixels
in large dot-matrix screens, digital time/temperature signs or full-color display
Prices for PAR20 LED bulbs range from $84.00 each to $129.60 each depending
on LED technology and LED color. Large quantity discounts are available. Availability
is stock to 4 - 6 weeks. PAR20 LED bulbs carry a 3-year limited warranty.
