  |  Download Hi-res Print Version

TORRANCE, CA — July 9, 2001 — LEDtronics® combines the renowned reliability of LEDs with a flexible carrier to provide dependable illumination for channel letters and similar signage applications. In addition to reducing power usage by 80% - 90%, PathLEDs™ eliminate many of the shortcomings of neon or fluorescent lamps such as heat, broken tubes and ballast failures. Individual LEDs feature 140º-wide viewing angles, and emit bright illumination that fills the entire letterform. LEDs are wired in parallel and function independently so if one LED fails, the remaining LEDs continue to operate!

Standard voltages range from 2V to 28V. PathLED™ comes on EIA-standard, 8mm, seven-foot reels and may be cut to any length. Select from three sizes of LEDs: (1) 5mm, (2) 3mm or (3) SMT. Spacing options for the LEDs are 3, 6 and 12 inches. LEDtronics offers PathLED™s in six colors, several related hues and intensities. Colors available are Green (565nm), Red (660nm), Yellow (585nm), Blue (430nm), Orange (612nm) and White (8000K). In addition to channel-letter applications, PathLED™ may be used in buildings, bridges, amusement parks, theaters, stairways, emergency exit pathway lighting, etc. . . . PathLED™ is immune to RF interference. Custom colors, spacing configurations and voltages may be built with factory approval.

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 quickly return the capital investment expenditure! LED lamps produce almost no heat and require 80% - 90% less operating power than equivalent incandescents, making them as friendly to the environment as they are to the operating budget.

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 LEDs, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LEDs, 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.

PathLED light pricing is based on LED color, type and spacing. Availability is 4 – 6 weeks for special requirements. Samples are available for qualified customers.
