Eco-Friendly Architectural & Landscape LED High-Power Floodlight Uses Only 18 Watts, Runs on 10-30 Volt DC Range

TORRANCE, CA — March 6, 2009 — LEDtronics® expands its offerings of LED-sourced outdoor lighting products with the next generation of GardenLED™ Series GDL002 FloodLED™.

The GDL002-8X2W-XPW FloodLED features 8 extra-pure white (6000K) high-power, one-watt LEDs mounted on a printed circuit board in a rugged metallic housing and sturdy base that all add up to a practically unbreakable and long-lasting light source.

The GDL002 is an environmentally friendly approach to outdoor lighting that provides ample light at 934 Lumens or 505 Total End Foot Candles, without generating light pollution, radiating excessive heat or consuming large amounts of energy that accompany the operation of an incandescent light. The GDL002-8X2W consumes only 18 watts of power compared to the power-hungry 40-watt or 100-watt incandescent floodlights it replaces, providing up to 90% energy savings over them. Operating on just 10-volt DC to 30VDC, this floodlight is the ideal illuminator to accompany solar-powered systems and other alternative-power-generating systems. Its low voltage requirement makes it safe for many outdoor uses. Other voltages and LED colors are available as options pending factory approval.

Compact, Versatile, Adjustable
The GLD002-8X2W unit’s compact size makes it easy to conceal among shrubs or under stairways; its light housing measures 8.875"L x 3.25"W x 7.25"H (225Lmm x 83Wmm x 184Hmm). This versatile, water-resistant LED floodlight fixture also can be installed on walls, upside-down or upright, to bathe surfaces in light. The head of the industry-standard fixture boasts an adjustable mount that can be regulated vertically to optimize the direction of the emitted LED light. Use the GDL002-8X2W FloodLED to light walkways, small signs, landscaping, building exits, walls, pictures, etc. Landscape architects, groundskeepers, casinos, amusement park lighting designers, building superintendents, facility management and environmentally aware consumers will find the GDL002 to be an excellent, efficient and extraordinarily long-lasting illuminator for a variety of applications as well as an ideal replacement for short-lived, energy-hungry incandescent lamps.

The Series GDL002-8X2W FloodLED complies with the worldwide Dark Skies initiative by eliminating the unwanted glare, light trespass and sky glow that accompany traditional incandescent lamps. Designed to maximize path illumination, its LEDs shine an 88-degree-wide beam of bright 934-lumen light in the direction where it is needed, reducing the amount of light lost to the sky and improving overall nighttime viewing.

Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shocks, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. White LEDs last up to 50,000 hours. That's almost 6 years if left on 24 hours a day! LED lamps perform well in applications subject to voltage dips or surges. Integrated current-limited resistors and polarity-protection diodes assure that no circuit modifications are required. Additionally, with the use of multiple LEDs, an LED lamp continues to provide light even if one or more emitters fail, unlike what befalls an incandescent bulb when its filament breaks. LED lamps use only 10% - 20% of the energy consumed by equivalent incandescent lamps. That combined with their maintenance-free operation results in substantial cost savings.

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 LED circuit board status indicators, surface mount diodes SMT LED, full-spectrum rainbow RGB LEDs and Infra-Red (IR) LEDs.

The GardenLED Series GDL002-8X2W-XPW-001 FloodLED is priced at $217.50 each and comes with a 3-year lamp warranty. Large-quantity discounts are available for qualified distributors. Availability is stock to 4-6 weeks for special requirements.
