TORRANCE, Calif., June 30, 2021 – Continuing to expand on a product category that it has been manufacturing for over 38 years, LEDtronics® introduces its latest LED Machine Status Indicator Bulbs that directly replace incandescents in critical instrument status indication applications. These bulbs are particularly ideal for slot machine candles, casino gaming and maker lamps.
The W305SM series of omnidirectional miniature-based bulbs illuminate colored lenses with a much brighter light intensity, while remaining energy-efficient and tolerant of higher temperatures. Having an ultra-bright machine status light is a necessity in casino gaming applications for quick identification of the status of slot machine candles and other machines in a typically bright and high-traffic casino environment.
This newest line of industry-leading LED bulbs features a T3¼ (9mm) wedge base with bipolar terminals. The compact design of these indicator bulbs makes them ideal for easy installation into tight spaces in enclosed fixtures. They can be directly installed, requiring no modifications to the socket or to the circuit that supplies power.
Depending on the voltage and LED light color, power consumption ranges from only 0.6 to 1.8 watts, offering luminous intensity from 25 to 85 lumens and efficacy values of 36 to 54 lumens per watt. The series also has a maximum candela brightness value that ranges from 2399 mcd to 8661 mcd. They can be specified in virtually any combination of colors and operating voltages to fit the customer’s specific configuration and voltage requirements.
Featuring a 320-degree, no-shadow beam pattern, these omnidirectional LED bulbs provide higher-intensity illumination, better visibility, and uniform lighting compared to incandescent and halogens. They have lumen maintenance of over 70% at 15,000 hours. Unlike incandescents, they generate minimal heat, produce virtually no UV radiation, and do not emit RF interference.
The solid-state, rugged polycarbonate design of the LEDtronics W305SM series bulbs renders them resistant to electrical/mechanical shock and vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. They have a wide operating temperature range of ~-40°F to ~+212°F.
They come in a choice of four white color temperatures in 24V AC/DC voltages: 1800K Soft White, 3000K Warm White, 4000K Natural White, 5000K Pure White; and 4000K Natural White in 14V and 28V AC/DC voltages. They replace 24V or 28V AC/DC glass miniature wedge bulbs and color incandescent bulbs when used under a color-tinted lens.
The new W305SM series of LEDtronics Ultra Bright Miniature Wedge Based LED Bulbs comes with an unconditional 3-year U.S. factory warranty, and they are available through LEDtronics distributors. Other voltages, colors and beam angles are available for qualified volume orders.
