TORRANCE, CA — May 26, 2004 — LEDtronics® announces price reductions for its sunlight-visible AUT-1157/1156 15mm Bayonet Based and AUT-3157/3156
Wedge Based LED automotive bulbs. LEDtronics' automotive LED Lamps are designed
to be plug-compatible replacements for incandescent 1157/1156 and 3157/3156
bulbs in brake/turn/tail and backup lights in most cars, motorcycles, forklifts,
ATVs and trailers. Price reductions range from 15% - 40% depending on the model.
LEDtronics' patented LED automotive bulbs are the brightest LED bulbs on the
market. Our automotive LED lamps either feature 24 Super Red (633nm), Super
Yellow (595nm) or Cool White (8000K) 5mm LEDs that are configured to maximize
brightness and to fill the entire light fixture. Eighteen LEDs direct light
straight through the vehicle's fixture. An additional six LEDs are arranged
perpendicular to the lamp base and radiate light onto the light fixture's reflector
to illuminate the entire surface of the fixture. Total light output is as follows:
Super Red emits 100 end footcandles, Super Yellow produces 72 end footcandles
and Cool White generates 124 end footcandles. AUT-1157 LEDs feature built-in
current-limiting resistors and polarity-protection diodes to assure that circuit
modifications are not required.
By integrating solid-state electronics with advanced LED technology LEDtronics'
LED lamps offer automotive applications years of reliable performance, which
represents potentially millions of dollars in reduced repairs and ancillary
costs, as well as faster turn-on times than conventional incandescent lamps.
Automotive LED lamps operate 0.2 seconds quicker than incandescents. That's
an extra 19 feet of response time at 65 mph for the trailing vehicle. [Distance
traveled = (mph)(5280 feet/mile)(1/3600 hour/sec)(0.2 sec.)] The results? Less
rear-end collisions, which are the second most frequent type automotive accidents.
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.
LED Automotive bulbs are priced from $24.50 to $58.00 each, depending on the
model and LED color. Quantity discounts are offered. Availability is 4 – 6
weeks. Samples are available for qualified customers. For additional information
