TORRANCE, CA — August 1, 2003 — LEDtronics announces a new group of direct incandescent replacement 15mm Single-Contact Bayonet Base LED Lamps that incorporate optical-grade epoxy, advanced Light Emitting Diode (LED) technologies, standard single-contact bayonet bases and light-optimizing designs to produce vivid light. These sunlight-visible lamps are available with 40-LEDs, 30-LEDs and 18-LEDs. Four light emitting angles are offered: (1) 12°-15°; (2) 20-30°; (3) 40°-50° and (4) 120° -125°. Choose voltages from 12V to 28V AC or DC. Forty LED lamps draw between 1.4W to 2.7W, 30-LED lamps draw 1.2W to 2.0W, and 18-Led lamps use 1.0W to 1.7W of power. Colors available are Aqua Green (525nm), Incandescent White (4500K), Cool White (8,000K), Super Blue (470nm), Super Yellow (595nm) and Super Red (630nm). Infrared lamps are offered in wavelengths of 850nm, 880nm and 940nm.

Due to their solid-state construction, LEDtronics LEDs lamps are ideal for applications that are subjected to vibration, shock and environmental stress, all which reduce the life of incandescent lamps. LEDs feature almost instantaneous turn-on and turn-off without transients. Applications include indicators for process controls, aircraft instrumentation, elevator panels, automobile lighting, medical and scientific equipment, panel mount indicator lamps and other instances where long-lived, energy-efficient light sources are required. LED lamps last 30 - 50 times longer that the incandescent lamps they replace, and their low-current, high-efficiency operation delivers power savings of 80% - 90% or more. Additionally, LED lamps produce little or no heat resulting in lighted panels and switches that are cool-to-the-touch unlike those lit by incandescent lamps. LED technology with its inherent energy efficiency makes an excellent accompaniment to photovoltaic-based energy systems. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years), LEDs operate reliably year after year and are virtually maintenance free.

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 LED Lamps, low-cost snap-in and relampable Panel Mount LED Lamps and holders, 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.

Prices for 15mm Medium-Base, Single-Contact Bayonet LED lamps vary depending on LED color, cluster size, base type and voltage. Forty-LED lamps: $40.00 -$76.00; 30-LED lamps: $36.65 - $68.00; and 18-LED lamps: $33.25 - $60.00. Samples are available to qualified customers.
