Rectangular RopeLED Approaches Accent Lighting From A New Angle

LED Rope Lighting Fits Snugly Against Right Angle Surfaces

August 5, 2003 -- Series RPLD02 Rectangular RopeLED measures 0.4 x 0.7 in. and features 21 LEDs/ft spaced 0.55 in. apart. Tubes are marked at intervals where they can be cut, allowing user to customize length or splice together different colored segments. Weather - resistant PVC makes RopeLED suited for outdoor and indoor uses. Lighting comes standard in 120 V; 12 Vdc and 240 V are available options. Average life span of LEDs is 100,000-plus hours.
Rectangular RopeLED (Series RPLD02LED Light Emitting Diode) accent lighting measures 10.5mm high by 18mm wide. Its rectangular profile enables it to fit snugly against surfaces that feature right angles. Rectangular RopeLED features 72 LEDs per meter that are spaced 13.9mm apart. RopeLED tubes are marked at intervals where they can be cut to custom lengths or spliced together into different coloured RopeLED segments. They are available in red, blue, green, yellow and white LED colours. RopeLED comes standard in 120V; 12V DC and 240V options are available. RopeLED is easy to install. Simply connect the RopeLED to the appropriate end of a power cord cable (purchased separately) then plug the power cord into a standard electrical outlet. RopeLED can be held in place with small plastic clips that snap onto the tube, and then nailed, screwed or glued to an adjacent surface. RopeLED's weather-resistant PVC construction makes it suitable for both outdoor and indoor uses. RopeLED can be employed indoors for emergency pathway lighting, to accent staircases, closets, cabinets, ceilings, etc. . . . Outdoor uses include lighting decks, pathways, theme parks, trees, building edge decor, lighting and driveways. Coloured PVC tubes are not needed since LEDs emit coloured light. The colour is determined by the composition of the semiconductor material comprising the diode. Intensity and colour remain stable over a lamp’s lifetime. LED technology is an energy-efficient light source, saving 80% - 90% of energy costs as compared with equivalent incandescent lighting. RopeLED does not get hot so there is no risk of getting burned when you touch it. Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of 100,000-plus hours (11 years) for LEDs, RopeLEDs operate reliably year after year and provide architects, retail store display creators, entertainment designers and other lighting professionals with a practical way to integrate ornamental illumination into maintenance-intensive applications such as casinos, theme and amusement parks, stage lighting, carnivals, and theatres.
