LED Tubing has life span of 100,000-plus hours

Round RopeLED, housed within 0.5 in. dia, flexible PVC tube, measures 6.5 ft long (min) and employs 10 LEDs per foot spaced 1.10 in. apart. Product has weather-resistant construction suited for both outdoor and indoor use, and comes in red, blue, green, yellow, and white LED colors. Solid-state design is impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching, and environmental extremes.

Round RopeLED Runs circles Around the Incandescent Competition

TORRANCE, CA-June 27, 2003 - LEDtronics® announces Round RopeLED, its newest offering in LED (Light Emitting Diode) accent lighting. Housed within a flexible PVC tube with a diameter of 0.5" (13mm) and at a length of at least 6.5 feet (2m). Round RopeLED features 10 LEDs per foot (36 per meter) that are spaced, 1.10" (27.7mm) apart. RopeLED's weather-resistant 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... 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 comes standard in 120V; 12V DC and 240V are available as options. Outdoors uses include, but are not limited to, lighting decks, pathways, theme parks, trees, building edge decor lighting and driveways. Choose from red, blue, green, yellow and white LED colors. RopeLED tubes are marked at intervals where they can be cut, enabling you to customize the length or to splice together different colored RopeLED segments. RopeLED can be held in place with small plastic clips that snap onto the tube, and then nailed, screwed or glue to an adjacent surface.

Colored PVC tubes are not needed since LEDs emit colored light. The color is determined by the composition of the semiconductor material comprising the diode. Intensity and color remain stable over lamp's lifetime. LED technology is an energy-efficient light source; saving 80% - 90% of energy costs as compared with equivalent incandescent lighting. What's more, RopeLED doesn't 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 theaters.

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.
