TORRANCE, CA - August 13, 2007 - LEDtronics® announces its latest generation of PAR20 LED Short-Neck light bulbs. These direct incandescent replacement bulbs combine advanced Light Emitting Diode (LED) technologies, standard 25mm Edison screw bases and light-optimizing designs to produce vivid light. PAR20 LED bulbs are available in three light emitting angles (15°, 20°, and 22°) and in 120 volts AC. Other voltages like 12V to 240V AC or DC are available for qualified customers. PAR20 Short-Neck LED bulbs measure 3.50 inches long and have a 2.53 inch diameter making them ideal for small spotlighting tasks, artwork accenting, and recessed lighting for ambient illumination. With a power draw of only 2.5 Watts the savings quickly add up over the standard PAR20 incandescent bulbs they replace. The standard PAR20 LED colors available are Warm White and XWarm White (3000 Kelvin), Cool White (7000 Kelvin), Super Red (633nm) and Aqua Green (525nm). Other LED colors as well as Infrared lamps are offered for qualified customers and quantities.
With up to eleven years of LED operating life and five sunlight-visible LED light colors from which to select, solid-state PAR20 LED bulbs are a practical and economical way for architects, retail store display creators, entertainment designers and other lighting professionals to integrate ornamental illumination into maintenance-intensive applications. Additionally, LED cluster lamps continue to provide light even if one or more emitters fail-unlike when the filament breaks inside incandescent bulbs. LEDtronics' PAR20 LED bulbs are designed to perform well in systems subjected to voltage dips or surges. Integrated current-limited resistors ensure that no circuit modifications are required.
Colored lenses or filters are not needed since LEDs emit colored light that is determined by the composition of the semiconductor material comprising the diode. Intensity and color remain stable over the lamp's lifetime. LED technology is an energy-efficient directional light source; saving 80% - 90% of energy costs compared to a 30- or 50-Watt incandescent PAR20 lamps. Because LEDs use very little energy, produce little-to-no heat, and are virtually maintenance free the cost savings are substantial.
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching, and environmental extremes. With an average lifespan of up to 100,000-plus hours (11 years)-up to 50,000 hours for white LEDs-LED bulbs operate reliably year after year. PAR20 LED bulbs are the ideal solution for decorative task lighting and nighttime applications including tracklight fixtures, reading lights, and small ceiling cans. Other applications include large message panels, billboards, scoreboards, time-and-temperature signs, arcade machines, casino accent illumination, and lighting for stages, theaters, carnivals, theme parks and amusement parks. PAR20 LED bulbs can be used as individual pixels in large dot-matrix screens, digital time/temperature signs or full-color display screens.
Prices for PAR20 LED bulbs range from $84.00 each to $129.60 each depending on LED technology and LED color. Large quantity discounts are available. Availability is stock to 4 - 6 weeks. PAR20 LED bulbs carry a 3-year limited warranty.
