TORRANCE, CA — July 17, 2007 — LEDtronics® announces its latest generation of R30 LED Reflector spotlight bulbs. These direct incandescent replacement bulbs combine advanced Light Emitting Diode (LED) technologies, standard 25mm Edison bases and light optimizing designs to produce vivid light. R30 LED bulbs are available in five light emitting angles (15°, 20°, 30°, 40° and 95°) and in 120 volts AC. Other voltages from 12V to 240V—AC or DC—are available for qualified customers. With a power draw of only 4.5Watts the savings add up quickly. R30 LED colors available are Warm White 3000 Kelvin, Pure White 5500Kelvin, Cool White 8000Kelvin, 633nm Red, 592nm Yellow, 525nm Aqua Green and 470nm Blue. Infrared lamps are offered in wavelengths of 850nm, 880nm and 940nm.
Having LED operating lives of up to eleven years and seven sunlight-visible LED light colors—as well as infrared—from which to select, solid-state R30 LED bulbs are the practical and economical way for architects, display designers, visual merchandisers, entertainment designers and other lighting professionals to integrate ornamental illumination into what were formerly maintenance-intensive applications. Furthermore, an LED cluster lamp continues to provide light even if one or more emitters fail—unlike when the filament fails in an incandescent bulb. R30 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 life. LED technology is an energy-efficient light source; saving 80% – 90% of energy costs compared to a 55- or 65Watt incandescent R30 lamp. Because LEDs use very little energy 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 100,000-plus hours (11 years)—up to 50,000 hours for white LEDs—LED bulbs operate reliably year after year and are appropriate for many energy-saving utilizations. R30 LED bulbs are the ideal solution for decorative and nighttime task-lighting applications including large message panels, billboards, scoreboards, time-and-temperature signs, arcade machines, casino accent lighting, theme-and-amusement parks, stage lighting, carnivals, theaters, as uplights/downlights for wall-washing, tree-washing, and other decorative lighting. R30 LED bulbs can be used as individual pixels in large dot-matrix screens, digital time/temperature signs, or full-color display screens.
Prices for R30 LED bulbs range from $82.74 to $154.74 each depending on LED technology and LED color. Large quantity discounts are available. Availability is stock to 4 – 6 weeks for special requirements. R30 LED bulbs carry a three-year limited warranty.
