Views: 59

Torrance, California, USA – Continuing to expand its offerings of LED indicators for industrial, medical and other controls and retrofit panel mount applications, LEDtronics® introduces new additions to its family of bolt-on, non-relampable and front-mounting panel indicators with screw terminals, featuring various color options and lens types.

The new series of direct incandescent-replacement LED lights for mounting in holes of Ø0.681 inch (Ø17.3mm) diameter is an excellent choice for machine tool applications as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning control panels; medical equipment and signal and pilot lights, among many others. They feature slotted 0.05 inch tab terminals for panels no thicker than 0.180 inch (4.57mm) and a choice of cylindrical top hat or dome lens types.

Offering energy savings with a much lower power consumption of only 0.5 watts or less, these indicator lamps provide sunlight-visible LED light in super yellow, super red or aqua green colours, with a viewing angle of 10 to 80 degrees for the dome lens units, and 20 and 80 degrees for the flat, top-hat lens units, depending on lens colour.

They are rated for 28VDC input voltage, with the dome lens units providing illumination of 1 to 2.3 lumens and a luminous intensity ranging from 1.3 to 2.4 maximum candela, while the cylindrical flat-lens units offer 34 and 76 lumens and a luminous intensity of 44 and 93 maximum candela. The series operates on an input current ranging between 0.08 to 0.017 amps.

The PTx780-028B/WP Series comes in nickel-coated brass housing, a slotted 0.05-inch, brass-coated terminal, a nylon base, and a polycarbonate lens. An integrated series resistor prevents short circuiting, eliminating the necessity of special fuses.

They mount to the front of a panel, accommodating panels up to 0.3 inch (7.62mm) in thickness. They are also lightweight – weighing only 1.0 ounce (28.35 grams).

These durable LED lamps provide years of reliable performance with sustained colour fidelity and energy efficiency, with IP65 protection rating – they are water-tight and splash-proof for outdoor locations, operating in a wide temperature range of -30°C to +80°C (-22°F to 176°F).

The new LEDtronics series PTD780-0xx-028B/WP (dome lens) and PTF780-0xx-028B/WP (cylindrical top-hat lens) panel front mounting, bolt-on indicator LED lamps come with an unconditional 3-year U.S. factory warranty, and are available through LEDtronics distributors. Other options, such as standard voltages, other LED colours, bulb styles or tabs are available for qualified volume orders.
