DDP's LED lamp reduces power consumption 85% compared to incandescent bulbs

September 26, 2008--DDP (El Segundo, CA), a provider of engineered light-emitting diode (LED) solutions, has developed a 120 VAC line voltage lamp that reduces power consumption and maintenance costs. Designated the 120MBLS-X-CX, the wide-angle LED operates to maximum of 130VAC, while drawing less than 8 mA--85% lower than the power consumption of a standard 120MB incandescent light bulb.

September 26, 2008--DDP (El Segundo, CA), a provider of engineered light-emitting diode (LED) solutions, has developed a 120 VAC line voltage lamp that reduces power consumption and maintenance costs. Designated the 120MBLS-X-CX, the wide-angle LED operates to maximum of 130VAC, while drawing less than 8 mA--85% lower than the power consumption of a standard 120MB incandescent light bulb.

In addition, the lamp features a shunt resistor to eliminate transient current and prevent a false positive indication by the LED. "Our energy-efficient 120VAC lamp consumes power at a low level and features an operating life of upwards of 100,000 hours, making it an ideal replacement of 120MB incandescent bulbs in most any industrial indicator lighting application," said Tony Toniolo, DDP president. "Unlike incandescent bulbs, LEDs are not subject to catastrophic failure when operated within design parameters, making it a reliable device with a life of up to 100,000 hours. An incandescent bulb generates heat as well as light and as a result the standard incandescent bulb has an unpredictable lifetime due to risk of filament burn out."

The 120MBLS-X-CX is available in a variety of color options including red, amber, blue, green, and white. Typical light output is 15 lumens, comparable to the 120MB incandescent. Pricing is $9.00 a piece in quantities of 100 with the option to include multiple colors in one order. Delivery time is one week.
