LEDtronics® adds two new low-voltage, single-contact, bayonet-based LED bulbs to its series of ultrabright, direct incandescent replacement lamps in automotive, accent lighting, and compact illumination applications that offer up to 90 percent energy savings.
The 8-LED B608-SIW-006M uses only 0.8 watts and produces a luminous intensity of 63 candelas, while the 18-LED B618-SIW-006M uses 1.7 watts and produces 77 candelas. Both bipolar lamps use a 15mm single-contact bayonet for lines running 6 volts DC and readily adjust to direct-current polarity. They are ideal in maintenance-intensive and low-voltage applications such as automotive and gaming candle indicators, indicator lights for instrumentation, panel mount pilot lights, as well as accent and task lighting. They are also suitable for use in open luminaires.
Both compact LED bulbs provide 3000K warm-white illumination with an inline beam angle of 55 to 60 degrees, with B608 offering more than 47 lumens at an efficacy of 57.5 lm/W, while B618 produces 85 lumens at an efficacy of 48.8 lm/W. They boast lumen maintenance of over 70 percent at 50,000 hours, operating reliably year after year within a wide operating temperature range of ~-22°F to ~+122°F (-30°C to +50°C).
These energy-efficient and long-lived illuminators come with a single-contact bayonet Ba15s brass base and a white Rynite FR530 sleeve. Their solid-state design renders them impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching, and environmental extremes. They provide sharper, higher intensity illumination and better visibility than standard lamps, and achieve full brightness more rapidly, with a faster turn-on and reaction time compared to incandescent lamps.
All this translates to maintenance-free operation results with substantial cost savings.
The new B6x8-SIW-006M LEDtronics compact, ultrabright, low-voltage SC bayonet-based LED lamps comes with an unconditional three-year U.S. factory warranty, and they are available through LEDtronics distributors. Options available for large quantities and qualified applications: Other colors and white color temperatures, other voltages, other miniature, and subminiature bases –E12, E14, E17, Ba15d, etc.
