American Illumination Unveils Light Stripz™ Linear LED Engines for Energy-Efficient Lighting Applications

American Illumination, Inc.® is introducing the Light Stripz™ (LS) in styles from 3” to 72” in length. They are ideal for step lights, sconces, retail/display lighting, border/perimeter lighting, backlighting, furniture lights and more. Lighting manufacturers and designers will enjoy these linear LED solutions that are adaptable to multiple applications while featuring low energy consumption, multiple CCT and voltage options, and various levels of output.

Various Lengths Available:
Starting at 2.75”, the LSS model is a rectangular LED array geared toward step light retrofits and is available in a standard flat configuration or with a 1.25” drop bracket.  The linear LS series includes LSM (3”), LSL (6”), LSX (12”), LSY (24”), LS36 (36”), LS48 (48”), LS60 (60”) and LS72 (72”).  All linear Stripz have a narrow width under 1.25”, thus making the LS series great for slim fixtures and small to large installation locations. The Stripz can be easily retrofitted for T8 applications; end pieces can be fitted directly into the fluorescent socket and the flat diffuser can be replaced with a semi-circle one to resemble the T8 look.

All-in-One Indoor or Outdoor Lighting Solution:
Light Stripz™ include various features such as an internal constant current driver, customizable 120º diffuser and integrated heat sink that limits the user’s need to purchase additional components for the system.  Safe to install indoors or in sealed outdoor landscape fixtures, the potted LED compartment prevents moisture from disturbing the performance of the Stripz in most environments.

Multiple Colors, Light Output:
Light Stripz™ are offered with various Correlated Color Temperatures (CCT), two different LED types, and are dimmable from 0-100%.  White colors include Warm White (3000K), Natural White (4000K), and Cool White (6000K), while single colors such as Red, Blue, Green, or Amber are also available.  Standard Light Stripz feature the ultra-efficient 3528 SMD LED’s, while users can upgrade to the higher output 5252 SMD LED models if more “punch” is needed.  Certain simple dimmers will allow dimming from 0-100% which is great for mood lighting interior/residential applications.

Easy Plug-and-Play Installation:
The Light Stripz™ are easy to install and combine, either in parallel or daisy chained and are the perfect solution for indoor or outdoor linear surfaces.  Complete plug-and-play systems are available with end-to-end male-to-female connectors and include a lead and terminal unit.  The sleek look, low-profile design and high light output make Light Stripz™ an ideal LED solution for retrofit or state-of-the-art lighting applications.

American Illumination also offers custom design services to create light engines for unique luminaires and specialty applications.  For samples or additional information on the Light Stripz™, contact American Illumination at (310) 202-6500 or visit http://www.American-Illumination.com.
