New Hi-Flux LED Slim Strip Lights for Architectural and Accent Lighting

LEDtronics® announces its new series of Hi-Flux LED Slim Strip Lights that come in a sealed enclosure with water-clear lens and are IP68-certified waterproof. With a great-looking strip illumination that provides even lighting without the buzzing and flickering that afflicts fluorescents, the TBL4520 series offers versatility in applications such as passenger interiors in RVs, buses and trains; task lighting, under cabinets, concealed lighting, edge lighting, cubicles, marine recreation areas, as well as coolers, freezers, retail store displays, and many more.

The construction of a clear polycarbonate cover over the LED tube provides increased protection and shielding against many environmental effects, allowing its placement in locations where typical lights would be more vulnerable to the elements. The sturdy aluminum bar offers a secure and easy installation, along with the easy-to-use mounting clips. Furthermore, the TBL4520 series strip lights come in a variety of 6, 12, 24 and 48 inch lengths to fit in many different locations, tight enclosures and spaces. Mounting clips that snap onto the back of the sturdy aluminum bar, and 120 VAC-to-12 VDC transformers are sold separately.

These clear LED Strip Lights come in three color temperatures: Warm White (2500 K to 3000 K), True White (5000 K to 5500 K) and Cool White (8000 K to 9000 K), all operating at 12 VDC. Each LED strip offers a wide viewing angle of 90 degrees.

The 6-inch Warm White uses 1.95 watts per module and puts out 168 lumens, while the True White uses 2.13 W and puts out 151 lumens, and the Cool White uses 2.03 W and puts out 143 lumens. The 12-inch Warm White uses 3.90 watts per module and puts out 335 lumens, while the True White uses 4.25 W and puts out 303 lumens, and the Cool White uses 4.05 W and puts out 286 lumens. The 24-inch Warm White uses 7.8 watts per module and puts out 670 lumens, the True White uses 8.5 W and puts out 605 lumens, the Cool White uses 8.1 W and puts out 572 lumens. The 48-inch Warm White uses 16.2 watts per module and puts out 1340 lumens, the True White uses 17 W and puts out 1210 lumens, and the Cool White uses 15.6 W and puts out 1143 lumens.

Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to shock, vibration, frequent on/off switching and environmental extremes. With an average life span of over 50,000 hours for white LEDs and a lumen maintenance of over 70 percent, LEDs operate more than 30 times longer than the equivalent incandescent lamp! Savings from reduced maintenance costs and downtime quickly return the capital investment expenditure!

LED Strip lights produce almost no heat, and require 80%-90% less operating power than equivalent incandescent or fluorescent lighting, making them as friendly to the environment as they are to the operating budget.

Pricing for the TBL4520 Series of Hi-Flux LED Slim Strip Lights: 6 inch = $9.15 each, 12 inch = $16.12 each, 24 inch = $25.25 each and the 48 inch = $45.50 each. Quantity discounts are available to qualified distributors. The TBL4520 Series come with a LEDtronics 3-year warranty, and are available through LEDtronics distributors. Availability is stock to 4 weeks for large-order requirements.
