NEXXUS LIGHTING INTRODUCES INDUSTRY’S FIRST LED LINE VOLTAGE FLOODLIGHT FOR GENERAL ILLUMINATION

Nexxus Lighting, Inc. (NASDAQ Capital Market: NEXS) today announced that its SV Lighting business unit has introduced the industry’s first LED floodlight for general illumination that operates on direct line voltage without the need for an internal or external power supply.

This breakthrough has produced the new SAVI SHO White Floodlight. Utilizing Seoul Semiconductor’s new Acriche LEDs, the SAVI SHO White Floodlight is a new white light LED floodlight for interior and exterior applications that can operate on a standard 120VAC supply. With patents pending on the technology, SV Lighting plans to launch additional direct 120 volt products for the commercial lighting market in 2008.

Although light emitting diodes have been lauded for their long life; 30,000 to 100,000 hours depending on color, they have required internal or external power supplies to convert line voltage down to low voltage to operate the LEDs. These power supplies add cost, can have a shorter life that the LEDs and can potentially be a weak link in the system. The new Savi SHO White Floodlight solves this problem by eliminating the need for any power supply. Simply connect the 120 volt supply wires to the color coded leads in the wiring compartment base, and you are ready to energize the unit.

The Savi SHO White Floodlight will be introduced at the Global Shop 2008 trade show at Chicago’s McCormick Place, March 18 – 20, 2008. Global Shop is the world's largest annual retail design and store marketing expo, attracting over 15,000 attendees annually. Buyers and decision makers attending Global Shop are looking for ways to improve their store’s interior and exterior designs, including lighting.
