Nexxus Lighting Issued New Patent for Submersible LED Lighting Technology

Nexxus Lighting, Inc. (NASDAQ CAPITAL:NEXS), a world leader in advanced lighting technology, including solid-state LED and fiber optic lighting systems and controls used in commercial, architectural, signage, swimming pool and retail lighting, today announced that it has been issued a new patent related to its LED lighting technology. US patent number 7,303,301 is for a unique method of heat sinking an LED light engine in a lighting fixture when it is submerged in a body of water.

This technology, along with the company's other issued patents, provides extensive intellectual property coverage for products used in pool, spa, fountain and commercial landscaping applications. The company plans to actively pursue licensing agreements for its technology from manufacturers of applicable products.

"As solid-state lighting expands its penetration into white light illumination, submersible applications such as fountains, pools and architectural water features are being transformed by digital technology. In order for these new high brightness LED arrays to achieve their promoted 30,000 to 50,000 hour rated life, we are developing new thermal management techniques to provide proper heat sinking," stated Mike Bauer, President and CEO.

Nexxus Lighting now holds 24 issued patents and through its research and development efforts are continually evaluating new intellectual property ideas that have the potential to be incorporated into advanced solid-state lighting fixtures and control systems.
