Japanese power utilities warm to Dialight’s LED lighting

Applied LED technology specialist Dialight plc has had meetings with twelve major Japanese power utilities together with its distributor I-Spec during the 2009 NOA Conference in Nagoya, Japan on October 1 and 2. The NOA Conference is jointly organized by US Consulate Commercial Services and the power utility companies in Japan, this year with Chubu Electric Power Ltd as the co-organizer, and its objective is to introduce US companies offering compelling technology products to Japan’s power utilities.

Japan has a challenging mandate to reduce its CO2 level by 60% by 2050 and the power utilities are putting in all possible effort to achieve this goal by implementing renewable energy, nuclear energy, increasing productivity and operational efficiency.

Jason Loh, Dialight’s Director of Sales for Asia Pacific, commented: “We introduced the power utilities to our energy efficient LED lighting products and illustrated how they can be used in facilities all over Japan, helping them to achieve their goals in reducing CO2. Several of the companies expressed interest in procuring our products as soon as we obtain local certification for hazardous locations. This process is already underway and it’s our intention to have certification confirmed in the near future.”

Yoshinori Sugiura, Managing Director of I-Spec said: “I am glad to be working alongside Dialight in introducing their energy efficient products to the Japan industry. Dialight products are designed, manufactured and certified to industry’s highest standards and I am confident that they will fit well in the industrial market that we are pursuing.”

Dialight expands its 657 Series

Dialight expands its 657 Series family of products to include versions with flat and domed lenses, ideal for outdoor use.

FARMINGDALE, NJ (October 12, 2009) – Dialight, the applied LED technology specialist, now offers a flat and domed version of the successful 657 series panel-mount indicator. The new indicators feature a fully-sealed and potted design, making them impervious to dust and water intrusion and in compliance with IP67/NEMA 4X standards.

Using the same high-impact, UV-stabilized lens material as the right-angle version, the indicators are available with tinted, diffused lenses in red, green, yellow, blue, and orange, in addition to a white diffused style to eliminate ‘phantom effect’ in outdoor applications.

These rugged, daylight viewable indicators are engineered for outdoor applications such as lane control and signage, as well as construction, transit and military vehicles – anywhere that a vibration-resistant light source is required.

The energy efficient LEDs used in these indicators provide up to 100,000 hours of operation, far exceeding the typical life of traditional light sources.

The family of products is available through Dialight’s global network of authorized distributors.

DIALIGHT announces supply agreement for “smart grid” disconnect switch

Dialight plc., reports the signing of a supply agreement for its PowerPulse™ 200-amp disconnect/reconnect load switch in support of the United States Advanced Meter Infrastructure Initiative, a move to introduce "smart" metering for the "smart grid".

This exclusive agreement with one of Dialight's existing customers is initially for two years and could represent more than $15,000,000 in revenues over 2010 and 2011. Whilst Dialight is currently shipping to this customer, the agreement assumes a significant increase in volume.

In the United States there are more than 100 million domestic electricity meters to be upgraded to "smart metering" and this conversion is in its infancy.

Dialight CEO, Roy Burton, comments: "We are very pleased to have this extended agreement and see it as endorsement of our capabilities in this safety conscious and demanding market."
