Dialight announces major European order for LED traffic signals

Dialight to supply energy saving retro-fit LED traffic signals to the Turkish market.

Applied LED lighting technology specialist Dialight plc (LSE: DIA.L) today announced that it is to supply 20,000 of its state-of-the-art, central light source LED traffic signals to the Turkish market. Initial shipments have already commenced and will continue into 2010. While this order is substantial, it represents only a small percentage of the region’s installed base of traffic lights which represents a significant market opportunity for the Dialight Signals and Illumination business.

Offering up to ten years’ life expectancy, Dialight’s LED traffic signals deliver major savings for local authorities by reducing the need for expensive maintenance and avoiding the disruption to traffic that is inevitable with signal maintenance. Using less than 10 watts in comparison with the 50 watts used in signals by the average bulb, the LED units also significantly reduce power consumption and carbon emissions.

Dialight CEO, Roy Burton, comments: “I am delighted to announce yet another significant order for our central light source LED traffic signal products. This reinforces the clear message that our cutting edge LED technology is being accepted around the world for the immediate and long term value it can deliver.”

New 8W White LED Downlight with UL1598 and UL 844-Class I, Div 2 ratings

The RTO Series LED White Downlight is the newest member in Dialight’s state-of-the-art SafeSite® family of lighting products, utilizing high brightness LED technology to deliver savings in maintenance, energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

Farmingdale, NJ (December 7, 2009) - The new patent-pending SafeSite® RTO Series LED White Downlight from applied LED technology specialist, Dialight, is being introduced as a highly efficient alternative to incandescent jelly-jar fixtures commonly used in industrial and hazardous locations. The products are certified to meet UL1598 and UL 844 Class I Division 2 requirements.

With an ability to maintain 70% initial lumens over 60,000 hours of continuous operation, the LED Downlights offer significant savings to the user over incandescent lamps which only last up to 750 hours. This long lifespan greatly reduces employee/production down-time previously caused by frequent lamp replacements.

By consuming as little as 8 watts, a reduction in CO2 emissions and a saving of over 80% in energy is achieved with LEDs when compared to 100W incandescent lamp fixture installations. As the RTO Series is designed to deliver more light to where it matters most, overall application efficiency is improved, thanks to the unique downward orientation of the LEDs, which prevents light spill unlike the typical jelly-jars. A further benefit is that LEDs are environment friendly due to the absence of hazardous materials like mercury, unlike fluorescent and HID lamps.

Backed by over three decades of solid state lighting business experience and produced in ISO certified manufacturing facilities, the RTO series provides a system efficacy of over 75 lm/w making it a leader in its product category.

The RTO series comes with various mounting options to facilitate pendant, ceiling or wall mounting and is available now through Dialight’s worldwide network of distributors.
