YARDLEY, PA (March 5, 2010) -- NxGen Technologies has developed an LED elevator lamp, the LED 1383, that casts a warm, white light and is designed to last 50,000 hours instead of the normal 300 hour lifespan of traditional 1383 incandescent bulbs. The LED 1383 is commonly used to light elevator cabs, lighting displays, reading spotlights in RVís and industrial equipment driven by 12-volt AC or DC power. Using a high brightness LED emitter, the power consumption is dramatically reduced compared to the lampís incandescent counterparts that consume 20 watts of power. Because the lamps use LED technology instead of traditional incandescent filaments, they provide more than 85 percent energy savings over incandescent bulbs and generate lower operating temperatures. Furthermore, the lamps contain no glass and are shock and vibration proof. This eliminates the need for Safety Coating the standard 1383 Lamps.

"The LED 1383 lamps were designed to be problem solvers," says David Allen, president of NxGen Technologies. "No longer will users have to constantly change bulbs or decrease voltage in an attempt to get them to last longer. Maintenance savings alone make this LED 1383 an economic alternative. Since most elevator cab lighting is on 24 hours a day; the energy savings is very significant over a short period of time. Pay back can be as short as 6-8 months depending upon electric utility rates.

The 12-volt AC/DC bulbs come with single contact bayonet bases and are 2.62 inches long and 1.50 inches in diameter. Double contact bayonet bases with the same overall dimensions are also available in the LED-GBF model, also for 12-volt AC/DC applications. Both styles come in either warm white or daylight white colors.

"The lamps are designed to pay for themselves by energy savings alone in a few months," concludes Mr. Allen. "However, they pay for themselves much more quickly when you add in replacement cost and the cost of labor saved by not having to change bulbs."
