Brighter and cheaper
A leading European supplier of technically advanced LED lighting solutions to the sign industry, German-based Majert has introduced two important new developments to its popular third-generation Chiplite X-Series.
With the CL- XOL system, it is now possible to include up to 100 individual modules soldered in a continuous chain without the need for additional power input, thereby dramatically reducing installation costs.
In a second and equally important development, the company has added two new LED systems to the X-Series (CL-EL3 and CL-EL4). These have been designed specifically for edge-lighting larger light box installations and bring the number of different systems in the series to 10.
Available as standard in white, warm white, red, green and yellow and with the option of special colours, the CL-XOL system is fitted with two 5050 SMD LEDs (including optic) and generates a luminous flux of 40 lumens. It has a compact size of 57 x 15.6mm and uses only 0.48W of power, thus making it suitable for virtually any size of light box or sign lettering requirement to a depth of 50mm.
Effectively illuminating the edges of both single- and double-sided light boxes, CL-EL3 and CL-EL4 have common as well as individual design characteristics. Measuring 100 x 26mm, CL-EL3 is fitted with three LED modules, as well as a specially designed elliptical optic. It provides 240 lumens of luminous flux with a 2.8W power requirement and is wired to form a 20-unit chain.
CL-EL4 is suitable for light box installations up to a size of three metres square, attributable to the generous luminous flux of 400 lumens generated by 4.5W of power. The system measures 63 x 53mm and is wired to form a 15-unit chain and has to be installed in groups of three modules. In common with all systems in the X-Series, CL-EL3 and CL-EL4 are backed with a five-year performance warranty.
The CL-X Series has been tested and approved for use in the most extreme temperature conditions (typically -40 up to +85 degrees C). The systems also carry the CE seal of approval, are RoHS-certified and incorporate an IP65-rated transparent housing for optimum safety and reliability.
The Chiplite X-Series is now widely specified by sign manufacturers throughout continental Europe and is backed by a large stockholding capability and 24-hour delivery.
