McCain Inc. Offers an Energy-Efficient LED Tube Light for Illuminated Street Name Signs

The Latest Alternative to Fluorescents

VISTA, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - McCain Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of intelligent transportation systems, traffic control equipment and parking guidance solutions, today announced the addition of the LED Tube Light to their product portfolio. The product allows users to replace fluorescent tubes in Illuminated Street Name Signs (ISNS) with energy-saving LEDs.

The LED Tube Light is a direct replacement for T12 6-and 8-foot fluorescent lights typically used in double-sided Illuminated Street Name Signs. The product is completely mercury-free and has an expected lifespan of more than 10 years, five times longer than standard fluorescents.

The LED Tube Light is compliant with future federal government energy-efficiency standards. In 2012, the federal government will require that the majority of light bulbs, including fluorescents, function at roughly 25 percent greater efficiency. The LED Tube Light produces more than a 40 percent energy savings over the T12 fluorescent light.

"Energy-efficient products are no longer discretionary, they're the standard," said Kleinjan Deetlefs, director of engineering at McCain Inc. "We're glad we are able to offer energy-conscious, environmentally friendly products that are compliant with federal standards."

LED Tube Lights are manufactured in 6-and 8-foot lengths and the tubes feature surface mount LEDs. LEDs are mounted on an aluminum heat sink contained within two plastic tubes joined and sealed at each end with a standard Fa8 single-pin contact. The LED Light Tubes are powered by a DC power supply that replaces the fluorescent ballast and is driven by the standard AC line voltages found in most fluorescent ISNSs.
