Weather Resistant LED Panel Mount Assemblies From Bivar

IP Rating and Sunlight Visible LEDs Ideal for Extreme Weather Conditions

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2011) - Bivar, a leading specialty provider of LED indication products and solutions, today announced a family of Weather Resistant LED Panel Mount Assemblies, which extends Bivar's existing panel mount assembly product line, and features an IP rating and high intensity LED that is easily visible in bright sunlight.

Designed for use in harsh conditions such as extreme weather and moisture, the new family of products is ideally suited for applications that require outdoor LED indication -- including hazardous areas and high-vibration environments such as industrial automation systems, power supplies, instrumentation and control panels. Because the assemblies are extraordinarily bright, they are also well-suited for use in sunlit areas.

"In outdoor environments, indication products must be able to reliably function despite the elements," said Michael Finn, Bivar vice president of sales and marketing. "Bivar's new panel mount assemblies can operate in rain and other harsh conditions, and they are extremely bright and therefore clearly visible at all times. The design community has been asking for an LED indication solution with an IP rating, and we are pleased to offer such a product to meet their needs."

Defined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), an IP rating is used to specify the environmental protection of enclosures around electronic equipment. It classifies the degree of protection against the intrusion of solid objects, dust, accidental contact and water. An IP rating consists of two numbers: the first referring to protection against solid objects, the second against liquids. Bivar's Weather Resistant LED Panel Mount Assemblies feature a 67/68 IP rating, and are totally protected against dust and immersion up to 1m.

Additional features include:

  • Ruggedized housing material of steel, brass or anodized aluminum;
  • Range of voltage options;
  • True bipolar indicator for low voltage DC applications;
  • Wide viewing angle, multiple lens and mounting hole sizes;
  • Red, yellow, blue, green and white indication colors;
  • RoHS compliant.

The new Weather Resistant LED Panel Mount Assembly family is immediately available. For more information please visit For application assistance and samples, please contact Bivar Sales at
