So....we've had them and I haven't been pushing them out because I didn't think they were right yet. 

 

But now that time has come.

 

Been to a few shops of customers and when I saw what I saw, I had to push for it.  It's al because one of my customers recently obtained a new AdamsTech Bender.  So now he's producing Channel Letters, reverse Channel Letters that are so small and tight the worry is no longer being capable of producing such a letter the worry is now....how the hell to power it up PROPERLY.  It's hard to put existing modules in, competent LED modules I mean.

 

Well....In mid to late September we will have NC LED White Horse Mini's (Far right)

 

Their 160˙, same top tier Samsung used in our White Horse Product Line.  Their about 4 per foot and power consumption will be .48 per module.

 

If the Reckless 2, and White Horse 2 weren't already small enough as is, the White Horse Line will fit and integrate into all those hard to reach places and give you a bright light output

      Okay so....
       
      WOW! 
       
      I'm quite impressed.... 
       
      So I'd like to introduce our newest addition to our family.  The NC White Horse Mini!
       
      These lil suckers are BRIGHT as hell.  Their about .4 watts each, True White high quality tier/grade 6500K Samsung Diodes.
       
      Their approx 5 mini modules per foot, they come in 100 module strings and you get about 25' per string....and as you can see, 3 diodes per module, and just like it's bigger brother "The White Horse" their 160˙ wide angle modules.
       
      But, because their so small, these only come in constant voltage NOT constant current.  The upside is, these are lower wattage modules. 
       
      So many possibilities with these high quality modules that are small, yet pack a BIG punch of light...DAMN!
       
      The good news is, their only $89.99 per string of 25'......The bad news is, there was a miscommunication and they only sent us 20 bags, but more are on the way.
       
      P.S.- NOT made in CHINA!!!
       

       
      NC LED 's are generally pretty small anyway, especially the Reckless-2, but as a visual the White Horse Mini is significantly smaller!!!
       

       
      With Great Channel Letter Benders like the SDS/AdamsTech Machines out there creating some small 8" to 5" Letters, below are a few LED moduldes for visual layout purposes.  Tot he far Left we have our NC White Horse Mini, and NC Reckless-2 to the right of it.  The Reckless-2 can work as well but imagine if this letter just just a little bit smaller.  Visualize the other components needed for in conjunction with the poly-carbonate backs.  The tab support for the aluminum pan letters, the peg stand-offs and well as the secondary wiring hole. 
       
      Larger modules don't make sense for these small tight letters.  With the White Horse Mini's, having that extra room to move modules around makes more sense along with more even lighting than using long or larger modules.  With the White Horse Mini's you won't struggle with letter assembly.
       

       
      The Brightness?  
       
      Everything you would expect from our NC Reckless & White Horse LED Line

      Thought I'd post some pics of a project I recently put up for a group of owners I've been doing some signs for over 15 years, this is the latest project located here in San Diego in Pacific Beach California.
       
      This job was supposed to be up last December, but as you can imagine things don't happen over night like they should in for this project in California and a good reason why business's leave California for other fruitful states in our grand union.
       
      This project was no different and unlike other states.....here,anything built on the beach, you have to go through the California Coastal Commission.  This establishment won't be ready after much delay until almost a year later, and set to open this November possibly December.
       
      This project was originally composed of a third sign, a 18' tall projecting sign which got denied in the permitting process.  Can't get them all in California I guess you can say.
       
      So we're left to be happy with what THEY allow us to have.
       
      Anyhow, this project is two 4' x 20' Electric wall sign cabinets, 1/8" alum walls and 3" deep open face channel letters spaced 1.5" from the cabinet background.  18mm Tri-Phosphor Voltarc Accent 30 border, and Voltarc 15mm Rare Earth Phosphor Sparkling Blue Letter outline lighting.  The owners wanted a halo lighting similar to a previous job so we used Our NC LED's Constant Current Green LED Modules for low light subtle Rear Letter Halo Lighting.
       
      All Lighting Powered by Franceformer's for Neon, and our Union Elecom for the driving the NC Green Constant Current LED's
       
      A big thank you to Joe Walsh of Voltarc for helping us get what was needed for this job, the Neon is Brilliant and of course stands out over the beach night city scape.  This Beach won't be needing a light house for lost fisherman after all now thanks to Voltarc!
       
      There aren't very many Neon signs on this coast that I know of, in fact....I can't think of any so these signs are a real beacon.  They must be because the owners asked me if after installation and first lighting if I could hook up a dimmer......" a wut??!?!"

      Wall Pattern Day.  If you're going to do a sign project on a hot summer day you might as well be RIGHT on the beach.  All that project stress went away sitting on the scaffolding listening to the seagulls, the crashing of waves, and smell of sea spray.  I won't lie, I wanted to just bust out a hammock and go to sleep.
       
      Yes, I was working in Van's....I'm in SoCal, so that's all you need to know!

      An official product announcement.
       
      The Low Voltage LED Wall Wire Protectors are finally up in our online shopping cart. 
       

       
      I was going to wait until I upgraded the site, which will bring a nice new look and functionality to the site, but I've just been nose deep in work and will do so in a few days.
       
      Anyhow.....
       
      These are some picture of the LED Wire Pass Throughs.  Perfect for standard Channel Letters and especially Reverse Channel Letters
       

       

       

       
       
      I know and not all have issue's with either their U.L. Inspectors or Local Building Inspectors that require a pass through for standard LED channel letters and more so for reverse channel letters that need more of something that penetrates through the wall.  These are UL879 and in the UL SAM.
       
      And if nothing else, these make GREAT Fidget Spinners!  Spinning the plastic nut up and down the threads! 
       
      We'll stock these in 2", 4", 6", and for some who like them big there is even the 8" lengths
       
      Before bringing them in I had a friend use them for a job and it was all thumbs up, they liked them over the more costly Paige Wall Busters.
       
      These are sold in packages of 10
       
      Oh and these are produced and manufactured right here in the good 'ol USA!!

       
      You can purchase from our online Shopping Cart or Order by Phone / Email (858) 880-1400 -- orders@thesignsyndicate.com
       
      The Cart isn't always up to date on quantity & availability because of call-in orders, local sales, etc.  So if you're unsure just call or email
