NEW USHIO LED Lamps on The Sign Syndciate


Recommended Posts

We're proud to announce that The Sign Syndicate is a Supplier for USHIO of America products. We will be stocking their LED Floodlights as well as S14 Deco Lamps. If you're not familiar with USHIO and you've been to the Las Vegas ISA Show and you've seen the Pyramid lighting for the Luxor, that's them, that's their baby, that's their xenon lamps that you can see from freak'in space! Ushio has been here since 1967, their the leading high end lighting manufacturer and they've been in business longer than their competitors warranties! They stand behind every lamp and every project.

I like high end products, always have and believe in using those in my sign or lighting applications because consumers and customers usually expect nothing less. USHIO is a high end lamp maker that comes from Japan, and besides lamps they make some amazing custom lighting. If you're even at the ISA shows, be sure to stop by and say "hi" their a great group to know and hang out with, ask me, I KNOW!

I'll be doing a quick demonstration and light measuring using the USHIO lamps with our Gooseneck and measure the light spread and what you can expect when using them in conjunction.

Their S14 Lamps are sweet, if you ever go out and look for alternatives to incandescents and you look at the LED version, these USHIO S14 lamps are real solid, they feel solid in your hand, their not light and flimsy like the ones you would find at Home Depot or at a local Bulb Supplier. These bulbs are used a lot at Vegas and used by a lot of National Sign Companies that build the big quality theme projects.

I hope to update this thread with some interior use as well as some exterior wet location use for an up coming project

Here are some quick specs.....

Well, we just bought the LED Utopia S14 bulbs for one of our customers - he has chasing lights on his sign and you know incandescent lights just don't last. These are great - everyone remarks how bright they are when they come on, it's a nice clean transition when they go off and on. I'll try to get a photo of the sign. The customer is VERY happy!

SPOILER ALERT!!!!

 

Just a sneak peak and it's going to take me some time to update all the info on here but here is a sneak peak on the new clear USHIO s14 LED Lamp.  It's now a Filament appearance. 

 

Most importantly MUCH cheaper than before  $5.50 each!!!!!

 

I never realized how hard it was to find these s14 lamps that rated by UL for Wet location, a lot claim to be "wet" but their not.  These are!

 

In Fact, ALL USHIO Lamps BR/R/PAR used for Gooseneck Lighting has been drastically reduced.  If you've never seen one of these lamps in real time...the high quality light output, High CRI (90+), you'd be amazed!

Tried to put this on the appropriate USHIO thread - but I found no button to add my comment, so I started a new topic.  Erik, feel free to move wherever.

I recently bought some more of more of my favorite USHIO bulbs, the BR40.  Put them in my kitchen and here:s a couple pics of one side of ceiling with the old BR bulbs, and the new USHIO BR 40 on the left side.  One pic is full bright, the other side is full dim.   Soooo much better!!  Cant wait for the NEW BR30 to come in for my living area!!

      NEW USHIO Filament s14 LED Lamp
       
       

       
      We're proud to announce USHIO's newest generation s14 LED Lamp for Accent Lighting, Marquees & Signs!!!
       
      Ushio America introduces the new U-LED™ Filament LED S14 lamps. Ushio brings modern technology to classic design with these LED S14 lament lamps. These lamps provide the timeless look of an incandescent lamp with the energy eciency of LED technology. U-LED lament LED lamps have no visible circuit boards or heat sinks, they are dimmable and provide an omni-directional light that replicates the appearance of incandescent lament lamps.
       
      Unlike traditional incandescent, the U-LED S14 lamps operate cool to the touch while saving up to 90% in energy costs. These LED lamps provide 150 lumens and consume only 1.5W of power. U-LED S14 lamps are rated for 25,000 hours and approved for wet location operation.  Ushio America is proud to stand behind these energy-saving lamps with a 3-year limited warranty. The U-LED S14 lamps are available in E26 medium base with soft white color temperature (2700K).

      What's awesome about these new lamps are obviously, at first glance is the filament appearance over the crystal LED...but their also a LOT brighter than the previous generation.
       
      One thing that needs to be emphasized is the fact that these are U.L. Approved to use in Wet Locations.  A lot of lamp manufacturers will claim this but they have no UL Paperwork to back that up and it gets a lot of Custom Sign Shops in deep Doo Doo with their UL inspector.

Utopia lamps do all of this while saving up to 80% in energy costs.

These dimmable LED lamps consume only 2 watts of power and are able to be cycled and flashed. Their life is rated for up to 50,000 hours, and they’re approved for wet location operation.

      I've gotten many questions over the last year or so and an email the other day that finally put me over and was the final straw for me.  "Do these lamps flash, animate, and dim??? 
       
      I've been meaning to make a video to answer all those question on the USHIO Utopia LED s14 2 watt bulbs that we stock and have sold a lot of, and well.....finally did it!
       

       
      It's a short quick 1 minute video video but I didn't want to bore anyone out of their mind, but I did have fun doing it, and it gave me a chance to work with controllers again, something I don't get a chance that often because my city doesn't allow for anything flashing or animating . 
       
      I may do a more in depth video later but i think this one does a pretty good job of it.  These LED lamps truly are nicely made and bright lil suckers.  Anyone who's bought from us can tell you, well...I've always been very impressed with USHIO of Japan products, they make high-end products and you always get what you pay for!

    • In case you’re living in the metro, gleaming lights shouldn’t be unfamiliar to you. These promoting methodologies will quite often be exceptionally normal as organizations attempt to grow their compass to a wide assortment of likely clients. In the midst of this large number of headways and arising patterns, a more up-to-date method for drawing in purchasers to actual stores exists. This can be accomplished by evolving the “brand” of your business, and custom neon signs are a decent method for the beginning. Neon signs have been supporting business setups to stand out for decades. There is not any doubt that they’re still as effective as ever. They provide a luminous, eye-catching addition to any business front that will make a big difference for your visibility. The custom neon signs for business usually bear the name or logo of the business, but it’s the way the sign is presented that makes the brand and your space really pop and stand out. It will instantly boost your impression, even on a crowded avenue filled with fierce competitors. The custom neon signs are particularly useful for small business owners trying to announce their arrival. We help you to channel the creativity in you, whether it’s having your own drawing custom-made into a neon sign or choosing from among the preset designs. Dive deeper into the world of neon signs with our vivid and vast collection of business signs. Text custom neon signs For Your Business Brand awareness is the initial step of the best customer experience. It’s the stage where people find your image and are keen on discovering more.

Custom neon signs can give you a powerful kickstart in the visual, emotional, and financial aspects of your store. Whether it’s the name of your brand, an open or a welcome sign, it can significantly help in boosting brand recognition and visibility. Create Neon A custom neon sign carries a purpose to communicate messages that can change human behavior. They can persuade, inform, guide, or warn a customer. A storefront sign does most of those things — it indicates that your shop is open, invites customers to enter, and guides them to the entrance. Furthermore, other store signs like item names open limitless buying opportunities. For instance, a client winds up purchasing something they didn’t realize they required from the beginning. Normally, these signs help lead customers to more items they may be interested in! Logo Neon Sign For Your Stores Brand identity is so exceptionally significant as it separates you from your competition. You must be imaginative, yet one of a kind.

Also, it instills a sense of familiarity in customers — a preface in the improvement of repeat customers.   Budweiser guitar neon sign Custom neon signs can do that work admirably. Suppose you’re selling beauty products, and you need to feature skincare things for sale. Neon signs can be words or images — you can get an image of a woman with a facial mask on or a sign that uses the words “skincare day!”. With its charming light colors and stylish design, you will clearly draw in more customers to your store. If your business space is amid direct competitors or more well-established brands, and you find it hard for your customers to remember your spot as a special one, as a go-to store for a particular product or service. Fortunately, an eye-catching tool such as neon signs can be super handy for this! You can definitely grab the attention of passersby and get them to try your products and services displayed through your custom neon sign with their illuminating aesthetic. Neon Sign as A Meaningful Imagery Neon signs are not generally just utilized by retail facades or coffee shops. They’re a stylish and fun method for drawing consideration and brightening up a plain dull wall. A neon sign doesn’t generally need to be something that shows your organization’s name or logo. Truth be told, it doesn’t need to be a text by any means. Perhaps you have a particular picture at the top of the priority list that addresses your business, like a mascot, an item, a product, or even a spot. You can make a unique LED neon sign for nearly anything you conjure up. Customize a neon sign of your food or beauty product for successful marketing. If your organization is a privately-run company, and you need to give recognition to that, you can add a neon country map as a stylistic theme to your wall to add an individual touch to your office interior décor. Conclusion Neon signs’ attractive highlights make them successful devices in promoting your business. Whether you have a new, limited, or best-selling product or service in-store, using custom neon signs to advise your customers about it, is multiple times more compelling than customary promoting. It gets consideration quicker and satisfies the eyes much better. Have these thoughts propelled you to make your own neon sign for your business? Fantastic!
