The Sign Syndicate's New BrightON LED

Recommended Posts

 

BrightON 2 INSTA.jpg

 

So, we finally did it.  It's been kicked around for months, prototypes, after prototypes and locked in on a configuration that we finally liked.

 

As most of you know the Sign Syndicate we've been testing majority of the main stream LED's since 2008 in a unbiased benchmark comparison, tests such as "The Great White Hope....Project Tighty Whitey...Red Light District...Border Security & Blue Light Special".  Over that time we've seen some characteristics that we liked, made sense, understood what will last and won't.  What it means to be a High-End LED product.

 

We have sold the NC LED's & Axioms for a few years now, as some of our favorites from the testing (Axioms no longer).  But it's been time to do our own, make it more custom and more perfect for the Sign Industry.  The Brighton line is made from those in the Sign Industry.....FOR the Sign Industry.

 

It's BrightON, pronounced just like the city. 

 

So what so unique about the Brighton?  For starters, we wanted it to be VERY efficient.  I don't know of another more bright and efficient LED module in it's class.  155 lum/W and 124lum with a 170˙ Batwing optic lens, most importantly when it comes the sign industry the important number is 63.09 Foot Candles on a sign face per Watt

 

The important aspects of long lasting LEDs is of course finding the "sweet spot", where it's driven just perfect for light and power.  The Brighton is VERY under driven, less power, MORE light!  These can be spaced out pretty far due to the optics lens, it's brighter in angles than it is straight on, or up.  Under driving  improves thermal performance, which extends life all while getting higher Lumens per watt.  The Brighton LED is a High-End, High Performance LED module for High-End applications.

 

For starters off the bat we will have a 2 Diode, (no need for a 3 Diode), 4 Diode, and our Sign Cabinet model 6 Diode (SunFire).  Shops won't need to stock multiple module types, the Brighton-2 is so versatile, you can use it for almost anything, just adjust the spacing.  It already comes with 7" inches of wire so jumping from one row to another is easy.  Space the center to center at 6" for good light, 5" center for Better Light, 4" for Best Light.  They're 1.7 mods/foot and work good for shallow 2" applications depending on face type to of course much deeper.

 

Since these are driven so low, they don't generate a whole lot of heat, BUT, our Brighton-6 (2.8w) is Heatsinked on all Aluminum PCB for longer life.

 

One of the biggest complaints we have received about LEDs when it comes to large projects like large letters or cabinets is......"We have to use so MANY Power Supplies!"

 

A nice aspect about the Brighton is, it's a whole 24v system!  Everything!

 

As sign companies we are redistricted by the Class II regulation of no larger than 5A per channel.  So 12v is restricted to 60watts, BUT....24v is restricted to 96watts.  24v will mean more modules per power supply.  You're now getting almost double the amount of modules for a project.

 

24V cuts that amperage that runs across the wiring and module in half!  It reduces the resistance, reduces the heat and most importantly IMPROVES reliability.

 

I think we can all agree that LESS is BETTER, less moving parts, the less you have to worry. 

 

This is the first part of our Brighton Line, we'll continue to improve it widening the line and of course always always staying far ahead of the curve

 

 

I'm including some rough test pics of our process and how they fair.  We should have these available in the first part of Fall.

 

And yes, we will still stock, and continue to sell NC LED Reckless LED

Thank you! 

 

Yes it is different, you have one of the earlier sample batches.  Our final version has a much higher luminous efficacy, and much nicer bin.  I'll drop a sample of these off to you soon

Well the specs look impressive! And I'm certain, you guys have done your homework (seems like you always do).

  Looking forward to trying them out on a project in the near future.

      We always strive on information here on The Sign Syndicate.  Everything from National Sign & Subcontractor Reviews on "payments & relationships" to "How To"...better ways to build sign systems and projects based on longevity & reliability .
       
      So, we're very, VERY excited (I want to say "Super Excited" but it's so over used) to announce our whole new upcoming Sign Syndicate 24V BrightON (Pronounced like the city) LED system just got even better.  Better because we will be complimenting our High Powered, High Efficient LED Module system with France Lighting Solutions 24V LED Drivers.
       
      I have talked about France products quite a bit here over the years, mainly when it comes to Neon.  The quality, that high bar of standards, most importantly....the "Reliability".
       
      From Neon to LED Power Supplies, expect nothing different, nothing less from France Lighting Solutions.  But, actually here is something different about their LED Drivers, something "Cool".
       
      The France LED Drivers are the ONLY drivers that are "True Power". 
       
      What is "True Power"? 
       
      In short......It means they are the ONLY LED driver in the electric sign industry that you can load to the MAX.  Not the typical load to 80% - 85% leaving room for voltage loss, wiring etc.  Load to MAX.....if you want.
       
      We are just a month away from releasing the Sign Industries most light/power efficient LED Module on the market that will definitely put it's mark on this industry.  You'll be able to get the most light for very little cost of operation.  Get more for less.....be on a 24V system which give sign shops the unique ability to load more modules on a single power supply.  A 24V system reduces the heat, resistance, and amperage compared to a 12V system, you'll have more voltage headroom for longer wiring lengths. 
       
      With a 24V system you're not restricted to 60 Watts per channel, BUT 96 Watts.....that's almost double! 
       
      Complimenting our new LED System with France's "True Power" LED Drivers and adding them to your electric sign projects you'll be able to load 120 .8w BrightON 2 LED modules.  That's 76.25 Linear feet of high powered LED modules for anything from everyday channel letters to cabinet & perimeter lighting.
       
      For our High Powered Sign Cabinet Lighting module, BrightON SunFire (3w), that France "True Power" LED Driver will give you 40 to 50 Linear Feet for your Sign Cabinets

      Those Sign Face Foot Candle numbers!!!  Look at the "Foot Candles Per Watt" (Higher is better)

       
      Our complete High Powered High Efficient BrightON LED System with France Lighting Solutions, that's DOUBLE reliability!!! 
       
      COMING SOON!!
      Now Available!!!

    • By Erik Sine
      Our 24V France "True Power" Lighting Solution products that will power our Sign Syndicate Brighton LEDs have finally arrived and are now listed up in our Online Shopping Cart.
       
      You'll be able to power up 118 .8watt BrightON II LED Modules on a single 96W France LED Power Supply for all your channel letter and sign cabinet  projects!!! 
       
      That means cost savings in using less LED Power Supplies in using a 24V system over a 12V system. 
       
      A 24V System also reduces the Amperage, Heat, & Resistance running across your LED Modules over a 12V system
       
      Two HUGE pluses for your projects, High-End, High Efficiency Constant Current 24V BrightON LEDs powered by True Power France Lighting Solutions Engines.

      NC LED Get's Better and Better $69.99!

       
       
       
      Introducing the NEW NC LED "White Horse" Wide Angle Constant Current Series.
       
      The White Horse CC series is a diffused lens LED module to better spread the light for shallow electric sign applications like 2" push thru architectural cabinets and channel letters available in 2, 3, and 4 chip diode configurations.
       
      The module is the same as the NC Reckless series discussed here
      http://www.thesignsyndicate.com/forums/index.php?/topic/7353-bright-long-lasting-channel-letters-and-what-it-takes/
       
      • IP68
      • 5 Year 50,000 Hour Warranty
      • 160˙ Wide Angle Diffused Lens
      • Constant Current, NOT Constant Voltage
      • High Brightness LED Module
      • Made in Korea NOT made in CHINA!!!
      • ONLY $69.99 per 100 WH2 Modules 42' Linear Feet
       
      NC LED DOWNLOADABLE SPEC SHEETS: NC-SS-0416-Brochure.pdf
       
      This White Horse series is a 160˙ degree light disbursement LED module and is the same chip for brightness as our Reckless series but because of the diffused lens the light is spread better for even lighting for shallow based sign faces for channel letters, dimensional letters or cabinets.
       
      As you know diffused wide angle modules won't be as effective for standard channel letter illumination as the Reckless series but great for shallow depth channel letters BUT, with the sick brightness of the NC Reckless LED series you can probably use this for both applications.
       
      Two great modules with the same makeup mixed with high Korean standards, with these standards think high, over engineered Japanese standards.... lastly..........say it with me.......NOT made in CHINA!!!
