Double Sided Cabinet Light Spacing For LEDs


Erik Sine

Recommended Posts

Most Light Source Suppliers and Manufacturers won't show you examples let alone "numbers" of light readings on Sign Cabinet or Sign Projects from light source components they push like these I'm posting here, but....This is The Sign Syndicate!

 

"Seeing is believing" as they say.

 

So, one of the components I've been big on because of feedback and demand is a strong enough LED module that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, isn't proprietary where you need to buy their special clips, brackets, etc, and actually put out enough light without exaggerated "Usable Light" under too far spread spacing that's supposed to save you money that won't compete with other existing signs in the area of your project. 

 

Biggest complaint from sign shops about cabinet LEDs....."I don't want to use a whole bunch of power supplies!"

 

You want your clients sign to stand out, NOT be lost or drown out by other neighboring signs also competing for attention and visibility.

 

Most importantly, the BrightON Sunfire LED keeps it simple by allowing custom sign shops not having to pay enormous amounts of money.

 

I've discussed our upcoming new High-End Sign Syndicate BrightON Sunfire LED for Cabinets, Slim Cabinets, and Large Channel Letters before.  But I've never had an opportunity to back it up with facts by illustration until now.

 

Let's start with our long time industry standard light source components first. 

 

 

HO Fluorescent Lamps

That is good ol HO T12 Fluorescent Lamps. 

 

Unlike our industry suppliers and manufacturers I'm not going to bash the use of HO Lamps, they work good, and they do last a long time despite their marketing claims of failure just to sell another light source.  There are some very well High-End made HO Lamps for our industry.

 

Back to the project.

 

Here we have your typical 4' x 4' x 12" double sided cabinet that we would either see on a pole or mounted on the ground. 

 

3/16" 7328 Plexiglas MC acrylic face. 

 

Using industry standard spacing of lamps at 12" spacing.

HO Lamps 6" in from the sides and 12" from lamp to lamp powered by a energy efficient electronic ballast pulling about 126 Watts

With four HO 4' lamps with 12" spacing, using a Light Meter to measure the sign face surface light we have a Foot Candle average of 156.5 FC  (FC High 163, FC Low 150)

 

This is, and has been our industry average for sign surface lighting for DECADES.

Here is our High-End Sign Syndicate BrightON Sunfire  (pronounced just like the city)

 

IMG_2983.JPG

 

A 3 watt LED module with a 170˙ High Uniformity Optics with over 420 lm

 

Most importantly it's 24V system, and Constant Current.... NOT Constant Voltage. 

 

This system has reduced amperage, heat, and resistance running across it compared to a 12V and it has more voltage head room for long runs.  This calculates to longer life.  On a 24V system this means loading more modules on a 96W power supply than a limited 60w power supply of a 12V system.  Less moving parts on a project the better.

 

 

Below and as illustrated we spaced our modules the same as HO Fluorescent Lamps.  6" in, 12" from row to row and one Sunfire Module per foot, spaced 12" apart from one another

 

One thing I wanted on our Sunfire modules were longer wires between each module.  You have enough wire (15") to jump from row to row without having to splice...less labor involved and it gives you more room to do what other tasks you may need to do with longer wiring.

 

Using modules like our BrightON Sunfire makes your projects at so much of a lesser cost.  Instead of buying special proprietary clips, tracks and mounting brackets just purchase inexpensive alum 1/16" or 1/8" angles and channel for mounting.  These typically can be bought in 8', 16', and 24' lengths.

The results.....Same Light Meter, measuring the same surface area on the sign face we get a 196.5 Foot Candle average (FC High 205, FC Low 188)

 

That's a 26% brighter sign face!!!

What makes the BrightON Sunfire even better?

 

Adding a True Power France Lighting Solution 24V LED Power Supply.  True Power means having the ability to load 100% of a load on a power supply.  As you know most power supplies are asked to load to 80%-85%.  Not so with France, 100% if need be.

Most competing cabinet 12V/24V LED modules will run you anywhere from $7.00 to $15.00 per module. 

 

The BrightON Sunfire will only run you $3.75 per module, giving you NOT "Usable Light" but "Real Competitive Light" as illustrated here.....26% brighter, over above our industry standard lighting of T12 HO Fluorescent Lamps!!

    • yes, very weird, that she would decide to steal money, doesn't look like her. She still hasn't respond to any of our emails, phone calls, text messages, she still hiding.  (after we purchased 2 new trucks from her previously and was always very good with emails and calls.)   I had to Open a ticket with the Best Business Bureau BBB, and they reached out to her, and she finally responded and she sent them a highlighted contract we signed and she had a clause that if we canceled the purchasing of the truck we would forfeiture our deposit, but what sucks is that we canceled because Elliott couldn't deliver and was already more than 6 months behind schedule and still couldn't commit to a delivery, and instead they kept raising our price so cover material increases.    When Elliot came up with this, we  sent her an email and she agreed to canceling the contract and returning our deposit, we have an email where she promised to send the check back to us,  she was upset with Elliott and understood the situation, I had to fly someone to Elliott Warehouse and pick up the chassis, we had to drive 30 hours to drop off that chassis to ALTEC, and then flew the driver back to NJ, and all of that was at our expense, the truck with Altec Cost us $220,000.00 and we agreed to that because they promised to deliver when we needed, so we bite the bullet.    I don't understand why would she steal our deposit!! we had purchased trucks from her before, we always paid, we need more trucks in the future.  She didn't incur any expense, all she did, was to place an order from Elliott that never happened, and according to Elliott they didn't get any deposit payment, and they didn't bill her for anything, since they didn't get to do anything regarding this order.      signed CAD Signs contract highlighted.pdf Email.pdf
