The BrightON II LED Module

Recommended Posts

BrightON 2 Head 2.jpg

 

Introducing our new Sign Syndicate BrightON II LED module.  It's the newest all around LED Module for your Channel Letter, Sign Cabinet, and Linear Lighting needs. 

 

BrightON, pronounced like the city

 

Just like our BrightON Sunfire LED Module, the II is just as unique.

 

The BrightON II rids the need for shops having to stock a 2 and 3 Diode Module for different size lettering.  The BrightON II meets or exceeds the performance of most 3 Diode LED Modules on the market with our Maximum performance efficiency at 24V

 

The BrightON II LEDs are under driven for Improved Thermal Performance

 

Through all the various testing we have done here on the Sign Syndicate when it came to Neon or LED illuminated channel letter testing as well as feedback from customers who purchase our NC Reckless LED Line.  When it comes to illuminating signs, there is a divide between, Very Bright / Competitive Lighting / Usable Light.

 

Competitive Light begins around the 170+ Foot Candles on a sign face surface,  Brighter Light 190 FC+  and above. Anything under 150 Foot candles is just Usable, or Acceptable light. 

 

To date, our BrightON II is the most efficient LED module in it's class in light output per power given. 

 

Below are some our biggest competitors that we all see from cover to cover advertised in monthly paid brochure trade magazines.  For our own purposes we've limited it to two, because.....they have been the most marketed and we can't help but turn a corner in this industry and there they are, an ad to tell us how great they are.  Also listed, we have our NC Reckless LED Line.  

 

The test channel are 4" x 2'.  Same as our Great White Hope II Test.  4" tall because our industry standard has usually been, anything (stroke) beyond 4" will require another stroke of Neon, or LED Row.

 

The Hanley PE-4 is a 4 diode module with 3 mods, & the Hanley PE-2  is a 2 diode module with 4 mods in the channel

Principal Heavy Weight is 3 diodes per module, and 4 modules in the channel

NC Reckless-2 is a 2 diode module with 6 mods, and Reckless-3 is a 3 diode module with 4 mods in the channel

BrightON II is the same spacing and module count as the Hanley PE-2, or 2 diode mod, 4 mods in the channel

 

BrightON Compare 1200.jpg

 

From the sign surface light output measured in Foot Candles, combined with the Foot Candles per watt, the BrightON II has exceeded our competition with like modules in it's class.  Even some modules with higher output rating (1.32w, .92w) module and a higher mod count in the same measured channel. 

 

In other words with the BrighON II, you're getting more light with less modules, more light at a lower project cost, and more light at a lower cost of operation.

 

That's efficiency in a lot more ways than one!!!

 

 

A single bag of BrightON II LED modules is composed of 80 modules.  

 

Fully stretched Module to Module on a string gives you 7.625" on center, 5.5" of wire between module, that's 50.83 Linear feet of light, or 1.57 modules per foot.

 

Bright Kung Fu On copy.JPG

 

We purposely gave the BrightON II just like the SunFire an extra wire length.  The extra wire length was configured to give extra space for not only for changing your lighting needs, but also to save labor on single stroke LED layouts for going in and back out of letter layout for "Bars, Extensions, & Serifs" such as E's and F's among others without having to make a splice.  The extra wire length will also allow you enough wire to jump and make a 5" row to row.   One of the bigger feedback's we received was a lack of wire space.  With our High Efficiency diodes combined with 175˙ Optics, our modules don't need to be spaced so close together for light uniformity.

 

All of our orders will be sent with three convenient module spacers for laying out your modules faster rather than by naked eye, or tape measuring out if you need.  

 

 

SPACERS

BrightON Spacing.JPG

 

 

BrightON II Mod SPacing.jpg

 

The three spacers serve a purpose.  

 

The 175˙ Deg Optics gives you a unique ability to spread the High-End Super Efficient Light of the BrightON II LED Module.  Fully stretched you already have above competitive light as listed above in a 5" channel.

 

- Fully Stretched is 7.625" Module to Module OC, giving you slightly lower lighting levels than listed down below.  This is for your typical everyday channel letters you can economize and still have above competitive light. (50.83 Liner feet of light, $1.33 a foot)

 

- The first spacer is 5" long for a 7" Module to Module OC, giving you 192 FC on a 5" deep sign face surface, this is for your typical everyday channel letters.  (46.66 Linear feet of light, $1.45 a foot)

 

- The second spacer is 4" long for a 6" Module to Module OC, giving you 200 FC on a 5" deep sign face surface, this is for your competitive build channel letters that might require more light (Freeway Visible) and for Halo Lighting (40 Liner feet of light, $1.70 a foot)

 

- The third spacer is 3" long for a 5"Module to Module OC, giving you 235 FC on a 5" deep sign face surface, this is for your specialty channel letters that may have Day/Night faces that you want to look White White at Night, and NOT a murky dirty Gray, or again for Halo Lettering that need that PUNCH!  (33.33 Linear feet of light, $2.04 a foot)

 

 

 

CONSTANT CURRENT

Beside the important aspect that the BrightON II LEDs are 24 volt modules, most importantly they are Constant Current....NOT Constant Voltage.  What is that?

 

Constant Current Systems mean, every LED module is integrated with a Current Driver (Not just resistors) for protection keeping the current the same one each module from the first to the last module on a string.  What does this do? 

 

In short, Constant Voltage LED Systems have no regulation, only resistors for protection.  On a Constant Current System the brightness of the first LED on a long string is just as bright as the last LED on the same string, unlike CV where the first LED will be brighter than the last.  The first LED on a CV system is taking a bigger hit from the power supply than the last.

 

Protection from LED Power Supplies.  Each LED PS has a different DC Output, it can range from 12v to 12.25v.  Each additional traction of a volt can kill a CV LED system because it's NOT regulated and it's taking a bigger hit.  As mentioned on the Sign Syndicate before in the past, while installing a set of CV Permlight LEDs for our Neon & LED Bench Mark Test (The Great White Hope) where all strings were set on a dedicated PS, it wasn't noticed that a manually adjustable LED Power Supply was previously set for 12.20 volts not 12.0 volts from previous benchmark testing, and within 30 days the LED string had degraded 30%.  This is what a fraction of a volt can do to various LED product lines based on how they are developed

 

With CC LEDs, the output of the PS is regulated across the LED modules, more power won't hurt it.

 

When you hear such words affiliated to LED product lines such as "Eco, or value line" it means Constant Voltage

 

Constant Current LEDs have longer life spans because they are protected.  We've always been very big here on the Sign Syndicate about Constant Current systems

 

 

24 VOLT SYSTEM

 

The Complete BrightON Line is 24v, NOT 12v, there is a clear advantage for this.

 

First and most importantly, this 24v system operation halves the amperage running through the Wiring and Modules reducing the heat, resistance, & improving reliability   You'll also have more voltage headroom for longer runs.

 

With a 24v system you can load more on a power supply.  With a 12v system you are limited to a 60W power supply channel with U.L. regulations, with a 24v you are forded 96W.  That's a lot more modules per channel!  Less cost, less labor, less moving parts so to speak.

 

 

 

24 VOLT POWER SUPPLIES

France Lineup 2 copy.jpg

 

We recommend using our choice LED Power Supply for our system, and that is non other than France Lighting Solutions.

 

France isn't just some brand we so happen to stock.  We went out of our way and asked them (truth be told....I got on my hands and knees and begged) if we could compliment our High-End BrightON Line with their High-End LED Power Supplies.

 

Here is the reason why for my pride swallowing experience.

 

With your typical LED Power Supply (Insert name here), you'll be loading (depending on brand) it to 80%-85% of your full 96W channel, or 77 watts to 81 watts of LEDs, leaving room for voltage loss etc to keep from stressing your power supply.  With our Brighton II LEDs, that's 96 to 101 LED Modules.

 

We want to offer nothing but the best.

 

With France Lighting Solutions...and if you've been in this electric sign industry long enough to know when it comes to their Neon or LED Power Supplies, you're getting not only quality, but longevity, & dependability.

 

With the France Atlas & Eco Series that we stock to compliment our system, you are getting the only,  ONLY "True Power" LED Power Supply in the industry

 

True Power means that you have the ability to load their power supplies to Full Load.

 

YES...Full Load

 

That's the way they were engineered, that's the way they are made, and that is what you're getting alongside our LEDs to give you a complete High-End System for all your Sign & Lighting Projects

 

France Kung Fu.JPG

 

The Atlas series even has a LED indicator light to tell if you're loading too many LEDs on the power supply.

 

With a France "True Power" LED Power Supply you can load 120 BrightON II LED modules, that's almost a 24 module difference over using another brand LED power supply.  That 24 more additional modules can make the difference in NOT having to add another or multiple LED power supplies for a single sign or project.  You will be saving cost and labor from having to add another or multiple LED power supplies for a Sign or Cabinet.

 

We will be stocking 24V France 96W, 60W, and 30W LED Power Supplies  http://www.thesignsyndicate.com/forums/index.php?/store/category/22-led-power-supplies/

      So....
       
      I've discussed this, but haven't really illustrated or given a visual of the BrightON II LED Modules like I have with the BrightON SunFire Here
       
      I'm big on visuals, because talking about it is one thing, SEEING it is something else entirely.
       
      Well, what are we looking at below?
       
       
      CHANNEL COMPARISON
       
      It's our Highly Light Efficient .8w BrightON II LED Module (175 Deg) vs NC's .9w LED(140 Deg) HLC LED Module Series with Samsung chips.  You see these Module casings used by many GOQ, to just about any Korean or Chinese Based Module.
       
      There are a couple of factors that can make a LED module Light Efficient, optics and of course the chip.  Our BrightON series has both, bigger part rests on the chip.  I know this because early on development I tried to integrate the Samsung chip to our module casings, and well...with the amount of light we got from power driven....it got it's ass kicked by the one we chose.  You can't just throw in any or some decent chip in a cool looking module with cool optics and expect it to go perform well.....that's like throwing in a Yugo motor in a Ferrari body and having great expectations
       
      Here is a what's in a 4" x 2' Channel with standard 5" depth
       
      NC has 6 LED modules.  6 x .9w = 5.52 watts and achieving 203 Foot candles of light on a #7328 sign surface, and doing it at 35 Foot candles per watt
       
      Our High-End BrightON II has only 4 modules.  4 x .8w = 3.36 watts and achieving 214 Foot candles of light on a #7328 sign surface, and doing it at 63.09 Foot candles per watt.
       
      We always hear marketing words of "Energy Efficient".  What is Energy Efficient?  It's comparing two equal sources and when one is doing it for equal or greater with a lesser cost of operation...that is "efficient"
       
      We're comparing one compartment with six .9w modules against another with only 4 modules that are only .8w each.  You would think the bigger wattage LED should win right? 
       
      Well.......
       
       
       

       
       
       
       
      Don't get me wrong about NC.  In the LED Module world, NC LED Kicks the crap out of a lot LED Manufacturers, ALOT.  I've shown and illustrated that many times here on the Sign Syndicate.  But....Every Dog has his day...   Wait, let me walk some of this back.  Not all NC LED modules are the same as I've explained in the past, only our special configured Reckless was the one that really kicked ass.  
       
       
       
       
      LIGHT SPLASH RADIANCE
       
      Both Modules are 3" from the wall surface.
       
      Check out that angle and splash radiance of both.
       
      You can't even identify the horizontal measuring tape with the high powered NC LED Module, look at the small light output range radiating from the NC LED
       
       
       
      Now the BrightON II......
       
      That's SICK!!!
       
       

       
       
       
      Look at how much light is splashed on the surface each one of the modules is mounted to!
       
      In the end,....More light with lesser modules.
       
      Efficient Light, Efficient Cost, and it's doing it at a much lesser cost of operation.  It bares repeating again, a huge important aspect about the BrightON II...it's VERY under driven, it has half the amperage running across the modules and wiring than a 12V LED Module along with less resistance and heat of a 12V module.  That all adds up to longer life.
       
       
      I don't know what to say, we're quite proud of our BrightON LED Line, and it's only going to get better.

      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 is half the amperage and reduces the heat, resistance, that run across the wiring and modules compared to a 12V system, improving reliability of your LED Lighting System. 
       
      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 up to 32 Linear Feet for your Sign Cabinets

      France Lighting Solutions DRV24100A Dry, Damp & WET Location

       
       
      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!!!

      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 120 .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 halves the Amperage reducing the Heat, & Resistance running across your LED Modules over a 12V system which improves liability to your system
       
      Two HUGE pluses for your projects, High-End, High Efficiency Constant Current 24V BrightON LEDs powered by True Power France Lighting Solutions Engines.
