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

Congrats! 

Been working with Marko on this one Gary, so you know it kicks ass.  He's the engineer brain behind it.

This is so awesome and glad to see you're getting closer to getting this out.  So these look different than those sample we have, are they different?

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.

    • yes, you never know, they maybe interested.
    • Thanks for the info.    Buying up shops eh?  Maybe I'll ask them to buy me out.  After nearly 50 years in this crazy game I wouldn't mind retiring.   
    • I met them yesterday, seems like great guys, they have bought a few companies in NJ, and are looking to expand their network, they are growing,  their company very quickly and seems to be very organized and have a very modern work system.    their offices and shop are very clean, modern and organized, I think you could trust them. 
    • Does anyone know of someone who can hand letter on a brick wall in Phila?    The job was supposed to be lit channel letters, but they now wants to go old-school (very old school) on this location.  it's about 15' to the top of the lettering and a scissor lift can be provided.      Thanks folks!   Rocco
