ROM brings LEDs to emergency vehicle compartment lighting

Oct. 6, 2005
Date Announced: 06 Oct 2005 ROM Corporation has introduced the LED Compartment Lighting System for emergency vehicle compartments. The LED System is available as a stand-alone light bar or can be integrated with the roll-up door track for new or retrofit applications.The benefits of LED technology are widely recognized among vehicle manufacturers across many industries. For the fire service in particular, LED systems:* Draw as much as 80% less amps than traditional systems, leaving more power for other critical needs at the scene.* Have lamps that last up to 100,000 hours, reducing maintenance costs with a system that may last the life of the emergency vehicle.* Are solid-state with no moving parts or delicate filaments to fail.* Withstand road vibration better than traditional systems."We pride ourselves as the single-source leader in emergency vehicle compartment access," says Steve Briggs, ROM vice president of sales and marketing. "The LED Compartment Lighting System is the perfect complement to our current systems: roll-up doors, wet-paint, door ajar and halogen-based compartment lighting. "Our LED system brightly illuminates compartments while offering a rugged lighting option that draws less power and can last the life of the vehicle. It's exactly the solution our customers have asked us to deliver."LEDs are available in 24-lamp, 12-inch sections that connect to one another serially. They operate in a voltage range of 9.3 VDC to 14 VDC with a current draw of 160 mA per section. The light bars are shipped with male and female pigtail harnesses for wiring from either end.
