TerraLUX issued two key patents for LED lighting
Boulder, CO, December 11, 2007 – TerraLUX® has been awarded
two patents by the US Patent and Trademark Office concerning core
technology enabling the commercialization of LED replacements for
incandescent bulbs in everything from flashlights to medical and
TerraLUX designs and manufactures LED lighting products that
replace incandescent lighting in applications ranging from surgical
instruments like laryngoscopes and dental headlamps to conventional
flashlights. TerraLUX LED Light Engines® replace existing incandescent
light bulbs with products that are brighter, last nearly forever, have a vastly higher energy efficiency and eliminate replacement maintenance costs. Markets currently serviced by TerraLUX LED Light Engines® include industrial, medical, dental, automotive and hardware.
According to Dr. Anthony Catalano, CEO and founder of TerraLUX,
“TerraLUX LED lighting technology now makes it the first choice for all high performance portable DC applications. In 2008 TerraLUX will
enter the AC lighting marketplace with leading edge products the
market has been waiting for based on our patented technology. We
expect to partner with several national lighting companies who will sell Terralux products. TerraLUX also expects its products to enter
distribution through major US retail channels in 2008.”
TerraLUX patented technology covers existing LED upgrades for
incandescent bulbs plus many future uses of LEDs that are still in
development from self-regulating incandescent replacements to
remote control of LED arrays with unique optics, color control and
other decorative features.
The two patents, both issued at the end of November, are 7,296,913
