Ulverston, UK, 3 June 2008. Marl Optosource has announced a new range of LEDs, using the latest manufacturing and semiconductor technology to achieve the best ever lumens light output per penny cost of the LED.

According to Clare Millard, Marl Optosource, the new LEDs offer between 25% and 50% more light output than comparable LEDs of the same cost. Marl has introduced an extensive range of the 3mm and 5mm LEDs, with a range of viewing angles. The LEDs feature clear lenses and are available in a wide range of colours including red, yellow, green, blue and white.

The LEDs are offered by Optosource as discrete components, or can be assembled into complete LED panel lamp solutions at Marl’s Ulverston manufacturing site. Using its extensive design and manufacturing capabilities, Marl is able to develop a solution specific to customer’s mechanical, electrical, environmental or optical requirements. This includes protecting the LED assembly against shock and vibration, providing a polarity-insensitive solution that can even operate in an AC environment, protecting the LED against moisture, dust and heat, and matching the colour of an existing incandescent panel lamp.

The new LEDs are manufactured for Marl Optosource by a high quality ISO9001:2000 state of the art manufacturing site in China. The site also boasts an environment guarantee system certificate ISO14001:2004.
