Wide viewing angle added to Marl Indicator range

April 16, 2008
Date Announced: 16 Apr 2008 Ulverston, UK, 16 April 2008. Marl has extended its stylish new panel indicator range with new wide angle models, offering a 180 degree viewing angle top to bottom and left to right. Marl’s new panel indicator LEDs are not only up to 25% more energy efficient, but are also bi-polar, and can be driven from a wide voltage band.Marl’s new wide viewing angle LEDs will operate from 12-28V with minimal variation in brightness making them ideal for battery powered systems and other applications where input voltage is subject to wide variations. They are also insensitive to the polarity of the incoming power supply, and highly energy efficient, drawing just 8mA from a 12V supply. This is around 25% less than existing versions at the same brightness. They also benefit from new, modern styling.Both standard and wide-angle Marl panel indicator LEDs are available in 8.1mm and 12.7mm sizes in brass, anodised aluminium and stainless steel versions. Marl is offering a range of five colours: red, yellow, green, blue and cold white. Standard versions offer a 120 degree viewing angle, compared to 180 degree for the wide angle models. All are a plug-in replacement for existing Marl and other LED panel indicators.About MarlMarl has specialised in the design and manufacture of visible LED indication and illumination components and systems for over 35 years, to customers in the electronic, power generation, defence and telecommunications industries.
