SIL 2008: ROAL launches new MultiLINQ DC Power Splitter

Feb. 11, 2008
Date Announced: 11 Feb 2008 Stroudsburg, PA – Feb. 11, 2008 - ROAL Electronics launched the first in a series of revolutionary new products for the LED signage industry at the Strategies in Light conference in Santa Clara, California. MultiLINQ was designed to address several long standing industry concerns, the most important of which is the service life of the LED lighting system. MultiLINQ eliminates the need for multiple Class 2 power supplies within the sign, and relocates the power to an easily accessible location. The MultiLINQ is a non-dissipative device with no wear-out mechanism that can be mounted in or near the sign and splits the main power source into four (4) intrinsically safe class 2 power outputs capable of powering up to 400 watts of LED lights. It is encased in a NEMA 6/ IP67 weather-tight package suitable for wet locations. Sign companies will enjoy reduced total cost of ownership with fewer power supplies and no maintenance at the sign. MultiLINQ works with a remote supply that can be located in an easily accessible place. Current power supplies must be located in or very near to the sign, difficult to maintain and service. Other uses include Architectural, Façade and Commercial lighting applications. MultiLINQ technology is patent pending, and will be available in production quantities starting in April 2008. Volume pricing is expected to be around $60 per module. MultiLINQ will carry UL approval and it will be listed in UL’s Sign Components Manual (SAM).
