Date Announced: 05 Nov 2012 New range benefits from Marl manufacturing investmentUlverston, UK - Marl International has introduced a competitive new series of BA15d LED bulb replacements using half the power of the existing range and based on the latest surface mount LED technology. The new Marl 240 Series of LEDs is manufactured using the company’s new surface mount line in Ulverston, and is also designed to be more aesthetically pleasing. Marl 240 Series LED bulb replacements draw one-quarter of the power of a standard BA15d incandescent bulb for which it is a plug in replacement. With a rated life of 100,000 hours continuous illumination, they often outlast the control panel in which they are fitted and can thus be eliminated from the maintenance schedule. They can also operate utilising a much wider voltage range from 8-48Vac/DC or 48-130Vac/DC. Like the existing range, they are electrically bi-polar and are fully potted for increased reliability and ideal for high vibration applications. Colours offered are warm white, amber, white, red, green and blue. For a true filament lamp replacement, the warm white version can be used behind a coloured lens. Commenting on the launch, Marl Managing Director, Adrian Rawlinson, said, “Marl has been able to introduce this exceptionally competitive new range of LED bulb replacements following our recent £400,000 investment in improved product design and manufacturing facilities. Our key strength is the fact that design, prototyping, volume production and test takes place under one roof at Marl’s facility in Ulverston, Cumbria. With the launch of the 240 Series, we are offering Marl customers the best LED technology on the market designed and assembled at a top class UK manufacturing facility.”About Marl International:Marl International has specialised in the design and manufacture of visible LED indication and illumination components and systems for nearly 40 years.
