January 24, 2008... Making a good thing better, CAO Group has introduced a compact new High Flux Dynasty™ LED bulb, designed with a driver included in the base to provide constant current, transforming AC/DC low voltage to ~3.3 V. Available with both white and color LEDs, the new bulb is screw-mounted on a waterproof 1156 base. With these standard connection bases, it’s now possible to incorporate LED lighting in just about any low voltage (12 VDC) outdoor, portable, or task lighting application, including as a replacement in existing designs now utilizing conventional 1156 products.
Available in white, blue, cyan, green, yellow and red, these Dynasty light engines are water-resistant, RoHS compliant, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly. Because the LEDs are replaceable, it’s easy to change colors without needing a total new assembly. They share such ingenious Dynasty attributes as a continuous 360º horizontal viewing angle (275º vertical), unique butterfly beam, and a typical 70 lumens per watt, and with low heat output. Dynasty LEDs feature proprietary phosphors and smaller-than-usual LED chips, for cool-to-the-touch operation.
CAO Group’s fusion of ingenious mechanical engineering with sophisticated optoelectronics engineering enables bringing existing products up to state-of-the-art levels without having to change or redesign the base. The CAO Dynasty housings are of a nickel-plated brass alloy, and the bases are aluminum. The center pin contact at the LED base is gold-plated over nickel on a beryllium copper alloy. There are no glass or breakable parts.
