2 Blocks South & 4 Blocks East MSi LED iPAR’s Lighting Up The Liberty Bell

The Liberty Bell, Symbol of America’s Freedom and Independence, Gleams Under the Glow of MSi’s Super Efficient LED’s.

The National Park Service has chosen the super efficient MSi iPAR 38 LED lights to illuminate the Liberty Bell in Downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 2003 the bell was moved into the new Liberty Bell Center, a glass and steel pavilion that allows it to be viewed by the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This new setting is perfectly suited for the kind of efficient, bright and long burning light provided by LEDs.

Cast with the lettering “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof,” this 2,000 lb. bell has stood as a symbol of American freedom for over 200 years. The National Park Service moved the Liberty Bell to its new home to allow easier viewing by the many visitors who come to see it each year.  A special feature of the Liberty Bell Center are glass walls providing viewing of the bell both day and night. This is the ideal setting for the MSi LED iPAR’s that are rated for 50,000 hours and can burn 24 hours a day and remain lit for years.

“First let me say how proud we are to be lighting the Liberty Bell,” said John Burke, MSi VP of Sales & Marketing. “It is a great honor, but it is also a perfect place to showcase the many bonuses offered by our LED lights. A special thanks to our distributor partner Maxwell Lighting & Energy who played a tremendous role in demonstrating the many benefits – and savings – to the National Parks Service. We could not have done this without them."

LEDs offer many advantages over the existing lamps traditionally found lighting important artifacts - chief among them are cost savings in energy and maintenance. LED lights consume far less energy and produce almost no heat, meaning reduced cost for both electricity and cooling. Exhibit spaces will also realize savings in the costs of lamp replacement and the manpower that requires. 

Another big advantage to using MSi LEDs to light important artifacts is its contribution to their preservation. Many materials can suffer damage and fading as a result of long term exposure to the ultraviolet and infrared light waves that are produced by tungsten halogen lighting. The light emitted by LED’s contains neither of these harmful wavelengths that can result in damage to priceless historic artifacts.

“The color rendering index of our newest LED’s now meet or exceed that of the traditional tungsten halogen lighting,” added Burke. “That means that museums and exhibit spaces like the Liberty Bell Center can now realize all the cost savings and preservation benefits of LED lighting and allow visitors to view objects and colors the way they were intended to be seen.”

About the company

MSi has been underground (literally) for over a decade designing, testing, patenting & perfecting the most innovative LED accent, spot and flood lights in the world. Considered the world leader in solid-state lighting technology for miner's cap-lights, MSi has provided hundreds of thousands of LED mine lighting products to the gold and platinum mines throughout the world. MSi created the solution for the thousands of miners who daily would find themselves 2 miles underground, in dark, harsh conditions with a heavy battery attached to a super hot halogen light inches from their heads… today, these miners sport a brighter, clearer, longer lasting LED cap light that gives off virtually no heat, and stays lit for an entire shift – and then some.

Leveraging their LED expertise, and in collaboration with the leading optic developers and LED manufacturers globally, MSi has proven this same LED technology with accent spot and flood lighting for retail, commercial, furniture, restaurants & museums.
