LCDL’s Hot-Cathode Fluorescent Lamps
LCDL produces cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) and hot cathode fluorescent lamps (HCFL) to a multitude of companies and OEMs around the globe. LCDL offers a product line of HCFL lamps which include tubular lamps available in a wide range of lengths and diameters.
The smallest size of HCFL lamps start at T2 which means that T stands for the shape of the lamp meaning tubular, and the number 2 stands for an eighth of an inch. A size T8 lamp would equal a tubular lamp at exactly 1 inch in diameter. As LCDL specializes in miniature lighting, the largest size available is the T12 which would be a diameter of 1 ½”.
HCFL lamps by LCD Lighting are used in signs, medical devices, graphic arts, and backlighting displays in various applications.
LCDL’s Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps
Miniature CCFL lamps by LCD Lighting are commonly used in various neon signs and bendable shapes. CCFL lamps contain an electrode, rather than the filament in the HCFL lamps. Mini fluorescent lamps are used as backlighting in avionic displays, computers, vehicles, military applications and even the NASA space shuttle.
Both CCFL and HCFL lamps contain mercury vapor to enhance the phosphor coating which creates a very pleasing light. LightSources and LCD Lighting offer a wide selection of standard mini-lamps and provide custom services to create the lighting solutions unique to your application.
LightSources and its affiliated companies – LCD Lighting, Voltarc, LightTech, and Cerlux represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today. Our products are used world-wide in a multitude of applications and industries such as our avionic display backlighting that is part of the National Defense and US Space Program.
