The LightSources group consists of the leading experts in the lighting industry, and LCD Lighting is no exception. LCD Lighting (LCDL) manufacturers a wide variety of miniature fluorescent lamps used in several applications by OEMs worldwide, with cutting edge technology for the most advanced lamps in the industry.
Hot-Cathode Fluorescent Lamps
LCDL manufactures hot cathode fluorescent lamps (HCFL) and cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for a wide variety of commercial and industrial processes. HCFL lamps contain a filament and can be found in lighting applications such as copy machines, scanners and vision systems. The HCFL product line offered by LCDL includes tubular lamp products with various diameters and lengths. The smallest size of these high performing HCFL lamps begin with T2, where T represents the shape of the lamp as tubular and the number 2 represents an eighth of an inch, therefore a T8 lamp is the same as 8/8 or exactly 1 inch in diameter. The largest size produced by LCDL is a T12 which equates to a 1 ½ “diameter. Our superior HCFL lamps are also used in graphic arts, signs and medical devices.
Cold-Cathode Fluorescent Lamps
LCDL’s miniature CCFL lamps are typically used in a variety of neon signs in bendable shapes, and use an electrode rather than a filament. Mini fluorescent lamps are often used as accent lighting or back lighting in avionic displays, military applications, computers, vehicles and the NASA space shuttle.
Both the HCFL and CCFL lamps use mercury vapor that enhances the phosphor coating promoting extraordinary lighting for a pleasing visible light. LightSources and LCDL have a wide selection of standard miniature lamps or we will customize a solution specific to our customer’s specifications.
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.
