The new interior LED strip lights provide a cost effective and reliable alternative to traditional fluorescent interior lighting. Dialight says that its LED modules already hold 80% of the North American bus exterior light market.
Dialight’s new LED strip lights are set to be introduced, within a Hadley housing, into a 500-bus New Flyer fleet.
Fluorescent tubes pose an increasing number of environmental and health and safety problems in terms of potential fire hazards, rising costs of disposal and multiple failures. As an alternative, the Dialight LED strip is the ideal alternative as it offers seamless light output, longer life, reduced maintenance and does not require a ballast, therefore providing improved safety.
The LED version also has substantial benefits in terms of reduced power consumption -typically 30W instead of 40-56W- improved lighting reliability, lower disposal costs and enhanced safety through the absence of mercury.
Options for use of the LED strip light include general interior illumination, as well as underseat and compartment lighting applications.
