HCFL (T2-T12) & Subminiature (CCFL) Lamps

LCD Lighting produces both hot-cathode (HCFL) and cold cathode (CCFL) fluorescent lamps for many OEM’s worldwide.  Hot cathode lamps are found in many applications from home and retail to the the highly custom/ task oriented lamps for business and industrial applications.  Custom fluorescent lamps in business are found in OEM applications such as scanners, vision /inspection systems, graphic arts and medical devices and even the outdoor sign industry.  The HFCL style lamps can be made with internal reflectors or apertures for when more directional control is required.

CCFL style fluorescent lamps use an electrode (cylindrical metal shell) instead of a filament the hot cathode HCFL style uses. Cold cathode fluorescent lamps also include the family of neon lamps that are custom made by sign benders all over the world.   Like HCFL, CCFL’s use mercury vapor to excite the phosphor coating on the inside of the lamp to emit visable light.  Large diameter CCFL’s are most often used as architectural accents for interior alcove and general lighting applications.  Smaller diameter 15mm and under are found in neon signs, back lighting, graphic arts, scanners and other specialized applications.

Whether HCFL or CCFL the lamps – Tap our knowledge of lamps.

Industrial/Commercial HFCL

LCD Lighting manufactures a wide variety of standard and custom linear fluorescent lamp.  We manufacturer lamps used worldwide in the retail and industrial settings from the curing and graphic arts industry to supplying the needs of professionals in the aquarium and transportation market.  Need help customizing a standard lamp or designing  new lamp style- give us a call.  Our experience is deep from designing lamps for quality control visions systems to new style of medical lamps,  we work with designers to make it.   Give us a call.

Subminiature CCFL Lamp

Smaller miniature and subminiature cold cathode (CCFL) “straw” lamps and are the premier choice for backlighting, entertainment, and liquid crystal displays (LCDs) in numerous commercial, civil, military, and space avionics information systems. These lamps allow for new opportunities for low profile applications where straight or various bent  U, L, S, or rectangular fluorescent lamps are needed.

Subminiature CCFL

Phosphors Custom blended or standard Tri band phosphors, Full Spectrum or in any one of the multitude of phosphor colors available.
Shape Linear, U-shape,  Serpentine, L-shape, S-shape,  Rectangular
Electrical LCDL Engineering with work with OEMs for proper electrical lamp design with intended ballasts, inverters and duty cycles.
Bases Custom  bases, Leads/Connectors, Flying Leads,  lamp leads.
External Options heater wire

PL Compact lamps

Compact fluorescent lamps for specialty lamps provide high light output (lm/watt) without consuming high energy or producing excessive heat as compared to incandescent lamps of comparable light output- helps reduce maintenance costs.

We offer many standard and custom designs. With the flexibility of a dual /twin tube design – lamp designers have access to many custom configurations – Clients can choose wattage, shape, size, and standard or special arc lengths and the full range of specialty phosphors from UVA/ UVB and actinic phosphors to lamps OEM styles with two different phosphors (one in each tube)- It’s like having two bulbs in one!  Let us know what you want to design.

Sub-Mini Bent Lamps for Liquid Crystal Displays

Bent lamps with fewer lamp-ends improve the efficiency of liquid crystal displays. Because one of our U-lamps can replace two straight lamps, the ballast design and dimming circuitry can be simplified. This allows the display area to be made larger in comparison to the overall case size.
