LCD Lighting’s Robo-Bend manufacturing process technology allows serpentine hot- and cold-cathode lamps to be manufactured with automated bending processes. This technology reduces production time; our customers enjoy faster delivery and reduced inventories.
Lighting engineers can replace backlight technology and/or multiple lamp systems to save money. By reducing the number of cathodes in a backlight, the power loss (cathode fall) is greatly reduced. A typical 2:1 power saving is possible by reducing from six cold-cathodes to a single hot-cathode lamp.
Benefits of a single hot-cathode lamp versus 2, 4, 6, 8 or more lamps:
- reduces the complexity
- decreases assembly time, cost and risk elements of the electronics and wiring
- permits wider dimming ratios over cold cathode lamps
Our Robo-Bend 8mm and 9mm hot-cathode lamps are available in a full spectrum of tri-band phosphors and feature:
- long life
- high-lumen output
- excellent dimmability
- improved luminance uniformity
