Germany-based Majert has announced two important developments to its third-generation Chiplite X-Series. With the CL- XOL system, it is possible to include up to 100 individual modules soldered in a continuous chain without the need for additional power input. This “dramatically reduces” installation costs. The company has also added two new LED systems to the X-Series (CL-EL3 and CL-EL4). These have been designed specifically for edge-lighting larger light box installations and bring the number of different systems in the series to 10.
Majert says that using nine CL-XOH4 modules x square metre it is now possible to illuminate flexible-faced lightboxes up to a depth of 200mm.
Available as standard in white, warm white, red, green and yellow and with the option of special colours, the CL-XOL system is fitted with two 5050 SMD LEDs (including optic) and generates a luminous flux of 40 lumens. It has a compact size of 57 x 15.6mm and uses 0.48W of power, making it suitable for virtually any size of light box or sign lettering requirement to a depth of 50mm.
Measuring 100 x 26mm, CL-EL3 is fitted with three LED modules as well as a specially designed elliptical optic. It provides 240 lumens of luminous flux with a 2.8W power requirement and is wired to form a 20-unit chain.
CL-EL4 is suitable for light box installations up to a size of three metres square, due to the luminous flux of 400 lumens generated by 4.5W of power. The system measures 63 x 53mm and is wired to form a 15-unit chain. It has to be installed in groups of three modules. In common with all systems in the X-Series, CL-EL3 and CL-EL4 are backed with a five-year performance warranty.
The CL-X Series has been tested and approved for use in the most extreme temperature conditions (typically -40 up to +85 degrees C). The systems also carry the CE seal of approval, are RoHS-certified and incorporate an IP65-rated transparent housing for optimum safety and reliability.
