UltraLED Announces Halogen to LED Warning Light Upgrade

WILLIS, Texas – UltraLED, Inc . recently announced the release of the H3X LED upgrade. The Halogen to LED Warning Light Upgrade uses the same concept as their Stop Arm LED Upgrade bulb, using the existing fixture for a direct interchange, making a quick and easy upgrade to LED technology.

The H3X takes the place of an H3 halogen bulb, common to 8-way warning lights, and employs the inner reflector as a built in component for heat dissipation with a circuit board/ driver potted into the rear of the unit to further simplify installation. The H3X fixture contains 9 Surface Mount Display (SMD) LEDs on a single circuit, to also address out of service criteria and provides an efficient LED warning light with a service life of up to 50,000 hours of product life compared to only 300 hours of the halogen counterpart.

“The H3X has been in development for the past couple years as we worked with advancing LED technology to ensure the product exceeds FMVSS 108 requirements defined in SAE J887” commented Brandon Billingsley, President of UltraLED. Billingsley added that “[we] are utilizing SMD technology in version one of this product and are pleased that the product dramatically surpasses the federal specifications for both amber and red warning lights”.

When speaking with General Manager, Branden Smeltzer, he commented that “UltraLED understands the needs of large and small school bus fleets, many with a shrinking transportation budget. Our complete sonic-sealed LED lighting line, while mature continues to expand in response to R&D efforts. The addition of the H3X completes our serviceable product line (direct interchange to LED) providing an upgrade from any of the older incandescent or halogen bulbs to LED technology, increasing safety and efficiency while reducing operating cost.”

UltraLED anticipates that this product will be available for sale the first week of September through its nationwide dealer network.
