Oxley has introduced a series of bipolar LEDs to its range of LED incandescent bulb replacements.

Designed to replace standard BA9 and E10 incandescent bulbs in push-button switches and panel instrumentation, the ELEDs are suitable for use in rail, power and oil and gas applications.

These ELEDS have a multi-voltage operating range from 12V DC/V AC to 60V DC/V AC, ensuring bipolarity, thermal management and increased mean time between failure of 100,000 hours.

They utilise the latest LED technology to achieve the required levels of illumination.

The LED is machined to create a flat top that ensures ‘true and even’ behind bezel illumination and eliminates the hot spot often associated with earlier, more directional LEDs.

‘The benefit of using an Oxley warm-white ELED is that the colour mimics that of an incandescent bulb and filters through all colours of push-button switches including the more problematic yellows and reds,’ said David Howell, Oxley LED business manager.

Fully tested and qualified, the ELEDs are available now in white and warm white with green, blue, yellow and AlGaAs red variants to follow shortly.

Our main business is in night-vision lighting systems, LED solutions, EMI filters and interconnect components. Robust, reliable and high in quality, we design our products with performance, specification and longevity in mind.

We are renowned for our innovative work in lighting and developed one of the earliest night-vision lighting systems when night-vision goggles (NVGs) were first adopted for use by the UK Ministry of Defence. The company has since become a world leader in the supply of night-vision lighting for military aircraft, vehicles, shelters and naval platforms.

With more than four decades' experience, Oxley is highly regarded in the development of LED solutions to replace traditional incandescent and fluorescent lighting. From miniature LED components to integrated lighting systems, Oxley is the supplier of choice for both off-the-shelf and customised solutions.

Oxley is equally renowned for its electronic components business. Specialist products such as EMI filters and interconnection are all produced at our unique, high-tech facilities to bespoke and off-the-shelf requirements.

Established since 1942, the company has facilities in the UK and US, which include optical coating, machining, plating, manufacture and test facilities.
