GE Tetra PowerStrip, miniStrip and EdgeStrip LED box sign lighting
By Anthony Capkun
April 9, 2013 – GE says its new Tetra PowerStrip, miniStrip and EdgeStrip high output LED box sign lighting solutions are meeting today’s signage needs by delivering 25% to 105% of the brightness of standard Tetra product with virtually no maintenance for several years. The company says its patented OptiLens optical lens technology ensures light is used efficiently: each LED module is optimized to capture otherwise-wasted light and redirect it toward the illuminated surface of the sign. OptiLens also eliminates striping and shadows on the sign face that can occur with fluorescent tubes, adds GE. “GE’s new Tetra high output LED systems create a more economical sign by allowing sign makers to use less product than necessary for products that require more narrow stroke spacing to create desired illumination levels,” said Mark Shepard, global product manager for GE Lighting.
