TOKYO, Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- YRS Trade Co., Ltd. announced on September 9 that it will showcase a fluorescent-type LED lighting fixture that comes with a double-sided (360-degree) LED lamp at CEATEC Japan 2011.

Conventional fluorescent lamps and fittings used in existing billboards, including signs protruding from buildings, can be simply replaced with the LED lighting fixture, allowing lamp fittings to be used as they are in making the fluorescent-to-LED change.

Currently, the fluorescent-to-LED change requires either internal circuit boards or an entire billboard to be replaced with new ones. The only other way is to replace fluorescent lamps with fluorescent lamp-shaped LED fixtures. However, many of the currently marketed fluorescent-type LED lamps are only capable of one-sided (one directional) lighting because of heat radiation and other technical constraints.

YRS Trade has designed and developed a new LED lighting fixture that overcomes all these constraints, cutting down on power consumption by about 60%, taking advantage of LED's energy-saving and long-life characteristics, and also reducing the maintenance cost of replacing dead fluorescent lamps at high work places.

YRS Trade has also developed and employed an external power supply system with an AC-to-DC converter, improving maintainability and reducing total up-front investment at the time of introducing the system.
