The Quebec firm is the 1st in North America to obtain this recognized certification for a power level comparable to that of high-intensity discharge lighting
MONTREAL, Jan. 5 /CNW Telbec/ - It was with tremendous pride that, this morning, the President of LEDEL International and the firm's Vice-President and General Manager, Normand Poliquin, announced that the Quebec firm had just received the authorization to use UL (Underwriters Laboratories) certification for its high-power LED bulb.
"This certification, which is recognized worldwide, demonstrates that our product is not only cutting-edge, but meets the highest standards in terms of effectiveness and safety.
Furthermore, given its many advantages, our product will allow organizations in the commercial, industrial and institutional sectors to enjoy significant savings on certain expenses related to the maintenance and operation of their equipment. This is hardly a negligible advantage at a time when companies are reviewing their budgets and cutting back on corporate expenses," noted Mr. Poliquin.

An investment of more than $800,000 opening the door to North American exports
It took the R&D team close to a year to complete modification work on the high-power LED bulb, in order to achieve a level of efficiency and safety unparalleled in the street-lighting (lamppost) industry.
LEDEL International's LED exceeds industry standards in the area of high power lighting by meeting the power requirements for the lighting of streets, parking lots, warehouses and industries.
The product's advantages are many:
- Saves 50% to 80% on energy costs
- Is 100% recyclable
- Reduces greenhouse gas emissions
- Meets standards pertaining to glare
- Optimizes visual acuity (lighting colour)
"UL certification will enable us to market our product throughout Canada as well as export it to the United States and North America as a whole, since we have obtained both the "c" accreditation for Canada and "us" accreditation for the United States within the organization's official logo," added Mr. Poliquin.
A few words on the LED
A light-emitting diode, more often referred to as "LED", is capable of emitting light when an electrical current runs through it. A diode only allows the electric current to flow through in one direction.
Part of the family of optoelectronic components, a light-emitting diode produces an incoherent monochromatic ray by converting energy.
