Change Notification Summary

In an effort to improve our products, Advanced illumination (Ai) will be updating the internal drivers and white LEDs used in the BLXXYY, CBXXYY, FDXXYY, BL128, BL193, and BL245. This change will result in white lights seeing a brightness increase of roughly 70% while maintaining equal pricing for small configurations and reduced pricing for large configurations. Excluding the BL128, 24V configured units will experience a current draw shift from 20mA to 30mA per sq. inch for 470nm, 520nm and white units while controller configured units will see a current draw shift from 15mA to 18mA per sq. inch for the same color configurations. Color temperatures will remain unchanged.

The LED upgrade and internal driver update for white color configurations will take place September 15th. The internal driver updates will occur November 9th for 470nm and January 7th for 520nm.

Please contact your Ai Sales Representative if you have any questions.
