CLEVELAND -- Vendors Exchange International Inc. has partnered with CLEANLIFE Energy in designing the Universal LED Light Kit for AP and National glassfront snack machines. The new CLEANLIFE EzConnect LED Universal Light Kit installs in minutes and replaces existing fluorescent lights with three LED light bars and a Meanwell power supply.
The kits are three times brighter than fluorescent bulbs. They're rated to have a usable life of 50,000 hours -- more than five years of continuous bright light -- compared with a fluorescent bulb's life expectancy of about 10 months.
What makes this new kit unique, according to Vendors Exchange, are several design enhancements over previous LED strip light kits. These improvements include:
» Adapter harnesses for true plug-and-play on virtually all machine models; no more splicing of wires.
» Shielded cabling that helps prevent accidentally pinched or broken wires.
» A light cover that helps protect the light strips from dust, overspray from cleaners and incidental service damage.
» A CLEANLIFE Mercury Free/Energy Saving window sticker in every kit to communicate sustainable practices to vending machine patrons.
Unlike traditional fluorescents, CLEANLIFE LED light bars are mercury-free and virtually unbreakable, eliminating concerns over contamination from broken bulbs. They are made of 100% recyclable materials, and cut energy use and costs by at least 50%.
The kits are available with 3M tape or magnetic backing. The light bars are backed by a five-year warranty and retail for $74.95. More information can be obtained by calling Vendors Exchange at (800) 321-2311 or by visiting the LED light section of the supplier's website.
