Capital Vending developed an LED light strip with a connector that attaches to the existing harness. Although compatible with most machine manufacturers, a generic strip with a standard wall plug is available for miscellaneous venders or machines that do not have a lighting system. Product includes a static cling or weather-resistant decal to advertise electricity conservation. For more information, call 800-814-7756 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The SmartLight includes on/off capacity when used with InOne SmarTimer or InOne remote monitoring. For more information, visit www.inonetechnology.com or call 410-466-3800.
LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are the newest lighting technology to hit vending. More durable and without the mercury found in fluorescent bulbs, the real selling point to LEDs is their long life and improved merchandising capabilities. LEDs draw less power than fluorescents, savings the location money and offering a way for vending operators to be more “green” or environmentally friendly in their business. The LEDs also better highlight products in a vending machine. Many operators have found that the snacks and food appear to “pop” under these new retrofit lights.
The LEDs are designed to fit the fluorescent setting in the vending machine.
