In an effort to increase availability of the latest LED technology available, Vendors Exchange International, Inc. has partnered with Cleanlife Energy in designing the new Universal LED Light Kit for AP and National glassfront snack machines.
The CLEANLIFE® EzConnect™ LED Universal Light Kit for vending machines installs in minutes and replaces existing fluorescent lights in vending machines with three LED light bars and a Meanwell power supply, according to the Vendors Exchange. These kits are three times brighter and rated to have a usable life of 50,000 hours or more than five years of continuous bright light, compared with a fluorescent bulb’s life expectancy of approximately ten months, the company continues.
Vendors Exchange indicated that the Universal Light Kit is truly unique due to several design enhancements over previous LED strip light kits, which include:
- Adapter harnesses make the kit truly plug and play for virtually all machine models. No more splicing of wires.
- Shielded cabling help prevent accidentally pinched or broken wires.
- A light cover helps protect the light strips from dust, overspray from cleaners and incidental service damage.
- A CLEANLIFE® “Mercury Free | Energy Saving” window sticker included in every kit to communicate sustainable practices to end customers.
Unlike traditional fluorescents, CLEANLIFE® LED light bars are mercury-free and virtually unbreakable, eliminating concerns over contamination from broken bulbs, according to the company. In addition, they are made of 100 percent recyclable materials and cut energy use and cost by at least 50 percent, making them an excellent alternative for those looking to conserve energy.
The kits are available with 3M tape or magnetic backing depending on operator preference. The light bars are also backed by an industry leading 5-year warranty and retail for $74.95.
