Sometimes this means replacing an exist- ing light source with LEDs, and since "fluorescent lamps come in a variety of fixed lengths," explains Bob Ponzini, channel development manager, digi- tal systems, North America at OSRAM, "some LED sign module manufacturers have introduced LED stick products in similar lengths designed to mimic and replace fluorescent. Other LED system options are available that are completely adaptable to any size sign and shape of a sign." Generally speaking, LEDs can give sign makers additional versatility over other options to position lighting com- ponents in desired locations. "With some LED module products," Ponzini continues, "one might be rel- egated to specific lengths of available product while other manufacturers have products that are flexible enough to be made and installed at any length in either a new sign or in a retrofit application." The fact that LEDs will work well in both retrofitted or new applications, is great benefit to sign makers. "The use of LEDs in sign illumination is virtually limitless," Uline says. "With the number of LED manufacturers and L E D modules on the market today, including border tubing, it is hard to find an application where LEDs couldn't be used." "OSRAM BoxLED Plus single-side and BoxLED Plus double-side sign modules offer excellent luminance uniformity," says Bob Ponzini, channel development manager, digital systems for North America at OSRAM.
