If the need to include a new power supply is part of the proj- ect, then "The most important thing is that the power supply is installed in accordance with UL 48 and 879 standards, and the installation instructions for that power supply," states Uline. "The location of the power supply will depend on whether it should be dry, damp or wet rated power supply." Moving Forward Well learned in color additions and other minor enhance- ments, there isn't a whole lot that sign makers don't know about LED advancements. However, it's how they implement these products that can change the way a cabinet sign performs. Farmer references US LED's CP360 cabinet module that can be used in double-faced or single-faced signs. "It's installed along the return of the sign and projects the light toward the middle and evenly lights up to an eight-foot sign by having one row of CP360 at the top and one at the bottom," he explains. Ponzini too notes that both single- and double-sided options can make very noticeable impacts. "OSRAM BoxLED Plus single side and BoxLED Plus double side sign modules offer excellent luminance uniformity at typi- cal cabinet sign depths due to their wide batwing photometric distribution and adjustable module spacing," he says. "Available with click-and-play near tool-less mounting hardware, OSRAM BoxLED products are very easy to install, saving on labor and they are very flexible and adaptable for nearly any size sign in both new and retrofit applications." Smarter Cabinet Signs Today, with all the advanced technology available, cabinet signs are even becoming smarter with palm-of-your-hand style control capabilities. Says Uline, "Some of the newer cabinet LED systems that are coming out on the market can retro fit into an existing T12 lamp socket to remote controlled RGB systems. They have an unlimited amount of colors, and you can arrange the change of the colors all from your smart phone." Cabinet signs are making strides to constantly improve upon a customer's current solution. Whether it is updating a current sign with a retrofit or offering a completely new build, sign mak- ers have the freedom to think outside of the box —even when they are basically offering, well, a sign in a box.
