1 NATIONAL SALES MEETING Dallas, Texas September 10, 2007 PERMALITE™ LED&PERMALOGIC™
2 PERMALITE™ LED What is it? Why choose LED dome lights? Phillips WikipediaPERMALITE™ VariationsCompetitorsWhy is Voltage important?
3 Why choose LED over Fluorescent lighting? Fluorescent vs. LED LampsLEDs draw less AMPSTypically 1/2 of a fluorescent lampLEDs have a longer life-cycle10+ years vs. 1 year with fluorescent bulbLEDs perform better in extreme temperatures-50oF to +180oF vs. -20oF to +140oF for FluorescentLEDs do not use filaments or gasesthat break or burn outLEDs do not require recycling likefluorescents
4 Why choose LED over Fluorescent lighting? Fluorescent vs. LED LampsLEDs do not require bulb replacementsless cost in maintenance and downtimeLEDs can also withstand heavy vibrationUsing LEDs in your system requires less load on the batteryPulls half the amps of fluorescentAdds a longer life to the batteryOR, a trailer can utilize twice as manyLED dome lights
5 Phillips Wikipedia LED stands for Light Emitting Diode A diode is an electrical component that only allows current to flow one way when enough voltage is available. It is either on or off and cannot vary light output.A lumen is equal to the amount of light that falls on 1 sq. ft. area from a single candle, 1 foot away. The lumen is a measure of the perceived power of light.LUX is equal to one lumen per sq.meter (3 x 3 Lumens)
6 Phillips WikipediaVoltage: The difference of electrical potential between two points in an electrical circuit.Current: The flow of electricity through a conducting material.Resistance: decreases the amount of current being supplied to the electrical system.
7 Electrical Analogy 1An analogy to help understand these terms is a system of plumbing pipes. The voltage is equivalent to the water pressure, the current is equivalent to the flow rate, and the resistance is like the pipe size.
8 Electrical Analogy 2An analogy to a waterfall, the voltage would represent the height of the waterfall: the higher it is, the more potential energy the water has by virtue of its distance from the bottom of the falls, and the more energy it will possess as it hits the bottom.Current would represent how much water was going over the edge of the falls each second.Resistance would refer to any obstacles that slowed down the flow of water over the edge of the falls. Perhaps there are many rocks in the river before the edge, to slow the water down. Or maybe a dam is being used to hold back most of the water and let only a small amount of it through.
9 The competition PERMALITE™ LED High-Output Grote 10 TruckLite PERMALITE™ LED Low-Output Grote 18
11 PERMALITE™ LED HIGH OUTPUT vs. Grote 18 vs. TruckLite Comparison
12 Why Voltage is important? The average voltage at the trailer nosebox is 11.5V to 12.2VDome Light amp draw can vary greatly depending on the voltage supplied to each dome lightUse the “Amp Draw vs. Voltage” chart to determine how many amps each dome light is using inside the trailer.
14 Constant Current vs. Constant Voltage PERMALITE™ LEDs use Constant CurrentLight output is consistent across entire voltage range (9V – 30V)Lamps at back of trailer are just as bright as lamps in front of the trailerGROTE LED’s use Constant VoltageLight output varies depending on voltageLamps closer to the nosebox are brighter than lamps at rear of the trailer
15 PERMALITE™ LED High Output This product offers up to 480 lumens at a power draw of 0.93 amps at 12V.This product offers up to 640 lumens at a power draw of 1.15 amps at 12V.That is 25% brighter with an increase of 20% more Amp draw.More efficient light/amp draw ratioPERMALITE™ LED High Output
16 Why choose PERMALITE™ High Output Dome Light? In comparison to similar dome lights in its class, it offers the most light per amps.The power draw is significantly lower than the competitors, and it offers a brighter light.Less lamps per trailer means less chance for maintenance.
17 Why PERMALITE™ LED? Lower amp draw than other LED’s Constant light output across entire voltage rangeConsistent light from front to back of trailerThinnest of all lamps1” thickLess than ¾” thick recesses
18 PERMALOGIC™ What is it? Background Generations Application Models/VariationsCompetitors
19 PERMALOGICTM – What is it? Simply put, the Phillips PERMALOGIC™ Dome Lamp Controller manages power to the dome lamps inside of a trailerThe PERMALOGIC™ is the processor whichSenses low voltage on tractor batteriesTurns OFF the trailer dome lamps if the BRAKE pedal is appliedTurns OFF the trailer dome lamps after 60 minutes
20 Why PERMALOGIC™? Blue wire runs all trailer accessories ABS System Interior trailer lightingWeigh-in-motion systems (Air-Weigh)TMC recommends 12.5 V at 10 amp available for ABS under braking conditionsPERMALOGIC™ ensures that all connected accessories will turn off, ensuring power to the ABS system
21 PERMALOGICTM - Background Inspired by Ryder to solve a problemPotentially interfering with ABS on Blue WireTrailer dome lamps being left onFiled for patent in 2005Designed and manufactured 1st Generation PERMALOGIC™ from 08/05 to 03/07.2nd Generation PERMALOGIC™ redesigned and manufactured from 02/07 to current.
22 1st Generation vs. 2nd Generation Functionally the same2nd generation is easier to install an additional circuit2nd generation is easier to operate1st Generation2nd Generation
