Warranty Cost Savings of LED Signal Lights
News Release from:
08 September 2011
LED lamps have a significantly higher reliability than incandescent bulbs. The potential savings in warranty repair when using LEDs instead of incandescent bulbs is highly attractive for automotive signal lamps—especially center high mount stop lamps (CHMSLs) and rear combination lamps.
Seventeen popular 1998 U.S. models of cars and light trucks (listed in Appendix A) were used to establish a database for the number and types of incandescent bulbs used in signal lights. This database was used to evaluate the economic advantage of LEDs over the current lighting technology.
Life cost modeling was done for three year/36K mile and four year/50K mile warranty programs. Copies of this database are available from your local Avago Technologies field sales engineer.
