5. Energy saving dimming capability is incorporated into the CCF Lights.
Dimming is rare if not impossible with typical hot-cathode fluorescent lights, as
this substantially erodes the thin wire filament and degrades the tube even further (which is already significantly reduced under conditions of shock and vibration). Not only is this possible with CCF s, you actually reduce power cvonsumption
and thus draw on the batteries as you dim the lights. Using our proprietary pulse
group modulation, you can control light output and reduce current draw proportionately, thus dim efficiently. This benefit is expecially useful at night, when you
may desire a low light level without drawing down you battery capacity. Our
double linear is available in red or red/white combinations; convenient and effective for not disrupting vision while navigating at night. A single Taylorbrite dimmer can control as many CCF s as required.

4. CCFs have unmatched durability. The CCFs are very durable due to their
tube and ballast construction, and hold up under shock and vibration typically
experienced in the commercial and recreational marine, RV, and truck markets.
These components are also built to operate under varying degrees of electrical
power, and endure voltage spikes and drops without any damage. Furthermore,
the bezels are stainless steel-based, and clear coated (brass and gold versions) to
ensure that all finishes stand up to corrosive elements.
Brand C Halogen 105cm diameter 10Watt Halogen
3. CCF lights provide up to 25,000 hours of service life and unlimited
starts. The CCFs are similar in construction to neon lights, and because of this
you receive the long-life you would expect with this light source. The CCFs are
rated at 25,000 hours of life, which exceeds the operating lifetime of most boats
and RVs. This translates into less time, expense, and hassle associated with
changing bulbs.

2. CCF lights operate at a much lower fixture temperature. Increased effi- Lux per watt - popular light models
ciency means you are generating more light for the power you consume; this is
essential when considering you have limited power capabilities on a boat, RV, or
truck. Because more power is converted into light and not dissipated as heat, 25
CCF lights operate at a much lower fixture temperature (50°C versus 160°C for
halogens), making them safer to install in all areas, drastically reducing ambient
heat, demands on cooling systems, nor do they create fire hazards, or cause harm 20
from accidental contact.

The TIR lens enhances CCF efficiency. With the TIR lens, the CCF s provide peak
illumination 4 to 8 times that of halogen and incandescent sources (of equivalent
power draw). Furthermore, the Surface Mount CCFs have an equivalent peak
illumination of typical hot-cathode fluorescent lights that consume 50-75% more
power.

CCF Surface Mount Lights
Surface Mount CCFs- Specific Applications
Marine Market
Commercial Marine: The durability of the CCFs make this market a natural for the Surface Mount CCFs. Our lights can
withstand the constant vibration and significant shocks experienced with this craft on the open water. Because of the low
power draw, the CCFs make for great emergency lights. The low heat and low profile make them perfect in work areas where
space is limited and cramped. The lack of heat is especially important when there is a risk of contact when performing tasks.
In addition, the low power requirement of the Surface Mount CCFs can reduce the weight of a boat by downsizing electrical
components such as generators, and charger/converters, in addition to eliminating headliner space needed to recess a typical
light.
Recreational Marine (Power): The Surface Mount CCFs are perfect in work areas that require significant light such as galleys
and engine rooms. The surface mount features and sealed electronics are conducive for areas in which there is no headliner
(under cabinets, and hardtops) and wet location areas such as in heads. Furthermore, the lack of heat make them essential
for closets and lazarets, where lamps frequently come in contact with clothing or boxes. Navigation stations and helms would
greatly benefit from the dual red/white combination CCF where you can easily switch from white light (normal ambient
lighting) to red light (required for preservation of night vision ) for operating at night.
Sailboats: Sailboats have limited power capabilities. Because of the desire to sail efficiently, weight is minimized on these
boats. This typically means that there are little or no headliner areas, and a general downsizing of electrical components (as
compared with power boats) such as smaller generators, converter/chargers, battery banks, etc. The Surface Mount CCFs
address all these concerns, and are a perfect solution to problems in this market. Sailors across the globe know about out
CCFs, and how they truly enhance performance.
Aftermarket/Refit: The Surface Mount CCFs are very conducive for this market segment, by virtue of the surface mount
feature. This enables easy replacement of fixtures since you can simply cover the hole wher e the previous light was. In turn
you are getting a more efficient and durable light that will most likely last the life of the boat. You may never have to replace
your interior lights again!
Recreational Vehicle
New Construction: When designing a new RV, the Surface Mount CCFs solve many of the problems manufacturers (particularly designers and engineers) struggle with. Because RVs are frequently self-sustaining, with no access to shore power, hot
cathode fluorescent lights have evolved into the staple in coaches because of their low power draw. The Surface Mount CCFs
offer superior features and benefits, while providing more efficient operation. These include: the ability to dim (and save
battery capacity concurrently) and to set the mood in ar eas such as dining areas or staterooms; a pleasingly-warm color
temperature (3,000°K similar to incandescent and halogens, therefore there is no competing color temperatur es with the
halogen lights typically used underneath cabinets and valences); longer life (25,000 hours of operation versus 5,000 hours
with hot cathode fluorescent lights); superior ability to endure shock and vibration; and more attractive packaging. Finally,
the surface mount feature can reduce relief spaces or headliners, thereby removing weight and increasing vehicle efficiency.

Truck/Sleeper Cab Market
New Construction: When designing a new truck or sleeper cab, the Surface Mount CCFs solve many of the problems manufacturers struggle with. Because Trucks are frequently self-sustaining, with no access to shore power, fluorescent lights have
evolved into the staple in trucks and sleeper cabs because of their low power draw. The Surface Mount CCFs offer superior
features and benefits, while providing more efficiency. These include the ability to dim (and save battery capacity concurrently), a pleasingly warm color temperature (3,000°K similar to incandescent and halogens), longer life (25,000 hours versus

CCF Surface Mount Lights
NEW GENERATION HIGH-OUTPUT CCF LIGHTS
Surface Mount CCFs
The Single and Double Linear Surface Mount CCFs are
terrific lights that not only look good, they have a wide
variety of features and benefits conducive for users in
the marine, RV, and truck markets. Furthermore, they
are durable enough to hold up under shock and vibration, as well as other environmental elements causing
corrosion.
Low profile/surface mounting: The ultra thin CCF tube
(6mm) and TIR lens combine to form an ultra thin light
(.9 in height) with no recessed parts. This enables
these lights to be mounted in constrained spaces (for
example: under cabinets, etc.). Surface mounting is
particularly conducive to refit/replacement situations,
and applications where no headliner is installed on the
boat, resulting in greater headroom for occupants.
Attractive Packaging: The CCFs have attractive bezels
that feature white powder coating, gold, chrome, and
brass plating over a stainless steel base surface. These
fixtures, combined with a warm color temperature
(3,000°K similar to halogen and incandescent), not only
look good, but they make you and your interiors look
good also.

Dimming System
CCF DIMMING SYSTEM
Background
Some light sources are easy to dim. Incandescent lamps are dimmed by simply reducing the voltage applied, either directly or by various electrical wave-shaping techniques.
However, hot filament based discharge lamps, like fluorescents or halogens, require a
certain constant power level to keep the filament(s) hot. Certain pulse shaping techniques can be used to provide at least partial dimming for these kinds of lamps, but
there is a price to pay in terms of reduced life. A hot filament lamp running partially
dimmed may operate for less than half of its normal lifetime! Fortunately, CCF lamps,
with their robust electrodes, do not suffer from these drawbacks.
Operation
Taylorbrite’s dimming system uses a technique known as Pulse Group Modulation, or
PGM. CCF lamps are best excited by AC voltages in the 20kHz to 50kHz range. The
ideal wave shape is a “sine” wave, similar to the AC voltage wave shape found at a
typical wall outlet. This wave shape is preferred because it generates the least amount
of radio frequency interference (RFI). For the purposes of this discussion, we will refer
to one cycle of the sine wave shape as a ‘pulse’. Since the frequency of these pulses is
fixed, say at 20kHz, then one pulse will occur every 50uS (micro-seconds = 1/1000000
second). This is very fast. So fast that if we were to remove one pulse, the eye would
never notice it, right? Not exactly. In fact, the brain will average the pulses of light and
will cause us to ‘see’ a brightness level lower than what we normally perceive to be
full-on.
TAYLORBRITE
SLIM CCF DIMMERS
TAYLORBRITE
DELUXE CCF DIMMERS
The process of removing pulses from groups is called “Modulation”. Hence the term
PGM means ‘removing pulses from groups’. As long as the pulse removal process continues to occur fast enough, the eye and brain
will continue to average the result. Very effective dimming can be obtained down to 1% of full brightness!
In order for this system to function, the lamp’s power supply must be designed to implement this modulation technique. Consequently, a third wire is supplied for the modulation control signal. This signal is generated by the Taylorbrite dimmer module.
Benefits
The true benefit of this system is the ability to dim efficiently, without generating heat. Furthermore, dimming does not impede the
life of the electrode, nor does it create RFI. Because a “signal” is sent from the dimmer that alters the frequency of the sine wave,
power draw of the CCF lights is reduced in proportion to the light output. This is ideal for maintaining battery capacity at night,
when full brightness is not necessary, but a slight amount of light may be desired.

3”LED Recessed Round Light
Introduction
Taylorbrite s 3 LED Recessed Round Light combines the features and benefits of
light state-of-the art LED (light emitting diode) technology with the rich aesthetics of
high-end European-style light fixtures. Taylorbrite LED lights deliver more light per
Watt of power than typical incandescent or halogen lights, last substantially longer,
operate cooler and are dimmable. Furthermore, they are designed to hold up under
shock and vibration, and resist elements causing corrosion.
Features and Benefits
Low Power Draw: LED lighting technology is preferred over Halogen because of it s
increased efficiency allowing you to generate more light for the power you consume;
this is essential when considering you have limited power capacity on a boat, RV, or
truck.
This significantly reduced power requirement means that:
• More lights can be run for longer periods on batteries before recharging
• Quieter ship/vehicle operation (no need to run the generator because lights are on)
• The electrical system (batteries, alternator, charger/converter and lighting circuit wire gauge) can be downsized.
Low heat / Efficient Operation: Because more power is converted into light and not dissipated as heat, LED lights operate at
a much lower fixture temperature (50°C versus 160°C for halogen). This makes them safer to install in all areas, drastically
reducing ambient heat and demands on cooling systems. The ballast for our LED fixture is electronic and is more properly
referred to as a regulator . The regulator allows our unique LED lights to be operated from 8 Volts to 32 Volts DC, effectively
covering both 12V and 24V systems with one version and maintains virtually constant light output over the entire operating
voltage range. The components are built to endure voltage spikes and drops without any dmaage. These lights are fully
filtered and shielded; therefore there is no concern for EMI interference.
Dimming/Lamp Color: Not only is dimming possible with LEDs - you actually reduce power consumption and thus draw on the
batteries as you dim the lights. Using our proprietary modulation techinque, you can control light output while reducing
current draw proportionately and thus dim efficiently. This benefit is especially useful at night, when you may desire a low
light level without drawing down your battery capacity.
The 1 Watt LED produces a warm white color temperature (3300°K which is similar to a halogen or incandescent lamp) and
the 2.5 Watt version supplies more of a daylight color temperatur e rated around 6500°K.
Long-Life: The LEDs are rated in excess of 50,000 hours of life, which exceeds the operating lifetime of most boats and RVs.
This translates into less time, expense, and hassle associated with changing bulbs. You may never have to replace your
interior lights again!
Attractive packaging: The LED lights have attractive bezels that feature white powder coating, gold, chrome, and brass plating
over a stamped brass surface.
