Record Breaking LED Display

CUMBRIA, England, July 15, 2010 — Forge Europa, maker of LED lamps, displays and solid-state LED lighting assemblies, has helped break the world record for the largest LED image made of individual assembled LEDs. The attempt surpasses the previous record held by Tesco Ireland – their image consisted of 26,981 LEDs.

Measuring 7m by 25m, the image was created entirely from Forge Europa’s unique SPLED LED and over 50,000 pieces of various colors were used. The record attempt took place in Albergen, The Netherlands, with the help of 250 volunteers.

“Installing and mounting the lights went even faster than planned and even one hour after the starting signal, we were ahead of schedule” said Chairman Rob Borgerink. SPLED was chosen due to its IDC termination method and push fit assembly enabling rapid wire connection and instant mounting into the artwork.

SPLED is available in red, yellow, green, blue and white colors and is designed to run from a 12VDC supply. SPLED is designed to push fit into an 8mm diameter hole with IDC connection for rapid wire termination negating the need for PCB mounting and soldering.
