Q&A SECTION

Why would I switch to LED? Well everyone has their own reasons, but a few things - they look cool, they turn on and off more quickly so the lighting for inserts is especially more interesting, they last forever - no changing bulbs, they emit little heat, so less playfield heat overall which can overtime cause damage, the use less electricity so they are 'greener'.

Are all LED's the same?  Absolutely not, our LEDs are Pinball LEDs manufactured specifically for Pinball, using the correct voltages, the right configurations, and taking into consideration the usage in a pinball machine. Other LEDs out there are manufactured for Automotive use and in many cases will not work.

What about Brightness, I see some multiple LED versions, and I want bright ones are these bright? Part of the issue on Pinball machines is the lighting cannot be TOO bright - these LEDs are designed and tested in pinball machines to be the RIGHT brightness - too bright really is detracts from overall visual effects and can obstruct play creating too much of a glare on the playfield surface and surrounding areas.

Do your Color Changing LED's startup on different colors or do they cycle the same? They all have capacitors built into them to insure that they create a continuous random patten of color - this is important as without it when there are quick on/offs to the bulb the bulb will startup on the same color each time, thus making it look NOT like a color changing bulb - the bulbs we carry all will work correctly

What are the technical specifications of the bulbs a reference? The key specifications for these bulbs is the socket compatibility, the voltage compatibility, AC and DC variations. Additionally, there are brightness and angle of light considerations in the development and these bulbs have been selected to be the best fit for pinball games - and not too bright which creates a bad impression for the lighting of a game. In terms of technical specifications, we are working on getting some of these, but in researching this question, you will find that luminous intensity even in photography circles is not a simple thing - method of measuring bulbs (lumens, lux, footcandles, candela, etc) is different depending on the application, and there is no measurement standard.

Are these new and unproven? No, they have been available worldwide for some time, and are installed in hundreds of games (including the videos below), and have very positive comments

What is included in the kits? Kits are defined for different areas for the game, and will highlight the scope that the kit covers. Often they are 'playfield' kits which are most if not all of the bulbs required to switch out to LED bulbs. Other kits may be backbox only, or the entire game. Depending on the game, there may be one or more color changing bulbs as well as popbumper bulbs as well.

Any things to know about? A few things - 1) firstly, LED's in controlled circuits (those controlled by CPU, etc) are generally pulsed, and so with LEDs due to their instant on/off, you will see a bit more of the pulsing especially when an insert is on for awhile. This happens with incandescents as well, but is not as noticable due to the differing characteristics. It's not that pronounced, but if you look hard enough you can see it. 2) Purple/Pink LEDs tend to be less bright due to the color of the bulb, so use these sparingly. 3) LEDs which can do a popbumper justice are still being worked out. While LEDs do work fine in popbumpers and some of the game kits include them, it will be up to you if the effect is strong enough or you keep the regular bulbs in the popbumpers. This is primarily due to getting the light to radiate precisely the same way that regular bulbs do in popbumper enclosured. 4) Regular White lights tend to be bright white which can also have a bluish tint. "Warm" white lights tone the light spectrum down making the light yellower.

Anything special to know about AC and DC bulbs? AC bulbs will work in DC circuits, but DC bulbs will NOT work in AC circuits. AC Circuits are usually General Illumination circuits of newer games, and all bulbs in older games. DC Circuits are almost always ‘controlled’ circuits which are on/off bulbs controlled by the CPU switching the circuit on and off – as in Inserts and other feature lights on the playfield.
