Weldon's V-MUX and LED Lighting Featured on Zero Vehicle Emissions School Bus

COLUMBUS, OH, November 8, 2011 –Columbus lighting manufacturer and electrical controls designer Weldon, a division of Akron Brass, is the chosen supplier of energy-efficient, durable, and serviceable LED lighting products and V-MUX® multiplexing solutions on the new eTrans Type A all-electric school bus manufactured by Trans Tech Bus based out of New York. 

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconducting device that produces light as an electrical current passes through it. LEDs use much less power than traditional bulbs and have a significantly longer life. In addition to energy efficiency and lower power consumption, Weldon’s patented V-LED technology with serviceable LED also increases student safety due to its extraordinary brightness and signaling power. V-LED diodes are field upgradeable, which allows the user to reap the benefits of future LED technologies without reinvesting in a complete fixture. LED is becoming the leading choice for School bus lighting because it saves downtime and reduces operating costs providing years of maintenance free life.

Multiplexing is a means of transmitting multiple signals over one line. Weldon’s V-MUX vehicle multiplexing systems integrates all systems and components and is a complete electrical control solution.  Control all your lighting and HVAC with the full color Vista display screen.

The first two all-electric busses manufactured Trans Tech Bus, a TCI Company, debuted at the National Association of Pupil Transportation (NAPT) conference held on October 25, 2011 in Cincinnati, Ohio and offers a “green” solution for transporting students.
