FARMINGDALE, New Jersey, February 28 /PRNewswire/ --

Dialight Corporation has won a major contract to supply over 70,000 LED-based traffic signal modules for use in Miami-Dade County, Florida. In the largest contract for traffic signals by any U.S. city for over 12 months, Dialight LED signals will be used to replace traditional incandescent traffic signals throughout the county.

Brian Todd, vice president at Dialight says, "LED traffic signals use 90 percent less energy and last ten times longer than traditional incandescent traffic signals, so this contract will bring major environmental benefits to Miami-Dade County. The additional benefit of our modules is that they can be retrofitted easily into the existing enclosures of the current energy-inefficient incandescent lamps."

Dialight, with its installation partner Republic ITS, has been selected as the sole supplier of LED traffic signals for the retrofit of all incandescent traffic signal lamps owned and operated by Miami-Dade County.

With over two million LED traffic signals supplied across the U.S. by Dialight over the last 10 years, the company is the acknowledged industry leader. It is also the first company in the U.S. to offer a comprehensive range of LED traffic signal modules that are fully compliant to the new ITE specifications. Dialight products include red, yellow and green modules using state-of-the-art, high-flux LED technology.
