One of the world's largest neon signs is sparked into life in Seoul, Korea
-- Delivery of electronic neon transformers and electronic neon controllers --

December 08, 2006

The LECIP Corporation of Gifu Prefecture, Japan, has completed delivery of the 15,000 electronic transformers and 700 electronic controllers necessary to illuminate one of the world's largest signs, this one for the Samsung Fire Insurance Company, headquartered in Seoul, and Korea's largest accident insurance company, mounted on the exterior walls and rooftop of the Samsung Fire Home Office Building in Seoul. A lively first official powering-up was held under the watch of persons connected with the company and many citizens of the city.

A neon sign consists of the neon tube, the transformer that drives the tube, and the controller that regulates the transformer. Inside the neon tube, capable of emiting vivid colors, is sealed argon gas, which coupled with the fluorescent coating inside it, works to produce a broad range of colors.

This company produces and sells neon transformers and the electronic controllers that produce such effects as flashing and dimming, and we hold the domestic top share of neon transformers in particular.

LECIP's alpha controller system was adopted for the power and control source for this sign for Samsung Insurance, and we had the privilege of delivering our electronic neon transformers and electronic controllers to execute the contract.
