LED T8 Tube is a linear tube designed as replacement lighting used in all types of indoor and outdoor fixtures. LED lighting technology is self-ballasted and does not require a remote power supply. LED Tubes are used for many types of applications and are ideal replacement lighting for standard and high-performance T8 and T12 fluorescent tubes.
LED T8 Tubes are designed to fit into lamp sockets of existing fluorescent tubes and bypassing the ballast per the installation instructions. Installing the T8 LED tube is as simple as installing fluorescent tubes. Simply snap in place and rotate
T8 LED tubes come in 2’, 4’, 5’, 6’, and 8’ lengths. It comes in color temperatures of 3500k, 4100k, and 5000k. Some applications include store lighting, office lighting, street sign backlighting, display cases, recreation vehicles such as buses and train interiors, coolers and freezers.
The LEDs last up to 70,000 plus hours, after which the light output will fall below the initial output. The light will continue to operate thousands of hours thereafter, but at less than 70%
LED T8 bulbs have a superior operation in cold temperatures compared to fluorescent lamps. And because they are solid-state, the LEDs have high shock and vibration resistance bodies with polycarbonate lenses eliminating the hazard of glass tube breakage.
LEDs light up with full intensity with no buzzing or flickering and are environmentally friendly. LED T8 lamps eliminate the mercury hazard present in the fluorescent tubes. They also are recyclable. These tubes consume almost ½ as many watts as fluorescents, reducing electric bill cost.
Light output and light pattern is equal to or greater than standard fluorescent tubes. Lower maintenance equals lower maintenance costs. Because of their long life and the self-ballasted feature, LED bulbs do not need to be replaced nearly as often making it especially beneficial in hard-to-reach areas that may require costly lifts, ladders, and scaffolds.
The LED tubes also remain cool to the touch reducing the need for ventilation and air conditioning and therefore reducing the electrical bill. With both reduced energy costs, and maintenance cost replacing fluorescent tube lighting with LED T8 tubes will result in huge savings.
