TORRANCE, Calif., March. 29, 2019 — LEDtronics® introduces the latest generation
of ‘Dual Mode’ U-Bend LED T8 Tube Lights that work with or without a ballast.
Installing the UL-Classified U-Bend tubes is as easy as taking the fluorescent
out and popping our LED tube in.
For most LED lighting installations, a one-time
ballast bypass would have been necessary for installation, but with the ‘Dual
Mode’ LED U-Bend
Tube Lights, it’s simply plug and play. The U-bends come in
two sizes—the LED24T8U6BR series with 6-inch leg spacing and the LED24T8U2
series with 2-inch leg spacing. They directly retrofit into an existing 2-ft
fixture with an electronic ballast and inline 2-Pin/G13 base. When the ballast
does go out eventually, there’s always the option to bypass it and wire directly
to the line current.
These LED U-bend tube lights are ideal for such applications
as ceiling lights in offices, schools, hallways, department stores, retail
fast food chains, hospitals
and medical offices, as well as for light boxes
and signage backlighting, to name a few.
The LEDtronics 2-ft, U-bend tubes operate
in a voltage input range of 100 to 277VAC, and are offered in a choice of color
temperatures: 5000K pure white,
4000K natural white and 3000K warm white. The tubes use only 15 watts or less
and replace fluorescent tubes up to 34W – energy savings of up to 55%. They
provide a 120-degree wide beam of high luminosity – from 1380 lumens for the
warm white to 1780 lm for the pure white CCT, boasting an efficacy of up to
125 lumens per
watt. And for lighting applications where accurate color rendition is important,
they have a CRI exceeding 80.
The U-bend LED
tube lights have instant-on light
with no buzzing or flickering and an even, directional distribution of light.
While conventional fluorescent
lamps typically have an ideal-condition rated lab life in the range 8,000 to
24,000 hours, our Dual Mode LED Tube Lights boast a real-world operating life
of more than 50,000 hours with lumen maintenance of over 70 percent. Their
solid-state construction renders them impervious to shock, vibration and frequent
Unlike fluorescent tube lights, RoHS compliant LEDtronics LED tube
lights do not produce toxic mercury or risk glass tube breakage hazard, nor
do they emit
UV or IR radiation. The series comes with UV-protected polycarbonate frosted-white
lens and are suitable for damp environments, with a wide operating temperature
range of ~-30°C to ~+50°C.
The LEDtronics series of LED T8 Dual Mode U-Bend
Tube Lights come with an unconditional 5-year U.S. factory warranty. Different
tube lengths, color temperatures and
voltage options are available for qualified volume offers. The series is
available through LEDtronics distributors, and quantity discounts are available.
