LED Replacements for G13 Fluorescents with T8/bi-pin LED Lighting
TORRANCE, CA -- Energy-efficient T8/bi-pin LED lighting
tubes are the latest fluorescent-replacement LED lighting products LEDtronics announces adds to its green-technology lineup.
LEDtronics® series LED48T8-288-001W bi-pin LED fits into standard
G13 bases and is designed to directly replace conventional T8 fluorescent tubes
that provide general lighting for commercial, residential and architectural lighting
applications. The 48" long white tubes provide the equivalent light output
of 24 to 32-watt fluorescent lamps while consuming less than a maximum of 19
watts. In addition, the LED48T8 tubes run on a wide voltage range of 100 to 290
When it comes to rated life, the LEDtronics series LED48T8 really shines.
hours and more!
While conventional fluorescent lamps typically have a rated life in the range
8,000 to 24,000 hours, the LED48T8 lamps boast an operating life of 50,000
hours and more -- 5.7 years of continuous light. Furthermore, since the
LED lights produce so little wasted heat, the temperature inside the fixture
does not build up as it does with conventional fluorescent tubes.
construction of a UV-resistant polycarbonate housing over the LED tube provides
increased protection (no glass to break) and shielding against many environmental
effects, allowing them to be placed in locations where typical lights would
be more vulnerable to the elements.
Hot and Cold Temperature Applications
LEDs perform well in temperatures
from -35C° to +45C°, making them ideal for applications subject to
frequent on-off cycling, such as garages and basements, while the aluminum
back cover helps with better heat dissipation and a longer lifetime for the
The LEDtronics LED48T8 lights deliver up to 1,342 lumens at a color temperature
of 5000K (pure daylight white) and 1,072 lumens at a color temperature of 3000K
(warm white), compared to the average 810 lumens for equivalent conventional
fluorescent tubes. They provide a brightness of up to 429 maximum foot candela
across a 114-degree beam pattern, with an impressive CRI of 80.
Other benefits of LEDs over fluorescents include: Quick and easy installation
to minimize retrofit costs; no ballast and starter needed, thus no radio frequency
to interfere with radio and television signals; instant, full-strength lightup;
no buzzing or flickering; and directional distribution of light--good
for interior task lighting.
Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching
and environmental extremes. Savings from reduced maintenance costs and downtime
quickly return the capital investment expenditure, making them as friendly
to the environment as they are to the operating budget. The positive environmental
impacts of LED lights additionally come from the consistent, reduced power
consumption, long service life, high-quality light, and cold temperature operation,
with the corresponding reduction in greenhouse gases and the reduced waste
from fewer replacements. Unlike conventional fluorescent bulbs, LED lights
are not disposed of as hazardous waste at end of life.
The LEDtronics LED48T8 tubes comply with RoHS--the lead-free and mercury-free
directive, as well as the CE safety assurance. They emit no infrared or ultraviolet
radiation, and effectively reduce light pollution, being compatible with the
international "dark skies" initiative.
The LED48T8-288-001W Premium 4-ft (1200mm) Tube Lights come in two colors:
Warm White (SIW) and Pure Daylight White (TPW). Other viewing angles, tube lengths and
a variety of LED colors are available for OEM customers. Large-quantity discounts
are available for qualified distributors. Availability is stock to 6 weeks.
