MUSKEGON — The Muskegon LED lighting manufacturer EarthTronics has introduced a new direct-wire LED replacement for T8 fluorescent light bulbs.
The 15-watt T8 double-end direct-wire LED Type B provides more than 60 percent energy savings over 32-watt fluorescent bulbs, and does not require a ballast.
The new, double-end design provides a quick, fully UL-listed way to retrofit existing fixtures inexpensively. For simple installation, installers can easily cut the existing fluorescent ballast from the circuit and direct wire the line voltage to the existing shunted or un-shunted lampholder without modification.
Engineered for high lumen maintenance more than a 50,000-hour rated life, the bulb, available for both 120 and 220 volt connections, is available in 3500K (warm light), 4000K (cool light) and 5000K (sunlight) light temperatures, with a color rendering accuracy index greater than 82.
Its 300-degree beam angle provides wide light distribution with 2,200 lumens. In addition, 24 inch, 36 inch and U-bend double end direct wire lamps are also available.
