Single End LED T8 FROSTED shatterproof glass lens retrofit tube, Type-B, 18watt, 5000K Cool White Light

# LED-T8-SE-SGL-FROST-5000K
Single End LED T8 18watt shatterproof frosted glass lens 4-foot, Type-B ballast bypass retrofit tube, 50,000hrs lamp, cool white 5000K light, integrated LED driver for fluorescent T8 / T12 lamp replacement for use in ballast bypass retrofit applications where power is supplied through one end of the tube and non-shunted sockets / tombstones are installed.

Designer's Note

Although our retrofit LED T8 tubes fit 99% of the fixtures out there, there is a small percentage of older T12 fixtures that look just like the one in our video but will be hard to retrofit. We recommend that you try the lamp in the sockets before you start the process of the retrofit. Of course you will want to do that with the power turned off to the fixture. The issue is that some of the very old T12 lamp sockets and fixtures do not allow room for the length of the new T8 retrofit tube.
To be installed by licensed electrician only. Requires non-shunted lamp holders (tombstones). See part number: 1226SW - Do not use with dimmers.

Details

Replace 40watt T8 or T12 fluorescent lamps with 50,000hr G13 base T8 LED lamp for easy installation in ballast bypass retrofit applications where power is supplied through one end of the tube and non-shunted sockets / tombstones are installed.

  • Suitable for damp locations
  • Not for use with dimmers
  • Not intended for emergency exits
  • Do not exceed an operating temperature of 113° F
  • How much brighter are the LED T8 retrofit tubes then my existing fluorescent T8 tubes?

    Putting the issue on how many lumens aside for now, we thought we would do a real world test. Here is what we did. We put up just one fluorescent T8 32watt tube at 3000K in our fixture and at 4' from the fixture we measured 31 foot candles. We did the same test with the 4000K LED-T8 18 watts and got a reading of 61 foot candles and with the 5000K LED-T8 20watts we got a reading of 64 foot candles. Now it is important to remember that the human eye will see the light a little different. The 5000K will give a very cool-white color that may be good for some installations. The 4000K will be a little warmer in color, and although it may not appear to be as bright, it may make the environment more pleasing. The light output on both LED tubes measures almost double to that of fluorescent tubes.
