MUSKEGON — The Muskegon-based high-efficiency lighting manufacturer EarthTronics has introduced two new LED-based replacements for fluorescent light bulbs.
The 2,200-lumen, 15-watt T8 LED linear tube delivers 146 lumens per watt, while the 3,200-lumen, 25-watt T5 LED linear tube delivers 128 lumens per watt. The latter is a one-for-one replacement for the popular 54-watt T5HO fluorescent lamp used in high-bay fixtures.
Company officials said the LED tubes feature glass tube construction to ensure proper cooling to support high lumen maintenance for a 50,000 hour rated life combined with over 50 percent energy savings to offer a quick return on investment.
The energy efficient T8 and T5 Type A LEDs from EarthTronics are Design Light Consortium listed and UL rated for Type A “plug & play” on electronic fluorescent ballast.
The new T8 LED is engineered to work with dimming systems popular in meeting and conference rooms, as well as in energy saving daylight harvesting applications. This T8 Type A direct install LED linear tube is compatible with instant start, program rapid start and emergency back-up electronic ballast systems.
Ideal for replacing T8 fluorescent tubes in office, retail, hospitality, restaurant and long-term care locations, the new T8 Type A LED product lines include a new 24-inch, 36-inch, U-bend and long PL lamps. They are available in four color choices: 3000K, 3500K, 4000K and 5000K. All feature excellent color rendering of greater than 80. Even illumination is provided by the nearly 300-degree beam spread.
