EarthTronics linear LED product line includes direct use T8 on instant start electronic ballasts and a T8 direct wire to 120 or 277 volt. Both models provide more than 30 percent energy savings compared to fluorescent.
Muskegon, Mich. (November 10, 2015) – EarthTronics, dedicated to developing innovative energy-efficient lighting products that provide a positive economic and environmental impact for its customers, now offers “Plug and Play” and Direct Wire linear LED tubes as an energy-efficient solution for replacing T8 fluorescent bulbs for office, retail, hospitality, restaurant and long-term care locations. These Design Light Consortium (DLC)-listed bulbs feature glass tube construction that ensure proper system cooling to support high lumen maintenance over the 50,000-hour rated life of the product. The long rated life combined with 30 percent energy savings delivers a quick return on investment with total lifetime savings that can exceed $88 per lamp at an 11¢/kwh energy cost.
The “Plug & Play” LED is designed for nearly any fixture that accepts T8 fluorescent lamps working on an instant start electronic ballast. No electrician and no outside labor necessary. Simply change the lamp to start saving energy.
EarthTronics Direct Wire LED is designed with an internal driver to eliminate the ballast from the circuit. Just cut the ballast out of the circuit and “direct wire” to the 120 or 277 volt power supply. This is a perfect solution when the best retrofit is to eliminate the fluorescent ballast.
For both T8 LED tubes, options include two light levels, 1800 and 2200 lumens, and three color choices, 3000K, 4000K and 5000K. All feature excellent color rendering of >80. The nearly 300° beam spread provides even illumination. Energy savings of more than 30 percent from these 16- to 18-watt lamps provide a quick return on investment. The long 50,000-hour service life provides years of maintenance-free, bottom-line energy savings. These lamps are DLC listed and may be accepted for utility rebates in many markets.
