EarthBulb direct wire LED linear T8 lamps eliminate the need for electronic ballast or drivers for maximum energy savings. This 3500K color temperature lamp consumes only 12 watts to produce 1700 lumens. A high Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 82 insures excellent color clarity. The 300 degree beam angle provides a wide distribution pattern and is perfect for directing more light to the working surface from existing troffer fixtures and strip fixtures as well as task and display lighting applications. Perfect for replacement of T8 fluorescent tubes. This lamp is engineered for high lumen maintenance over its 50,000 hour rated. To install, simply remove the existing fluorescent ballast and direct wire to the line voltage. This type B lamp is double end direct wire so no lamp holder modifications are necessary, just run the black (load) to the one end of the lamp and white (neutral) to the other. Operates on 120-277V.
