SEPICN Type A+B T8 Tube

LED T8 tubes are now used widely for replacing linear fluorescent lamps in existing fixtures for commercial and industrial and educational lighting applications due to their energy efficiency, longer lifetime and lower maintenance cost. What most people may not understand is that not all LED T8’s are wired the same. Different LED T8 wiring design affects greatly the installation time and labor costs. In some cases projects can be delayed when the lamp holder configuration was not taken into account. In most projects the targeted fixtures have shunted lamp holders (estimated 60% fixtures in use have shunted lampholders). Using an LED T8 that can only work with a non-shunted lamp holder will increase the project cost with additional time (per fixture) on lamp holder replacement. SEPICN TYPE A & B LED T8 lamps are compatible with both non-shunted and shunted lamp holders. While other major LED T8 lamp manufacturers now provide extra parts (wirings and non-shunted lamp holders) needed to properly complete the project, this only adds to the cost of installation.

Super-easy Installation 

Just switch out the old fluorescent tubes for LEDs, and you’re done. No other modifications are required, but you must make sure your ballast is compatible with the LED T8 tubes you are trying to install.

Varying Light levels/energy consumption 

Fluorescent ballasts have varying ballast factors and since this type uses the existing fluorescent ballast, the wattage and lumen output will vary by ballast factor. Thus giving you the ability to increase or decrease energy consumption and light levels easily by using different ballasts.
