    LEDtronics LED Ballast-Ready/Dual Mode Tube Lights Work With or Without a Ballast

  • Jun 23, 2016

    LEDtronics® announces our brand new DLC-Listed LED T8 Ballast-Ready/Dual Mode Tube Lights! These unique “Dual Mode” tubes work with or without a ballast!

    LEDtronics always recommends doing a simple, one-time ballast bypass when first installing our LED lighting in order to gain the true energy and money savings obtained from our superior quality products.

    However, we understand the need for Ballast-Ready products. LEDtronics is the true Solutions Provider of the LED industry, so we have the answer with our LED48T8BR series “Dual Mode” LED T8 Tube Lights. There’s no need for a ballast bypass when installing! All it takes is an easy direct retrofit into an existing 4-ft Fluorescent T8 fixture with an electronic ballast, and it’s ready to go!

    Adding to that, when the ballasts do go out (which they will), you can bypass the ballasts then! There’s no need to purchase new ballasts!

    LEDtronics DLC-Listed Dual Mode LED Tubes consume only 14 (standard lumens) or 18 watts (high lumens), and replace Fluorescents up to 32 watts in Ballast-Ready mode, and up to 40 watts in Ballast Bypass mode. They come in the common length of four feet (48 inches) and in the color temperatures Pure White (5000K) and Natural White (4000K).

    These Ballast-Ready/Dual Mode Tubes are ideal for such applications as Office Lighting, Production Area/Warehouse Lighting, Coolers, Freezers & Damp Locations, Retail Store Display Lighting, Parking Garages, Transportation, Undercabinet Lighting, and General & Street Sign Backlighting!

    Our LED48T8BR series LED Tube Lights have an excellent return on investment! They offer energy savings of up to 50 percent over Fluorescent, and have a Lumen Maintenance of over 70 percent at over 50,000 hours (well over five years)! On top of that, they’re on the DLC list of approved products, which makes them eligible for rebates!

    The tubes have instant, full-strength light-up with no buzzing or flickering and an even, directional distribution of light. While conventional fluorescent lamps typically have an ideal-condition rated lab life in the range 8,000 to 24,000 hours, our Dual Mode LED Tube Lights boast a real-world operating life of 50,000 hours and more!

    They come in a Voltage Input range of 100 to 277 VAC, with a wide operating temperature range of ~-30°C to ~+50°C. Their solid-state construction renders them impervious to shock, vibration, and frequent switching. Also, unlike Fluorescent tube lights, LEDtronics LED Tube Lights emit virtually no UV or IR!

    LEDtronics’ DLC-Listed LED T8 Ballast-Ready/Dual Mode Tube Lights come with a 5-year U.S. factory warranty. Different Color Temperatures, lengths, and Dimmability options are available for qualified volume offers. The series is available through LEDtronics distributors, and quantity discounts are available.

    Nora Lighting expands its low profile, surface-mounted Opal LED Series with the new AC Opal. The AC Opal does not require a driver and mounts easily over a standard J-Box, even pancake-type fixture boxes in retrofits or new construction.

    AC Opal measures just 7/8” deep by 7 ¼” wide. The low profile is ideal for bathrooms, laundries, utility areas, pantries, closets, showers and more. The fixture is dimmable and produces even illumination with 1050 lumen (15W) at 90+CRI.  A white polymer lens diffuser eliminates LED diode images.

    The family of Push-in CAGE CLAMP® PCB Terminal Block complete the roll out of the new additions to WAGO solutions. This new family is composed of three series (2624, 2626, 2636) offering streamlined, compact connections for all wire types. Solid and ferruled wires can be directly pushed in for connection, while tool-actuated termination is available parallel to the conductor entry for stranded wire and for the release of all wire types. These PCB terminal blocks are perfect for panel feed through applications because operation and wire entry are from the same plane.

    Real estate in industrial and factory buildings is nearly always at a premium, so instead of using expensive space unnecessarily, Hammond Manufacturing offers a range of three sizes of fold down shelves. FDS Series shelves can be mounted either to the internal or external surface of the door or to the side of a cabinet. The shelves, rated at 100 lbs capacity, lock solidly up into the horizontal position when required and then fold down out of the way to save floor space when they are not needed.

    A new 200 W LED driver from the ADVANCED range – a high-performance component for high-bay industrial luminaires – has been added to Tridonic’s industrial portfolio. The 0-10 V dimmable driver cannot fail to impress thanks to its unniversal input voltage range, IP 67 protection and high temperature resistance.
