    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.
