*PRICING PER TUBE*
120VAC cool white fluorescent replacement LED tubes in 2 foot and 4 foot lengths. Perfect for on-board or home use.
We use these over our workbenches, and they are fantastic. We have many customers with larger yachts that use 120VAC fluorescent tubes in the engine room, and they have been asking for a 120VAC version of our LED tubes that can operate on AC shore power or via their AC-generators. We listened, and these exceptionally bright 10W and 20W LED tubes are the result.
These tubes come in 24" and 48" lengths, and will replace T8 (1"∅) and T12 (1.5"∅) fluorescent tubes with the bi-pin ends. Our tubes can replace either T8 or T12 tubes because our tubes do not operate off of the fluorescent's ballast, and the pin size is identical for both T8 and T12 tubes.
Our tubes are simple to install, and outperform your current 2' or 4' fluorescents by a wide margin. The 24" tube is 10W and 800 lumens, while the 48" tube is 20W and 1600 lumens. Because LED's do not require the power-hungry ballast that is within your existing fixture, you must bypass the ballast, which is generally a very easy conversion. Instructions are included.
- 120VAC, 50/60Hz
- 10W (0.09A) nor 20W (0.18A) Power Factor >90%
- 800 or 1600 Lumens
- 6000°k color temperature
- Replaces T8 and T12 24" or 48" tubes
- Fit 2' and 4' tube 120VAC fixtures
- Replaces T8 or T12 tubes with bi-pin ends
- It is best to open your fixture and look at the existing ballast. If the diagram printed on the ballast shows two wires coming from each of the "tombstones", then the conversion is simple and should take only a few minutes per fixture. If the diagram shows just one wire coming from either tombstone, then the conversion is a little bit more involved, and can take longer. The good news is that the vast majority of marine fixtures are the easy T12 2 wire type. Contact us if you have questions.
- For safety and easy of wiring, these are wired from one end only. They will still attach to the fixture as normal, but power need only be applied from one end. This saves time wiring, and makes the tubes safer.
- Hot and Neutral wire directly to the existing tombstones, on just one end of the tube, bypassing the ballast, and then you are done. These will operate on 120VAC at 50 or 60 Hz. They draw about 20W each, and produce much more useable light, so they are great for engine rooms, work benches, etc.
