Larson Electronics Releases a Three Foot 18 Watt LED Light Bulb
Kemp, Texas 75143
Larson Electronics has developed a new 18 watt LED tube lamp that is an excellent choice for upgrading existing T8 fluorescent lamp fixtures as well as a direct replacement for our own LED light fixtures. These are the first generation of our 18 watt LED tubes and they produce a total of 1,768 lumens per bulb.
The LEDT8-36-V1 18 watt T-series LED bulb from Larson Electronics works with any T8 fluorescent light fixture, can be configured for any T series fluorescent light fixture and requires no ballast for operation. Power for this LED tube is single ended, meaning line and neutral voltage are applied to the same end. Internally, the operator simply brings the black wire to one pin and the white wire to the other. When installing this tube in a fluorescent light fixture, the operator must bypass the ballast and wire the power directly to one end of the LED tube. This feature makes the tubes an ideal upgrade for three foot fixtures with failed ballasts. This LED lamp features rotating pins, allowing operators to adjust the direction of light dispersion after installation. While fluorescent lamps are Omni-directional and illuminate 360°, the LED style replacement lamps are directional and offer a 160° beam spread. The polycarbonate lens diffuses the light and makes this bulb ideal for food safe environments as there is no glass. The aluminum housing serves as a heat sink and provides rigidity and strength for this LED bulb. These multi-voltage LED bulbs run directly off any voltage ranging from 110 volts to 277 volts, including 120 volts, 230 volts, and 277 volts AC.
“These new LED tubes were designed for our explosion proof light fixtures, but may be used as replacements in standard fluorescent light fixtures,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “By simply by passing the ballast in a fluorescent fixture, installation is very simple.”
