Oct 6, 2016

Even more options to replace traditional fluorescent tubes with LED

Aurora, Ohio, October 6, 2016 – Technical Consumer Products, Inc. (TCP), a leader in energy-efficient lighting innovations, today announces the availability of a higher lumen version of its DirecT8 Series of LED T8 Replacement Tubes. The additional models of the DirecT8 LED replacements for fluorescent T8 tubes used with an instant start ballast to include a 4 foot lamp offering 2000 lumens on average, while providing up to 40 percent energy savings over traditional fluorescent lamps.

“We are happy to expand our DirecT8 LED line,” said Paul Philips, Senior Director of Product Management at TCP. “The higher lumen packages offer our customers more choices when making the switch to LED. Now, customers can determine if they want to choose an integrated LED Luminaire or if they just want to directly replace the fluorescent tubes when looking at higher ceiling applications.”

The full lines of DirecT8 LED T8 Replacement tubes includes 2 foot, 3 foot and 4 foot lengths available in 30K, 35K, 41K and 50K color temperatures and deliver comparable lumens to equivalent fluorescent systems. These lamps consume fewer watts of power and are compatible with 120 volt to 277 line voltages. Unlike the incumbent fluorescent technology, these lamps do not contain mercury and turn instantly on and off with no annoying warm-up time. This makes the DirecT8 series the ideal choice for any application still utilizing fluorescent technology.
