Apr 14, 2016

More options to replace traditional Fluorescent tubes with LED

Aurora, Ohio, April 14, 2016 – Technical Consumer Products, Inc. (TCP) has expanded the DirecT8 series of LED replacements for fluorescent T8 tubes used with an instant start ballast to include 2 foot, 3 foot and 4 foot options with a glass housing. DirecT8 LED T8 tubes provide up to 40 percent energy savings over existing fluorescent lamps and a long 50,000 hour rated life.

“We are excited to have an expanded line of DirecT8 LED Tubes,” said Paul Phillips Senior Director of Product Management at TCP. “Customers can now utilize TCP’s superior LED technology when replacing fluorescent tubes operating on instant start ballasts. There is no rewiring of the fixture or hassle of switching out an entire existing fixture body – just power off, remove the old technology and replace with DirecT8 LED tubes to start taking advantage of energy and maintenance savings.”

DirecT8 LED Tubes are 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.
