Upgrading T8 Fluorescent Lamp Fixtures to LED Now Easier Than Ever with Larson Electronics
KEMP, TEXAS - Larson Electronics is pleased to announce their new 28 watt LED 4-foot replacement lamp. When upgrading existing T8 fluorescent fixtures to LEDs, or direct replacement, the new Magnalight LEDT8-28W-V1 will outperform a standard T8 fluorescent and save money too.
The 28 watt T-series LED Bulb works with any T8 fluorescent light fixtures and can be configured for any T-series fluorescent bulb fixture and requires no ballast for operation. The polycarbonate lens diffuses the light and makes this bulb ideal for food safe environments since there is no glass. The aluminum housing serves as a heat sink and provides rigidity and strength for this LED bulb. The Magnalight 28 Watt LED tube produces more light than a T8 fluorescent and saves on electric costs and maintenance costs while resisting shock and temperature extremes. These LED light tubes can also be plugged directly into fluorescent light fixtures with magnetic ballasts, which make them an ideal retrofit for older T12 fluorescent lights with magnetic ballasts.
These are the first generation of our 28 watt LED tubes. Lumen output is 98.21 lumens per watt for a total of 2750 lumens per bulb. This lamp is also available in 2 foot, 3 foot, alternating current and low voltage versions, making this new series of lamps compatible with numerous different commercial and industrial fixtures. Facility maintenance people will find these bulbs easy to retrofit as there are solutions for ballasted fixtures and fixtures with single end AC power. Most importantly, they will increase the light output and save on electric consumption.
“We couldn’t be more excited about the flexibility and compatibility of these lamps,” Rob Bresnahan, with LarsonElectronics.com said. “This gives both commercial and industrial settings an opportunity to upgrade to LED lighting with little or no hassle.”
