The Improved series offers up to 79% power savings over the commonly used fluorescent tube ballast combinations and, due to lower heat emissions, reduces strain and demand on refrigeration compressors and controls. The series is the industry’s most efficient, consuming as much as 50% less power than comparable LED units from other manufacturers. The SimpleTube series requires no external or remote power supply and can be wired directly to standard 120VAC line voltages. The series boasts a power factor of 0.99 and total harmonic distortion (THDi) of less than 15%. Power consumption ranges from 14.5W for the 5-foot end unit to just under 35W for the 6-foot center unit.
