Muskegon, Mich. – EarthTronics, dedicated to developing innovative energy efficient lighting products that provide a positive economic and environmental impact for its customers, introduces its new Type A direct install linear LED tube to simply replace T8 fluorescent lamps working on instant start, program rapid start and emergency back-up electronic ballast systems. This breakthrough LED T8 technology provides for the first time the opportunity to cost-efficiently change out all T8 fluorescent lamps within a facility. Its 50,000 hour rated life combined with a 46 percent energy savings provide a quick return on investment with total lifetime savings that can exceed $82 dollars per lamp at an 11¢/kwh energy cost.

“The addition of both program start and emergency ballast compatibility to our LED T8 product line provides installers the ability to change every lamp when retrofitting a property. There is no longer a need to leave fluorescent tubes in fixtures with sensitive emergency lighting ballast equipment,” said Tripp Smith, Vice President of Sales at EarthTronics. “There is no electrician and no outside labor necessary. Simply change the lamp to start saving energy.”

Ideal for replacing T8 fluorescent tubes in office, retail, hospitality, restaurant and long-term care locations, the new type A LED T8 product line includes a new 6-inch U-bend; and 24-inch, 36-inch and 48-inch LED tube. They are available in three color choices, 3000K, 4000K and 5000K. All feature excellent color rendering of greater than 80. Even illumination is provided by the nearly 300° beam spread.
