Green Creative releases next-generation T8 BYP LED tube with extra-wide beam design

Nov. 11, 2014
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA - GREEN CREATIVE, the commercial grade LED lighting manufacturer proudly announces the launch of its T8 17.5W 4FT., T8 15W 4FT. and T8 9W 2FT. BYP LED tubes.

GREEN CREATIVE’s new T8 BYP tubes combine a micro-designed driver and compact light engine to create an extra wide beam angle. The integrated driver is stored discreetly within the tube end cap to improve thermal performance and also eliminate dark spots. The result is uniform and seamless light from end to end.

Using an innovative coated glass body, these LED tubes diffuse heat and light more evenly and efficiently than plastic tubes. The redesigned compact light engine is more than 50% smaller than the previous generation and produces a light emitting area of 325º. The wider beam angle and glass diffuser increase a fixture’s total light distribution while replicating a traditional fluorescent tube lighting effect.

“LED tubes that require bypassing the ballast are the best option for long-term energy efficiency and savings,” says GREEN CREATIVE’s Marketing Manager, Matt Leonard. “By removing the ballast, power consumption and cost of ownership are significantly reduced over the lifetime of the product.”

Installation of the new T8 BYP tubes is quick and simple. To make owning, operating, and maintaining these tubes easier, they are configured to run directly off line voltage (120-277V). This eliminates ballast related compatibility problems, lifetime issues, power loss, and maintenance costs. Each tube is powered by a single-ended connection for safe installation, and fixtures installed with GREEN CREATIVE tubes will retain their original UL compliance.

The new T8 BYP tubes come in three versions: T8 17.5W 4FT. BYP, T8 15W 4FT. BYP and T8 9W 2FT. BYP. All versions come in a frosted finish in 3000K, 3500K, 4000K and 5000K CCT. In addition, each tube has a 50,000-hour lifetime, >110 LPW efficacy and is suitable for use in totally enclosed fixtures. All models will be DLC qualified by December. GREEN CREATIVE will also be releasing a ballast compatible direct replacement version in the coming months.
