LEDtronics has introduced the latest generation of ‘Dual Mode’ U-Bend LED T8 Tube Lights that work with or without a ballast.

The U-bends come in two sizes: the LED24T8U6BR series with 6-inch leg spacing and the LED24T8U2 series with 2-inch leg spacing. They directly retrofit into an existing 2-ft fluorescent fixture with an electronic ballast and inline 2-Pin/G13 base. When the ballast does go out eventually, there’s the option to bypass it and wire directly to the line current.

According to LEDtronics, LED U-bend tube lights are ideal for such applications as ceiling lights in offices, schools, hallways, department stores, retail outlets, restaurants, fast food chains, hospitals and medical offices, as wellas for light boxes and signage backlighting.

The LEDtronics 2-ft, U-bend tubes operate in a voltage input range of 100 to 277VAC, and are offered in a choice of color temperatures: 5000K pure white, 4000K natural white and 3000K warm white. The tubes use 15 watts or less and replace fluorescent tubes up to 34W for a potential energy savings of up to 55%. They provide a 120-degree wide beam of high luminosity — from 1380 lumens for the warm white to 1780 lumens for the pure white CCT, with an efficacy of up to 125 lumens per watt. And for lighting applications where accurate color rendition is important, they have a CRI exceeding 80.

Unlike fluorescent tube lights, RoHS compliant LEDtronics LED tube lights do not produce toxic mercury or risk glass tube breakage hazard, nor do they emit UV or IR radiation. The series comes with UV-protected polycarbonate frosted-white lens and are suitable for damp environments, with a wide operating temperature range of ~-30°C to ~+50°C.
