T5 LED Tube Lights and LED Fluorescent Tube Replacements
LED Tube Lights
Made to effectively replace linear fluorescent tubes, T5 led tubes are an energy efficient alternative for linear fixtures, strip/shop lights, or troffers. LED tube lights not only operate on a fraction of the wattage, but also perform up to 50,000 hours. Depending on your application, these T5 LEDs come in Kelvin temperatures ranging from 3000 Kelvin to 5000 Kelvin. When upgrading to an LED tube, follow the code provided to identify which lamp will work for you. For example the code F54T5/HO represents the LED tube is equal to a 54-Watt fluorescent T5 and emits a high output of light.
T5 LED tubes are currently offered as a plug-and-play version. As long as the LED tube is compatible with the fluorescent ballast, a plug-and-play is as simple as plugging in the tube light. Most LED tubes are compatible with electronic, programmed start, or instant start ballasts, but it is best practice to verify the type of fluorescent ballast your fixture has and if the LED tube is compatible.
