Breakthrough; Energy Use of T8 Light Tubes Now Down to 14.6 W and Breaks 100Lm/watt Barrier

Share Article

New standard for 4ft T8 light tubes is now 14.6 W, 1400 directional lumens according to LM-79 tests.

Leds America, Inc. is launching a new Led-O tube to replace fluorescent T8 and T12 tubes.

The standard fluorescent tube can now be replaced by a 14.6W Led-O in existing fixtures after removing the ballast. The downward directed lumens output is equivalent to the fluorescent tube’s as half of its lumens output is lost. This will save over 65% of energy used for lights and 40% of heat that needs to be cooled down by air conditioning.

“The ROI will be several hundreds of percent over the lifetime of the product and payback time is 1-3 years depending on the cost per KWH” says Joel Westermarck , CEO of Leds America, Inc. “Businesses will start saving and improving their cash-flow immediately, even when they use our leasing program. This is the best investment out there”.

Leds America develops and manufactures the proprietary power supplies and tubes under the name of Led-O and is planning to start manufacturing in the US within this year.

The Led-O T8 tube emits no UV light, contains no mercury or any other hazardous vapors, is 100% recyclable, its life time is over 5 years which is warranted, works in -40 degree temperature and is practically unbreakable. Color temperatures offered are 3000K, 4000k and 6000K for normal and high ceiling versions and a voltage range from 85V to 277V.

“The crucial barrier of 100Lm/W is history as the tube actually gets brighter by 12% over the first 1000 hrs. We have the Department of Energy’s Lighting Facts label and LM-80 to back up the claim” Joel Westermarck states. “Go green and save is now the concept”.

The products are marketed under the Led-O brand name which are featured on .
