Retrofit LED T8 light for commercial growers and academic research

T8 LED Retrofit Bulb

Transcend Lighting, Inc., leader in LED horticulture lighting, announced today the release of its LED T8 bulb. The 4-foot long LED grow light is ideal for retrofit applications where fluorescent T8 bulbs are currently being used. The LED T8 uses about half the energy of fluorescent T8s, while providing the same light output. In addition, it incorporates Transcend’s patent-pending phosphor technology that provides customers with an emission spectra optimized for plant growth and production yield.

According to Transcend Lighting CEO, Brian Bennett, “The release of the T8 LED bulb builds on the successes we have seen with our other commercial LED products. However, the T8 addresses a different segment of the market. The T8 is primarily intended for commercial growers and researchers involved in tissue culture and early-stage plant propagation.”

The new LED T8 light has a lifetime exceeding 65,000 hours and comes with a 5-year warranty. Transcend Lighting will be exhibiting the LED T8 in booth #732 at the Marijuana Business Conference and Expo from November 16-18 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
