The Larson Electronics LEDT48-18-T8 18 watt T8-series LED tube lamp is an excellent choice for upgrading existing fluorescent lamp fixtures to LEDs as well as a direct replacement for our own LED light fixtures.
The LEDT48-18-T8 produces 2,250 lumens, works with T8 fluorescent light fixtures, is available in 4 foot lengths and requires no ballast to operate. The lenses are offered in light frost or clear, and the lamps operate on high voltage120-277V AC or low voltage 11-25V AC/DC. The lens diffuses the light and makes this bulb ideal for food safe environments as there is no glass. The aluminum housing serves as a heat sink and provides rigidity and strength for this LED bulb. LED light tubes can also be plugged directly into fluorescent light fixtures with magnetic ballasts, which make them an ideal upgrade for older T8 fluorescent lights with magnetic ballasts.
These LED fluorescent tube replacements can be used as upgrades or replacements to our own LarsonElectronics.com explosion proof fluorescent lights, explosion proof paint spray booth lights as well as any other T8 series light fixture the operator already has in house. They can be used as replacements in standard fluorescent light fixtures.
In fluorescent light fixtures with electronic ballasts, the operator needs to bypass the ballast and wire the power directly to one or both ends of the LED tube (black wire to one end and white wire to the other). Thus, this is an ideal upgrade for 2 foot fixtures with failed ballasts. These multi-voltage LED fluorescent bulbs run directly off any voltage ranging from 100 volts to 277 volts, including 120 volts, 230 volts, 277 volts. This particular LED tube can also be ordered in 12VDC versions as well.

|12/19/13||Incandescent Bulb Phase Out Not a Light Bulb Ban|
First and foremost, it needs to be reiterated that the phase out of incandescent light bulbs is not a ban. Although there is ample information available regarding the new efficiency standards lighting technology must meet in order to comply with federal and international legislation, there are still many who characterize the discontinuation of the incandescent bulb as a ban. The reality is that lighting manufacturers are free to produce incandescent bulbs of any wattage they desire and sell them [...]
|11/15/13||LED versus Fluorescent: Lumens per Watt is Only Part of the Story|
Today it is commonplace to find T8 fixtures producing on the order of 80 to 100 lumens per watt of output, putting fluorescent lighting at the top of the efficient lighting ratings in terms of lumen per watt efficiency. However, this does not tell the whole story, and other factors come into play which affect the real world efficiency of fluorescent lighting and brings it a little more down to earth. [...]
|08/31/13||Can LEDs Replace the Venerable Fluorescent Tube?|
LEDs are solid state in their design and have no glass or gases used in their construction. They resemble circuitry more than they do a lamp, and are typically very resistant to damage from vibrations and impacts that would shatter normal bulbs. LEDs also have no toxic materials to release in the event they are damaged, making them an attractive alternative for many consumers to the fluorescent if only for this reason.
|09/01/12||T12 Fluorescent Light Phaseout and Upgrade Alternatives|
The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 helped usher in a new era of tighter energy efficiency standards, and although the T12 for its time was indeed an efficient luminary, its design is such the further improvements to increase its efficiency are neither practical nor cost effective. As a result, the T12 is unable to meet the new energy standards required for modern lighting technologies and as of July 2012 was phased out of production.
|09/14/11||Options for Meeting the Lighting Requirements of the 2005 Energy Policy Act and the Energy Independence Act of 2007|
These efficiency standards apply to more than just incandescent bulbs and will have an impact on all forms of lighting. As a result, it’s important that consumers begin looking ahead and planning a change to the more efficient lighting types that will soon be taking the place of less efficient forms that cannot meet the new standards. LEDs, high efficiency halogens, compact fluorescent, high output fluorescent tubes and electronically controlled fluorescent ballasts will soon represent the large [...]
|07/13/11||LED Advances and World Acceptance|
All over globe, LEDs are popping up everywhere. You can now find LEDs in traffic signals, parking lot lamps, shopping centers, ships and aircraft and industrial manufacturing facilities just to name a few of the most popular applications. In cities and states across the US, reports are appearing in the media that back up the energy efficiency potential of LEDs, with many companies and local governments reporting reductions in energy consumption of up to 70% in applications where a full [...]
