Features and Benefits
- Easily retrofits existing T12 fluorescent light fixtures to energy efficient and high lumen output T8 light fixtures.
- Suitable for use with all manufacturers' T8 lamps.
- Lowers maintenance costs due to less frequent T12 lamp replacement.
- HIgh efficiency T8 lamps use 40% fewer watts, produce 40% less heat, and output 10% more lumens when compared to older magnetic T12 light fixtures.
- Building owners and facility managers can significantly increase their energy savings by:
- Reducing your kWh consumption to 40% or more. More over they can reduce the demand (kW) charge, where applicable, which in many cases can account for 50% of the monthly electrical bill.
- Reducing the HVAC costs by removing a significant amount of the excess heat generated by existing inefficient T12 fluorescent lighting.
- Reduces the negative side effects of poor light quality. Worker productivity can increase 9-16% or more as the result of improved light quality.
- P/Ns: 14070, 14071, 14076 and 14077 may be suitable for use with Linear LED Retrofit Lighting. These designated RetroFit Conversion Kits part numbers fitted with "non-shunted" lamp holders are suitable for use with linear LED engines (T8 shaped LED tubes) as long as the LED engine is classified per UL 1598C.
