The T8 glass LED tubes from New Lights (XGY) provide an economically viable solution for retrofit projects and new construction that have very tight budgets. The use of linear lighting fixtures is ubiquitous in commercial, retail, office, educational, and healthcare facilities which are attuned to both initial and overall life-cycle costs. Extended operating hours, higher utility rates, and short maintenance intervals are driving the switch from fluorescent systems to more sustainable, energy efficient LED lighting systems. Nevertheless, many retrofit LED lighting products do not provide the anticipated benefits due to their higher initial investment.
XGY T8 glass LED tubes are created to provide instant savings and deliver long term benefits of LED lighting with affordability that is comparable to fluorescent tubes. As a manufacturer that achieved successes in manufacturing fluorescent glass tubes for the past twenty years, New Lights continues to build its competitive edge in LED lighting by leveraging their experience, technology, manufacturing infrastructure, and a proactive workforce. T8 glass LED tubes are one of the company’s flagship lines of products that are designed to address the need for products with true economy and uncompromised quality. They are a superb choice for upgrading existing fluorescent lamp fixtures to LEDs as well as new installations in office buildings, supermarkets, warehouses, parking garages, universities, and hospitals.
XGY T8 glass LED tubes that come in 600mm (2ft), 900mm (3ft), 1200mm (4ft), and 1500mm (5ft) length options are available in variety of configurations. Instant-fit design of UL Type A ballast compatible LED tubes eliminates the hassle of rewiring or modifications and facilitates a rapid and safe retrofit that allows for immediate energy savings and quality illumination. UL Type B ballast bypass LED tubes are powered directly from the AC line voltage supplied to the existing fluorescent fixtures. The UL-certified dual mode LED glass tubes can operate on a ballast or directly on AC line voltage. XGY T8 glass LED tubes are offered in versions with G13 medium bi-pin base aluminum or plastic end caps, either rotatable or non-rotatable.
Operating at 9 to 22 watts of power for LED densities ranging from 48 to 120 LEDs per strip, XGY T8 glass LED tubes offer a wide of lumen packages for replacement of fluorescent tubes from 18 to 58 watts. The glass tubes use Honglitronic 2835 SMD LEDs to produce high illuminance with a minimum color rendering of 80. With a luminous efficacy of up to 120 LPW, XGY T8 glass LED tubes provide 60% or greater energy savings over T8 and T12 fluorescent tubes for years to come. The LED tube is equipped with an integration driver that uses an integrated circuit to perform power factor correction (PFC). The drivers provide high performance regulation and control on the current output provided to the LED load with high power efficiency maintained across a universal input range - 85-265 VAC or 120-277 VAC.
XGY T8 glass LED tubes not only maintain the same rigidity as with fluorescent tubes, but also have a beam angle (320°) that is very close to the fluorescent tubes. The glass tube offers excellent heat dissipation to ensure that useful life, color quality and lumen output will not be compromised due to excessive thermal energy buildup at LED junctions. XGY takes extra care in shipment of fragile glass tubes and offers a choice of packing options to ensure its products will be shipped safely while accommodating clients' needs for customization in packaging, branding and labelling. These products can be packed in 60g paper sleeves, corrugated card boxes, 350g white cardboard boxes, paper tubes, air cushions, or foam racked boxes.
