Users who are focused on light levels or energy savings can choose from two available power levels—25.5 watts and 22.5 watts—as a direct replacement option for F54T5HO fluorescent lamps.

“For installers who want to upgrade their T5HO fluorescent fixtures to LED technology, the EVERLINE LED T5HO Tubes provide energy savings and application flexibility with easy direct-to-socket installation,” said Greg Bennorth, director of product management for Universal’s EVERLINE LED Tubes. “Additionally, these T5HO tubes offer instant on at full light output, even in cold ambient temperatures.”

The T5HO tubes, which increase energy savings by more than 50% versus standard F54T5HO fluorescent lamps, are compatible with most Programmed Start ballasts. The tubes are easy to install and offer less maintenance than traditional fluorescent, with a 50,000+ hour lifetime at L70.

The tubes offer light quality with a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 82 and correlated color temperatures of 4000K and 5000K. A seamless glass design ensures no aging, discoloration, or bowing from aging plastic tubes. The wide 240° beam angle eliminates dark zones ensuring uniformity and accuracy of light output.

LED replacement tubes offer a low initial cost to an LED retrofit using existing compatible Instant Start or Programmed Start ballasts. The tubes are mercury free and RoHS compliant.
