The New MegaLight LED T8 Tube

August 4, 2015

Hudson, OH  44236 – Today MegaLight announced the introduction of their new LED T8 bulb. The new LED tube lamps (TLEDs) replace current fluorescent tubes, use up to 40 percent less energy compared to fluorescent tube lighting, and require less maintenance due to their long life. (See product specifications in Table 1.)

The MegaLight LED T8 replacement tube requires no re-wiring of current lighting fixtures. The innovative design of the TLEDs ensures compatibility with existing electronic and magnetic ballasts and sockets. The result is a dramatic reduction in the time it takes to change from fluorescent to TLED lighting – just a matter of seconds per fixture.

Jack Pan, MegaLight Director of Operations, said, “Using the new LED T8 tube does not require any special knowledge or tools. You simply replace the old fluorescent tube with a new TLED tube.”

Linear fluorescent tube lighting is one of the most common types of lighting used in stores, office buildings, and industrial spaces worldwide. In the United States, the estimated square footage of office space lighted by linear fluorescent tubes is 7.4 billion square feet (IBIS 33512), which presents a huge opportunity for energy and costs savings. Replacing the current fluorescent lighting with TLED lamps globally could result in savings of over 55 billion dollars in energy costs.

Advantages of the LED T8 Tube, beyond the 40% energy savings, the bulbs work with or without a ballast, have better tube transparence, they provide a wide beam angle – 240 degrees, and they are mercury free.
