MaxLite DirectFit LED T8 U-bend lamps are the ideal plug and play solution that works straight out of the box. Designed to deliver over 1800 lumens, these energy-saving LED lamps are quick, easy and safe to install into existing linear fluorescent fixtures without any extra effort or re-wiring. MaxLite DirectFit LED T8 U-bend (also called U-bent or U-shaped) lamps use your existing T8 instant-start electronic ballasts (please see the specification sheet for a list of compatible ballasts), thus minimizing maintenance and labor costs.
This DLC Qualified Maxlite LED T8 U-bend has been designed and engineered for demanding commercial applications. Suitable for use in totally enclosed, bi-pin socketed luminaires, such as 2-by-2 foot T8 U-bend fluorescent fixtures, the 13-watt replacement lamps feature a compact light engine that delivers 1,800 lumens (when using a normal ballast factor ballast) using a 160-degree beam angle. An integral driver is stored within the tube's cap to optimize thermal performance and eliminate dark spots, allowing for bright, even illumination to run continuously from end to end of the U-shaped tube. The T8 13W LED U-bend DirectFit tube comes in a frosted finish in 3500K, 4000K and 5000K CCT. In addition, each tube has a 50,000-hour lifetime (based on L70 standards), greater than 138 LPW efficacy and is suitable for use in totally enclosed fixtures. These are also suitable for damp locations; they are not for use with direct contact with outdoor elements.
The MaxLite U-bends are a plug and play direct replacement of your current 32 Watt T8 fluorescent U-bend lamps. Each lamp consumes just 13 watts of 120-277 or 347 volt input power, depending on your ballast - saving you 50% in energy costs! These T8 fluorescent to LED retrofit bulbs, when using a normal ballast factor ballast, generate 1,800 lumens (that's an awesome 138 lumens per watt) of 83 CRI light. These lamps are dimmable (see a list of compatible dimmers in the specification sheet), measure 7.00" diameter by 22.44" in Maximum Overall Length (MOL), are UL Listed, and RoHS compliant, containing no mercury and allowing for an easy disposal.
This plug-n-play direct replacement for T8 fluorescent tubes is compatible with Instant Start ballasts and requires no rewiring during installation. MaxLite has provided a ballast compatibility chart for guidance when selecting a ballast and lamp combination (please refer to the specification sheet). Lamps were tested for compatibility with the Instant Start ballasts shown in the compatibility chart. Ballasts that do not appear on the chart may still be compatible but have not been tested. All testing has been performed with a stable main supply. The quality of the local main, existing installation and wiring, as well as different manufacturer versions of the above ballasts may affect lamp performance. Since no assurance can be provided regarding these factors, it is a general recommendation to perform a test on-site prior to installing the LED lamps.
