LEDVANCE releases a fluorescent replacement, the LED TUBE EXTERNAL SYSTEM
LEDVANCE has released the LED TUBE EXTERNAL SYSTEM, offering an LED upgrade for existing T5 and T8 fluorescent lamps. Boasting an external DALI-2 driver, the replacement is both dimmable and suitable for emergency lighting.
Because of the EU RoHS Directive that stipulates that traditional fluorescent lamps may no longer be placed on the market throughout the EU during 2023, many existing systems will have to upgrade. These changes may also be in the pipeline for Australia in the coming years.
The DALI-2-capable LED TUBE EXTERNAL SYSTEM consists of two perfectly matched components: an LED tube and an external driver. Following the principle of “replace components, keep luminaire housing”, even T5 or T8 lamps integrated into a light management system can be upgraded to efficient LED technology quickly, economically and without any compatibility problems. Additionally, the LED TUBE EXTERNAL SYSTEM is dimmable and suitable for emergency lighting.
Thanks to the optimal system efficiency of the LED tube and driver as well as relatively low replacement costs, the switch to LED technology using the LED TUBE EXTERNAL SYSTEM pays off for companies after just a few months – especially when the full potential savings are exploited in combination with sensors in a light management system.
