LED Super Strip Light

Are T5 High Output Fluorescents The Most Economical And Efficient High Bay Lighting? The Answer is Not Anymore.

LED Super Strips Replace Existing Fluorescent Tubes And Last 100,000 Hours

Our new LED Super Strip Lights are now the most economical and efficient LED lighting products on the market. The typical T5 High Output Light fixture for High Bay Warehouse lighting consist of (6) T5 HO 54 Watt Fluorescent Tubes. Each bulb puts out 54W for a total fixture wattage of 324 Watts. If you add the ballast for those bulbs which will be about 40W you will have a total of 364 Watts.

(5) LED Super Strips Replace (6) T5 HO Fluorescent Tubes. 54% Energy Savings and 30% More Light

Each T5 lamp will put out about 4600 lumens each for a grand total of 27,600 lumens per fixture. Lifespan of a T5 High Output they say is about 20,000 hours. That is if it meets all the requirements.

Lamp manufacturers claim that T5 and T5 high output (T5 HO) lamps last 20,000 hours (Philips Lighting 2001/2002; OSRAM SYLVANIA 2002; GE Lighting 2001/2002). This average rated lamp life is measured at temperatures between 15°C (59°F) and 50°C (122°F) when operated on electronic programmed start ballasts on a three-hour switching cycle—3 hours on and 20 minutes off—and designated as the number of hours after which 50% of the lamps fail. The 20,000-hour lamp life of T5 lamps is the same as the lamp life of most T8 lamps, although newly developed prolonged-life T8 lamps have lives of 4,000 or 10,000 hours longer than T5 lamps. Lamps operated on longer burning cycles will have longer life spans. Shorter burning cycles (frequent switching on and off) reduce lamp life. Use of ballasts that do not meet lamp requirements set forth by the lamp manufacturers may also result in reduced lamp life.

LED SUPER STRIP LIGHT RETROFIT PACKAGE

The new LED Super Strip Retrofit package will consist of only (3) 22”, 32W Super Strip lights and (1) 96W driver and (2) 22”, 32W Super Strip Lights with a 64W driver. We will produce 23,250 lumens at ONLY 128 Watts versus 364W for the T5 HO Fixture.

That is a 64% energy savings along with providing about 30% more light and lasting 5-6 times the existing T5 HO Fluorescent Tubes.
