LEDtronics New LED ‘Dual Mode’ U-Bend Tube Lights Work with or without Ballast
LEDtronics has introduced their latest generation of ‘Dual Mode’ U-Bend LED T8 Tube Lights that work with or without a ballast. Installing the UL-Classified U-Bend tubes is as easy as taking the existing fluorescent out and popping the LED tube in.
For most LED lighting installations, a one-time ballast bypass would have been necessary for installation, but with the ‘Dual Mode’ LED U-Bend Tube Lights, it’s simply plug and play. The U-bends come in two sizes – the LED24T8U6BR series with 6-inch leg spacing and the LED24T8U2 series with 2-inch leg spacing. They directly retrofit into an existing 2-ft fluorescent fixture with an electronic ballast and inline 2-Pin/G13 base. When the ballast does go out eventually, there’s always the option to bypass it and wire directly to the line current.
These LED U-bend tube lights are ideal for such applications as ceiling lights in offices, schools, hallways, department stores, retail outlets, restaurants, fast food chains, hospitals and medical offices, as well as for light boxes and signage backlighting, to name a few.
The LEDtronics 2-ft, U-bend tubes operate in a voltage input range of 100 to 277VAC, and are offered in a choice of color temperatures. You can see the complete Product Release at:

New LED T5 Tube Offers Efficient Lighting for Navy, Cruise Ship Bunk Beds
LEDtronics has introduced a new type of T5 LED tube light that is specially designed for Navy or cruise ship bunk bed lighting. The 12-inch long LED tube light has a “Made in USA” option, and the durable LED technology makes it ideal to withstand conditions on board.
Navy ships are known to spend over a few months at sea. Oftentimes, sea turbulence and weather disturbance can affect the ship’s lighting, which can make it hard to work on board. The best solution to old fluorescent lighting is to switch to LED T5 tube lights. The solid-state design renders this T5 tube light resistant to shock, vibration and environmental extremes.
Unlike fluorescents, which have to be replaced frequently and consume large amount of power, the LED T5 tube light reduces maintenance costs and power consumption by operating 10 times longer than fluorescent lights.
Aside from the benefit of energy savings, LED lights are safer for passengers and the environment, because it is mercury-free, emits no infrared or ultraviolet radiation, and does not cause any flickering and buzzing — a perfect solution for bunk bed lighting not only on Navy ships but also on cruise ships.
