Espen Technology has announced an expansion of its Type B, Double-Ended input (DE), LED tube family to include 5- and 6-foot T8s, as well as T5HO models. Its Flex family of Type B tubes operate directly off of line voltage, utilizing a driver within the tube. This avoids the compatibility concerns of operating TLEDs on existing fluorescent ballasts. Type B also eliminates uncertainties about the remaining operating life of installed fluorescent ballasts. The addition of the double-ended input feature simplifies and reduces labor costs during installation.
The 5- and 6-foot T8 Type B DE lamps are offered in both Slimline (Fa8 base) and HO/VHO (R17d base) configurations. The lamps have an ArmorCoat shatterproof coating on a frosted glass tube to optimize light output, thermal management, a 325 degree wide beam angle, while preventing glare. These 5- and 6-foot lamps are suitable for damp and dry locations and integrate thermal fuse protection. They’re UL listed with a five year warranty.
The T5HO Type B DE lamps have a frosted real glass tube to eliminate glare, a 240 degree wide beam angle, and optimal light output and heat dissipation. These lamps are DLC listed to qualify for utility rebates, along with UL damp location listing, and a five year warranty.
