Aurora’s Emergency T8 LED Tubes Remove Risk of Electrical Shock

Aurora’s direct-replacement emergency T8 LED tubes can be safely retrofitted without the risk of electric shock when being inserted or removed from the luminaire. Cost effective, they are perfect for use inaccessible areas and where low maintenance is required.

Unlike fluorescent lamps which unnecessarily output 360o light, Aurora’s LED lamps produce light from 130o ensuring all produced light is utilised as opposed to being directed back into the fitting as with standard fluorescent tubes. Rotatable end caps also allow the lamp to be directed towards where the light is required. (See diagram)

Available in all T8 standard lamp lengths delivering up to 95lm/W, the tubes carry a 5 year guarantee and offer a lamp life of 50,000 hours, to 70% lumen maintenance. Supplied with frosted diffuser, colour temperatures of 4000K and 6500K are available as well as an emergency option.

To retrofit, simply remove the existing fluorescent starter switch and replace the supplied LED lamp starter with AU-T8STR LED starter. Solid pins prevent breakage during installation. For maximum energy saving, also disconnect the magnetic ballast.

RoHS approved and tested in accordance with IEC 62471 for the photobiological safety of lamps, tubes are flicker free. Each delivers an average of 80 lumens per Watt and 70% lumen maintenance to 50,000 hours.
