Fluorescent replacement for LED tubes

LED-Light bulb replacement

replacement of old fluorescent tubes

LED-fluorescent tubes are now an environmentally friendly, long-lasting, energy-efficient and safe alternative to fluorescent tubes. Upgrading old fluorescent lamps to LED is easy, simply unscrew the fluorescent tube and replace it with LED-fluorescent tube. You also need to replace the igniter that comes with the LED tube. You can do this yourself by following the product instructions.

A new lighter, or short-circuit, is needed because LEDs work differently from fluorescent tubes. The fluorescent tube contains a gas that is ignited by a burst of electricity. The amount of current is limited by a current limiter, or magnetic choke, built into the luminaire. LED-When replacing the old magnetic choke, the old one can stay in place even though it is no longer needed, but the old igniter must be replaced.

If you want to reduce the power loss of the luminaire and improve fire safety, you should also remove the choke. Removing magnetic ballasts from luminaires can reduce power losses and removing compensation capacitors can improve the power factor. However, this should only be done by a qualified electrician. In the case of two-fluorescent lamps, the change is not as easy, as they are often connected in series and the LEDs do not work properly. The connection should be changed to a parallel connection, but this work should only be done by a professional. If you change the LEDs in such a luminaire, you will notice the problem in that one tube burns brighter than the other. In this case, the most sensible thing to do is to replace the whole luminaire with a new one.

In addition, the latest fluorescent lamps have electronics, such as electronic ignition, with which a normal LED tube will not work. However, there are already electronic ballasts on the market LED-tubes that are also suitable for such luminaires, so care must be taken when choosing a lamp.

LED-The suitability of the tubes for your own lamp, the correct length of the tube, the appropriate luminous intensity and the colour temperature can be checked on the sales packaging of the tubes. Instead of comparing wattages, you should compare the number of lumens, which tells you how much light a lamp produces. An LED of about 800 lumens is equivalent to a 60-watt incandescent bulb. LED-The typical light output from a tube is between 3,000 and 4,000 lumens.

The colour temperature of light is expressed in Kelvin (K). Low Kelvin light is perceived as warm, while high Kelvin light is perceived as cold and bluish. If other light sources are also used in the room, the colour temperature of the LED tubes should be matched to them. In offices and public spaces, a neutral colour temperature of 4000K is most commonly used. In the home, both 3000K warm white and 4000K neutral are commonly used. If you want daylight in your home, choose a 5 000-6 500 kelvin LED.

When the right LED-tube it's time to replace the old fluorescent tube with a new one. The first step is to switch off the lamp and carefully unscrew the fluorescent tube. If the tube has been in use, its surface may be hot, so allow it to cool before handling.

Next, a new LED-The pipe is placed in position and made sure it is tight and straight. If the length of the tube does not match the luminaire, check if the correct length is available or if an adapter is available that is compatible with the luminaire.

The final step is to replace the lighter with a new one LED-to the new lighter supplied with the tube.

Once everything is installed, the lamp is switched back on and the new LED-tube will light up. Check again that the tube is working properly and that the light colour and brightness are as desired.

In summary, therefore, we can say that the modern LED-In summary, replacing modern fluorescent tubes with old fluorescent tubes is quick and easy, as long as you choose the right LED tube and follow the instructions carefully. New LED tubes are environmentally friendly, energy efficient and long-lasting, making them an excellent choice for improving the lighting in your home or workplace.
