As an environmentally concerned person, I understand the importance of energy saving and emission reduction. LED tubes are one of the modern lighting technologies that can provide you with better lighting effects, longer life and lower energy consumption.
In this article, I will show you how to replace fluorescent tubes and replace them with LED tubes.
Understanding the types of LED tubes
Before choosing LED tubes, we need to understand the different types of LED tubes. Currently there are two main types of LED tubes on the market: T8 type and T5 type.
T8 type LED tubes have a diameter of 26 mm and a length of 1200 mm or 1500 mm;
T5 type LED tubes have a diameter of 16 mm and a length of 300 mm, 550 mm or 1150 mm.
So before you buy a led tube, we need to measure the length and diameter of the lamp and make sure that the LED lamp you choose matches your existing fluorescent tube.
Determine if you need to replace the driver of the lamp
LED tubes require a special power driver, so you may need to replace the lamp driver when replacing your fluorescent tubes. If your fluorescent tubes are electronic, then you can replace them with electronic LED tubes.
However, if your fluorescent tubes are magnetic, then you will need to replace the driver with an electronic one. Therefore, to ensure that you are able to properly select your LED tubes and replace the lamp drivers, we recommend that you consult a professional lighting engineer or asking for the led light suppliers.
Disconnect the power and remove the fluorescent tube
Before starting to install the LED tubes, we need to disconnect the power and wait for the fluorescent tubes to cool down. Then, you can press the ends of the fluorescent tube, gently twist and pull the tube down. Please note that there may be some locking clips on the ends of the fluorescent tube and you will need to press them carefully to remove the fluorescent tube properly.
Installing the LED tube
After removing the fluorescent tube, we can insert the LED tube into the lamp holder. Make sure the LED tubes are properly aligned and press down until the tubes are secured in place. During the installation process, please be careful not to touch the electrodes of the LED tubes to avoid electric shock.
Turn on the power and test the LED lamp
After installing the LED lamp, reconnect the power supply and turn on the lamp switch. Make sure the LED lamp is working properly and providing proper lighting effect. If the LED lamp does not light up, check that the lamp is properly installed and make sure the driver is compatible with the lamp. If you still can’t solve the problem, consult a professional lighting engineer or contact the manufacturer’s customer service.
To ensure that you are able to install and use the LED lamp correctly, we recommend that you choose a professional lighting engineer or the manufacturer’s customer service for consultation. We can also provide you with relevant technical support and services to help you achieve greener and more efficient lighting solutions. Please feel free to contact us if you need led lighting solutions.
1. How is a Tubelight connected?
The live wire is connected to the one terminal of the switch. From another terminal of the switch the wire is carried out up to tube light set up and connected to port 1. One terminal of choke or ballast is connected to port 1 and another terminal is connected to pin 1 of terminal 1.
2. What is the difference between LED light and Tubelight?
An LED light produces 90% more efficient light as compared to incandescent bulbs and Compact Fluorescent Lighting (CFL) tube lights. Furthermore, unlike bulbs and CFLs, LEDs do not burn out.
3. What are the parts of a tube light fitting?
A fluorescent fixture has three main parts — the bulb, ballast, and starter.
4. How do you start a tube light?
When you turn on a fluorescent tube, the starter is a closed switch. The filaments at the ends of the tube are heated by electricity, and they create a cloud of electrons inside the tube. The fluorescent starter is a time-delay switch that opens after a second or two.
5. Where should a Tubelight be in a room?
According to Vastu, lighting fixtures like bulbs and tube lights should be installed on the east or north wall of the room to invite the flow of energy.
6. Do LED lights plug into the wall?
LED Power Supply Options:
Plug-in Adapter – Plug straight into your wall to power your LED strip lights. Hardwire Power Supplies – Directly wire between your line voltage wiring and your LED Strips.
7. How does LED tube light work?
How Do LED Bulbs Work? An LED bulb produces light by passing the electric current through a semiconducting material—the diode—which then emits photons (light) through the principle of electroluminescence.
8. What is the best way to hang LED lights on the wall?
You can use extra adhesive tape, LED mounting clips, or a mounting track. These are the best ways to hang the strips if the adhesive is just not enough.
9. Which Tubelight is better?
LED Light are around 90% more efficient than other light options. They have a significantly longer life span and illuminate way brighter than Fluorescent or Incandescent lights. 1. The lifespan of an LED tube light is around 10 years.
10. Which Tubelight is better for eyes?
Fluorescent light bulbs tend to emit UV radiation and can cause the most damage to your eyes, more so than blue light produced by LED light bulbs. LED lights do not produce any UV rays, and as they come in a variety of colours, they can also produce warm light (as mentioned above).
