Installation guide - 2 Foot (600mm) LED Tube

Magnetic ballast fittings. These are the most common fitting type. Simply replace the tube and starter (supplied) and you're done! Magnetic ballast fittings are identifiable by the fact they have starters present.

Electronic ballast fittings - These units will require an electrician to 'wire out' the existing ballast. Fittings without starters that come on instantly are generally electronic ballast.

A direct replacement with less lumens?

Lumens is a measure of total light output. It is true that the Philips LED tube produces less lumens than a modern T8 fluorescent tube.

However, regular T8 tubes release their light in all directions (360˚). Much of this light is lost in the fitting and to unused parts of the room.

The LED Tube only directs its light output downward, where it is actually needed. It has a beam angle of about 140˚ so it still spreads light throughout the room, but without losing any light to the fixture or ceiling.
