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.
Easy installation for any fitting with a starter.
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 Osram 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What other options and sizes are available?
You may also require "full length" 4 foot LED tubes, or the longer 5 foot LED tubes. If you are upgrading your office lighting we'd recommend that you also consider these Philips LED troffer lights designed for t-bar suspended ceilings.
Which is better: 6500K or 4000K?
One colour temperature is not really "better" than the other. Generally 6500K is a "whiter" light and is perceived to be slightly brighter. If you want these LED tubes to look the same as the fluro tubes you are replacing, look for '840' or '865' on your existing tubes. '840' is 4000K and '865' is 6500K.
