In order to replace traditional fluorescent tubes, Aura Light has introduced an energy-efficient, easy-install LED light source. The OptiT8 is one of the latest additions to Aura Light’s diverse range of products that offer both light quality and energy savings.
Designed to be a quick solution to reduce costs of existing luminaire installations, the OptiT8 is a retrofit solution to replace T8 fluorescent tubes operated by magnetic ballasts. This allows facility managers to safely upgrade the existing lighting scheme to LED technology with minimal effort and no expensive installation costs.
With a high output of 4000 lumens and efficacy of up to 160 lumens per watt, Aura Light has designed the OptiT8 to deliver a high quality of light to improve the light levels within the room. It is also a particularly versatile option and can be used for applications in offices, supermarkets, retail, signs and cold refrigerated areas, or anywhere where fluorescent lighting is currently being used. With excellent thermal and electrical design features, all applications will benefit from a full 50,000 hour system lifetime, supported by a five year guarantee, which eliminates all frequent maintenance or replacement costs. The tubes are also equipped with 90° rotatable end caps so users can fine-tune the direction of light once it is installed.
Aura Light has used the latest LED technology to ensure the OptiT8 achieves its maximum performance and capabilities. The tube incorporates a reliable LED engine which helps to promote the long life as well as an integrated driver and heat sink which help to maintain the quality of light throughout the lifetime.
The OptiT8 tubes are available in 1,200 and 1,500mm lengths and a range of colour temperatures, including 3,000, 4,100 and 5,000K with a CRI of more than 80. This range of colour temperatures allows users to match their new light source to the desired appearance, including matching the same colour temperature as the previous fluorescent tubes whilst generating significant energy savings.
