Product Description

The Parmida LED Technologies™ 4FT LED Direct Wire Type B T8 tube can be installed by a simple bypass of the ballast. This tube can be installed with a single-ended or dual-ended connection and it can install directly into your fixture’s original shunted sockets (tombstones), eliminating the need to retrofit your fixture with non-shunted sockets. This tube is constructed with a shatterproof film sleeve to protect its glass housing, making it suitable for use in applications that require shatterproof lighting.

Bypassing the ballast during initial tube replacement will save you both time and money as ballasts inevitably fail over time and will require replacement. Ballasts also consume electrical power and by bypassing them you will save even more on your energy bill. UL-Listed for installation with either a single or dual-ended connection.

    Switched our entire office.

    Fantastic quality with no flicker and looks so much better compared to the old T-8's we replaced. Simple to install bypassing the ballast. Several were wired different but the flexibility of these LED tubes allows for single or double wired tombstones. We will buy more when we do our warehouse.

    Worked so well I bought a second box,

    I am using these to change over all my 4 foot fluorescent tubes to led. By bypassing the ballast , I don't have to worry about what model/type ballast there is in the fixture and can use this bulb universally. More light less electricity, its a win win!

    Quality of product

    The bypass ballast means bypass ballast.The brightness is great, a lot better than my F40T12. The energy efficiency also, went from 40 watts to 18 watts.
