Ushio America Introduces the Next Generation of Direct Replacement LED T8 Lamps

Cypress, CA, March 10, 2016 --( Ushio America, a leader in the specialty and general lighting marketplaces, announced the launch of its Ubiquity™ 2 direct replacement LED T8 lamps. These lamps offer an easy and safe energy-saving retrofit solution for F32T8 fluorescent lamps on most instant-start and programmed start electronic ballasts.

With Ubiquity 2 LED tubes there’s no need to rewire fixtures or disconnect ballasts. Just replace the existing fluorescent tube with the Ubiquity 2 LED tube for instant energy savings. It’s easy and energy efficient. It’s also a safe solution. By not tampering with the fixture wiring or bypassing the ballast the original UL Listing on every fixture is preserved.

These DLC qualified lamps are available in 2 different wattages, 15W and 18W, and have the form, fit and function of traditional T8 fluorescent lamps.
The Ubiquity 2 LED T8 lamps are made with a shatterproof glass tube. Glass provides very good thermal conductivity and transparence. The tube glass is frosted to prevent glare and allow the 240 degree wide beam angle (325 degree visible light area) to create a quality lighted environment. Ubiquity 2 LED T8 lamps are available in 3500K, 4000K and 5000K color temperatures.

Ushio is proud to stand behind these 50,000 hour rated life LED lamps with a 5-year warranty.
