Designed for simplicity, the Universal T8 tube is compatible with all driver technologies, fitting directly in luminaires operating on electromagnetic ballasts or HF electronic ballasts. The tube also enables mains power connection. This makes even complex retrofits simple, abolishing the hassle and cost of stocking different types of tubes.

As with all Philips’ high quality LED Tubes, the Philips MASTER LEDtube Universal T8 also provides significant energy-saving benefits, using less than half the electricity of the traditional TL-D fluorescents it replaces. This not only ensures the lighting emits less heat – proving a more comfortable working environment – but also generates considerable cost savings with lower maintenance requirements, relamping costs and an extended life of 50,000 hours. These energy and cost saving benefits hold true for all available versions of the tube – across the 1200 and 1500 millimeter models.
