At the LightShow East in Washington DC, Oct. 3-4, Aleddra’s 1-ft LED T8 sample tube quickly became one of the hottest giveaways. This sample T8 with Double Safety Switch (DSS) surprised tradeshow attendees with its intuitive safety design that protects the installer from electrical shock and can be used with both shunted and non-shunted tombstones. The DSS LED tube reduces installation cost by as much as 50-70%, compared to a single-ended LED T8 when retrofitting an existing fluorescent fixture. Attendees appreciated the flex ability of the Aleddra’s design that incorporated the compatibility of the LED T8 to be used with any tombstone. Simply bypassing the ballast and not having to re-wire completely the fixture is truly an “Aleddra Advantage” for the contractor.
Aleddra’s presence at the tradeshow also attracted many OEM buyers, who are now looking more closely at LED T8’s as a solution for their fixture offering. Several of the fixture manufacturers from the East Coast were impressed with the light output of the fixtures on display and all commented that it was great to see a manufacturer working closely with UL/ETL and producing a quality lamp with 3rd party testing. As one fixture manufacturer put it, combining Aleddra’s UL1598C classified LED T8 with its own UL listed troffer is what the end-user is looking for since such LED lighting solution is market ready for immediate release. His company doesn’t have to worry about the UL status uncertainty beyond February 2013 (the mandatory effective date for the new UL 1598C standard) for those LED lamps that are yet to be UL1598C classified. He also likes that Aleddra ED T8 comes with 5-year warranty and rated at 50,000 hours, yielding significant saving on re-lamping, especially for high-bay lighting where lamp replacement cost is high.
Aleddra’s LED T8 tubes are available in 2-ft, 3-ft, 4-ft and 5-ft lengths, and in Kelvin temperatures of 3000K, 4100K, 5000K, and 6000K, available in 110V or 277V.
