What is a toggled LED bulb?

TOGGLED LED lights are designed to replace T8 and T12 fluorescent tubes. They eliminate ballast systems, reduce facility lighting costs, enhance the quality of light and are mercury free. Installation requires basic re-wiring around ballast systems to non-shunted lamp holders.

LED technology does not require a ballast to regulate the amount of energy flowing to the lights. Additionally, removing the ballast will reduce energy usage and result in even great cost-savings as ballasts continue to draw more power than necessary.

Also Know, can I replace fluorescent tubes with LED? Yes, you can replace fluorescent tubes with LED tubes or LED integrated fixtures. If you aren’t ready to replace the fluorescent fixture and just want to replace the bulbs, you can use plug-and-play, direct wire, or hybrid LED tubes.

Also, how do you bypass a LED light ballast?

Cut the socket lead wires. The socket lead wires (most likely red and blue-colored wires) are located on the other side of the ballast and connect to wires going out of the ballast to the sockets (which should be non-shunted sockets for T8 LEDs). These output wires provide the power to the lamps.

Are t8 and t12 sockets the same?

T12 primarily run off a magnetic ballasts and T8 bulbs operate on electronic ballasts. But most people have them operating on a magnetic ballast. Even though the fluorescent light socket is exactly the same for both of them, they cannot operate on the same ballast.

Can you bypass a ballast?

Ballast-bypass, line voltage, or direct wire linear LED (UL type B) Bypass the ballast linear LEDs – also known as line voltage or direct-wire linear LEDs – work straight off the line voltage flowing directly to the sockets, requiring you to remove the original fluorescent ballast.

Can you put LED bulbs in regular fixtures?

Unfortunately, due to the heat entrapment of enclosed fixtures, not all LED light bulbs can be used. Or perhaps it is better to say that they should not be used. It may still be possible to use your regular LED bulb in the enclosed fixture, but with a shortened life span and the potential for premature dimming.

Can you use LED lights in a fluorescent fixture?

In short, YES! New linear LED tube bulbs are simple plug and play and ballast compatible. You will simply need to remove your fluorescent bulb and plug in your LED replacement. Read on for more info to support your decision to replace your linear fluorescent light bulbs with tube LEDs.

How do I know if a ballast is bad?

If your fluorescent lighting is displaying any of the signs below, it could be a symptom of a bad ballast: Flickering. Buzzing. Delayed start. Low output. Inconsistent lighting levels. Switch to an electronic ballast, keep lamp. Switch to an electronic ballast, switch to a T8 fluorescent.

What is a plug and play LED bulb?

A plug and play LED is a fixture where you can install LED bulbs to what was once a fluorescent bulb. This is an easy solution and requires minimal effort on your part. Since it works with the existing ballast, there is no need for rewiring or ballast removal. This option can also be called direct fit.
