The LED LinearBar is the ideal LED lighting solution to indoor and outdoor sign cabinets for new construction and retrofit. They come with 11 different lengths from 2 ft to 10ft. The length matches the fluorescent T12 high output so that there is no need for cutting or reconnecting. The mounting brackets on both ends make the installation fast and simple. The single and double sided LED LinearBar make the sign cabinets brighter and consume much less energy than fluorescent T12 tubes.These bulbs require a 12v power supply to convert fluorescent bulb voltage to LED 12v power. There are a number of manufacturers of 12v LED bulbs for replacing fluorescent lamps. These low-voltage bulbs do not require the wiring to be run inside conduit or wire protecting channel making them easy to retrofit into existing cabinets
Another type of LED bulb works with any T12/HO fluorescent light fixtures and requires no ballast for operation. The polycarbonate lens diffuses the light and the aluminum housing serves as a heat sink and provides rigidity and strength for this LED bulb. These LED light tubes can be plugged directly into fluorescent light fixtures with magnetic ballasts, which makes them an ideal retrofit for older T12 fluorescent lights with magnetic ballasts.
In fluorescent light fixtures with electronic ballasts, you bypass the ballast and wire the power directly to one or both ends of the LED tube depending on the type of lamp purchased. This makes it an ideal upgrade for 4 foot fixtures with failed ballasts. These LED fluorescent bulbs run directly off any voltage ranging from 110 volts to 277 volts AC.
