Is any retrofitting required for T8 LED Grow Light Tube installation?
I want to use the PhotonTube™ T8 LED Grow Light Tube in a fluorescent fixture. Is any retrofitting required, or do I merely use this bulb as a replacement without re-wiring/ballast changes?
Our T8 LED tube lights can fit into all fluorescent fixtures that are 4 ft in length. So, if you can confirm that your existing fluorescent fixture is 4 ft in length, we can be quite certain that our T8 LED tube lights will fit!
In terms of the electrical connections, you will want to check if the fluorescent fixture has a ballast inside. If the fluorescent fixture contains a fluorescent ballast, you will want to check that it is listed on our list of fluorescent ballasts, which can be found at the link below:
If the fluorescent ballast is not listed, you will want to remove or bypass the ballast from the fixture.
