About the Lx Linear Tubes
A direct replacement lamp, requiring no re-wiring of the light fixture.
Can also be used without the ballast.
Compatible with electronic and magnetic ballasts.
Smooth, ‘natural’, even light distribution.
Frequent on/off switching does not affect lifetime - instant ON operation.
Eliminate Up To 100% Of The Ballast Wattage
Awaken’s ballast compatible tubes have a unique Ballast Factor Offset (BFO) that reduces the ballast’s power consumption by up to 100%. Other tubes consume at least 3w per tube from the ballast when the tube is installed. This saves 3w, which translates to $1.65 additional savings per tube, every year (based on $0.10/kWh, 15 hrs./day).
50% Longer Lifetime Than Other LED Tubes
Unlike typical LED tubes with a 50,000 hour ‘L70’ lifetime. Awaken LED tubes have a L70 of 75,000 hour. This extends their lifetime a further five years beyond other LED tubes, based on 15 hours of use daily, providing additional savings and cash flow benefits.
No Rewiring Required When Ballast Removed
Awaken’s ballast compatible tubes are uniquely powered at both ends, in both “A” (ballast) and “B” (direct AC) modes. This eliminates the rewiring of the fixture otherwise required when the ballast is removed, which significantly reduces the electrical labor cost.
Save 20% More Wattage Compared To Other LED Tubes
Awaken’s 160 lm/w LED linear tubes save 20% more energy than other LED tubes, that typically offer 133 lm/w. As a result, only 10w instead of 12w is required to achieve the same 1600 lm. This saves 2w, which translates to $1.10 additional savings per tube, every year (based on $0.10/kWh, 15 hrs./day).
Dimming Available For Daylight Harvesting
Optional 0-10v dimming is available to reduce light levels and power consumption when ample ambient lighting is available from either windows or skylights. Dimming a 10w tube by 25% for four hours every day would significantly increase savings by $3.50 every year, and extend the lifetime, at 15 hrs. daily use and $0.10/kWh.
