These Ballast Bypass LED Tube Lights » are not- compatible with Ballast which means these light works without ballast fixture and if you are hiving old ballast fixture then you can bypass the ballast by directly wiring the line source to the existing tube fixture to work. These tubes come in 4 feet and 8 feet in size and consume 18wattsto 48watts only which makes it Highly energy-efficient.
These Ballast Bypass LED Tube Lights are not only energy-efficient but give you 1800 to 5800lm output and the color temperature of 4000K to 6500K which Illuminates your all indoor lighting not leaving a dark spot and gives you the satisfactory amount of light. These tubes are the best replacement for your Old Fluorescent tube which is highly energy-efficient and consumes 40watts to 120watts which led you to pay high energy bills.
How to Bypass a Ballast in LED Tube Lights?
Turn off the power- Switching “off” the power plug is not always necessary to end the flow of electricity. You first must find the breaker box and find the breaker switch and make sure to turn it off before you get a start.
Cut the Hot and Neutral wire- After switching off the power unscrew the ballast covers and find Hot and a Neutral wire, where Hotwire which usually covered in Black and Red, a Neutral wire is usually a white color wire which completes the circuit back to electrical panel and once you find the Hotwire the Neutral wire will be on the same side. You need to cut both the wires near to the ballast because these are the input wires which transmit the power to the fixture.
Cut the Socket lead wire- These Socket lead wire (mostly are red and blue coloured wire) Which are located on the opposite side of the ballast and connect the cut wire to the wires which are on the opposite side of the ballast which will directly channelize the power to the fixture.
Remove the Ballast- After connecting the wires and creating a circuit you can finally unscrew the circuit through the Ballast, and physically remove.
Connect Input wire with the Output wire- The input Hot and Neutral (black and hot) wire coming from the building or from socket needs to be connected from the Hot and Neutral wire coming from the fixture. Each Hot wire from the building is to be connected to the Hotwire from the fixture and same as in Neutral wire should be connected from the Neutral wire from the fixture.
These Ballast Bypass LED Tube Lights are also UL and DLC Listed and have 50,000 hours life expectancy with a 5 years manufacturer warranty which makes it more reliable to use.
