Kobi LED T8 6" gap ballast bypass 5000K bright white 15 watt non-dimmable T8 U-Bent lamps are low-maintenance and energy efficient alternatives for traditional T12 andT8 U-bent fluorescent lamps. They are designed for 120-277V single ended power from mains and have a dedicated internal driver. 

The ballast must be bypassed when present. Must be used with non-shunted lamp holders only.  Turn off power to the fixture before bypassing the ballast and installing the LED U-Bent lamps.

  • Non-Dimmable. Do not use with dimming ballasts
  • Direct replacement for a T12 and T8 U-bent fluorescent
  • Perfect for applications with frequent "on/off" switching cycles, and buildings that desire to be mercury free
  • Instant on, no flicker or buzz
  • Emits virtually no UV rays or IR
  • Suitable for dry locations only
  • Glass-free for use in food areas and refrigerated food displays

Energy Used

A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
15 Watts

Fluorescent Equivalent

The total wattage of fluorescent lamps in a fixture that this fixture replaces.
 
Fluorescent Equivalent
32

Volts

A measure of "electrical pressure" between two points. The voltage specification of an incandescent lamp is the electrical "pressure" required to drive it at its designed point. The "voltage" of a ballast (e.g. 120 V) refers to the line voltage coming from the power source and is connected to the ballast.
 
Volts
120-277

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
 
Base
Medium Bipin

Bulb Shape

The description of the general appearance of a lamp/bulb consists of a letter(s) followed by a number. The letter indicates the shape of the bulb and the number relates to the diameter of the bulb in eighths of an inch. For example, a common household bulb is the A-19. The bulb is "A" shape and the diameter would be nineteen 8ths of an inch, or 2 3/8".
 
Bulb Shape
T-8 U-Bent

Bulb Color

The color of the light produced by a bulb
 
Bulb Color
Bright White

CRI

Color Rendering Index is an international system used to rate a lamp's ability to render object colors. The higher the CRI (based upon a 0-100 scale) the richer and more accurately colors generally appear. CRI differences among lamps are not usually visible to the eye unless the difference is more than 3-5 points.
 
CRI
80

Color Temperature (Kelvin)

An expression of the hue of the light emitted, measured in degrees Kelvin. Usually expressed by a four digit number followed by (k), such as 2700k. Higher temperatures indicate whiter, "cooler" colors, while lower temperatures indicate yellower, "warmer" colors. Some common Kelvin temperature benchmarks are 2700k (warm white), 3500k (neutral white), 4100k (cool white), 5000k (bright white), and 6500k (daylight).
 
Color Temperature (Kelvin)
5000

Brightness (Lumens)

A rating of the initial light output of a bulb, rated after 100 hrs of operation. Lumens are a measure of how much light falls on one square foot of area, one foot away from the light source.
 
Brightness (Lumens)
1800

Bulb Finish

The surface finish of a bulb, which may affect the quality of the light emitted.
 
Bulb Finish
Opaque

Bulb Technology

The technology implemented by the bulb, e.g. incandescent, halogen, LED
 
Bulb Technology
LED

Average Rated Life (hr)

A measurement of the average length of time, between first use and the point when 50% of the lamps tested have stopped functioning, , using an operating cycle of 3 hours on, 20 minutes off.
 
Average Rated Life (hr)
50000

Operating Temperature (°F)

The ambient temperature in which the product can safely operate.
 
Operating Temperature (°F)
-4 to 113

Beam Angle (°)

The width of a light beam, expressed in degrees. The beam angle is often part of the ordering code for reflector lamps. For example, a 50PAR30/HIR/NFL25 is a 50-watt PAR30 narrow flood lamp with a beam angle of 25 degrees.
 
Beam Angle (°)
160

Bulb Power Type

Defines how a lamp is powered, whether it needs a ballast or not, or can use either
 
Bulb Power Type
Ballast Bypass

Length (in)

Also referred to as "Maximum Overall Length" (MOL). For light bulbs, it measures the length of a light bulb, from the top of the bulb to the bottom of the base or pins and is typically expressed in inches. For light fixtures and ballasts, it applies to the total horizontal length of the item.
 
Length (in)
22.5

Diameter (in)

Light bulbs: a measurement of a bulb's width taken at the widest point of the bulb. Fixtures: the measurement across the widest point of a circular fixture.
 
Diameter (in)
