Neon Led Tube Lights

Following the test of the excellent Led bulbs there is little time, our partner Led and fluorescent sent me new Led products to test.

Of these, a Led tube intended to replace a neon. Still an opportunity to save money, without making a cross on the quality.

Let’s see this closer Led tube…

  1. Presentation

So I could test the professional 10 watt white light LED tube T8, 60cm long:

This tube has exactly the same shape as a tube classic neon, with its two ergos on each end, except that it consists of one or two rows of LEDs according to the model:

The back of the tube consists of an aluminum hull in order to strengthen the whole.

At first glance one might therefore say just buy it and mount it in place of the classic neon. Well no, because the neon has a somewhat special operation requiring a ballast and a starter. We therefore need to adapt a little editing to be able to use this tube led.

  1. Installation

For the test, I bought a neon classic in a large area of DIY, I had to pay a little more than € 10. Once disassembled, you can observe the wiring that uses a ballast and a starter:

In the form of schema, this is what happens:

The Led, it tube does need ballast or starter, it must be supplied with 220V directly. There is therefore need that neon support, to adapt the wiring, which must give it a little:

The lid is closed, and we can then install the Led as any neon tube, sliding and by pivots to block:

This tube is given for the equivalent of a neon 18w, with 990 lumens brightness. Consuming 10w, the economy is less glaring between incandescent light bulbs and Led bulbs we’d seen, but divided still by almost two power consumption. Also note that it turns on instantly, which is not the case of a neon, and it is advertised with a lifetime of 30000 hours, or over ten years if it is used 8 hours per day.

Finally, details should not be overlooked:

  • Il gives off less heat (interesting for a facility in display cases containing food for example)
  • in case of breakage of the façade, the Led tube continues to operate, unlike neon sign that is to throw!
  • Il requires no maintenance: no starter to change ballast that grid.

In a workshop, or to illuminate a work plan, it will do perfectly. For my part I installed it in the garage:

It illuminates perfectly (no), and its white light is very suitable for the tasks performed in the garage (especially DIY).

Sold for € 39 in our partner Led and neon, that is an interesting tube which will allow to save energy for a modest cost. It will just go through a little neon wiring adaptation, something which is not very difficult. Different lengths / powers are available for all uses, up to 1500mm and 25w (equivalent 58w), in daylight or warm light.

Home Automation-Info also presented us there is little time an installation professional in a village hall, where it has replaced all the neon by tubes led from Led and neon:

A very good example of the use of these tubes: 26000 lumens for 300w in total, instead of the original 700. A great economy, so for this type of installation!
