Advantage and disadvantage of T5 lamp
T5 tube was first appeared in 1995, which is the most power saving lamp in commercially produced tubes. And T8 and T9 tubes are incompatible, you must spend money to buy special lamps, this is one of the obstacles of its popularity. The glass, phosphor and mercury of T5 tube lamps due to the relatively small diameter are saving than traditional T8, T9, and the power-saving effect is better than today's traditional bulbs, energy saving bulbs, and lower priced LED, we can say it is the most energy efficient and most environmentally friendly tube. The only shortcoming is the high price and yield is less than the already mature T8 and T9 lamps, but in the long run, the T5 lamp is the one of the most environmentally friendly and most economical lamps.
Structure introduction of T5 tube lamps
Most of the T5 tube lamps use electronic ballast (electronic ballasts), this is the most energy efficient lighting, but there are still a handful of products using traditional ballast (Magnetic Ballast), this class products consume more power and easy to produce flashes, we should pay special attention at the time of purchase. Compared to T8, T9 lamps, in terms of the office environment, T8 unit is used in Japan, if we can further use the T5 specification, the power consumption of the led emergency module lighting equipment in the office environment can be further reduced to 60%. T5 16 mm in diameter have a service life of 20,000 hours, equipped with a dedicated converter circuit, the luminous efficiency can be up to 100 lumens per watt (lm), service life may reach 60,000 hours in the future.
If classified according diameter, the tube can be divided into T2, T3.5, T4, T5, T6, T8, T9, T10, T12 and other specifications, the so-called T5 is fluorescent tube which is 5/8 inch in diameter (approximately 16 mm), diameter of T8 is 1 inch (about 25 mm); T9 is the fluorescent tube whose diameter is 9/8 inches (about 29 mm). The mainstream of the world's is T5, T6 and T8, only 95% market share in Taiwan is T9 lamps.
T5 lights can replace T8 fluorescent
In theory, T8 is brighter than T5, the larger the diameter, the brightness will be higher. At present, nearly 80% fluorescent in China are still T8; there are almost T8 lamps in supermarkets, hospitals, factories, assembly line office centers, schools. With the technological development, technology is in the update, now T5 lights can replace T8 fluorescent produced by traditional t8 led tube manufacturer, the illumination, life and stability are far beyond the T8 fluorescent lamps. The most important factor is energy saving, the proportion of 28 and 36 +9 is obvious, the businesses benefit and the country saves energy. But the models blow T4 cannot replace the T8 brightness, which
