LED tube lamp suitable for both 12V and 24V DC systems providing effective light output equivalent to multiple fluorescent tubes.
Replace your dull 900mm (36in/3ft) fluorescent light fitting tubes with a very long life and much brighter LED tube. This LED tube lamp is for 12Volt and 24Volt DC systems and is designed and engineered to a marine quality specification, consequently, much brighter than similar looking products on the market.
When considering alternative products, check the lumen output of any 'similar' looking products, often they emit a much lower light output. Our 900mm, 1300 lumen lamps are constructed using ~75 high quality Epistar SMD LEDs. Each LED lamp offers pretty much the effective light output of multiple fluorescent tubes, whist consuming less current than a single fluorescent tube.
These lamps have a fourfold increased service life compared to fluorescent tubes and are completely flicker free in operation. Using much less power they are much more efficient and run much cooler and are silent in operation. The lamp has Boatlamps built in Buck-Boost electronic ‘Constant-Current’ control circuit combining this with high output SMD LEDs gives our tube consistent light output over a wide range of input voltages (10-30V DC).
Low voltage, DC, LED tubes are significantly more expensive to manufacture compared to mains voltage consumer products. Mains voltage tubes generally utilise capacitive voltage dropping devices which are relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of our control electronics.
The light output is UV free and unlike fluorescent lamps will not fade surfaces, furnishing fabrics or attract flying insects.
Retro fitting LED tubes to existing fittings enable the disconnection of the energy wasting and often noisy ballast contained in existing fluorescent fixtures. A simple wiring modification to existing fittings is required. This DIY operation is easily undertaken by most boat owners. Full instructions are issued with the lamp.
This lamp has a two year warranty and should not cause interference to VHF or AIS signals. The lamp is not polarity sensitive and can be connected without risk of damage.
