Aleddra EasiRetrofit G3 LED T8 Tube Shines on Safety and Maintenance Concerns

Many lighting professionals and facility managers have long been puzzled on the question: What would happen if a maintenance crew re-inserts a fluorescent tube into a fixture converted to be used with an LED tube only? The answer is "it depends how the fixture is wired," according to Matthew Maa, Sales and Market Manager at Aleddra, whom performed a live safety demonstration at LightFair 2014 on this issue. Maa explains, "if the user retrofitted the fixture for a single-ended LED tube and therefore converted the fixture to single-ended wiring, then inserting a fluorescent T8 into such fixture will immediately short the bi-pins of the fluorescent tube and thus damage the lamp. At 277V, this instantaneous electrical short may cause the fluorescent tube to explode. We have seen these events occur. In many cases, maintenance crews do not realize that the fixtures have been converted to single-ended wiring LED tubes. The use of single-end power LED tubes for retrofit is a serious safety hazard, and a liability to employers.".
