Over 180 Lumens/Watt Efficacy!
The HiLumz 44″ linear strip retrofit kit for T8 and T12 fluorescent tube replacement is a powerhouse. Over 180 lumens per watt of light output at 100% efficiency at the LED strip level. What does this mean? This is the method used by many LED companies to demonstrate the raw power of an LED module. There is no loss taken into account for power loss due to the driver nor light loss due to a lens or diffuser panel. This is the highest efficacy level that the LED module can obtain. This is a legitimate measurement to help determine how the module will perform in an installation.
The S44-40 has been tested in a DLC defined, 2×4 fluorescent fixture with a standard diffuser. Even in this fixture, the S44-40 still exceeds DLC V4.2 Premium level of 130 lumens/watt.
Which retrofit method is best replacing fluorescent tubes? A tube with built-in driver, the same with compatibility with existing fluorescent ballasts or a true retrofit with external driver designed to withstand heat and not add heat to the LEDs? Read what the University of California Davis has to say.
