LEDVANCE’s New LEDlescent 360 SELECTTM LED T8UL Type B Lamps for Signage

September 7, 2023

LEDVANCE LEDlescent 360 SELECTTM LED T8UL Type B Lamps for Signage


LEDlescent™ 360 SELECT™ T8 Ballast-Free, Direct Wire lamps are an energy saving alternative, designed to replace traditional fluorescent high output T8 and T12 signage lamps by bypassing the existing ballast. These sign replacement lamps are made of robust plastic and aluminum, with LEDs on both sides that provide 360° omnidirectional light. They are color selectable to allow for application flexibility on site to display the sign material content in the most appropriate correlated color temperature. These lamps also provide even diffuse light distribution without hot spots due to their specifically designed optics, contain no mercury, provide instant light and are engineered to operate directly on 120-277V.

LEDlescent 360 SELECT signage lamps maintain existing fixture’s UL rating as they are UL classified (as a luminaire conversion kit) under UL Standard 1598C. UL 1598C is the standard covering LED retrofits intended for an existing UL rated fixture. Since the user is retrofitting with a UL1598C classified LED kit, the installer simply follows the installation instructions included with the lamps for the modified fixture to retain its UL rating.

These LEDlescent Sign lamps are evaluated to UL 48 / UL 879A Standards and listed in the UL Sign Component Manual (SAM).
