Type A – LED Tube Lamps (TLEDs)
- Linear, compact, or U-bent LED lights
- Directly replace existing fluorescent lamps
- Require AC input voltage
TLED Lamps are designed to convert the AC voltage coming from your fluorescent ballast to DC current. This allows you to simply replace the flourescent lamp with the TLED lamp without having to remove or re-wire the existing AC ballast.
Type B – "Direct Wire" LED Lamps with Internal Drivers
- Downlight or linear lamps
- Feature internal drivers
- Accept AC line voltage
Type B lamps feature a built-in driver that accepts AC line voltage. These lamps replace the fluorescent lamps and the fluorescent ballast to retrofit your existing fixture to LED.
Emergency Solution: Emergency Inverter
Since Type B lamps are wired directly to the line voltage, they require an auxiliary source of line voltage as their emergency solution. IOTA offers several emergency inverter options to deliver line voltage to your LED retrofit fixtures.
Type C – LED Retrofit Kits
- LED tubes or arrays paired to an LED driver
- Directly replace fluorescent lamps and ballast
- Require DC input voltage
LED Retrofit Kits are designed to completely replace the fluorescent technology in your fixture. The driver/lamp combination included in the kit makes use of the fluorescent fixture in isolation.
Emergency Solution: Emergency LED Driver
LED Retrofit Kits require an Emergency LED Driver certified for field installation. IOTA Emergency LED Drivers are UL Listed for field installation, fully compatible with retrofit installations, and offer many wattage and mounting styles.
