A. The 3' power whip wires directly to the incoming line voltage: hot & neutral
which bypasses the existing ballast. Then simply plug it into the LED unit and it lights up.
A.No, the lamp holders are not used at all. The LED units magnetize to the top of the fixtures. Using a screw for additional holding power can be done with two different types of clips that are available. No additional kits or costs are involved.
A. 44 1/2" long from end to end - they fit easily between the existing lamp holders-even T5 troffers and T5 high bays can be retrofitted without any additional kits.
A. Yes, since these give off up to 185 lumens per watt (which is the highest lumens per watt of most any LED units on the market) they can easily be de-lamped. The HO AEFDirectConnectLED is up to 179 lumens per watt.
A. Yes, because of the magnets that are on the back of the LED units, you can position them anywhere in the unit. You will not be able to tell that fluorescent lamps have been removed or that the fixture has been de-lamped.
A. Yes, just wire the 3' power whip to the first unit and clip in the jumper whips from one unit to the next up to 240' = 277V and 120' = 120V (including whip length). Perfect for end to end fixtures
A. Yes, connect two 4' units using the 2" connector whip to make an 8'. Many utility companies are giving rebates to AEF where other LED's cannot get rebates.
A. Yes, because the AEFDirectConnectLED® units have such a high lumen per watt package
A. Yes, clip in the jumper whips to connect the units up to 240' (277v) and only wire to the incoming line voltage on the first unit. Simply magnetize the rest of the units to the fixtures
A. Yes, the AEF LED high bay fixture is high lumens per watt and easy to install
A. Absolutely. Because the AEFDirectConnectLED® does not use existing lamp holders and it is shorter (44.5") than all other LED units on the market (48"), they will easily fit in the existing fixture. Just magnetize them to the fixture and center them when you de-lamp. Fast and simple. Mechanical fastening included.
A. Yes, the AEFDirectConnectLED® unit is a universal LED unit.
A. Yes, the Linkable waterproof series of LED fixtures are available and can also be linked together, wiring at the incoming line voltage and then screwing in the jumper whips from one unit to the next.
Linkable Waterproof Tri Proof LED FixtureLink fixtures up to 120' (including whips)
Waterproof Rating is IP67
Rated as "dust tight" and protected against immersion. for 30 minutes at depths 150mm - 1000mm
.vs IP65 rated as "dust tight" and protected against water projected from a nozzle.
.vs IP66 Enclosure - IP rated as "dust tight" and protected against heavy seas or powerful jets of water.
A. YES, that is correct. Our calculations will show how much your air conditioning costs can be reduced.
A. Yes. All of the DirectConnectLED® units are DLC approved for rebates as a "retrofit kit" .vs a "tube" and as a linear ambient luminaire. In many areas, this will allow higher rebates. Check with your utility provider.
A. Your electrical light savings will be reduced between 30-70% (de-lamping would be 70%+). (This will depend on what your existing lighting wattage is and what your new wattage will be)
A. The ROI (Return On Investment) averages about 12-24 months based on the U.S. average current kWh costs. If lights are burning 24/7, the ROI can be less than 12 months. Some of our recent projects, including installation and rebates are coming in less than 6 months.
A. The LED's are ETL certified under UL standards.
A. Yes - You can also replace vapor tight fixtures using the waterproof Tri Proof LED fixtures.
A. No. They do not flicker or hum.
A. Yes, our LED high bay fixture produces up to 179 lumens per watt and can save up to 79% in energy savings.
A. Seven Year manufacturer's warranty which is non-prorated - compare this to other 5 year warranties that require a 10% failure rate before any warranty replacements are given.
A. >50,000 life in a 120 degree environment and >75,000 hours in a 77 degree environment
A. Yes, it this has been proven to be fact and there are many studies and white papers on the internet that discuss the percentages and the money that is saved annually by companies.
