Types of Lights:
Ballast Compatible: These bulbs / tubes are considered the plug-and-play that can be put into an existing ballast in the fixture. These are used mainly to replace fluorescent lights current in the market. The advantage to this technology is that the instillation is very simple, just install the tubes. However, this product uses more energy than a direct wire bulb or tube.
Direct Wire: These bulbs / tubes typically require an electrician to come and install the lights because it requires removal, or bypass of the ballast fixture. However, it is the most energy efficient retrofit due to the direct wire of input voltage.
Rest assured - When you work with Greenway Industries, you will find the right LED lighting products to solve your specific needs.
Problem: Type B bulbs / tubes do not work with existing ballasts and therefore can be quite costly for the consumer to rewire the fixture. Type A bulbs / tubes however do work with "instant start" ballasts and MAYBE some "rapid start" ballasts. However, in either case, should the ballast fail it must be replaced, even if the bulb / tube itself is still good.
Solution: ALSET has patent protection on the innovative technology that we call "OptiFit" bulbs / tubes. These bulbs / tubes are able to fit into any existing fixture. It can work with Magnetic as well as Electronic Ballasts while also working to bypass the ballast entirely. What does this mean? Should the ballast fail, the bulb / tube will continue to work.
