    Retrofit TLED solutions


    Some TLED retrofit lamps have internal drivers that can accept AC input through the original fluorescent ballast or through connection to line voltage.

     

    These TLED replacement lamps have internal drivers that convert AC to DC in order to power the LED array. When emergency lighting is required in these fixtures, an emergency ballast or emergency inverter with AC output may be used. See types A and B for more information.

     

    If the TLED replacement lamps do not have internal drivers, an AC LED driver with DC output must be used to replace the fluorescent ballast. Likewise, an emergency driver that provides DC output must be used to drive the TLED lamps when normal power fails. See Type C for more information.

     

    Certified electricians or qualified contractors should be used to convert LED retrofit fixtures into emergency lighting fixtures.

    Type A


    TLED replacement lamps powered by the original fluorescent ballast and lamp sockets. The select TLED tubes have internal drivers to convert AC input to DC for the LED array.

     

    Type A emergency application uses a fluorescent emergency ballast with high-frequency AC output to power the TLED lamps during normal AC power failures.

    TLED type A

    Type B


    The original fluorescent ballast is removed, and the TLED lamps are connected to line voltage. The TLED tubes have internal drivers to accept AC input.

     

    Type B emergency application uses an auxiliary emergency inverter with battery-powered AC output. Lighting controls, such as switches or dimmers, are unaffected by the inverter.

    TLED type B

    Type C


    The original fluorescent ballast is replaced with an AC LED driver with DC output. The TLED tubes do not have internal drivers.
