T5 fluorescent tubes achieve payback of less than a year

Osram, lighting, T5 fluorescent tube

Osram has added three more fluorescent tubes to its Lumilux T5 range. The T5 High Efficiency Energy Saver and the T5 High Output Energy saver both use 10% less energy for the same light output as conventional HE and HO tubes. The third tube is the 49 W T5 HO Constant. The energy efficiency of the HE and HO tubes can achieve a payback of less than a year.

T5 HE ES tubes are available in 25 and 32 W versions and provide the same light output as 28 and 35 W T5 HE tubes, respectively.

T5 HO ES tubes are available in 45, 50 and 73 W versions with the same light output as the HO 49, 54 and 80 W tubes, respectively.

Both HE and HO tubes can be operated with Osram’s Quicktronics intelligent control gear.

The 49 W T5 Constant offers more choice for applications where the ambient temperature is high. It can also be used for high-bay lighting, cold storage and narrow design luminaires. These lamps have a luminous flux greater than 90% with an ambient temperature from 20 to 80°C and a life of up to 18 000 h.
