Optimizing T5 lamps demands a thorough understanding of lighting and phosphor technology. Current TruLumen high output T5 lamps were designed to deliver the maximum amount of lumens from the shortest possible length. The result is an extremely bright lamp that can produce nearly twice the lumen output of a standard T8 fluorescent lamp in similar length.
Length (including pins): 16 1/2”
The Ultimate Spectrum
TruLumen T5HO lamps feature remarkable color consistency and rendition. This consistency is essential for simulating the wavelengths of natural light found on living reefs. Our proprietary blend of Nichia Phosphors creates colors that replicate those found in the natural aquatic environments. Available in Daylight 10,000k & 6,7000k and Actinic Blue 460nm & 420nm wavelengths.
A system using TruLumen high output T5 lamps offers a tremendous amount of lumens-per-watt (LPW). When coupled with a Current T5HO electronic driving system, TruLumen T5HO lamps can deliver anywhere from 95 LPW up to 105 LPW. By pairing a TruLumen T5HO lamp with a Current electronic ballast, you can create a lighting solution that will deliver unbeatable performance.
