How do I label fluorescent fixtures converted to LED?

1

I just finished converting all 12 of the fluorescent fixtures to dual use. I got the LED ribbons and the connectors from Amazon, (see link above for the part number if you need it).

I got 12 spst push button switches and a roll of 18 gauge wire from Radio Shack and a couple of rolls of 3M tape from Walmart.

Three rolls of LED ribbon and three packs of connectors cost about $77.00. The rest of the parts, switches, wire and 3M tape cost about $100.00.

The entire project was under $200 for 12 fixtures or about $16 each. If I had used the LED tubes it would have cost about $80 per fixture.

Six screws and the fixture came down, I cut the two wires and later used wire nuts to reconnect when reinstalling the fixture.

I drilled holes in the other end of the fixture from the fluorescent switch and added a seperate switch for the two LED ribbons. The LED's are on a seperate switch so that I can choose from 4 options. Off, just the LED's, (boondocking or...

My husband David and I have been switching all of our home’s lamps to LEDs. For lighting efficiency, you can’t beat ’em. Most replacements were straightforward—unscrew the old compact fluorescent bulb from the light socket and screw in a new LED. But replacing our 32-watt T-8 linear fluorescent bulbs with 20-watt LEDs required some tinkering.

The LED bulbs will physically fit into the 4-foot-long fluorescent fixtures. However, the ballasts will ruin new straight-LED bulbs. Some LED bulb manufacturers offer bulbs that can work with the ballast in place, but they are less efficient and more expensive. (For more pros and cons on replacing fluorescent tubes with LEDs, see bit.ly/tubereplacement.)

Here are the steps we took to replace our old T-8 linear fluorescent bulbs in an older kitchen fixture:

Step 1: Be Safe

Turn off the electricity. The “lock-out, tag-out” approach is safest—turn off the breaker that supplies power to that fixture. Tape a note over...

Fluorescent Fixtures and Ballasts

Fluorescent Fixtures

The typical fixture consists of: Lamp holder - the most common is designed for the straight bipin base bulb. The 12, 15, 24, and 48 inch straight fixtures are common in household and office use. The 4 foot (48") type is probably the most widely used size. U shaped, circular (Circline(tm).) and other specialty tubes are also available.Ballast(s) - these are available for either 1 or 2 lamps. Fixtures with 4 lamps usually have two ballasts. See the sections below on ballasts. The ballast performs two functions: current limiting and providing the starting kick to ionize the gas in the fluorescent tube(s).Switch - on/off control unless connected directly to building wiring in which case there will be a switch or relay elsewhere. The power switch may have a momentary 'start' position if there is no starter and the ballast does not provide this function.Starter (preheat...

Efficient & Effective Kitchen Lighting | Homeowner Guide | Kitchen Remodeling in Lincoln, Nebraska There’s a critical missing element in most American kitchens, and it’s not a $10,000 range or a stainless steel French door refrigerator. No, it’s simply good lighting. Most kitchens not only do not have enough lighting, they have the wrong kind of lighting.

Electrical Discharge (Arc) Lamps


Electrical discharge lamps create light by jumping a spark across two electrodes surrounded by inert gas.

The most common household incarnation of this type of lamp is the tubular fluorescent lamp found in just about all workshops, garages and basements.

Other types of electrical discharge lamps include sodium and mercury vapor lamps — used only for street lights and other outdoor applications and xenon-arc lamps used in special applications such as movie projectors, search lights and headlights for luxury cars. These collectively are...

Step 2

VOLTAGE 12V vs 120V - Pool lights are designed to operate with 12V or 120V. In some areas of the country the local code requires a low voltage 12V light while in other areas it is fine to use a 120V light. Before installing a light, find out what your local code require. If you install a 12V light you will need to install a transformer to convert the 120V house voltage to 12V. If you are replacing an existing light and do not know your voltage you may try the following techniques to find this information: 1.) Look on the face of the light bulb for the voltage rating. 2.) Look to see if you have a transformer wired before the light. If you have transformer then you have a 12V light. 3.) Check the back of the light housing where the cord connects into the light, there will be a label specification of your light. The brightness of a 12V and 120V will be the same. Some manufactures do not recommend using a 12V light if the cord of the light is going...
