Opple Universal T8 (press release)


OPPLE Lighting is set to shake-up the light tube industry at its 20th anniversary with the introduction of a ground breaking LED tube ("OneT8Led"), which will accelerate global replacement of fluorescent linear lighting by LED.

SHANGHAI/BEST, March 13th 2016 – Today OPPLE Lighting introduces the ground breaking universal LED tube ("OneT8Led") which operates safely on both magnetic and electronic gear. This introduction is part of OPPLE Lighting’s 20th anniversary and follows the signing of a technical cooperation agreement (TCA) in October 2015 between OPPLE and Seaborough.

The OneT8Led product is shown for the first time at the OPPLE booth (Hall 6.2 c90), dedicated to OPPLE Lighting’s 20th anniversary, at the Lighting & Building Fair in Frankfurt.

Jeroen Janssen, MD of OPPLE Lighting Europe comments: "We are thrilled to introduce the worlds’ first universal LED T8 tube. This product will accelerate the replacement of fluorescent tubes by energy saving, long life, environmental friendly LED tubes, as installation is hassle free and easily retrofit. It shows OPPLE Lighting’s commitment to bring good quality, affordable LED lighting for everyone."

The OPPLE OneT8Led is based on technology developed by Seaborough and OPPLE and is a combination of hardware and software incorporated into a retrofit LED tube. The OPPLE OneT8Led is compatible with all types of magnetic and electronic ballasts and is cost effective. The energy saving, long life, environmental friendly, OneT8Led allows for safe and inexpensive retrofitting any fluorescent sockets with ballast. This demonstrates OPPLE’s commitment to deliver affordable, customer friendly, LED lighting to its partners and end-users.

Further details can be found at the OPPLE Lighting booth c90 in Hall 6.2.
