Product Monday: A+B Hybrid TLEDs by Espen

Espen Technology’s hybrid Type A+B TLED replacement lamps, an expansion of the company’s UniFlex lamp family, can be powered by an existing fluorescent ballast (plug & play, Type A), as well as be directly wired to line voltage (ballast bypass, Type B).

This provides end-users plug-and-play installation, then an option to run line voltage to the lamps after the fluorescent ballast eventually fails.

These UniFlex TLEDs are offered in linear T8 2′, 3′, and 4′ lengths, as well as U-bent models. Uniflex lamps have double-ended installation (DE), work with dimming ballasts, and are compatible with controls and sensors. The lamps are frosted to prevent glare, with a 325 degree wide beam angle. They operate on 120 or 277 VAC and come with a 5 year warranty.

Initial UniFlex inventory for U-bent lamps are expected in late October, and 2′, 3′, and 4′ inventory by late December 2018.

    I’m skeptical of the claim of 325 degree “beam angle”, especially since photometrics are not provided on their website or cut sheets. Other manufacturers, like Green Creative are also making wild claims using words like “wide distribution angle” or “visible light angle” in order to dupe the unsuspecting customer. And when you check their specs and photometrics, you find out that it’s only a 165d beam angle.
