Are these for led bulbs?

We just ordered these ballasts for our old fixtures to use with led bulbs.
Asked by: Deborah
LED replacement tubes for fluorescent bulbs come in 2 varieties: self- ballasted (which do not use the fixture's ballast, which must be bypassed, and the sockets, known as tombstones, which must be spliced and direct wired from the 125 volt input line); and those which use a fixture's existing ballast to power the LED replacement tubes...no wiring changes are necessary with this type. You simply replace the fluorescent tubes with the LED's. You should note that the light output of LED's is lower than their fluorescent counterparts as measured in lumens. For the bulbs that I have seen, T8 specific, direct wire/no ballast used LED' s put out 2100 lumens which is roughly 25 - 30% less than a fluorescent. The T8/T12 "plug and play" LED replacements put out only 1700 lumens. Compare this to the lumen output for a T12 fluorescent (2350 lumens +/-) and a T8 fluorescent (2850 lumens +/-). LED's do use less electricity than fluorescents (17 watts vs. 32, 34 or 40, depending on bulb type), but they produce less total light. You need to decide which is more important: light output or operating costs.

Which tome stone should i buy to use with this tallest if I want to switch a T12 over to T 8

should I use shunted or no shunted tomestones
Asked by: daniel
T8 and T12 sockets (tombstones) are identical in size with respect to bi-pin spacing. I have never needed to replace one that wasn't broken. I have never understood the distinction between shunted vs. non-shunted tombstones. The best advice that I can give you is simply to follow the wiring diagram that is printed on the ballast label. Most of the newer ballasts provide only one wire (usually colored blue) for the hot end of each bulb. You will usually find the older ballasts used 2 wires to each hot end. This is not a problem: Simply cut and strip the 2 wires from the old ballast and connect them to the one wire from the new ballast. Be sure keep the wires to each bulb end consistent.

120 to 277-Volt Electronic Ballast for 4 ft. 2-Lamp T8 Fixture is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This electronic ballast was a perfect replacement for the one... This electronic ballast was a perfect replacement for the one that failed in my office. There are many variations of these ballasts, so make sure you get the right one. This one is for two 4 foot T8 tubes. The fixture that this went into has 4 tubes with two circuits so that you can turn on only the inner pair or outer pair of tubes. This is an energy efficiency feature required in California. The wires on the original ballast and fixture use push-in connections on the tube connectors and there is no good way to release the wires. So, you have to cut the wires and use wire nuts to join the high voltage wires going to the tubes. Make sure you get wire nuts that are rated for 600 Volts, not 150 or or 250 Volts.

The reason I rated this product good instead of excellent is a minor issue with the length of the wires that connect to the end caps in the fixture. If you mount the ballast in the same position as the old ballast (taking advantage of the clip and screw on the fixture) the red wire is too short to reach the end caps at the far end of the fixture. It is relatively simple to splice on an additional piece of wire to make the required connection but annoying that the supplied wire is too short. Beyond this the ballast works well.
