Legend:

  • FA = Fluorescent Aperture
  • 1st number after FA = “Length”; only with T12’s is this number the actual length.
  • 2nd segment – T5/T8/T12 = Diameter: T=1/8“; e.g. T5 = 5 x 1/8 > T5= 5/8” diameter.
  • 3rd segment – D/CW/TB1 = Phosphor: Daylight = Daylight; CW = Cool White; RGB = Red /Green/Blue (Tri-Band1)
  • 4th segment – VHO = Very High Output = 1500mA; Other outputs are Standard = 400mA; High Output /HO = 800mA
  • Last segment = Degree of aperture; e.g., 30⁰ aperture = 30⁰ of 360⁰ of phosphor coating has been scraped away to convert an otherwise Fluorescent into directional lighting = extra bright.

NOTE: Shipping lamps entail special packaging / fee to doubly protect against breakage.
