This is a Comparison for 2 lamp 4' T-Bar Fluorescent lamp fixtures. The standard for this project is a T12 lamp on a magnetic ballast. We will be looking at comparing different size Fluorescent lamps as well as various LED systems for retrofitting
We will be using a standard 2 lamp, 4' lamp fixture that we will suspend 8' from the ground and take various light measurements, measurements directly from the ground, and outward in marked locations measuring light disbursement.
Measurement of power consumption.
Cost of retrofits and ROI.
We may even run these fixtures continuously cycling twice per day, on for 10 hours, off for two.
Products used (Initial Start)
- T12 GE lamps
- T8 GE Lamps
- T5 Lamps

Initial Draw Videos
I have done some video shorts which I will post on initial draws of power for a T12 magnetic, T8 Electronic, T5 Electronic, LED retrofit Kits. As I test each one initially before hanging I will update this video section
