1 | _ T12: 12/8" T8: 8/8" T5: 5/8" The Shrinking Fluorescent

2 | _ Lamp Physics T5 Smaller diameter lamp has less surface area than T8. T5....2*pi*r*h = 2 * 3.14 *.313" * = 87 sq in Dissipate 238 watts in 4 lamps. T8....2*pi*r*h = 2 * 3.14 *.50" * = 145 sq in Dissipates 225 watts in 6 lamps, therefore operates cooler. T8 T5 T8 is 8/8ths or 1 inch wide T5 is 5/8 inches wide 2 shorter MJS

8 | _ GE now offers a 25W 4 T8 lamp for customers who need to create the lowest wattage system with 4 T8 lamps. The 25W lamp provides lower system lumen output than other 4 T8 lamps, but this is an acceptable compromise for applications where lumen output is not critical or where energy savings is more important. What Is It? Product Features: Reduce energy costs over 43% vs T12 Reduce energy costs over 18% vs T8 TCLP compliant 25 Watts 2400 initial lumens Rated Life: - 36,000 hrs / 40,000 hrs IS 3hr / 12hr - 40,000 hrs / 46,000 hrs PRS 3hr / 12hr F32T8 / 25 Watt Lamps 25 Watt 4 T8 LOW WATTAGE SYSTEMS PCDescription 72128F32T8/25W/SPX30/ECO 72129F32T8/25W/SPX35/ECO 72130F32T8/25W/SPX41/ECO 72131F32T8/25W/SPX50/ECO

15 | _ UltraStart TM Ballast for T5 and T8 Fluorescent Lamps Overview What is it Programmed Start electronic ballasts - PS Extends lamp life in frequently switched applications Ideal for occupancy sensors and daylight harvesting Maintains lamp warranty Who is the Target Audience Retail Industrial Warehouse Commercial

16 | _ Maintain lamp life when customers are using automatic light controls NEMA recommends PS in applications of 5 or more starts per day. This was based on a 2004 recommendation acknowledging that Program Start ballast were not energy efficient and were series wired and slow start. Frequent Switching Effect

17 | _ Warranty for lamps on GE Electronic Ballast UltraStart System with GE T5 or T8 lamp on a burning cycle of 15 minutes or more per start. Occupancy Sensors equal GE UltraStart! GE UltraMax or ProLine Instant- Start System on a burning cycle of 10 hours or more per start 10:00 00:15

18 | _ UltraStart TM Ballast for T5 and T8 Fluorescent Lamps Overview Why? Maintain lamp life when customers are using automatic light controls NEMA recommends PS in applications of 5 or more starts per day UltraStart is highly energy efficient and has the convenience of parallel start Customers are more satisfied when lamp life is not compromised
