Low maintenance and operating costs
Are you wondering which technology you need for your luminaire with T8 fluorescent lamp – an EM lamp or an HF lamp?
Our insider tip reveals two easy ways to find out.
Check whether the luminaire you want to fit the new lamp in has a starter. If it does, you need a SubstiTUBE T8 EM for operation on a CCG. If not, use an ECG-compatible version, either SubstiTUBE HF or UNIVERSAL.
If the luminaire still has a working T8 lamp, take a look at it through a digital camera (such as the one on your smartphone or tablet). If the light flickers, you need a SubstiTUBE T8 EM for operation on a CCG. Otherwise use an ECG-compatible version, either SubstiTUBE HF or UNIVERSAL.

Remember to check the compatibility of the electronic control gear before installation for all ECG-operated types (HF and UNIVERSAL).
