  • Digi-Key Part#  SSLDEMO-LMP-T1-ND

The T8 Demonstration Kit for Cree XLamp® ML-E LEDs was designed to demonstrate the effective light output of Cree’s 0.5 watt ML-E product in a T8 tube application. The ML-E LED is optimized to deliver a longer lifetime than existing light sources for fluorescent tubes and brings high performance and a smooth look to a wide range of lighting applications. The T8 tube demonstration kit lets designers easily compare the LED light with their current light source. The kit also comes complete with a dimming function so designers will be able to demonstrate the multiple light levels of LEDs in their lighting applications.

In addition to the dimming features of this lighting kit, Marktech Optoelectronics, one of Digi-Key’s Design Services Providers, has produced the tube with two different distances of LED-to-LED spacing and two types of light diffusers showing the design flexibility that LEDs offer to designers of traditional light fixtures. Marktech supports their entire product offering with an extensive knowledge of LED technology and application expertise. Marktech manufactures a large volume and variety of linear LED assemblies and, as a solutions partner with Cree, collaborated with them to showcase Cree’s linear LED lighting products.
