Why Make The Switch to Jacksta Energy T5 Conversion Kits?

  • Impressive Energy Savings, high frequency operation combined with new generation T5 tube provides savings of up to 65%
  • Rapid payback, as the cost of converting existing luminaires is a fraction of a complete light fitting replacement, the payback on Jacksta Energy Kits is very fast
  • Reduces maintenance by over 30%  the high frequency ballast, combined with the new generation T5 tube offers 50,000 hour service life,  twice that of a standard luminaire fitting with conventional tubes
  • Hassle-free installation, simply plug the tube into the conversion kit and replace the T8/T12 tube with the Jacksta Energy kit New Generation Technology
  • The tri-phosphor T5 fluorescent tube has high general colour index (up to 85Ra), offering comparable light output and colour rendering to existing T8/T12 tubes. How Does It Work?
  • The Jacksta Energy Kit simply plugs into an existing luminaire, transforming it electronically from conventional control gear to a new generation high frequency luminaire without removing the existing magnetic ballast. The old ballast is made dormant by the T5 converter's control circuit. Kit Contents
  • The Kit comes complete with a T8-T5 Fluorescent Tube Converter which sits inside the existing fitting and includes an electronic ballast, housing and T5 tube which offers comparable light output to a T8/T12 tube.
