Product Description

When working on graphic arts, consistent lighting conditions are extremely important for accurate color perception.

NorthLux™ products by Waveform Lighting replicate the consistency and quality of light coming in through a north-facing window. With a 95 CRI rating, colors and hues will appear just as they do under natural daylight, giving you the confidence to work on your projects during evening hours or where supplemental lighting is necessary.

NorthLux™ T8 LED tube lights conveniently work in virtually all 4-ft fluorescent lamp fixtures, making installation quick and easy. The lamps' built-in TriplePlay™ technology automatically detects and adjusts to the fixture's wiring configuration, so you don't have to worry about electrical compatibility.

Fixture Compatibility

The NorthLux™ T8 LED tube is designed to directly replace 4-ft T8 fluorescent lamps (F32T8), and can be directly installed into an existing 4-ft fluorescent fixture regardless of its configuration. ReadyWire™ technology ensures that the LED lamp will work with your fixture, with or without the fluorescent ballast, and whether or not it is single or double-ended.

The best way to determine if these lamps will fit and operate in your current fixture is to confirm the specifications of the fluorescent lamp that is currently installed in your fixture.

First, determine the length of the fluorescent lamp that is currently installed. If it is 4-ft (48") in length and has a 1 inch diameter, you have a T8 4-ft fluorescent lamp, which means that our lamp is compatible. You can also look for a model number or designator on the fluorescent tube: if the code F32T8 is printed on the lamp, this is most likely a compatible fluorescent tube specification.

For most customers, we recommend simply swapping out the fluorescent lamp with our T8 LED tube, as this approach provides the easiest method. For further information and instructions on rewiring for ballast bypass, please refer to our install guide / user manual.

Note on Ballast Compatibility: Our T8 lamps are designed to work with almost all T8 fluorescent ballasts. Please see here for a list of ballasts with which we have tested and confirmed compatibility. The T8 LED lamps can also be used without a ballast.

We recommend removing or bypassing T12 fluorescent ballasts for compatibility reasons.

Graet lights for studio

Lighting works great! I ordered the 5000K and will be ordering the 6000K to try and get a neutral light.

Robert Appel
Excellent Lighting

I was looking for an LED bulb with high CRI and daylight color temperature that would drop into my existing fluorescent fixtures. They have worked well so far. I did bypass the existing ballasts in the fixtures, so minor electrical wiring experience is a plus if using these in T12 fixtures.

Katie Garner
Good so far

They seem nice, the packaging was sufficient to protect the bulbs during shipping. I have yet to be able to paint with them since my studio is still under construction but I’m very excited to try.

Ben Hunt
Great Lights

These are great lights! I have installed the Northlux T8 5000k bulbs in part of an art gallery. The color temp, CRI and lumen output is great. I will be ordering more to fill out the rest of the gallery.

Garry Kravit
Perfect. Just Perfect.

I have an art studio in my home in Florida. For several years I was painting with lower quality, lower CRI lights and had no idea how "off" they were until I purchased the Munsell book of color chips. With my old lights strings of hues would look broken and not in the same family but when I walked outside and looked at the same string in daylight the colors looked correct. I purchased Waveform NorthLux LED tubes for my old T8 figures and they worked perfectly. The strings of color are as they look in outside daylight. I was amazed. These lights are so good I purchased a second set for a cabin in North Carolina where I paint regularly. I cannot recommend these LED lights highly enough. They are worth the price and will last for a very long time.
