    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.

Excited to see clearly!

I love these bulbs! I did a lot of research and these are the best bang for the buck. I have a wood working shop and have been trying to swap over to LED fixtures, but most LED lights were horrible at representing color making painting and matching stains and finishes maddening. I would finish a piece think it was ready to deliver to the client, I would take it outside and see how bad it was, then back it would go into the shop. Not with these lights, the high CRI makes all of the difference and the lumen output surpassed all the other bulbs I looked at. The fact that they can work with existing ballasts or hard wired past the ballast takes any and all guess work out of the equation. I replaced the bulbs in my finish room, then replaced the office and I am now in the process of swapping the entire shop floor. Shipping was fast and free. Customer service seams great.

Led lighting

Fast shipping. Lights worked great!

Great Lighting for a workshop

Just bought the NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tube for Art & Studio in both 5000K and 6500K to test out in my workshop.
The 6500K was perfect for my needs. I have very high ceilings and the fixtures are hung at 10ft high. The light is incredible - a big big improvement over the old fluorescent bulbs that I have been living with.
I plan to buy more to replace all the remaining bulbs - I don't know why I waited so long!

studio light

I use these lights as a compliment to natural light and to provide consistent neutral daylight simulated light in the studio. They are easy to install and work very well. That’s why I just ordered another box of them to replace the existing lights that look very yellow in comparison.

Great for dental treatment rooms!

Love my new lights! I purchased “NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tube for Art & Studio“ for a dental treatment room. After trying them in one room, I’ll be outfitting the rest of my treatment rooms soon. These LED tube lights were purchased to replace the existing T12 fluorescent bulbs. Even though my T12 fluorescent bulbs were rated with CRI greater than 90, the Waveform LED product creates much more vibrant colors (important when color matching restorative materials to teeth). The new lights are also qualitatively brighter than the fluorescent T12 bulbs were. I was concerned whether the peak in the blue range of the spectrum would potentially cause problems with my dental composites. I did some testing with several of my dental composites under the new lights, and have used the lights for 2 weeks without any premature curing of the photo-sensitive composite materials. I highly recommend this product for use in dental offices.

Good lighting quality and responsive service

The lighting quality is pleasant and even. I'm replacing all my fluorescents with waveform lighting. The service department was responsive in promptly replacing a defective item.

NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 5000ºK LED Tubes

We really like these lights. Very high CRI, excellent R9. We are planning to replace all of our old fluorescent tubes with Northlux tubes in our New York City photography gallery. Photographs and other artwork really require high CRI illumination for proper viewing – regular LEDs for general illumination won't do.

David M.
The Ultimate Studio Lighting

Upgrading from fluorescent lighting made such a difference. I ripped out the old failing fluorescent ballasts from the ceiling fixture and rewired for LED (not required, but made me feel better). Now, the light is brighter, the colors in my paintings read truer, and I'm much happier. I plan on buying a Northlux shop light to hang over my drawing desks.

As a professional artist, I LOVE NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tubes for Art & Studio! (I bought 4!)

LOVE my NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tubes for Art & Studio!
I bought 4 for my studio -- they use my old fixtures and grace my painting easel with very clean, perfect light!
Such a great technology! No buzz, no flicker, no hesitation! Best studio purchase I have made in a while!
