Compatible Ballasts

Our T5 LED tubes are designed to generally be compatible with most T5 fluorescent ballasts. However, certain ballast types such as programmed start ballasts have shown poor compatibility.

Below are ballasts that we have tested and confirmed to be compatible with our T5 LED tubes.

  • GE21T5-120-RES
  • GE28T5/2-120-RES
  • KTEB-221PS-1-TP /A
  • KTEB-228HE-UV-PS-SL
  • KTEB-114-1-TP-FC /P
  • KTEB-228-1-TP-PH-SL /B
  • GE28T5/2-120RESL
  • QHE 2*28T5/UNV PSN

Product Overview

PhotonTube™ is a new LED tube product line that has its light output tuned to the spectral and intensity needs of growing coral & aquatic plants and keeping fish healthy. The T5 PhotonTube™ offers 48 umols/sec of photon output, with spectral coverage across the PAR spectrum from 420 nm to 800 nm.

Used in a 2-lamp fixture, this product is sufficient for aquarium and planted tanks up to 45 gallons and 30 inches deep.

Our PhotonTube™ LED grow lights are available in 4000K and 6500K, with 95 CRI and R9 > 80 - this indicates a color spectrum that comes very close to natural sunlight.

LED technology enables much longer lifetimes. 50,000 hours of useful life equates to 13 years at 10 hours per day.

Because this is a full-spectrum product, the resulting light output is a soft white color that simulates natural daylight. The high CRI rating ensures that your coral colors will pop, and fish colors appear as natural and vivid.

These T5 LED tubes are UL Type A compatible, meaning they must be used with a fluorescent ballast. Simply remove that old T5 fluorescent bulb, and replace it with our T5 bulb and you'll be up and running in seconds!
