Traditional fluorescent lighting consumes 50% more energy and emits many green and yellow wavelengths and few red and blue wavelengths, which negatively affects the colour of meat, which goes from red to brown. The fat can turn from white to yellowish or green. This is why T8 LED Tubes Especially for Butchers are used, as their light makes food products seem more appealing to the eye.
This T8 LED Tube uses SMD2835 technology and has an IP44 Protection factor, which allows us to use it between -20ºC and +50ºC.
Connecting these lights requires rewiring the fluorescent tube in the following way: Remove the ballast and starter and directly connect the two cables coming from the mains into the two pins at the end of the tube. Remove the ballast and starter (cutting one of the starters’ cables overrides it completely).
