*The original 4 T12 40 watt lamps with their ballasts consumed 168 watts.
The 2 Vi-Tek 93® Plus full spectrum light bulbs on a new 2 lamp high ballast factor T8 ballast consume 77 watts.
This results in a power savings of 54%. Your power savings will depend on your current installation.
Studies show that people see, feel and work better under light whose color appearance closely approximates that of natural outdoor light. At 6700K, Vi-Tek 93® Plus not only recreates the refreshing coolness of natural north-sky daylight, its the brightest natural-daylight-simulating fluorescent you can buy! It's so bright, in fact—3,210 lumens from a 40-watt tube—that when energy conservation is a priority, two full spectrum light bulbs can be used in place of the four conventional tubes you are now using.
But Vi-Tek 93® Plus is more than just bright. It's full-spectrum light enhances the work environment because it aids visual perception. Colors appear as they would outdoors. Figures, graphs and fine print appear more distinct. Glare on computer screens is greatly reduced. The quality of light is so good that Vi-Tek 93® Plus full spectrum light bulbs may be used for light therapy in the treatment of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or "winter blues."
Selected Vi-Tek 93® Plus fluorescents feature an exclusive triple coated barium carbonate cathode design that eliminates the need for light-blocking cathode shields, allowing for a full flow of brilliant white light from lamp tip to lamp tip. No shadows, no dark spots, no unsightly end blackening—even after thousands of hours of use.
In addition, these lamps are low-mercury TCLP-compliant models that reduce mercury contamination when the lamps are eventually discarded. RIP Engineering assures reliable operation in Rapid Start, Instant Start, and Programmed Start fixtures. Vi-Tek 93® Plus full spectrum light bulbs come in many sizes and wattages.
