Installation Guide for Linear T8 Replacement Lamps Exclusively Distributed by For a video installation guide view: www.cleanledenergy.com 1-888-828-5858 STEP 1: Shut power “off” at circuit breaker to ensure all wiring involved in retrofitting the fixture is completely and safely de-energized. INSTALLATION OVERVIEW Read all instructions and warning statements before installation. TOOLS NEEDED: Wire cutter, wire stripper, wire connectors and possibly additional wire to extend leads (all properly sized for wires on site). M.L.S. PROVIDES: Tube lamp(s) and fixture Warning Label(s). PREPARATION: Verify pre-retrofit conditions and equipment at your site for confirming your order and tools needed. Existing lampsockets (tombstones) need to be capable of dual wiring, not shunted single wire. See figure “C”. Installers are responsible for understanding how to make proper wire connections and the source/ function of all wires in their facility leading up to the fixture(s); wire colors can vary in all fixtures and buildings. Manufacturer/distributor does not advise anyone to proceed with this LED retrofit who does not understand the instructions or diagrams provided here. Customers are responsible for confirming that LED replacement lamps will provide suitable light output in their specific fixtures and socket configurations before placing orders. STEP 2: Remove diffuser/reflector cover on fixture (if applicable) to expose tube lamps and remove interior cover to expose ballast(s) and wiring. STEP 3: Bypass, or remove ballast(s) from fixture. Disconnect all wire leads between ballast(s) and lamp sockets in the fixture. (See figure A) STEP 4: Dispose of ballast(s) and fluorescent lamp(s) according to federal, state and local hazardous waste regulations. T8 Retrofit wire connections T8 Lamps receive power only on one end of fixture through an unshunted socket. Connect the building’s AC power wires within the fixture housing directly to the lamp socket(s). Fig. A Starter cut Fluorescent Tube AC Input Ballast cut 100-277vac STEP 7: Replace interior wire cover on fixture insuring that wires are reliably secured inside the splice compartment. STEP 8: Affix supplied warning label to ensure maintenance personnel are AFFIX LABEL NEAR LAMP SOCKETS POTENTIAL HAZARD informed of the possible hazard of BALLAST IN THIS FIXTURE HAS BEEN REMOVED OR BYPASSED connecting fluorescent tubes to line DO NOT INSERT FLUORESCENT BULBS power without a ballast. Label should be clearly visible during maintenance operations (can be out of sight from occupants but should not be affixed under the wire cover). STEP 9: Insert Retrofit T8 tube(s) into lamp socket(s) with LED’s facing away from the fixture base. Match “live” end of the lamp(s) with the “live” end of the fixture, from Step 5 above. (See figure C) STEP 10: Replace fixture’s diffuser/reflector (as applicable). Return power to system to light up lamps. cut OR Fluorescent Tube STEP 5: Designate which end of fixture will be “live” and discretely mark with pen. STEP 6: Connect AC line power wires (L) and (N) inside the fixture housing directly to lamp socket at one end of fixture only and properly connect the green ground wire attached to lamp to the ground on fixture or ground wire.

Exclusively Distributed by www.Illuminerinc.com 1-888-828-5858 RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK - USE ONLY IN DRY LOCATIONS. DO NOT INSTALL IN A RACEWAY OR A LUMINAIRE MARKED FOR THOUGH BRANCH WIRING ONLY USE IN TYPE IC LISTED FLUORESCENT, MAXIMUM THREE LAMP TROFFER-STYLE LUMINAIRE WITHOUT DIFFUSER. Multi-lamp wiring “Live” end Fig. 1 No power PROVIDE MINIMUM (110 MM) BETWEEN TUBE TO TUBE SPACING. NOT FOR USE WITH DIMMERS. ALWAYS CONNECT GROUND WIRE LEAD TO FIXTURE WHERE APPLICABLE. WARNING - Risk of fire or electric shock. LED Retrofit Kit installation requires knowledge of luminaire’s electrical system. If not qualified, do not attempt installation. Contact a qualified electrician. WARNING - Risk of fire or electric shock. Install this kit only in the luminaire’s that have the construction features and dimensions shown in the illustrations in this installation guide. WARNING - To prevent wiring damage or abrasion, do not expose wiring to edges of sheet metal or other sharp objects. WARNING - To avoid potential fire or shock hazard, do not use this retrofit kit in luminaire’s employing shunted bi-pin lamp holders. Note shunted lamp holders are found only in fluorescent luminaires with Instant-Start ballasts. Instant-Start ballasts can be identified by the words “Instant Start” or “I.S.” marked on the ballast. This designation may be in the form of a statement pertaining to the ballast itself, or may be combined with the marking for the lamps with which the ballast is intended to be used, for example F40T12/IS. For more information, contact the luminaire retrofit kit manufacturer. “This luminaire has been modified and can no longer operate the originally intended lamp” shall be marked on the retrofit luminaire where readily visible by the user during normal maintenance including re-lamping. LED Lamp Replacement Marking – Identification of the replacement LED lamp type/model to be used along with manufacturer and ordering information. For a linear tubular LED lamp conversion, there shall be text or a diagram showing how the supply connections were made to the lamp holders so the correct connections will be made to the lamp when the lamp is installed or replaced. L(+) N(–) Ground TROUBLESHOOTING: If under proper operation, please confirm if the following reasons are causing improper functioning of the product. If the problem persists and cannot be resolved by the following reasons below, please discontinue usage and contact a qualified electrician or manufacturer/distributor. 1. The LED tube does not light after properly connecting the power to the tube as directed in these instructions. - Check that you have inserted the correct end of the tube with the “live“ or “powered” side of the fixture (flip the tube around and re-insert). - Turn off the power supply and check that wires are making sound connections, including the ground wire. 2. The lamp flashes and flickers when powered on. - Confirm that the power supply is within the luminaire’s requirement of 100-277VAC and that there is no Dimmer Switch on the circuit.
