Follow the diagram to the left for more details. Remove Ballast and Starter to prevent damage to the LED Tube. The two pins on each end of the tube are linked together.
To supply power to the light, connect one side of the AC Cable to the two pins on one end and the other cable to the opposite end. Do not connect power to two pins on one end as that will short circuit and causes damage to the tube. The LED Grow Light is convenient to use. You can twist it into any normal socket to replace any incandescent or halogen light bulbs.The LED light bulbs have a super long life that last for 100,000 hours. That would be more than 12 years of continuous operation. Since LED is in a solid state (no filament) it is almost indestructible (not if you intended to destroy it). LEDs are about 10 times the efficiency of a typical flashlight bulb, so you get more light and you can cut down your electric bill at the same time. The wavelengths of some LED are compatible with the absorption peak of the pigments involved in photosynthesis and photomorphogenesis. Only necessary light for those physiological functions can be irradiated. LED in the visible light area contain little heat rays, allowing for short-distance irradiation. Reduced Energy Consumption and Long Life. LED substantially reduce power consumption. Depending on the operating environment, an LED can provide thousands of hours of light. Since an LED emits light through a semiconductor device, its life is many times longer than that of other light sources (however, it can be affected by the operating environment). LED is developed to emit a specific color efficiently by adjusting the materials used in the semiconductor compounds. The wavelength of an LED is relatively fixed, but not as much as that of a laser beam. Another distinction, LED in the visible range contain little heat rays. Therefore, they radiate almost no heat in the direction of emission. Below are comparison of LED and other lamps' spectral Distribution. Lighting energy is used in an important photoreaction, the synthesis of carbon dioxide and water into organic compounds. The pigments called chlorophyll play a role in this reaction by absorbing light. Below is a picture that illustrate the effect of different on sunflowers.
