Why are Philips fluorescent tubes a good choice?
Philips has been a major player in the lighting market for many years. In the area of fluorescent tubes, Philips has a diverse range that still enjoys great popularity due to the high product quality, even despite LED technology. Philips offers TL-D (T8), TL5 (T5), T12, mini tubes and even round fluorescent tubes.

What characterises the Philips Super 80 Master fluorescent tube?
Super 80 TL tubes from Philips are known for their high colour rendering of 80-89 Ra and high luminous efficacy. The tubes are therefore suitable for offices, public spaces and industrial areas. The fluorescent tubes also have a lower mercury content compared to other Philips fluorescent tubes. Their highly efficient coating ensures good light distribution. Another advantage: these tubes can be operated with a conventional or electronic ballast, the latter ensuring higher efficiency.

Why should I choose the Master TL5 High Efficiency tube?
The name of this Philips TL tube gives it away: this fluorescent tube is particularly efficient! In terms of lamp efficiency, one looks at the energy consumption (watts) in relation to the light output (lumens). With Master HE tubes, this is at least 89 lumens per watt and a maximum of 104 lumens per watt, which is well above the standard (65 lm/W). From this you can immediately see that this fluorescent tube has an economical energy consumption for the high amount of light it produces. This product line is therefore ideal for use in offices, shops, schools, public buildings and industry. Note: You need an electronic ballast to use it.
