The T8 LED Tube Dummy Starter should be used for replacing your old fluorescent tubes with LED TL Tubes in the same fixture.
Note! You do not need a T8 LED Tube Dummy Starter when installing LED TL tubes in LED TL fixtures. These fixtures are designed in such a way that you no longer need a starter.


Below is a brief instruction on how you can easily and quickly replace your old TL lighting with our T8 LEDs in just a few steps:

Fixture with 1 or more TL tubes:

  1. Turn off the power
  2. Remove the old TL lighting
  3. Remove the starter (if fitted)
  4. Remove the ballast
  5. Move the FASE and ZERO wires to one side of the fixture in the socket/ holder (The LED only needs power on one side)
  6. Insert the LED TL into the luminaire - with L N Input on the socket on the current side.
  7. Switch on the power
