Sometimes these bulbs have been used in task fixtures and older fixtures, but now have generally been
replaced by more efficient types. The F15T12 bulb will be 1.5 inch in diameter and
inches long. The F15T12 is the standard cool white and warm white
lamp that's been used in specialty lighting throughout the world. As with all
fluorescent bulbs, they rely on ballasts inside of the fixtures in order to make
them work. The ballast is important because
it is specific for each type of lamp. You can't change from one type of
fluorescent to another without changing the ballast in most cases.
On a rare occasion, there may be a ballast that is made for several different
types such as in the case of some kinds of energy efficient T8 lamps, but that's
not the case with these F15T12 fluorescent light bulbs. The ballast and
the lamp are matched electrically and so it's good to make sure the ballast you
have is the right one for the lamp you choose. This lamp
typically operates on a magnetic ballast which is less efficient than it's
electronic counterpart. Look for this lamp commonly used in a display
lighting situation. We have this bulb available in several different lengths and
they are sometimes labeled as F15T12.
As mentioned before, F15T12 fluorescent lights have been used in many types
of lighting that includes some things that are a little more obscure. A
real popular application is task or other types of machinery which require a
specific size light to illuminate a certain area. Mostly it's for illuminating
areas which are usually tight it and hard to reach.
That's why we keep a full selection of these lamps for you who have applications
that use these. We have them in the popular colors including cool white,
warm white and cool white deluxe. The cool white deluxe version will give
you true color and bring out whites and colors the way they should be seen.

country, we make the F15T12 fluorescent light bulbs a substantial part of our

Remember that there are many types of fluorescent lighting, we describe some
of the most common used in commercial lighting here. The F15T12 fluorescent
light bulb is still a variety used for specialized fluorescent lighting, look for it
