Difference between LED tube Type-A vs LED tube Type-B vs LED tube Type-C

This page compares LED tube Type-A vs LED tube Type-B vs LED tube Type-C and mentions difference between LED tube Type-A,LED tube Type-B and LED tube Type-C.

LED lighting has become popular due to its long life, energy efficiency and easy controllability.

LED tube Type-A

LED tube type-A

Features of LED tube type-A are as follows.
• Figure-1 depicts this LED tube type.
• As shown it uses electronic ballast.
• It operates from 100 to 277 V AC with 50/60 Hz frequency.
• It requires that ballast to be replaced at every maintenance time.
• It is considered to be having "risk of fire and electrical shock".
• This LED tube type-A needs replacement of ballast and lamp holders.

LED tube Type-B

LED tube type-B

Features of LED tube type-B are as follows.
• Figure-2 depicts this LED tube type.
• As shown it uses magnetic ballast.
• It operates from 100 to 277 V AC with 50/60 Hz frequency.
• It is designed to operate with internal driver, but it can be directly operated from mains power.
• In this type, incoming power lines are directly connected with sockets and hence personal are exposed to AC voltage. Hence this type also has "risk of fire and electrical shock".

LED tube Type-C

LED tube type-C

Features of LED tube type-C are as follows.
• Figure-3 depicts this LED tube type.
• It does not use any ballast type.
• It operates from 100 to 249 V AC with 50/60 Hz frequency.
• It uses external driver and uses modified fixture compare to type-A and type-B.
• Low voltage outputs of driver are connected to sockets instead of line voltage used in type-A and type-B.
• Here fixture input wires must be interfaced to the driver. Low voltage output of driver is interfaced with socket.
