Thank you, the issue is around safety if broken or damaged in production areas. Do they need to be sleaved or covered like other fluorescent tubes?

Has any one had any experience with led fluorescent light globes the Australian food standards code is quite specific  lux readings, light covers and diffusers and shatter proof globes are all acceptable but now we have led fluos? area they acceptable?

I'm not in Australia(!)- but I did look at these a little while ago when settting up a (small) manufacturing plant

 

Assuming that you are replacing current tubes with LEd ones-so they are going into your current 'food safe' fittings?

 

Advantages

  • they run much cooler-so good for temperature controlled environments
  • light emitted is brighter/whiter-so better working environment-and ideal IMo when doing visual product inspection
  • they consume around 50% of the power of standard tubes
  • long lifespan-i think the one's we looked at were 30-50k hours-but i could be wrong on that!

one downside-they were a bit expensive in terms of initial outlay (at least)!

 

Regards

I may sound like a complete idiot...but actually there are a couple of bits missing

We are about to test this type of lights and replace all halogens.   All I can give you is this website: 

www.oeo.com

 

 

They have all the specifications for your review.

 

I hope this helps, :shades:

One challenge is the heavy metals in these types of lights.  Make sure they are properly disposed of.
