What’s the big deal?
Why would you select a T5 or T5HO lamp over a T8 lamp in the first place?
 They have a smaller lamp size. T5s are about 40% smaller than T8 lamps which allows for smaller luminaires (aka
design flexibility good for tight spots and thin profile fixtures).
 They are lightweight. T5s are lighter, which minimizes suspended fixture weight and reduces shipping costs.
 They maintain max light output. T5 lamps can produce similar amounts of lumens for less wattage. T5s maintain
max light output for almost the entire lifetime of the lamp.
 They are energy efficient. T5 ballasts offer a variety of ballast factors and dimming options and support energy
saving lamp applications.
 They are cost effective vs. existing HID. T5 lamps can save money over time because of a longer lifespan while
producing more light with less wattage. T5 and T5HO lamps may reduce the number of luminaires per project.
 They are quiet. All electronic T5 ballasts carry class “A” sound rating so they are very quiet.
 They operate in higher temperature ranges. T5HO (High Output) means wattage is higher than normal for the
size of lamp and specifically manufactured to handle the excess energy. T5 provides higher lumens per watt
efficiency with peak light output at 35°C versus 25°C for T8 lamps. Ideal for high ambient temperatures.

Replacement Opportunity
Universal is the number one market share
leader in T5 and T5HO ballasts.
T5 and T5 High Output (HO) ballasts entered the
OEM market in 2000. The volumes steadily rose,
and by 2004, OEMs were purchasing several
million units per year.
As the base ages, the need for replacement
naturally increases.
The demand for T5 ballasts in the Distribution
channel will continue to grow.
In 2012, it was estimated that as many as 7
million units of T5 and as many as 11 million
units of T5HO ballasts were nearing their endof-life.
This creates an opportunity and it’s essential
that our distributors are ready for the T5 and
T5HO replacement opportunity.

Occupancy Sensors
Universal offers T5 programmed start ballasts that are compatible with high frequency
cycling applications like occupancy sensors.
 Use Programmed Start to maintain lamp life when ballasts are connected to
occupancy sensors which will switch frequently. If the lighting is going to be
switched on and off frequently -- typically less than three hours per start.
 Programmed Start ballasts feature a “soft start” technology that maximizes
lamp life, making them the perfect choice for high-cycling applications
including those involving occupancy sensors and wall switches.
 The DOE says, “Occupancy sensor systems are gaining traction as an
effective approach to reducing energy use, and can potentially
enhance the savings from an already efficient lighting system.”
 Occupancy sensors can reduce energy consumption from 10 to 40%
depending on the application.
