Double Duty Tubes

Our hybrid technology is now available in dual-mode tubes.

Versatility keeps installations simple.

RAB's hybrid A/B tubes can be used as plug and play (UL Type A) or as a double-ended ballast bypass (UL Type B) retrofit. For Type A installation simply remove the fluorescent tube and replace it with our hybrid—no rewiring required. If the Instant Start ballast should fail, simply cut the ballast from the system and wire the tube directly to line voltage 120-277V!

Flexible in all the right ways.

Hybrids can act as either Type A (plug and play) or Type B (ballast bypass, double-ended retrofit) tubes. They're available in both 4ft and 2ft models, and in various color temperatures for maximum application flexibility.

Keep inventory at a minimum.

Get everything you expect from both Type A and Type B tubes, with less SKUs to manage. Save shelf and cargo space, reduce carrying costs, increase product availability and improve flexibility in the field.

Designed to perform, built to last.

All hybrid tubes are glass construction for optimal heat dissipation and have a diffusion coating that allows for smooth, even light distribution and won’t yellow, shrink, or wrinkle over time.

Enclosed fixture rated.

All hybrid tube models are designed to handle the heat of closed spaces, so they can be used with confidence in both open and enclosed fixtures.
