6 lamp F20 troffer!

6 lamp F20 troffer!


Pretty cool find at a JCPenney store in OH. I had to remove the lens to see what the deal was as I couldn't tell the lamp configuration from the ground. Yes indeed, (6) F20T12 lamps per fixture. Most, if not all were delamped to 2 or 4 lamps. Again, we were talking about replacing these. It might have to be another rescue mission if that happens.

Typically 2x24w t12 ballasts are LPF and run the lamps at ruduced power. A good way to save the fixtures and make them better is to change the ballasts to t8. They could be left with four lamps, and would probably be just as bright as they originally were with all six lamps.

Yeah, that's what I probably would have done. One 4 lamp electronic ballast (even low ballast factor) would do the trick for sure. Lumen-wise, we would be way ahead with (4) F17T8 vs the (6) F20T12. These are in the office area, and I believe they want to replace and upgrade to indirect troffers. Cost will ultimately prevail, I'm sure - so, we'll see.

This is not that different from the 6 lamp 2X2 F20 Cemco lights in the library at my university

Yes I was mentioning to my friends about that I saw one in Columbia mall that there were some with 6 lamps! Also a lot of them in that store in Columbia mall still has rapid start! Those are actually F40T12s in that store....

This particular store had 2x4 troffers with 6 lamps, too. But, of course, I forgot to take a picture of them. Our Sylvania office in New Orleans has 6 lamp 2x4 parabolics (Columbia), but they were delamped to 4 lamps. Very rare. I suspect those were left over special order fixtures for somebody.

I remember the JC Penney store in my hometown had these fixtures (or something very similar). It closed down in the early 90s and a grocery store moved into the building. I remember seeing a dumpster full of these 2X2 fixtures during their renovation, but I was only an 8 year old kid so getting one would've been nearly impossible.
