T2 under cabinet lighting

T2 under cabinet lighting

Click to view full size image

I saw these in a christmas decoration shop in Heidelberg / Germany lighting up the shelfs.
The tubes are extremely thin like T1 tubes and seems to snap into the socket.
I have never seen anything like this.

I have seen T1-T2 lamps before but they were in electronic equipment like copiers and scanners but not general lighting that's a new one for me.

I thought that pic was a screenshot of one of the lights in Doom 3 in the thumbnail.

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?
LEDs = Upgrade 95% of the applications. (That is if you avoid eBay's LEDs).


LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

Member xmaslightguy has a few under cabinet lights that use these. They are T2 lamps.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Maaaannnn this is so weird because I feel like I have seen these before, but then again I feel like I haven't.
Maybe I'm getting mixed up with Cold Cathode fluorescent lamps... but these don't look like they're the same as those.
Sockets... I feel like I've seen those kind of sockets before as well...

From what I just found on Ebay, yes they are. They're also T2 though, not T1. Not sure if 13w is their only wattage though.
Fairly easy to find on Ebay... just type in "T2 Fluorescent Lamp"

This is far thicker than T1. Looks like at least T2. T1 is what scanner used.

Yeah, the only loose T1 tubes I've seen are those CCFL light kits that used to be common in the mid 2000s amongst the custom PC community to light up the inside of your PC. They're pretty much impossible to find now, as the PC community now uses RGB LED strips.

I still have a couple of the kits and inverters lying around. I suppose if one really wanted to have T1 undercabinet lights you could use a few of those CCFL kits and power them off a 12v DC power supply.

There are some Canon scanners (Not of the LiDE series), which uses a white LED, rather than RGB LED. And no, they don't uses a LED strip with lots of LEDs, but a single LED with a light pipe that diffuse the light across the scan head.

Proprietary "circuit boards wrapped in plastic" for whatever under cabinet light they are in.

Here is the T2 lamps of Osram . They have the base that freekster0722 said.
I know only Osram made T2 lamps. Probably also Osram Sylvania made them for the US market. They operates on dedicated electronic ballasts.

A seller whom I'm very familiar with on Ebay (who also has an account here on Lighting Gallery) has Fulham 6w T2 lamps for sale.
Many of them, actually, with different color temperatures.

Osram did sell these T2 lamps and also in the 90s they did sell the fixtures for them. They came in 6, 8, 11 and 13W ratings.
I think this is a Osram fixture!

I'm not gonna lie, I kinda want some of these. If I can find electronic ballasts that can run them successfully without EOL protection
then I would gladly purchase these. lol

Yep, a few years ago I got them in 6w, 8w, 13w, 18w, 24w (the last 2 I believe are fairly uncommon ??)
Last time I was in the ReStore, I saw they had a decent stack of more of those fixtures (don't remember which 2 sizes though)

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Maybe that's why I keep thinking these look familiar... Xmaslightguy posted pics of them a while ago...? Maybe?
But yeah, I'm interested in these as well as fixtures for them. I want to try them on electronic ballasts with
no EOL protection. Heh... that'd be awesome.

Too bad you didn't live here .lol. you could just go up to the ReStore & get some, and the smaller of the 2 fixture sizes they had last time I was there was only $5.

Oooh yep frying an EOL one of those little lamps with IN & no EOL-protection would be fun and deff something for outside
