4xF48T8 Slimline Troffer!!

Spotted at a souvenir shop on my trip at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. There are multiple of these though-out this store, they appear to be dead or disconnected in favor of those crappy led strips. Don’t know if they’re electronic or magnetic. Either way, they’re still very cool!!

I always wondered if these existed. It’s awesome to find out they do. Aside from the fact that slimline lamps don’t last as long, depending on how often they turn on, it should be much easier to maintain, as silmlines are a few inches shorter, so they aren’t as much of a pain to fit past the drop ceiling.

Pretty rare. Troffers with slimline sockets is not very common in the US.

T8? I don't think I've seen the shorter slimlines in T8, aside from the Westy F42T8 (replacement for F42T6).

I've seen T8 F72T8 lamps but I don't think I've seen any shorter than that although I think they made 4' ones too.

I think slimline troffers and louvered fixtures were a alternative to the preheat models offered at the time but I think fell out of favour when rapid start took off.

Back in the early days of T6/T8 slimline, there was only F96T8, F72T8, F64T6, and F42T6. I think the F48T8 came out later for electronic ballasts.

Ive never seen any signs of F48T8 slimline existing. This troffer potentially having them is the closest evidence ive seen.

The F48T8 slimline did exist, but it was not a standard hot cathode slimline. It was a cold cathode lamp that ran at 120mA AC or 100mA DC. It was 23 or 22 watts respectively. It was called the F48T8/CW/CC or F48T8/WW/CC. There were also 72” and 96” versions.

I'm guessing its very rare and finding a nos case is less likely than digging up gold bricks in my backyard
