T12A-xK36W-8S Supported Electrical Configurations

Connection Types

Type A Dual-End LED Tube Lights are a plug-n-play solution for existing fixtures and as such they require being wired from both ends of the tube as a typical fluorescent light would require.

Dual Ended

Electrically connected on both ends of the tube, with one end connecting to line and one to neutral. This type can use shunted or non-shunted sockets. As with the original bulbs these are replacing, one end of the tube connects to L and the opposite end to N—one end should not be connected to both.

Ballast Compatibility

Since Type A Dual-End LED Tube Lights are intended to directly replace fluorescent tubes without any other electrical work they require the use of the original ballast. If you have determined that your ballast is functioning properly this is the easiest method of relamping.

How To Wire:

Socket Wiring

When installing Type A Dual-End LED Tube Lights in a fixture which previously had a fluorescent tube light you can simply install the light leaving the shunting type intact.


Both contacts in the same socket (tombstone) are connected/bridged and are the same polarity—either L or N.


Contacts in the same socket (tombstone) are split, but can be either the same polarity or opposing polarity depending on the way the socket (tombstone) is wired.

Determining Shunted or Non-Shunted

Below are some typical examples of how shunted or non-shunted sockets might look. You should always check the socket terminals with a multimeter before installing bulbs or rewiring. If the two sides of a socket have continuity, then the socket is shunted regardless of appearance.

Need To Wire Differently?

LED tubes lights can be wired with or without ballast, and from either end depending on the tube type.

Not plug n play even with the recommended GE balla

They are supposed to be plug in play with the compatible ballasts and after buying the exact model ballasts from lowes, 2 of them, neither was able to power the lights more than 50% brightness. They were 25% the brightness of the fluorescent bulbs I was trying to replace. They also took 11 days to arrive after they traveled the east coast back and forth.
