Arcadia Support Portal :: What is T5?

What is T5?

A. The T letter associated with fluorescent lamps simply denotes the width or diameter of the tube. A T12 lamp is one and a half inches in diameter, a T8 lamp is one inch in diameter and a T5 lamp is five eighths of one inch in diameter. So a T5 lamp is thinner than the standard T8 lamp. What we produce at Arcadia reptile is an evolution of T5!

There are two definite groups of lamps that use the T5 diameter. The first is called HE T5. This stands for “high efficiency” these are standard output lamps of a smaller diameter and lower wattage. In short they are a T8 standard lamp in a thinner glass shell. The second type is different all together. HO or “high output” T5 uses this same diameter of lamp but utilises a high performance and very expensive phosphor that requires a high output, high frequency electronic signal to start and run.

These lamps typically emit 2-3 times more visible light and UV energy than a standard output T8 lamp. When used with the right reflector this efficacy is doubled again. These lamps are simply much brighter and provide good quantities of UVA and UVB. Using an electronic control system also means that they are flicker free, this means that they are safer and more comfortable to reptile tetrachromatic vision and better for humans that are sensitive to the flicker associated with fluorescent lamps.
