Seaborough has been developing a LED solution for T8 retrofit tubes for several years. Our tubes have the advantage that they are 100% compatible so they always fit on any fixture and moreover the tubes have a safety cap to install the TLED's safely. The Seaborough solutions save roughly 50 to 70 percent on energy costs. Which is very positive for the environment, as well as a substantial cost reduction.

About our Electronics program

The program runs several long-term research and development projects in collaboration with world leading companies. The IP thus generated is commercialized through licensing contracts with strategic partners (Link to partners page). We are highly committed to support these partners during the implementation phase of its IP in finished products. This is the way we make the real difference.

oneTLed® is the flagship universal LED retrofit tube developed by Seaborough with almost 100% compatibility with electronic ballasts, 100% compatibility with magnetic ballast, and works when connected to direct-AC mains (120V/230V).

The electronics program also works together with the Seaborough Life Science program. The objective is supporting the research process and bringing out products that improve people’s well-being and health.
