Keystone DirectDrive DX2

EIN Keystone DirectDrive DX2

August 4, 2022

Keystone’s DirectDrive DX2 is a UL Type B line voltage tube offering single- or double-ended wiring options, allowing you to hold less inventory. In addition, DX2 utilizes both shunted and non-shunted lamp holders, making it an easy LED replacement for T8 fluorescent tubes.

These T8 LED tubes can provide up to 50% more energy savings than standard F32T8 lamps. Since LED tubes have a longer useful lifespan than their fluorescent counterparts, DX2 will also reduce maintenance costs.

These tubes are available in both dedicated color temperature options and with Keystone’s Color Select technology. The selectable version allows users to choose from among five color temperatures – 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, 5000K, and 6500K – making this versatile tube an ideal replacement for conventional fluorescent lamp, single- or double-ended line voltage wiring.

Select DirectDrive DX2 tubes are now available in Made in America options. These tubes offer the same single- or double-ended wiring versatility while meeting with BAA and TAA standards.
