JayTheDragonTamer":2pyipvba said:So just to clarify, Arcadia’s t5 bulbs are all HO, and fit into the ProT? Or does High output only refer to the fixture and any t5 can fit into it? I might buy a different fixture for my bulb.. so should that be ho or just t5?
Also where does this “euro range” thing come in?
I probably have this wrong, but is this the European version of the bulbs and fixtures? Arcadia only has an American website as far as I can see, so i’m worried that I might buy something that I can’t use. I am in the UK.
If that’s not what Euro range means, will I need an adapter for my sockets?
Sorry for all the questions, I’m probably over complicating this. I’m just confused lol
As far as I know, they're all HO. Euro Range tends to refer to T8 bulbs that have a (relatively) high output, but again I think this is a mostly a marketing term. As long as you pick out a T5 fixture with a good reflector that is the appropriate size for the bulb you want, it should work without a problem. The length and the type (T5, T8, etc) are the important numbers for fit.
Since you're in the UK, you have access to better stuff than we do in the US. A lot of the Arcadia stuff is made for that market. I went the opposite way with one of my good Arcadia bulbs and have a UK bulb and use a power converter for it :lol:
