PLL lamps or 2G11 lamps as they are also known as a type of lamp that is very common in the UK. The 2G11 base has 4 pins that are configured in a straight flat configuration rather than a square 4 pin configuration of the PL lamp.
The PLL fluorescent lamp comes in many different wattages and the length of the lamps changes depending on the wattage.
Common wattages for fluorescent PLL lamps are the 16 watt, 36 watts and 55 watts lamps. The LED lamp equivalent for the above lamps is 8 watts, 16 watts and 25 watts therefore the savings are approximately 50%.
LED lamps unlike fluorescent lamps just require mains power applied directly to the lamp holder inside the fittings therefore if retro fitting LED PLL lamps into existing light fittings the control equipment fitted inside the light fitting of the fluorescent lamps will need to be bypassed.
Typically mains power comes into the fitting via a 3 core cable which is terminated into a fused connection block. The cabling is then wired from the fused connection block to the lamp holders and the control equipment. The simplest way to get the fitting LED ready is to wire from the connection block to the lamp holder and bypass the control equipment completely. The re-wiring of the fitting is quite straight forward but must always be completed by a qualified electrician.
