The T8 Fluorescent Tube has a diameter is 8/8th of an inch (or 1 inch / 26mm) and is commonly available in Osram or Philips 1ft 300mm 8W, 2ft 600mm 18W, 3ft 900mm 30W, 4ft 1200mm 36W, and 5ft 1500mm 58W configurations. All fluorescent lamps operate off an electronic or magnetic control gear which also consumes additional power (about 5-10%).
Converting to LED tubes is easy. They run directly off 220V so live and neutral are wired directly to the lamp. The installer needs to simply rewire the fitting so that live and neutral are wired to the same side of the fitting and bypass/remove the existing ballast.
