Replace 4 Lamp Parallel Ballast Wiring Diagram

How to Direct-Wire Single-Ended LED Tube Lights

Single-ended LED tubes are not recommended because they have many installation restrictions and the wiring can be confusing. For single-ended direct-wired LEDs, line and neutral are connected to the lampholders at one end of the fixture. If shunted lampholders are used in the fixture, they must be replaced with non-shunted at one end of the fixture. Connecting line and neutral to a shunted lampholder will cause a short circuit. Tubes of this type can not be reversed in a fixture. A fixture modification label (should be supplied with the tube) is affixed to the fixture showing which end has power.
