The CHLED series of low profile, open LED striplights provides superior energy efficiency and a longer, maintenance-free operating life over the traditional T5 and T8 fluorescent fixtures they are designed to replace.

Using up to 54% less energy and operating for up to 72,000 hours (L70), the CHLED LED striplights are ideal for uplight and downlight in commercial, manufacturing, and warehouse applications.

CHLED is available in 2’, 4’, and 8’ lengths with a choice of 10 lumen packages in 3 color temperatures.


Whether you’re adding new lighting or replacing existing outdated lighting, Simkar’s CHLED LED striplights provide excellent illumination, performance, and durability.


The CHLED Series offers a familiar form with exceptional performance.

Used any place a traditional fluorescent strip would be found, the CHLED offers a wide range of lumen outputs in three color temperatures.


Up to a 72,000 hour operating life (L70) lets you install the fixtures and expect over 16 years of LED operating life.


Also offered are options for mounting, emergency lighting, and controls, greatly extending the range of applications that are ideal for the CHLED.

HOUSING Housing, wireway cover and ends are die-formed heavy gauge steel with high gloss, baked white enamel finish over rust inhibiting phosphate coat. Housing and wireway cover act as heat sink to dissipate heat, maximizing the life of the LEDs and power supplies. Knockouts provided on back, ends, and sides. Reflectors available.

LEDs 2’ Fixtures available in 2 light levels (delivered); 2664 lumens (20.47W) and 3125 lumens (25W) at 4000K CCT, >80 CRI. 4’ Fixtures available in 4 light levels (delivered); 2664 lumens (20.5W), 4928 lumens (36.4W), 7160 lumens (55.4W) and 9701 lumens (73.2W) at 4000K CCT, >80 CRI. 8’ Fixtures available in 4 light levels (delivered); 5328 lumens (41W), 9,856 lumens (72.7W), 14,320 lumens (110.8W), and 19,402 lumens (146.3W) at 4000K CCT, >80 CRI. All models also available in 3500K and 5000K color temperatures. Beam spread is 110 degrees. LEDs are LM-80 tested. Operating life is 72,000 hours (L70). Replaceable Light engines consist of 48, 96, 192, or 384 mid-power LED chips mounted on aluminum core printed circuit boards.

ELECTRICAL 120-277V LED power supply, power factor is >0.9. 0-10V dimmable, standard. Power supplies are mounted in direct contact with steel housing for cooler operation and longer life. Drive current is 750mA for units using 28W drivers. Drive current is 1.4A for units using 40W and 50W drivers. Drive current is 2.1A units using 60W drivers. Power supplies are field replaceable. See performance table for number of drivers in each unit.

Temperature The CHLED series is designed to operate in temperatures of -13˚F (-25˚C) to 104˚F (40˚C).

ACCESS / WIRING Toolless access to wireway striplight. Wireway cover/LED tray snaps onto the housing and can be removed without tools. LED tray can be secured to housing with screws (optional). Wireway cover/LED tray includes tethers (4’ and 8’ units) for easier installation and maintenance. Internal plug-in wiring harness.

MOUNTING Suitable for surface, pendant, stem, or chain mounting, individually or in continuous rows. Use accessory CHJ joiner for continuous rows.

LISTINGS UL listed, damp location. DesignLights™ Consortium Listed direct linear ambient, low bay, and high bay.

WARRANTY 5 year limited warranty.
