Hera Lighting SlimLite T4 and SlimLite XL T5 fluorescent under cabinet lights


Tubular miniature fluorescent lighting, great for kitchen under cabinet lighting, overhead lighting, commercial food cases, and store display shelves

The SlimLite T4 and T5 have been around a long time. All are the pin connector style in all 8 lengths available. XL is the notation for pin connector. All cables, power cords, hardwire boxes and the connectors on each end of the lights are XL connectors. If you need information on the old blade style SlimLites in the T4 size that precede 1999, select this link. We have a web page just for that info.

SlimLites cast a LOT of light with a low power output. They are slim and easy to hide under you cabinets. They also can be direct connected end to end to create long runs of continuous light. We are going to show you the 4 pages from the Hera Lighting catalog, and then several pictures we have taken ourselves.

The part numbers and pricing for all SlimLites and accessories will follow after the 4 catalog pictures. Then after that the additional photos we took to show you much more about the lights.

Cool White lights (bulbs) are a nice clean white light. Warm white are softer and have a very faint amber hue to them. For display cases, store shelves, food prep, the cool white is used. In kitchens, it is your choice. If you have black or very dark counter tops, the warm white may be a better idea for less glare. Please e-mail us your questions.

This is a very long web page. There is a ton of data on it to help you with your planning.

What to order & How to order:

  • Please use the Hera part numbers from the grids below when ordering.
  • Fluorescent fixtures will come with bulb and Plexiglas cover, and mounting clips.
  • Up to 150 combined Watts can be connected in-line on a single power cord or power lead from the hardwire box for the T4 size SlimLites. T5 have a maximum of 585 watts per string.
  • T4 and T5 lights can be connected together on the same power string. But then your max. wattage for that string becomes 150 watts. Two very important notes.
  • You will need one power cord and then however many direct connectors or connecting cables to achieve your set up per light string.
  • Remember to select a connecting cable or direct connector to attach your first light to the hardwire box if setting up a hard wire application.
  • If lighting is required in another location, be certain to purchase the correct number of power cords needed.
  • Power cords are available with or without a roll switch.
  • A separate on/off rocker switch (SRS/XL) can easily be connected in-line using direct connectors or connecting cables. The on/off rocker switch does not connect directly to the lights, it needs two connectors. The switch will control power from the switch to everything down line from it.
  • If plugging the lights into an outlet controlled by a wall switch, you will not need a power cord with the roll switch or the on/off rocker switch. The standard power cord HER-SPC/XL will suffice.


INFO ON OLDER BLADE STYLE SLIMLITES FROM HERA LIGHTING:
All current Hera SlimLites have the XL pin connector type ends. One end has two gold pins, the other end has two "round" sockets for the gold pins on the cables or direct connector to fit into. The 10", 13", and 20" SlimLites can be connected in line with their big brothers ranging from 1' to 5' long. The old blade style had two identical looking ends. Select the link in the title of this paragraph for more info.

More ordering help:
Note that the SlimLites do not connect end to end without the aide of a connecting cable or direct connector. They are not like the Stick2-LED and Stick3-LED. You must use connecting cables or the direct connector. And if using the SRS/XL in-line rocker switch, it connects just like the lights do. You need a connector on each side of it. The inexpensive direct connector will work on both sides. Or feed it directly after the power cord and use just one direct connector. All connections are push down onto the ends of the light, not in from the ends, but over the ends.

The power cord and connecting cable wires are best described as looking like normal lamp cord. All are white.

A few more ordering notes follow after the price grid below as well as many illustrative photos of the components. Fluorescent SlimLites are NOT dimmable. They are bright, they throw a lot of light in approx. a 220 degree spread from the tube. T5 SlimLite bulbs last longer and thus longer length T5 units do cost more, but you are covering more space with them. Each SlimLite is package with bulb and cover, and metal mounting clips.

If you have questions about the lights, cables, or accessories, please call or e-mail us. We know the SlimLite system takes a bit more planning. We can help you.

Part numbers and prices for items listed above are in the grid below. Most SlimLites and accessories are stocked in modest to large quantities. Anything that we do not have in stock, we will receive in 5 to 6 days. When ordering, please use the part numbers below shown with the HER- prefix before them.

The ES10, ES13, and ES20 fixtures over the years have been labeled or referred to as DL07, DL10, & DL18.
ES10, ES13, ES20 refer to the length of the fixture, 10", 13", and 20".
DL07, DL10, DL18 refer to the wattage of the bulbs, 7 watt, 10 watt, and 18 watt.

Sorry to say, Hera has chosen to discontinue the T4 size SlimLites. We have noted above how many of each we have left and which have completely sold out. Replacement T4 bulbs are still available in abundance. But the fixtures with bulb and cover have a limited supply left. The quantities remaining will be updated as they continue to get smaller. There is no direct substitute, but we have been informing customers about the ELite-LED XL version. Hera came out with the ELite-LED several years ago. It is a T5 size, so the width and distance that the light hangs down is just a spec greater. The ELite-LED look extremely similar to the T5 SlimLites, and they are better. They throw more light and use less electricity, and have a 50,000 estimated lifespan. No bulbs to change in the LED either. And then, Hera came out with the ELite-LED XL version. This version has the same XL pin connectors on each end, and you can use all the same SlimLite cabling if you upgrade to it. The EL/LED/12/4000/XL is 11-5/8" long and a great and easy upgrade for the 13" T4 Slimlite. If upgrading from the 10", make sure you have that extra 1-1/2" of space. The EL/LED/22/4000/XL is 21-7/8" long. So if upgrading from the 20" T4 Slimlite, make sure you have 1-3/4" of more space to upgrade to the ELite-LED XL. The XL version of the ELite-LED comes only in cool white. The standard version of the ELite-LED comes in cool white and warm white, and in 5 lengths. More Info on the ELite_LED and ELite-LED XL here. (Note updated March 19, 2019)
 

Here is a quick pictorial reference for converting from the T4 SlimLites to the ELite-LED XL:

Hera Lighting T4 SlimLite and ELite-LED XL
Shown above from the top downward: ES20CW 20" long SlimLite; ES13CW 13" long SlimLite; ES10CW 10" long SlimLite; EL/LED/22/4000/XL the 21-7/8" long ELite-LED XL; and the EL/LED/12/4000/XL the 11-5/8" long ELite-LED-XL.

Hera Lighting ES13 to ELite tube length comparison
This picture is showing how the EL/LED/12/4000/XL is a great substitute for the ES13 SlimLite. It is a bit shorter, so it will fit, and look at the light output area of the tube. The Elite lighted tube area extends to almost the full length of the fixture. So even though the ELite is shorter, the light output length is longer than the 13" SlimLite bulb. Now for the 10" SlimLite, you do need to make sure you have another 1-1/2" of space for the ELite to fit. When retrofitting the EL/LED/22/4000/XL for the 20" SlimLite, make sure you have 1-3/4" more space. Despite what it may say anywhere else on our website or other websites, we just measured these two ELite's. The overall lengths came out to 11-5/8" and 21-7/8".

Hera Lighting XL connecting end output
The ELite-LED XL has the same connecting ends as the SlimLite T4 and T5. You can retrofit and continue to re-use all your SlimLite cables and connectors.
HER-EL/LED/12/4000/XL @ $100.14 each
HER-EL/LED/22/4000/XL @ $106.61 each

ELites are rated to last approx. 50,000, no bulbs to change.

* SFB28 and SFB35 SlimLite bulbs are not available for International orders, except Canadian shipments. We can ship these sizes to Canada. We can ship them to Hawaii and Alaska, but they will ship via UPS 2nd day air, or via Fed Ex 2-day. We cannot ship these long lengths through the US Postal Service. They are too fragile. For orders that we set up as direct ships from Hera, it is at Hera's discretion to use the freight carrier of their choice. In most cases, it is Fed Ex Ground or UPS Ground. Faster shipping services are available for direct ships upon your request.

Ordering notes:
When ordering, first plan your light lengths and number of lights needed. Then determine how many independent runs of light you will have and select the correct number of power cables or hardwire boxes. Look at your set up and determine if your lights will be connected end to end or spaced apart a little. Then select the number of direct connectors or cables that you will need. The in-line rocker switch is for controlling power from the switch position downward in your power string of lights. All connectors and power cords PUSH DOWN onto the light ends. They do not feed in from the end, they push down on the lights, and the hardwire boxes and SRS/XL rocker switch are the same. Thus the lights, hardwire boxes, and SRS/XL switch do NOT connect directly together without the aid of the direct connector or connecting cables.

All 8 sizes of Fluorescent SlimLites come prepackaged with the Plexiglas shield, bulb, and metal mounting clips.. Order replacement bulbs as you see fit when you may need them.

SlimLite & SlimLite XL run from household current. No power drivers or transformers are required.

Additional info / resources:
Hera has two versions of the SlimLite. The first is the one that has been around over 20 years. The T4 and T5 fluorescent version, available in 8 lengths in cool white and warm white bulbs. The next version is the SlimLite XL-LED, available in 4 lengths in the T5 tube size. The fixtures are different. You cannot just put a SlimLite LED tube into the fixture designed for the Fluorescent tubes. They are not the same. Yet the cables, connectors, hardwire boxes, and switches are all the same. So upgrading from fluorescent to LED has some ease to it.

If you would like to make the jump from fluorescent to LED, check out the new ELite-LED. You will be amazed.
