In order to retrofit from linear fluorescent to linear LED you have a couple of good options.
The first option is a Plug-and-play/ direct fit linear LED (UL type A)
A plug-and-play, or direct fit, linear LED is probably what you're imagining –– a simple, one-for-one swap out of the original linear fluorescent lamp. This lamp works directly with the existing fluorescent ballast, so there is no rewiring nor ballast change required. This option will NOT WORK with Magnetic ballasts.
The second option is Ballast-bypass/ line voltage/ direct wire linear LED (UL type B)
Bypass the ballast linear LEDs –– also known as line voltage or direct-wire linear LEDs –– work straight off the line voltage flowing directly to the sockets, requiring you to remove the original fluorescent ballast.
