Fluorescent Starter Sockets: Shunted vs. Non-Shunted:
The difference between shunted and non-shunted tombstones is how electrical current flows through them into the fixture. In shunted Fluorescent Starter Sockets, current flows through multiple paths and in non-shunted sockets, through a single path.

Using the wrong socket with an incompatible ballast or bulb can result in lamp failure, damage to the ballast, and void the warranties on the different components.

The type of Fluorescent Starter Sockets needed depends on the type of ballast used in the fixture. Fixtures with rapid start, programmed start, and dimming ballasts use non-shunted lamp holders.

Fixtures with instant start ballasts require shunted lamp holders. If you’re planning to retrofit your fluorescent light fixtures with LED tube lights, it’s important to know if you need to switch out your fluorescent socket as well.


Shunted vs Non-Shunted fluorescent lamp holders

Generally speaking, if you’re using plug-and-play tubes, you should be able to keep your existing sockets. Direct wire LED tubes require non-shunted lamp holders and bypassing the ballast.

Always double check the lamp’s spec sheet before purchase. In cases where the ballast seems to require a different Fluorescent Starter Sockets than the lamp, please defer to the needs of the lamp rather than the ballast.
