CIT Cyanosis LED Tubes

Carinda International's new "True White" LED tubes are engineered to meet the stringent colour requirements for illumination of Clinical Observation areas within Hospitals, Clinics, Healthcare and all other Medical facilities.

Australian Standard AS/NZS 1680.2.5 requires that the Colour Temperature (CCT) must be between 3300K and 5300K, and calculated Cyanosis Observation (COI) is under 3.3. Carinda's "True White" LED Tube is fully compliant with CCT of 3914K and COI of 2.5

State of the art LED and innovative driver technologies produce exceptional lighting performance and power savings of around 55% compared to existing "Cyanosis" type fluorescent tubes. Typically the total power will be reduced from around 42W to only 17W per tube.

Carinda's Clinical Observation range utilises specially engineered "True White" LED chips with exceptionally high Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of over 90. Using all white chips produces significantly higher efficiency than other LED products that must include additional red LEDs to compensate for the poor CRI and COI performance of their inferior white LEDs.


  • Shatterproof polycarbonate diffuser & end caps.
  • Fully insulated, with no safety risk from exposed metal parts as used in other LED tube products.
  • Internally fused, surge protected and supplied with a fused starter replacement.
  • Diffuser, End Caps and PCB manufactured from UL94 Listed Class V-0 Self-Extinguishing materials.


Carinda's CIT Series has been fully tested in NATA-accredited laboratories and certified compliant with:

  • AS/NZS 60598.2.1:2014 - the new LED Safety Standard
  • AS/NZS IEC 62471:2011 - Photobiological Safety (Group 0, No risk)
  • AS/NZS 1680.2.5:1997 - for Cyanosis Observer Index 

The CIT series carries a Certificate of Suitability from NSW Fair Trading.
