If you're looking for a standard solution that provides your building or facility's compact fluorescent lighting system with the appropriate amount of power during an emergency, then please consider our Beghelli brand electronic ballast.
The LUCE-5 model supplies your 2-pin and twin and quad-tube CFL lamps with the necessary wattage and voltage in the event of power failure. With an instant start method, an initial burst of voltage is sent to the lighting unit once power fails, which allows for immediate illumination for up to 90 minutes.
