Your busy office park, like most commercial buildings, requires sufficient illumination 24/7 during power failures. This egress illumination prevents accidents and panic when occupants evacuate the building during an outage. Instead of buying separate emergency lighting, double the use of your existing fluorescent lights with our self testing 2 bulb emergency backup ballast .
The REDiTEST B30ST features EOL time-delay circuits that maintain your lamps efficiency even during short hiccups in the power line. The device is rated for indoor Damp Locations for both the United States and Canada and can work in tandem with your 2, 3 or 4-lamp AC ballast. Its also a great replacement transformer for your emergency-only fluorescent or CFL units.

The B30STs best feature is the REDiTEST microprocessor which automatically tests the internal battery readiness. Requiring no personnel, it will schedule and perform 30-second tests every 30 days and a full 90-minute test once yearly. Both tests are required by UL 924 code, so installing these will drastically cut down on maintenance costs.
The B30ST has mounting feet on either end of the metal case to allow for installation on top of an AC-powered fixture or inside an emergency light. Its stylish rouge metal case helps personnel identify it from the normal AC ballast and keeps out moisture and dirt. Input and output lead wires protrude from opposite ends of the ballast.
