Hazardous locations require a tremendous amount of care and vigilance. Imagine the possibilities of what could happen if power were to fail. One solution for this potential emergency lighting in case of a power outage in damp area is our Philips Bodine B60 emergency ballast.
During a blackout, the Philips Bodine B60 emergency ballast can quickly switch to emergency mode, while operating one or two lamps at a reduced lumen output at a minimum backup time of 90 minutes. Once AC power is restored, it returns to its initial charging state.
This emergency ballast operates one or two (2’-4’) T8, T10 or T12 lamps, one 17 - 215 W (2’-8’) tubular lamp or one (4-pin) long compact lamp at reduced illumination. It also comes with an on delay timer of 3 seconds, which helps for the avoidance of any electrical trips.
