Our B94CG model works in tandem with your normal compact fluorescent ballast, turning it into a hybrid emergency light! This emergency backup ballast powers a single 4-pin CFL during a power loss so that occupants can safely leave the building.
During an electrical power failure, the B94CG will immediately switch to emergency standby mode, continuing to operate a single, triple or quad CFL at a slightly reduced lumen output. The emergency runtime is 90 minutes per UL 924 guidelines and will re-charge in a about 24 hours.
Dual input voltage: 120/277V
Recharge time: 24 Hours
Operating temperature: 32º to 122º F
Lumen output: 300-750
Operates one PLC18W, PLL36W, PLT42W or Sylvania Dulux equivalents
Emergency Runtime: 90 minutes
The B94CG will have no effect on the normal operation of your CFL fixture, and should be wired to un-switched circuits to ensure the battery is charging at all times. It is fed from the same branch circuit as the AC ballast and can be mounted inside the luminaire or away from it.
This model is not suitable for air ducts, heated air vents, outdoors or in hazardous locations.
This emergency ballast has a charger and solid state circuitry contained in one red steel case. Along with a solid-state charging indicator light, which is used to monitor the charger and battery, it also comes with a single-pole test switch and installation hardware.
Depending on the wattage and type of lamp used, this ballast produces an initial lumen output between 300-750. It can hook up to either a 120 or 277VAC current of 300mA. A maintenance-free nickel-cadmium (NiCd) cell powers the CFL during an emergency and will last between 8 and 10 years.
