Your electrical company has been awarded a big contract to retrofit the emergency fluorescent lighting in City Hall. You open up one of the older T12 fixtures and find a Bodine model B60U. You do a google search and call your go-to vendors but they all say its been D-Listed! Lucky for you, we got you covered with the BDL60U 700 lumen universal voltage emergency ballast.
Bodines R&D teams have made significant changes to the older B60U, employing the latest digital technology into a shiny red case thats also not bad to look at. The BDL60U is compatible with newer energy-saving CFL and linear fluorescent AC ballasts as well as older electromagnetic models. It also has end-of-lamp life (EOL) time delay circuits which prevents the AC ballast from shutting down when the bulbs lose power during brief power delays or hiccups in the grid.

When you replace those outdated B60Us with the newer Bodine equivalent, you'll be saving your client lots of time, money and heartache. It includes a double-pole LED battery indicator and test switch that locks into the fixture. It will flash whenever there is a fault in the battery, immediately calling the attention of your client's maintenance team.
The BDL60U comes in a shiny red metal case that encloses the circuitry and helps identify it from the normal AC ballast. The device should not be used in explosive industrial environments or air handling ducts. It has the same mounting center and dimensions as the outdated B60U, making it the perfect crossover unit.
