The emergency runtime for the device is about 90 minutes and once power is restored the ballast begins to recharge on its own.
Universal Input Voltage: 120-277V
Recharge Time: 24 Hour
Operating temperature: 32° to 122°F
Lumen Output: 300-700
Operates: 1-2 florescent lamps
Emergency Runtime: 90 minutes
While the BHD65 has no effect on normal operation, it should be wired to any effect on the normal fixture operation, it's fed from the same branch as the AC Ballast.
