Fluorescent Emergency Lighting Ballasts

Emergency ballasts provide immediate backup lighting when normal AC power fails. In the event of a power failure, these ballasts switch instantly to emergency mode to maintain operation of one or two existing lamps for a minimum of 90 minutes. When AC power is restored, emergency fluorescent ballasts automatically recharge, in preparation for the next AC outage. The BAL emergency ballasts allow the same fixture to be used for normal and emergency operation.

BAL emergency ballasts are designed to operate most single or bi-pin fluorescent tubes, 2-pin or 4-pin CFL’s and fluorescent U-shaped, HO, VHO, energy saving, circline, twin-tube, quad and triple twin-tube lamps.
