Specialized Emergency Control Units for 220Vac Low Wattage fluorescent & LED lamps.

The GPX-14 range of emergency control units covers all low wattage (<20Watt) fluorescent lamps as well as LED units that are powered directly by 220Vac/50hz. The following versions provide >50% Light output with an emergency lighting duration of either one or three hours: The units comply with BS EN 60598-2-22, BS EN 60924 and SABS 1464: Part 22. Either maintained or non-maintained mode can be used. A safety start circuit is provided that prevents emergency operation until mains is connected. This enables installation without disconnecting or depleting the batteries. A red LED indicates that the battery is being charged and that permanent power (220Vac) has been applied. The unit is housed in an interference free metal housing and is therefore EMI compliant. The unit is protected from any high excess input voltage that may occur naturally or unintentionally by accidently connecting the unit to the incorrect mains supply voltage. The emergency light output is sufficient to satisfy most escape route and anti-panic area lighting requirements. The unit can be used with all lamp types <20W requiring a normal 220Vac/50hz power supply directly on the lamp. All units are designed, developed and manufactured in South Africa.
