High Light Output Control Units for fluorescent lamps

The GPX58E range of emergency control units are specifically designed to produce 50% light output for one hour when using a 58W axial fluorescent lamp.






GPX58E50P All One hour 8 x 4 A/hr cells 58 Watts
The unit complies with BS EN 60598-2-22, BS EN 60924 and SABS 1464: Part 22. Either maintained or non-maintained mode can be used. The unit has an inherent Ni-Cad charging system designed to charge the specified battery pack and must only be used with the correct battery configuration. 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 power (220Vac) has been applied. The unit is housed in a 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 conventional switch start, electronic or dimming ballasts. All units are designed, developed and manufactured in South Africa. Note 1: The emergency lighting duration and light output may vary due to ambient temperature, cell type and lamp manufacturer. Note 2: The unit may be provided for operation from 110 Vac.
