Ballasts & Drivers
An electrical ballast or driver
is a device intended to limit the amount of current
in an electric circuit.
A familiar and widely used example is the inductive ballast used in fluorescent lamps, to limit the current through the tube, which would otherwise rise to destructive levels due to the tube's negative resistance characteristic.
Emergency Lighting is now selling programable LED drivers that will allow your LED lighting to be dimmable. When your driver goes out let us know the milliamps of the driver and we can program the LED to the exact milliamps.
These items can be placed where they may be splashed with water. Typically they are safe to be used outdoors.
NiCad batteries are useful in applications requiring very high discharge rates because they can withstand such scenarios with little damage or loss of capacity. Nickel–Cadmium batteries are made in a wide range of sizes and capacities, from portable sealed types comparable to carbon-zinc dry cells, to large ventilated cells used for standby and motive power.
Compared to other rechargeable cells, NiCd batteries offer good cycle life and performance at low temperatures with fair capacity low internal resistance. Their true advantage is the ability to deliver practically full capacity at high discharge rates. However, their materials are more costly than lead acid batteries, and the cells have high self-discharge rates.
Emergency Lighting is your best source for NiCad batteries, including rechargeable NiCD batteries. We carry a variety of sizes, from AAA NiCD batteries to the larger F cell NiCD batteries. Our selections not only feature a range of sizes, but also an array of battery configurations. We can even build batteries to suit your need.
Shop our rechargeable NiCD batteries to replace the batteries in your standard electronic devices, emergency lighting and exit signs, solar lighting, and so much more. Use our battery finder to find the battery type and configuration that you need.
