The LUCE-10 emergency ballast consist of a high-temperature, maintenance-free nickel cadmium battery, charger and electronic circuitry contained in one 14.2” x 1.1” x 1.2” galvanized steel case. An LED indicator light monitors the charger and battery. A single-pole test switch, and installation hardware are included. The emergency ballast is capable of operating one (1) 14W-32W (2’- 4’) T5 or T8 fluorescent lamps without integral starters at reduced illumination in the emergency mode for a minimum of 90 minutes. The LUCE-10 produces 450 to 500 lumens initial emergency light output, consumes 2.5W of input power, a 9W hour battery capacity. Complies with emergency standards set forth by the current NEC and is UL Listed for installation inside, on top of, or remote from the fixture.
The LUCE-10 features a solid-state charging indicator light to monitor the charger and battery, a single-pole test switch, and installation hardware. Listed for installation inside, on top of, or remote from the fixture.
BATTERY: The LUCE-10 emergency ballast uses a high-temperature nickel cadmium battery. This battery requires no maintenance, and has a life expectancy of 7 to 10 years.
CIRCUIT: The LUCE-10 can be used with one (1) 14W-32W (2’ - 4’) T5 or T8 fluorescent lamps without integral starters. It is also compatible with most electronic and dimming AC ballasts. The LUCE-10 ballast is not suitable for use in air handling heated air outlet fixtures, or sealed & gasketed fixtures, including fixtures rated for wet or hazardous locations. The LUCE-10 also features time-delay and open circuit isolation that enables it to function smoothly with ‘End-of-Lamp-Life’ circuitry in newer AC ballasts. This provides an additional level of unit protection from over-voltage caused by an absence of a lighting load. ?specifications: mechanical The LUCE-10 features a 14.2” x 1.1” x 1.2” durable galvanized steel case. A single-pole test switch and installation hardware are also included.
When AC power fails, LUCE-10 emergency ballast immediately switches to the emergency mode, keeping one lamp illuminated at a reduced lumen output for a minimum of 90 minutes. When AC power is restored, the ballast automatically returns to the charging mode. The LUCE-10 emergency ballast produces 450-500 lumens initial emergency output. During emergency illumination, one lamp is illuminated, even if installed with a multi-lamp AC ballast. Emergency lumen output will be less with a compact fluorescent lamp.
UL and code compliance
The LUCE-10 has been tested by Underwriters Laboratories in accordance with the standards set forth in UL 924, "Emergency Lighting and Power Equipment,” and is UL Listed for factory or field installation. Emergency illumination time exceeds the National Electrical Code (NEC), Life Safety Code (NFPA–LSC) and UL 90-minute requirements.
The LUCE-10 series comes with a 3-year factory warranty. Deliberate damage, misuse, improper installation and/or application effectively cancel the warranty.
