The BAL1400 fluorescent emergency ballast works in conjunction with the AC ballast to convert new or existing fluorescent fixtures into emergency lighting. The emergency ballast consists of a high-temperature nickelcadmium battery, charger and electronic circuitry in one compact red case. This ballast can be used with most 17W through 215W (2' -8') T5, T8, T9, T10, or T12 fluorescent lamps without integral starters, including U-shaped, HO, VHO, circline, energy saving, and (4-pin) long compacts. One or two lamp operation may be selected. It is also compatible with most 1, 2, 3, and 4-lamp electronic, standard, energy saving, and dimming AC ballasts. If used in an emergency-only fixture, no AC ballast is necessary. The BAL1400 is suitable for use in indoor fixtures EXCEPT air handling heated air outlets, and wet or hazardous location fixtures. For information about specific lamp and ballast compatibility, please call the factory.
When AC power fails, the BAL1400 immediately switches to the emergency mode, keeping one or two lamps 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.
