The BAL500 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 hightemperature nickel cadmium battery, charger and electronic circuitry in one compact white case. The BAL500 can be used with one 17 W through 40 W (2' - 4') T8, T10, or T12 fluorescent lamp without integral starters, including U-shaped, HO, VHO, circline, energy saving, and (4-pin) long compact. 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. This ballast is not suitable for use in air handling heated air outlet fixtures, and wet or hazardous location fixtures.

When AC power fails, the BAL500 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.
