GlacialLight has announced an emergency backup module for its PL0606 and PL0312 ceiling panel lights and an emergency light version of its TL0606 troffer light. The GL-EM01F emergency backup module installs directly on the PL0606 and PL0312 panel lights and powers the emergency light version of the TL0606 troffer light, providing 90 minutes or more of constant-current power to keep these LED luminaires running in case of building power loss.
Rather than replacing existing drivers, the module installs in addition to the existing LED driver and backs it up when power goes out. This allows these panel lights and troffer lights to dual function as regular and emergency lighting. The GL-EM01F allows building owners to design lighting that works in both regular and emergency use case scenarios.
The module has a reliable 3000mAh lithium iron-phosphate battery that provides 90 minutes of backup power to the LED luminaires, allowing contractors to fulfil NFPA, IBC and local building code ordinances for emergency lighting. With output current customisable from 100mA to 700mA, the emergency light output can be ordered for brighter light or longer illumination.
Designed for safety and reliability, the GL-EM01F utilises a lithium iron phosphate battery, features over current and over temperature protection, and is fully RoHS compliant. Compared to the lithium cobalt batteries typically found in consumer laptop and handheld devices, lithium iron phosphate batteries generally feature longer service lives, better power densities, and more reliable discharge voltages, making them well suited as an emergency backup battery. The module is fully compliant with Canadian and US safety standards cURus 1310 and cURus 924.
