Tridonic has further developed its emergency lighting units with the launch of the new generation EM converterLED BASIC MH/LiFePO4. The low-profile housing now supports not only NiMH but also LiFePO4 batteries and operates with intelligent battery management.
The new generation EM converterLED BASIC MH/LiFePO4 emergency lighting units in the low-profile housing has been designed for luminaires with single battery systems. In addition to nickel metal hydride batteries (NiMH), the units can now also be operated with lithium iron phosphate batteries (LiFePO4). Smart battery management ensures that the right charging algorithm is used for the particular battery type. The batteries therefore achieve their optimum operating life and at the same time the maintenance requirements are reduced.
There are versions available for LED modules with voltages of up to 50 V (SELV), up to 90 V and up to 250 V, which means that the emergency lighting units can be used with a high degree of flexibility over a wide range of voltages. They can be combined with all dimmable and non-dimmable constant-current LED drivers. The rated operating time is one or three hours and can be set via Duration Link. The output power remains constant.
The units operate in standby mode and are designed for manual testing. An optional test button is available for checking the function of the unit. The expected life is four years for NiMH batteries and four to eight years for LiFePO4 batteries. The manufacturer provides a guarantee of one to three years. The life of the lighting unit is 50,000 hours. The manufacturer provides a 5-year guarantee for the emergency lighting unit.
