UL Listed. Initial Light Output 350-450 Lumens. For damp locations. Convenient code compliance. End of lamp life compliance. Recharging time 24 hours. Philips Bodine suggested replacement for BDL100.
When AC power fails, the B100 immediately switches to the emergency mode, operating one lamp at a reduced lumen output for a minimum of 90 minutes. When AC power is restored the emergency ballast automatically returns to the charging mode and, using a patented circuit, delays AC ballast operation for approximately three seconds to prevent false tripping of the AC ballast end-of-lamp-life shutdown circuits.
The B100 can be used with most 32-40W, 2'-4', T-8, T-10, T-12 or 4-pin long compact fluorescent lamps without an integral starter, including U-shaped, HO, VHO, circline and energy saving. 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.
Safety Notices & Warnings
The B100 emergency ballast works in conjunction with an AC ballast to convert new or existing fluorescent fixtures into emergency lighting. The emergency ballast consists of a high-temperature nickel-cadmium batter, charger and electronic circuitry in one compact red case.
