Self-Testing Fluorescent Emergency Ballasts
Product Announcement from Philips Emergency Lighting
Philips Bodine REDiTEST self-testing/self-diagnostic fluorescent emergency ballasts automatically test emergency lighting for 30 seconds every 30 days and for 90 minutes once a year according to code. In addition, they continuously monitor charging current and battery voltage. An LED and audible alarm alert maintenance personnel to ballast status.
Because testing is done automatically every 30 days, building maintenance personnel are not required to manually test emergency lighting each month, thereby saving building owners and operators time and money.
