Emergency LED driver meets FEMA tornado safe room requirements

The unit provides 7 watts of constant power to Class 2 10-60VDC LED fixtures and is UL Classified for both field and factory installation. The Constant Power performance of the ILB-CP07-2H ensures that the power supplied to the LED array remains steady at 7 watts, resulting in a consistent level of illumination for the full runtime.

FEMA guidelines for emergency lighting in tornado safe rooms and shelters require a full 120-minute duration for emergency lighting, rather than the typical 90-minute duration dictated by the Life Safety Code for emergency egress applications. Since normal power is likely to be disrupted in such a severe weather event, FEMA guidelines recommend a stand-alone battery-powered system for providing emergency lighting.

Additional product features include universal 120-277VAC input, maintenance-free long-life recyclable nickel cadmium battery rated for use damp location and enclosed with gasketed fixtures, and a full five-year warranty.
