AC Output One-lamp operation; T5 and T8 Low-Profile End-of-lamp-life compatible APPLICATION The PEL12 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 battery, charger and electronic circuitry in one compact galvanized metal case. The PEL12 can be used with most 2' through 4' (17 W - 54 W) single pin or bipin fluorescent lamps, including standard, energy saving, HO, VHO, circline, U-shaped and rapid-start (4-pin) long compact fluorescent lamps. Also operates one Philips LED T8 InstantFit lamp: 9290002840, 9290002841, 9290002842, 9290002862, 9290002880, 9290002881, 9290002882, 9290002883, 9290011183, 9290011184, 9290011185, 9290011186, 9290011179, 9290011180, 9290011181, 9290011182. PEL12 is optimized for one-lamp operation (see Table 1). It is also compatible with most single- and multi-lamp electronic and dimming AC ballasts. If used in an emergency-only fixture, no AC ballast is necessary. The PEL12 is suitable for indoor and damp locations and for sealed & gasketed fixtures, including fixtures rated for wet locations. It is not suitable for air handling heated air outlets or wet or hazardous locations. For information about specific lamp and ballast compatibility, please call the factory. OPERATION When AC power fails, the PEL12 immediately switches to the emergency mode, operating one lamp at a reduced lumen output for a minimum of 90 minutes. When the AC power is restored, the emergency ballast automatically returns to the charging mode and delays AC ballast operation for approximately three seconds to prevent false tripping of the AC ballast end-of-lamp-life shutdown circuits.
