Emergency light drivers

Tridonic, emergency lighting, driver

Tridonic has launched the second generation of the 3-part EM series of emergency light drivers for linear and compact fluorescent lamps. It enables the standard product portfolio to be halved and stockholding costs to be reduced. All modules in the second-generation series comply with standards such as IEC 62034 and IEC 62386, ensuring future proofing for installation.

The length of the housing has been reduced from 280 mm to 230 mm, enabling emergency light drivers to be more simply installed in linear and compact fluorescent lamps.

The duration of emergency lighting (1 to 3 h) can be directly set via a jumper on the emergency light unit.

In addition to standard variants, units are available with a special loading algorithm for NiMH batteries, increasing their life and reliability.

There are three versions.

EM Basic enables fundamental emergency light functions to be implemented and manually tested.

EM Selftest features integrated self-test capability, with results displayed via indicator LEDs.

EM Pro enables tests for all devices to be individually set via DALI. Results are displayed with indicator LEDs and can be centrally documented.
