Espen Technology, a manufacturer of indoor, LED lighting solutions, has released its 8W EM inverter, as an expansion of its line of emergency lighting inverters. Model No. VEMB8-10V (S), the new 8W EM inverter is suited for a large number of applications, and joins the 5W, 10W, 15W, and 20W models, with many of the same features.
The new 8W model is designed to provide emergency back-up power for the following Espen products, up to 50W:
- TLEDs (Types A, B, and C)
- Commercial downlights
- All retrofit kits
The inverter can provide back-up lighting for 0-10V dimmable fixtures as well as non-dimming fixtures. When typical emergency inverters are paired with 0-10V dimming fixtures, dimmed fixtures during a power outage don’t come on at full inverter power, to meet code-required light levels. The VEMB8W-10V (S) overrides any 0-10V dimming command and forces the luminaire to operate at full inverter back-up power, for safe light levels during a power outage.
Additional performance features include:
- exceptional input voltage range of 120 – 347VAC,
- indoor and outdoor rated enclosure & 13-inch flex conduit
- Up to 50W load
- Self-testing monthly, CEC
- cULus listed to UL924
