Inverter Forces Luminaire to Work at Full Power for Safe Lighting Levels During Power Outage

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.

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
