The TLX range of emergency control units cover all axial fluorescent lamps as well as four pin compact types from 6 to 80 Watts. The following versions provide an emergency lighting duration of either one or three hours:

TLX5/1hr Switch Start one hour 5 x 2 Ahr cells up to 65 Watts
TLX5/3hr Switch Start three hour 5 x 2 Ahr cells up to 65 Watts
TLX5/1hr/E All one hour 5 x 2 Ahr cells up to 80 Watts
TLX5/3hr/E All three hour 5 x 2 Ahr cells up to 80 Watts

The units comply with BS EN 60598-2-22, BS EN 60924 and SABS 1464: Part 22. A safety start circuit is provided that prevents emergency operation until rnains is connected. This enables installation without disconnecting or depleting the batteries. A red light indicates that the batteries are being charged. The unit is housed in a high quality glass sphere reinforced polyamide polymer. This material has excellent high heat resistance and impact strength properties. The emergency light output is sufficient to satisfy most escape route and anti-panic area lighting requirements. The unit can be used with conventional switch start, electronic or dimming ballasts.

Note 1: The emergency lighting duration and light output may vary due to ambient temperature, cell type and lamp manufacturer.
Note 2: Any unit may be ordered in an explosion proof, potted housing (Zone 1 / 2 fitting).

Also available in Li-ion version.
