Visibility, brightness and long life are very important factors that should be thought about when purchasing and exit sign. Light emitting diode or LED exit signs & emergency lights have proven to be successful in the reducing electricity consumption by up to 85%. LED exit signs can save money and power while still emitting considerable amounts of light.
Emergency drivers provide constant power output to the load during emergency mode operation. Designed to be operated as NORMALLY-ON, NORMALLY-OFF or SWITCHED-LOAD. Suitable for installation inside, on-top, or in remote mount of the fixture.

These ballasts operate for a minimum of 90 minutes in a situation where electricity is lost, the same length of time that emergency lighting fixtures normally operate.
Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
A nickel metal hydride battery, abbreviated NiMH or Ni–MH, is a type of rechargeable battery. A NiMH battery can have two to three times the capacity of an equivalent size NiCd, and its energy density can approach that of a lithium-ion battery.
Title 20 is part of the CEC's Appliance Efficiency Regulation and California Code of Regulations that requires
manufacturer certification of "self-contained” lighting control devices in California.
"Self-contained” lighting control devices are defined as discrete lighting control devices that can perform their
designed function without the requirement of being connected to additional devices.
Common devices that may fall under the category of "Self-contained” include:
- Self-contained Automatic Daylighting Controls
- Line powered Occupancy Sensors
- Line power Vacancy Sensors
