Emergency inverters keep your lights on in uncertain situations. Interruptible inverters have a slight delay before power is restored while uninterruptible inverters maintain the power load, without fluctuation, during an outage.
Emergency light ballasts are devices that allow normal fluorescent lights to double as an emergency light by providing battery power to one or two lamps after electrical power is lost. 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.
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
