Manufacturer Specifications for Emergency Ballasts and Drivers

In the event of a power failure, the driver/ballast switches to the emergency mode and operates the fixture for 90 minutes.

Emergency drivers and ballasts used in ANP products use high temperature, recyclable nickel-cadmium batteries. All drivers and ballasts meet or exceed all NEC, IBC and Life Safety Code Emergency Lighting Requirements.

High Efficiency (HE) models also comply with CEC efficiency standards (CEC-400-2014-009-CMF). CEC Regulations state the following regarding standards for small battery charging systems:
