LED Operation

12W LED Load @ 10-60 VDC nom.


12 Watts (Constant)


The PoE-CP12-V1A from IOTA Engineering is a UL Listed emergency lighting LED battery pack (LED emergency driver) for Power over the Ethernet (PoE) systems, and works in conjunction with a PoE normal lighting LED driver to convert a PoE normal lighting luminaire to an emergency luminaire compliant with NFPA-101. In the event of a power failure, the PoE-CP12-V1A switches to the emergency mode and operates the existing fixture for 90 minutes. The unit contains a battery, charger, and converter circuit in a single can and is available with different output configurations for individual fixture requirements. The PoE-CP12 will operate an LED array load at 12 watts with constant power at a rated output voltage of 10V-60V. The Constant Power design maintains the output power to the LED array at 12 watts, resulting in no degradation of emergency illumination for the entire run-time.

Sample Specification

Supply and install IOTA PoE-CP12-V1A Constant Power emergency LED driver system as indicated. The emergency driver shall be designed for [Select “Internal” or “External”] mounting to the luminaire including a self-contained, high-temperature, sealed, maintenance-free nickel cadmium battery rated for a 10-year service life. The unit shall be provided complete with an illuminated push to test switch. The emergency driver system shall be UL class 2 certified in accordance with UL 1310 and shall be UL listed for use in damp locations and in enclosed and gasketed fixtures with a temperature range of 0° to 50° C.

The PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) input shall be compatible with IEEE & IEEE 802.3at standards. The unit shall be UL Listed Emergency Lighting and Power Equipment, FTBV, Emergency Light-Emitting-Diode Drivers for field installation. Maximum input power of the emergency driver shall be 4 watts.

The charger shall be current limited, temperature compensated, short-circuit protected with reverse polarity protection. A low voltage battery disconnect (LVD) circuit shall be provided and will disconnect the load and circuitry from the battery when it reaches approximately 80 to 85% of its nominal terminal voltage, preventing a non-recoverable, deep-discharge condition. The unit shall achieve a full recharge in 24-hours.

The emergency driver shall accommodate an LED load with a forward voltage requirement ranging from 10 to 60 VDC. The output voltage sensing shall be automatic and instantaneous with a resulting, inversely-proportional current to maintain constant power to the LED array with an output tolerance of +/- 3%. The unit shall supply the rated load for a minimum of 1 1/2 hours. The output power to the LED load during emergency operation shall be held constant 12 watts from minute one throughout the entire emergency run time resulting in no loss or degradation of the light source during emergency operation.

Maximum remote mounting distance of the emergency driver shall be 50-feet.
