I160 Emergency Ballast

High Lumen Emergency Ballast for Linear and Compact LED Retrofit (TLED) and Fluorescent Luminaires

By IOTA

  • Overview
  • Specifications
The I160 from IOTA Engineering is a UL Listed fluorescent emergency ballast that allows the same fixture to be used for both normal and emergency operation. In the event of a power failure, the I160 switches to the emergency mode and operates one or two of the existing lamps for 90 minutes. The unit contains a battery, charger, and inverter circuit in a single can and is provided with 2 feet of 1/2'' flex for wiring to the fixture. The unit is designed for installation next to or on top of the fixture. The I160 utilizes AC output to ensure compatibility with new lamp technologies. The unit features lamp selector leads for optimizing light output for designated lamp types. The I160 is suitable for use in damp locations.
