Emergency ballast

The IQ series all-in-one AC/DC emergency ballasts function as primary ballasts that operate lamps at normal power conditions. Eliminating the auxiliary ballast, they sense any power disruption and automatically switch the ballast to its DC mode and DC battery power source. A replaceable battery pack provides the power necessary for emergency mode and supplies emergency lighting that meets local safety code requirements.
