The EL-USA is constructed from injection-molded, engineer-grade, 5VA flame retardant thermoplastic. White housing is standard. Also available in black housing. Substantial transformation assembly in the US complies with “Assembled in the USA” under the Buy American Act.
EL-USA uses bright 5.4 watt incandescent bulbs. Heads are made with smooth thermoplastic reflectors and plastic lens for optimal light distribution. Lamp heads are on track-and-swivel arrangement allowing lamp heads to be fully adjustable.
Upon failure of the normal utility power, an internal solid-state transfer switch automatically provides uninterrupted emergency operation for at least 90 minutes. The fully automatic solid-state, two-rate charger initiates battery charging to recharge a discharged battery in 24 hours.
Battery - Battery Backup
The EL-USA series is designed with a maintenance-free 6V 4.5Ah sealed lead-acid battery that provides a minimum emergency duration of 90 minutes. Recharge time of the battery is 24 hours. Operational temperature range is 32°F (0°C) to 122°F (50°C).
Standard mounting height of 7.5ft illuminates 1 foot-candle (FC) over a distance of 17ft on a 3ft path of egress and 13ft on a 6ft path of egress. At a mounting height of 7.5ft, multiple units illuminate 1 FC spaced at 18ft for a 3ft path of egress and spaced at 14ft for a 6ft path of egress.
Continuously monitors the AC power, battery supply voltage, emergency lamp and charging circuit. The multi-color LED indicator light will indicate failure and adjust when it has been corrected. This feature will test the unit for five minutes every 28 days and 90 minutes every six months.
Remote Head Capable Option
The remote head capability option allows the EL-USA unit to supply power to up to two additional 6V 5.4W remote heads. The remote heads would then operate on the same emergency mode as the standard units (see Emergency Operation Section).
Dual voltage input 120/277 VAC operation. LED display indicates AC/ON. An external push button test switch allows maintenance personnel to quickly determine the operational status of the unit. Unit offers surge protected, solid state circuitry.
The EL-USA is suitable for wall or ceiling mount. Snap together design allows for quick and easy installation. Conduit mount knockout on top of housing and back plate.
