Unique to the market, TB-2100 delivers an emergency power supply for EarthTronics Gen II Type B ballast by-pass lamps. The unit serves as an alternative to simply skipping over emergency back-up fixtures and provides a highly-efficient solution. Type B T8 lamps are commonly used for retrofitting fluorescent systems when the ballast is removed from the circuit for increased energy efficiency.
The TB-2100 powers two lamps and installs in place of the existing ballast. The unit provides constant power from its 90-minute rated battery life and recharges within 24 hours of a full emergency discharge. It also comes with an illuminated test switch.
When properly applied with EarthTronics Gen II Type B lamps, the TB-2100 has a 5-watt output, producing 500 lumens and is capable of meeting NFPA Light Safety Code 101 requirements. The solid-state circuitry uses 5 watts during the recharge cycle and consumes just 1.6 watts in normal operation. Its high-temperature nickel-cadmium battery has a 7- to 10-year performance service life.
The TB-2100 operates on either switched or unswitched 120/277VAC power. EarthTronics backs this product with a five-year product warranty.
