  • Ignites one T8, T12, 4-Pin lamp
Description

Philips Bodine B90 emergency ballast works in conjunction with an AC ballast to convert new or existing fluorescent fixtures into emergency lighting. The emergency ballast consists of a high-temperature nickel-cadmium battery, charger and electronic circuitry in one compact galvanized case. When AC power fails, the B90 immediately switches to the emergency mode, operating one lamp at a reduced lumen output for a minimum of 90 minutes. When AC power is restored, the emergency ballast automatically returns to the charging mode and delays AC ballast operation for approximately three seconds to prevent false tripping of the AC ballast end-of-lamp life shutdown circuits.

  • Can be used with most 32-40 watt 4' T8, T12 or 4-pin long compact fluorescent lamps without an integral starter, Ubend, HO, VHO, circline and energy saving. Also compatible with most one, two, three or four lamp electronic, standard, energy saving and dimming AC ballasts.
  • Optimized for one-lamp operation
  • Produces 500-600 lumens of initial emergency light output, depending on the type of lamps
  • Suitable for indoor and damp locations and for sealed and gasketed fixtures, including fixtures rated for wet locations

Ballast Type

Magnetic ballasts are a legacy technology and use inductance to transform the line voltage to the voltage required to "fire" or excite the gasses in a lamp. Electronic ballasts use a variety of starting methods, and are more efficient than magnetic ballasts in converting input power to the proper lamp power and operate fluorescent lamps at higher frequencies, resulting in an overall lamp-ballast system – increasing efficacy 15% to 20% over a magnetic equivalent.

Length (in)

Also referred to as "Maximum Overall Length" (MOL). For light bulbs, it measures the length of a light bulb, from the top of the bulb to the bottom of the base or pins and is typically expressed in inches. For light fixtures and ballasts, it applies to the total horizontal length of the item.
 
Length (in)

Width (in)

For fixtures and ballasts, width is the measurement of the total horizontal distance from left to right of the product in inches.
