    FLUORESCENT EMERGENCY BALLAST
    One or two-lamp emergency illumination 

    APPLICATION
    The BAL3000 fluorescent 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 field-replaceable nickel-cadmium battery, charger and electronic circuitry in one red case. The BAL3000 can be used with most 17 - 215 W (2’-8') T8, T9, T10 or T12 fluorescent lamps without integral starters, including U-shaped, HO, VHO, circline, energy-saving and (4-pin) twin, quad and triple twin-tube compacts. One or two-lamp operation may be selected. It is also compatible with most one-, two-, three-, and four-lamp electronic, standard, energy-saving and dimming AC ballasts. If used in an emergency-only fixture, no AC ballast is necessary. The BAL3000 is suitable only for indoor locations and not for wet or hazardous locations. For information about specific lamp and ballast compatibility, please call the factory. Recommended applications include: hospital surgical suites and areas along the path of egress with high ceiling heights, as well as health care, educational and commercial facilities needing higher levels of emergency illumination.

    OPERATION
    When AC power fails, the BAL3000 immediately switches to the emergency mode, operating either one or two lamps at high lumen output for a minimum of 90 minutes. When AC power is restored, the ballast automatically returns to the charging mode.

    INSTALLATION
    The BAL3000 does not affect normal fixture operation and may be used with either a switched or unswitched fixture. If a switched fixture is used, an unswitched hot lead must be connected to the emergency ballast. The emergency ballast must be fed from the same branch circuit as the AC ballast. The BAL 3000 may be installed on top of or remote from the fixture. The emergency ballast may be remotely installed up to half the distance the AC ballast manufacturer recommends remoting the AC ballast from the lamp or up to 50 feet, whichever is less. Installation is not recommended with fixtures where the ambient temperature may fall below 0°C. A charging indicator light and double-pole test switch are provided. Upon request, a single-pole test switch/monitor plate is provided for remote installation of the test switch and charging indicator light.

    UL AND CODE COMPLIANCE
    The BAL3000 has been tested by Underwriters Laboratories in accordance with the standards set forth in UL924, “Emergency Lighting and Power Equipment,” and is UL Listed for factory and field installation. Emergency illumination time exceeds the National Electrical Code (NEC), Life Safety Code (NFPA-LSC) and UL 90-minute requirements.

    BATTERY
    The BAL3000 uses a field-replaceable nickel-cadmium battery specifically designed and constructed for high-temperature applications. This battery requires no maintenance and has a life expectancy of 7 – 10 years.

    EMERGENCY ILLUMINATION
    Depending on the number (one or two), wattage and type of lamps selected, the BAL3000 produces 1450 – 3500 lumens initial emergency light output. If two-lamp operation is selected, light output is evenly divided between the lamps for better distribution of emergency illumination.

    SPECIFICATION
    Emergency lighting shall be provided by using a standard fluorescent fixture equipped with a Howard BAL3000 emergency ballast. The BAL3000 shall consist of a field-replaceable, high-temperature, maintenance-free nickel-cadmium battery, charger and electronic circuitry contained in one 16 5/16" x 5 7/16" x 1 3/4" red metal case with a 2' length of flexible conduit. A solid-state charging indicator light to monitor the charger and battery, double-pole test switch and installation hardware shall be provided. The emergency ballast shall be capable of operating One or Two 17 - 215 W (2’-8') T8, T9, T10 or T12 fluorescent lamps without integral starters, including U-shaped, HO, VHO, Circline, Energy-saving and (4-pin) twin, quad and triple twin-tube compacts inthe emergency mode for a minimum of 90 minutes. The BAL 3000 shall have 8 Watts of input power and a 57.6 Watt-hour battery capacity and shall exceed emergency standards set forth by the current NEC. The emergency ballast shall be UL Listed for installation on top of or remote from the fixture and shall be warranted for a full five years from date of purchase.
