Tridonic Launch EMpowerLED Basic

New from Tridonic is the EMpowerLED range which provides basic emergency lighting functions and mains operation all in a compact package.
EMpowerLED BASIC FX 80w AND EM powerLED CPS FX 80W are integrated with Tridonic’s CORRIDOR FUNCTION (sCF) all combined in a low profile casing with a cross section of only 21mm x 30mm for easy integration into slim LED luminaires. The units can be used in a wide range of LED applications with an output power of up to 80W and both products offer excellent energy savings thanks to the integral sCF function.
The combined EM powerLED BASIC FX 80 W module not only enables LED modules to be operated from the mains supply but also provides simple emergency lighting functionality from a local battery. It covers a power range from 25W to 80 W and the output current can be set via the Tridonic i-Select system in 25 mA steps between 150 mA and 500 mA.
The LED emergency lighting unit is suitable for a wide range of LED modules with forward voltages from 50 to 230 V. In mains operation the integrated sCF, in combination with a presence sensor, enables the lighting level to be reduced from 100% to 10% in the absence of people. This reduces energy consumption and leads to considerable cost savings.
In emergency lighting mode the operating time can be set between one and three hours via a jumper. Standard output or high output for emergency lighting can also be selected via a jumper and integrated power control ensures maximum output for the required operating time in an emergency.
The CPS version, EM powerLED CPS FX 80 W, has the same electrical parameters but is designed for operation on both AC mains and central DC battery systems. In emergency lighting mode, from the central system, a lighting level of 100% or 10% can be set at the output. Depending on the application, the size of the central battery can therefore be reduced or, if required, a maximum light level can be achieved. The same simple corridor function sCF is available to reduce power in the absence of people.
