GlacialLight GL-EM01F acts as emergency backup power module for LED lights

July 17, 2015
The GL-EM01F provides 90 minutes or more of constant-current backup illumination when power goes out

Taipei, Taiwan – GlacialLight, the diversified LED technology provider, announces an emergency backup power module for its PL0606 & PL0312 ceiling panel lights and an emergency light version of its TL0606 troffer light. The new GL-EM01F emergency backup power module installs directly on the PL0606 and PL0312 panel lights and powers the emergency light version of the TL0606 troffer light, providing 90 minutes or more of constant-current power to keep these LED luminaires running in case of building power loss.

Dual function illumination as regular and emergency lighting
Rather than replacing existing drivers, the GL-EM01F installs in addition to the existing LED driver and backs it up when power goes out. This allows these panel lights and troffer lights to dual function as regular and emergency lighting. Instead of buying both regular and emergency lighting, the GL-EM01F allows building owners to design lighting that works in both regular and emergency use case scenarios.

90 minutes of backup illumination
The GL-EM01F has a reliable 3000mAh lithium iron-phosphate (LiFePO4) battery that provides 90 minutes of backup power to the LED luminaires, allowing contractors to fulfill NFPA, IBC and local building code ordinances for emergency lighting. With output current customizable from 100mA to 700mA, the emergency light output can be ordered for brighter light or longer illumination even beyond the required 90 minutes.

Safe and reliable lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries
Designed for safety and reliability, the GL-EM01F power module uses a lithium iron phosphate battery, has over current/over temperature protection, and is fully RoHS compliant with no hazardous materials used in its manufacturer. Compared to the lithium cobalt batteries typically found in consumer laptop and handheld devices. Lithium iron phosphate batteries generally feature longer service lives, better power densities, and more reliable discharge voltages, making them well suited as an emergency backup battery. The GL-EM01F is fully compliant with Canadian and US safety standards cURus 1310 and cURus 924.
