LED Emergency Micro Inverter for factory and field installation

Product Highlights:

  • National Electric Code / UL / cUL compliance – GLL-EBS-20 is tested by UL and certified for both factory and field installation.
  • Power any UL listed LED tube or fixture, up to 25W load, for 90 minutes.
  • Buy American ARRA Compliant – American engineered and manufactured.
  • Polymer Lithium-Ion Battery Technology – The latest in battery technology provides longer cycle life, high energy density, zero memory effect, environmentally friendly with extremely high safety and reliability.

Green Lighting LED proudly manufactures, in the USA, its GLL-EBS-20 Emergency Lighting Micro Inverter.  The inverter is used in conjunction with an LED fixture to create a code compliant emergency lighting fixture.  The maximum load of the GLL-EBS-20 is 25 watts.  In the event of a power failure, the micro inverter begins to provide full emergency power to the connected load for a minimum of 90 minutes.

When normal power is restored, the emergency backup driver automatically returns to charge mode.  Batterycapacity is restored within 24 hours.  The micro inverter does not affect normal light fixture operation and can be used with a switched or un-switched light fixture.  Each unit comes with a test switch and charge indicator panel.

Never be caught in the dark on LED emergency lighting again.  Green Lighting LED offers private labeling and OEM level pricing for all types of emergency LED fixture designs.  Whether factory or field installing, Green Lighting LED provides an inexpensive, quality American manufactured product to the lighting marketplace.

3 Easy Steps: Pick the Right LED Retrofit Kit vs HID / HPS

How do you choose the right LED model to retrofit HID fixtures?  How do you know X watt of LED really equals 400 watt of HID?  You need to spec the right wattage, the right product, every time.  Follow these easy steps to spec the right product every time and close more projects faster with each decision maker.

LED retrofit kits replace HID and HPS lamps, but how do you chose the right model?

3 Simple Steps to Compare & Spec LED to HID Metal Halide

  1. Mean lumens of HID* x Efficiency of Fixture** = Effective Lumens
  2. Match HID fixture effective lumens with LED retrofit kit or fixture
  3. Select the matching LED retrofit kit and quote your customer

3 Simple Steps to Compare & Spec LED to HPS High Pressure Sodium

  1. Mean lumens of HPS* x Efficiency of Fixture** x 0.38 for perceived lumens = Effective (Perceived) Lumens
  2. Match HPS fixture effective lumens with LED retrofit kit or fixture
  3. Select the matching LED retrofit kit and quote your customer

Example: 250 Watt HID high bay project

250W HID = 21,250lm x 0.65 (mean lumen calculation) x 0.65 fixture efficiency = 8,978 effective lumens per fixture

Our 80 Watt LED Retrofit Kit matches perfectly to replace this 250W HID for this example.

Note: Mean lumens vary per manufacturer and each fixture has a unique efficiency value.  While many people use somewhere between .6~.7 efficiency for high bays and .65 to .7 for shoebox fixtures – much higher efficiency reflectors exist.  The above is only an example and exact data is available with each respective fixture.

For many lighting projects, specking the right LED retrofit solution replacing metal halide HID is this simple.  For more detailed comparisons, Green Lighting LED has IES files and can run photometric layouts as a free service for any energy saving project.
