Product Description


Your high-rise office has the best view of the downtown area, and you can see for miles and miles. But what you don't have is enough emergency lighting to allow building occupants a safe egress during a blackout.  Rather than buy expensive 4-hour emergency luminaires, get our extended runtime 1 bulb emergency ballast from Philips Bodine.

The B54 features solid-state switching circuitry and end-of-life lamp life protection that extends your lamps life. But the main selling point is its high-capacity nickel cadmium battery cells which will power a single T8, T12 or CFL downlight for up to 4 hours! This extended runtime far exceeds the UL-required 90-minute runtime and is ideal for skyscrapers where occupants take longer to reach safety.

Who you gonna call? The ballast guys!
