Outdoor Emergency Application Guide

 Normally OFF Outdoor Emergency Lighting Options

Remote Fixtures
In general, remote fixtures offer advantages such as lower initial costs and better aesthetics compared to typical emergency battery units. These advantages are more prevalent in environments that require special ratings such as wet location and NEMA 4X, or in areas where ambient temperatures can diminish capacity or life. Both occurances are common with the exit discharge.  In many instances, the battery unit can be installed in a normal or conditioned environment with the remote heads located in the areas that require special ratings.  The chart on this page details normally off remote fixtures that may be used in damp or wet locations as well as popular sealed beam recessed remote heads. Lamp type, voltage and wattage can be found on the specific product specification sheets. The stand-alone units listed below can be used to run the remote fixtures.
