Espen Technology continues to expand it Sentinel family of emergency solutions for LED lighting.  The Sentinel Family includes:

  • Type A emergency ballasts for use with existing fluorescent ballasts,
  • Type B emergency inverters for use with line voltage TLEDs or fixtures,
  • Type C emergency drivers for use with encased LED drivers, and
  • Stand-alone emergency back-up kits.

One of the most recent EM solutions added to the Sentinel family is an LED emergency driver model # VEMB15W-10V (C).  It is an emergency lighting inverter, specially designed to operate with Espen’s commercial downlights or other 0-10V dimming fixtures, up to 15W.

“This emergency driver is unique in that it allows the fixtures to be on, off, switched, unswitched, or dimmed without affecting emergency operation,” stated John Clancy, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Espen.  Clancy added, “This LED Emergency Driver overrides any 0-10V dimming signal when it’s triggered, ensuring full emergency mode light output.”

Most Sentinel emergency battery back ups consist of electronic circuitry, lithium-ion battery, “ON” LED indicator, push-to-test switch, and a charger, all enclosed in a steel case.  Espen emergency solutions come with a 5 year warranty.

The new LED emergency driver for Espen’s commercial downlights and other 0-10V fixtures <15W. Model # VEMB15W-10V (C).
