Controlled Power Company, a U.S. manufacturer of a full line of commercial, industrial, and medical electrical power solutions, has introduced its SwitchLITE™ Model EZT Automatic Transfer Switch for emergency lighting applications — which allows dimmable lighting fixtures to function as essential emergency lighting.
The SwitchLITE Model EZT (Emergency Zone Transfer Cabinet) is a UL 1008 listed product, designed to transfer four, six, or eight individual 20-amp branch circuits to emergency power automatically when normal power fails — and then back to normal power once it has been restored.
Upon transfer to emergency power, lighting fixtures that are dimmed (or off) are brought to full illumination to provide safe egress. The SwitchLITE Model EZT satisfies the requirements of NFPA 70 as related to Automatic Transfer Systems, and it is compliant with the ANSI / NFPA 110 Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems.
Suited for use in a dimmer rack application, together with an emergency lighting inverter (or standby generator) as the emergency power source, the SwitchLITE Model EZT’s rugged design brings performance and reliability to critical emergency lighting systems. Facilities in which the SwitchLITE Model EZT may be used include theaters, auditoriums, restaurants, casinos, and worship centers. Product dimensions are 20″W x 7.75″D x 31″H.
