Econolight T5 Vapour Proof Lamp | Emergency

The Econolite™ 2x28W vapour proof with emergency function is a maintained T5 lamp system offering both energy saving over conventional T8 lamps as well as a standby battery in the event of a power failure or load-shedding. The system charges the battery during normal operation and in the event of power loss, switches over to the 90min battery and powers a single 28W tube @ 28% power (8W) - providing sufficient light for emergency purposes. This lamp is particularly useful where lights are operational for 24 hours.
