Rugged, injection-molded UL94 V-0 flame retardant, high-temperature polycarbonate housing is available in white, black, gray or gray with white
face with impact-resistant, polycarbonate lens. Universal knockouts on
back plate for wall mount and polycarbonate canopy included for top or
end mounting.
Stencil letters are 6” high with 3/4” stroke, with minimum of 100 ft viewing
distance rating as required by UL924 standard.
Illumination of the VEX-WP Series is achieved with ultra bright, energy
efficient, long-lasting red or green LEDs provide reliable, uniform
illumination. LEDs provide excellent illumination while maximizing energy
efficiency. LEDs are a maintenance-free solution, providing up to 100,000
hours of use without failure.
Dual-voltage input 120 or 277VAC @ 60Hz
Sealed Nickel Cadmium Battery - NiCad (With Battery Only)
Exitronix sealed nickel cadmium batteries are maintenance-free with
a life expectancy of 15 years. Nickel cadmium batteries offer high
discharge rates and continue to perform in a vast temperature range
from 0-40 degrees C. NiCad technology provides long lasting, safe
and reliable performance by utilizing the jelly-roll design and allows a
Ni-Cad cell to deliver a much higher maximum current than an equivalent
size alternative battery. As a relatively larger area of the electrode is in
contact with the active material in each cell, the internal resistance for
an equivalent sized NiCad cell is lower which increases the maximum
current that can be delivered.
Brownout Circuit
The brownout circuit monitors the flow of AC current to the unit and
triggers the emergency lighting system once a set reduction of AC power
occurs. This dip in the voltage will cause many fixtures to extinguish
causing loss of normal lighting even though a total power failure has not
Low Voltage Disconnect
When the battery’s terminal voltage falls below predetermined levels,
the low-voltage circuit disconnects the emergency lighting load. The
disconnect remains in effect until normal power is restored, preventing
deep battery discharge and improving the life of the battery. The
disconnect will also automatically reconnect the load circuit once the
battery voltage returns to a normal value after charging.
Wet Location Rated (Standard)
Wet location rated fixtures can be used in applications where moderate
contact with water can be expected. Wet-location rated products are
designed to be reasonably watertight; they require a seal around the
base, canopy, or bracket to protect the electrical service from moisture.
Cold Location Rated (Standard)
The VEX-WP is cold location rated and is suitable for temperature ranges
from -20 deg C (-4 deg F). This is ideal for colder climates or freezer/
cold room applications.
Guardian Self-Test/Self-Diagnostics - (Option: G2)
The Guardian circuit continuously monitors the operating condition of
the AC power, battery supply voltage, emergency lamp continuity and
charging circuit.
The purpose of this option is to provide visual signaling in response
to a fault at the EXIT sign battery and/or battery charger. If a failure is
detected, visual status will occur immediately via the CHARGER LED
and/or the BATTERY FAULT LED. The LEDs will stay illuminated until the
fault is corrected.
The Guardian circuit also monitors the transfer circuit as well as
performing automatic code compliant testing. The Guardian circuit will
perform a 30 second discharge and self-test every 28-30 days. A 90
minute discharge and self-test is performed every 6 months.
Two-Circuit Operation - (Option: 2CI)
Two circuit operation features for emergency lighting allows the dual input
of power sources for units less battery (AC only). The purpose of this feature is to provide the compatibility of our
emergency units in applications where inverters or alternate back up
power sources are utilized.
Tamper Resistant Hardware - (Option: TRH)
Tamper resistant hardware adds an additional layer of protection to the
unit, preventing unwanted access to the interior of the unit or removal of
the face plates.
The VEX-WP Series is UL listed and meets or exceeds the following: UL
924, NEC requirements and NFPA 101.
Solid-State Transfer
The unit features a solid-state switching transistor which eliminates
damaged contacts or mechanical failures associated with relays.
The switching circuit is designed to detect a loss of AC power and
automatically energizes the lamps. Upon restoration of the AC voltage,
the emergency lamps will switch off and the charger will automatically
recharge the battery.
Overload and Short-Circuit Protection
The solid-state overload monitoring system in the DC circuit disconnects
the lamp load from the battery should excessive wattage demands be
made and automatically resets when the overload or short-circuit is
removed. This overload current protective characteristic eliminates the
need for fuses or circuit breakers for the DC load.
Test Button
Our easily located test button allows for manual verification of proper
operation of the transfer circuit and emergency lamps.
Simple snap together universal design allows for faceplate and backplate
to be fully interchangeable. Mounting canopy is supplied with all signs and
snaps into enclosure with two positive locking tabs.
