Refer to the below chart for the type of lamp(s) operated and the number of lamps to be operated in emergency mode. (Table 1) CAUTION: 1 2 3 1. INSTALLING THE VEM1300DV (1) Install the emergency ballast in the AC ballast channel or enclosed wireway so the wire leads are not exposed at least 1/2" away from the AC ballast(s). Refer to Fig.1 for typical mounting. 2'-4' T8~T12 Single, Bipin One lamp 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 5'-8' T8~T12 Single, Bipin One lamp Connected Disconnected Two lamp Disconnected 9,10 Switched Fixture HOT AC LINE Unswitch Fixture BLACK WHITE AC Ballast Wiring Diagrams 1,2,3,4,8 BLACK HOT AC LINE WHITE COMMON GREEN (GROUND WIRE) TEST SWITCH & LED CHARGE INDICATOR NOTE: Fig.2 Installing the Test Switch with LED charge indicator WHITE BLACK 120V OR ORANGE 277V WHT/RED RED(+) AC Ballast WHT/BLK WHT/BLK (4) The emergency ballast may be remotely installed up to 1/2 (half)of the distance from ballast to lamp specified by the AC ballast manufacturer. For example, if AC ballast manufacturer recommends up to 25 feet, then the emergency ballast should not exceed 12 1/2 feet. Under no circumstances, the emergency ballast can be remotely mounted up to 50 feet from fixture.

Allow for proper clearance and drill or punch 5/8" hole. Remove the plastic nut and push the Test Switch into the 5/8" hole. Secure the Test Switch with plastic nut. (Refer to Fig.2) Connect the wires as indicated in wiring diagrams on Page 4. Leads Test switch with LED charge indicator 5. LABELS d Emergency Ballast Attach the appropriate label to the Test Switch Plate and attach Re-lamping Label for lamp type and wattage to fixture. The Caution and Re-lamping label must be on the fixture in a readily visible location to anyone attempting to service the fixture. Push to Test Fixture 6. COMPLETE INSTALLATION d When the Installation is complete, supply AC power to emergency ballast and join the battery connector. Test switch with LED charge indicator Drill a 5/8" hole and install Test Switch on the appropriate location on the fixture 2. WIRING THE VEM1300DV (1) Emergency ballast can be used with one or two lamp fixture and operates one or two lamps in the emergency mode. Please see next page "Table 1" showing type of lamps and number of lamps at emergency mode. Then select "Wiring Diagram Number" for wiring. (2) Refer to the Wiring Diagram on the back page (Page 4) for the proper wiring (3) Emergency ballast and AC ballast must be on the same branch circuit. (4) Emergency ballast requires an un switched AC power source (120 or 277 VAC).. (5) When emergency ballast is used with switched fixture, an additional un switched hot (120 or 277 VAC) wire must be run to junction box and connected to the emergency ballast. (Refer to Fig.3 on next page) (6) After installation is completed, supply AC power to emergency ballast and join the battery connector. PAGE 2 OPERATION This emergency ballast is primarily designed to be used with compact fluorescent lamp down lighting fixtures. When AC power is applied, the charging indicator light is illuminated, indicating battery is being charged. When power fails, the emergency ballast automatically switches to emergency power (internal battery), operating one or two lamps at reduced illumination. MAINTENANCE This emergency ballast has integrated test switch and charge indicator. Press test switch to test emergency operation. Allow minimum 24 hours battery charging before conducting one hour test. Recommended periodical test schedule is as follows: 1. For initial testing unit need to be charged about 1 hour, then press test switch to conduct a short discharge test and charge 24 hours for a long term discharge test. 2. Visually inspect the charging indicator light monthly. It should be illuminated. 3. Test the emergency operation of fixture for 30 seconds at 30 day intervals. One or two lamps should be operate at reduced illumination. 4. Conduct 90 min battery discharge test once a year. PAGE 3 One or two lamps should be operate at reduced illumination.
