SmartCharge™ applies an intermittent charging duty cycle designed for use with NiMH batteries. This provides energy efficient charging maintenance, reduced operating temperatures and optimum service life of NiMH batteries.

Switch Mode Power Supply
Mackwell patented Switch Mode Power Supply provides total short circuit protection, regulated output and complies with all relevant standards.

Ballast Delay Relay
All versions are fitted with an additional relay to switch off the power to the HF ballast during emergency lighting test.

The LED indicator is illuminated when a charge is flowing to the cells. Flexible 1x0.6mm high temperature orange and pink leads connect the indicator to the module. The indicator requires a 8mm hole.

Lamp Optimisation Link
The selection of the link alters the circuitry within the module thus enabling the module to run the widest range of lamps often with increased lamp performance.

Deep Discharge Protection
The inverter module incorporates deep discharge protection (DDP), to prevent damage to the batteries caused by deep discharge and possible subsequent reverse cell polarity.
Technology Options
DALI AutoTest®
Provides benefits by enabling testing and monitoring of an emergency lighting system either on-site or via an internet connection. DALI AutoTest® is ideal for monitoring larger buildings and multiple sites. The product defaults to standalone AutoTest when not connected to a DALI network.
Relevant Standards
