EPC-A-2 Emergency Power Control
In the past, emergency lights were kept on 24 hours a day to meet life safety codes. Now, you can use a UL 924 listed Emergency Power Control, Model EPC-A-2, to convert normal light ﬁxtures into approved emergency lights. The EPC-A-2 saves energy and money while ensuring compliance with both life safety and energy codes. During normal operation, the same switch, occupancy sensor, relay panel, or lighting control can switch normal and emergency ﬁxtures on and off simultaneously. During a utility power interruption, the EPC-A-2 automatically bypasses the normal lighting controls, turning the emergency lights ON, regardless of switch position. The EPC-A-2 boasts a universal mount design with ears; allowing the device to be nipple, fixture, panel or box mounted. This enables the EPC-A-2 to adapt to the application requirements.

When the room switch is turned off, the EPC-A-2 will run a 2.5 self-test routine, verifying that the emergency power source was available and that the EPC-A-2, ballast, and lamp(s) are all functioning correctly. This feature eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly manual monthly testing and is approved for this purpose. This also allows the unit to be installed in remote or inaccessible locations, because the unit does not rely on access to its manual test switch. Field selectable via “ATS” slider switch.
