Mackwell Product information

Emergency Modules for Fluorescent

Cerian

Modules provide maintained emergency operation for T8 lamps from 3, 4 or 5 cell NiCd batteries. Cerian modules are fitted with four pole relays to switch all four lamp connections from the ballast to the inverter. The ballast hold off relay switches the ballast off during an emergency lighting test.

Primian-1™

Modules operate a wide range of 4 pin fluorescent lamps and each module is fitted with a lamp optimisation link to ensure the best output and duration across the lamp range.
The 5th pole ensures satisfactory re-starting of HF ballasts after emergency lighting test function. The Primian-1™ modules are also fitted with a link to select 3 hour or 1 hour duration, with appropriate batteries. Built with Deep Discharge Protection as standard.

Primian-2™

SmartStart™ modules operate a wide range of 4 pin fluorescent lamps, and each module is fitted with a lamp optimisation link to ensure the best output and duration across the lamp range. The Primian-2™ SmartStart™ modules are also fitted with a link to select 3 hour or 1 hour duration, with appropriate batteries. (Not including AutoTest, which are supplied for 1 hour or 3 hour duration).

Advanze-1

The Advanze-1 range of modules are designed to run T5 lamps in emergency operation. The module can size is designed to fit in slim gear trays associated with linear lamps. The lamp range has increased with the use of the Mackwell Optimisation Lin™.

Advanze-2

This range of modules are designed to run T5 lamps in emergency operation. The Advanze-2 module is produced in extra low profile can and is designed to fit in slim gear trays associated with linear lamps. The Ballast Lumen Factor delivered by the Mackwell product range is commonly higher than those of our competitors.

This is a consequence of excellent product design and the utilisation of the Mackwell 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. Built with Deep Discharge Protection as standard.

Relion

The Relion module is specially developed for 13 – 42 watt TEL, 24 – 54 watt T5, and 38 & 55 watt 2D amalgam lamps (Not suitable for latest 57 watt lamps). Surface Mount Technology for highest reliability. Available in AutoTest™, with DALI and Potential Free versions. Available in 1Hr or 3Hr duration. Built with Deep Discharge Protection as standard.

Emergency Integrated Modules for Fluorescent

Micro Integrated

The Mackwell Micro Integrated module range is a combined high frequency ballast and emergency lighting unit capable of driving a wide range of lamps in both mains and emergency mode.

The Mackwell Micro Integrated Module will operate one compact or 2D lamp and utilises 3, 4 or 5 battery cells for these lamps (dependent upon the lamp and module combination), which are available as sticks or packs. The unit is designed to use common neutral switched and unswitched supplies.

The use of the latest Surface Mount Technology has enabled the original and highly successful Mackwell Integrated Module to be extended to enable the integrated approach to be used in a wider range of luminaires. Mackwell Extra High Temperature batteries should be used with this product range.

Range includes: D113, D116, D118, D121, D126, D128, D138, D135

Small Integrated

The Small Lamp Integrated range is a combined high frequency ballast and emergency lighting unit capable of driving a single 6W or 8W T5 fluorescent lamp in both mains and emergency mode.

The unit is designed to use common neutral switched and un-switched supplies and is suitable for use with Mackwell Extra High Temperature 2 or 3 cell NiCd or NiMH batteries.

Range includes: SD308, SD208

Integrated UniStart™ Module

A combined high frequency ballast and emergency lighting unit complete and ready to fit into a luminaire. The high frequency ballast operates the lamp in mains mode, until mains failure when the module operates the lamp in emergency mode.

The use of the latest surface mount technology has enabled the original and highly successful Mackwell Mini Integrated Module™ to be extended to enable the integrated approach to be used in a wider range of luminaires.

Range includes: DS42

Batteries to Suit

Nickel Cadmium D type – NiCd D

Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) type D cell 4Ah batteries have been developed especially for Emergency Lighting applications, designed to a high quality to provide a 4 year life as required by EN 60598-2-22 and ICEL1001, when operated within correct the temperature ranges.

The batteries are available in a variety of configurations and are supplied with red and black ‘flying lead’ wire assemblies with either shrouded spade terminals or 2-pin polarised plugs to allow simple push-in connection to our Emergency control modules. For quick and simple installation the batteries are provided with end caps or in some cases mounted on a metal plate.

Range includes: B215, B217, B219, B613, B644, B616, B618, B778, B442, B824, B624, B576, B812, B633

“Sub C” Nickel Cadmium – NiCd C

NiCd C cells offer a reduced charge capacity to provide a smaller package with 1 hour duration.

Mackwell has a range of NiCd Sub C batteries available for use with our portfolio of emergency modules.

Range includes: BS152, BS153, BS154, BT154, BT155, BT156, BP153, BP154

Nickel Metal Hydride – NiMh

Mackwell 4Ah Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) cells offer equal charge capacity to 4Ah ‘D Type’ Nickel Cadmium cells, but in a smaller package, enabling them to be used in smaller spaces.

They are available in both side-by-side and stick formats and provide 4-years life as required by BS EN60598- 2-22 and ICEL 1001, when operated within the temperature ranges specified below.

If the temperature ranges are exceeded, performance and operational life of the cells will be reduced. The batteries are supplied with tag connections and ‘flying lead’ black and red wire assembly to allow simple push in connection to our emergency modules.

We recommend a maximum storage time of three years at an ambient temperature of 25°C. If this is exceeded it will be necessary to complete three charge / discharge cycles to restore full working capacity. If you use a battery pack not supplied by Mackwell, you should ensure that it is correctly rated for the application. Batteries must be securely fixed either by their provided fixing points or end caps as supplied.

Range includes: B914, B916, B902, B903, B904, B905, B906
