Self-test line expands to LED emergency drivers
Introducing self-testing versions of the BSL310LP & BSL17C-C2

The Philips Bodine BSL310LPST and BSL17C-C2ST Emergency LED Drivers are the automatic solution for testing emergency operation in LED fixtures. They are the first emergency LED drivers in our popular self-test line.

Manually testing emergency lighting can be challenging, especially when multiple fixtures are involved or fixtures are located in hard-to-access locations. However, regular testing is essential. The low-profile BSL310LPST, designed for linear LED strip fixtures, and the BSL17C-C2ST, ideal for downlight fixtures, automatically conduct tests of emergency operation monthly (30 seconds) and annually (90 minutes), in accordance with code.*



In addition, they constantly monitor their battery voltage. If a problem occurs during testing or monitoring, a flashing LED indicator light alerts maintenance personnel.

Both self-testing/self-diagnostic emergency drivers support emergency lighting for a minimum of 90 minutes whenever normal AC power fails. Both are UL Component Recognized for factory installation only.
