ELCD 1008

Evenlite’s emergency lighting control device ELCD 1008 is a UL-listed, Branch Circuit Emergency Lighting Transfer Switch (BCELTS) which transfers AC power between two non-synchronous power sources (emergency and normal) to the emergency lighting loads. Coupled with our comprehensive line of emergency lighting inverters, the ELCD 1008 can help turn any lighting fixture into a life-saving emergency egress light source. It is particularly suited for use with line-voltage dimming but can handle all types of lighting loads including 0-10V/DALI dimming with its built-in, auxiliary, low voltage relay, and is fully compliant with the latest 2017 version of the National Electrical Code Article 700. A durable, rugged steel enclosure with a powder-coated finish, coupled with cutting-edge technology and flexible installation features, all combine to make the ELCD 1008 a superior choice above other lighting control devices.
