Dubbed GAU-LI-EMG-48-90-LED-WCM, this lay-in troffer mounted LED light is a powerful failsafe lighting solution for general area lighting systems, commercial and indoor spaces, offering high light output from a compact form factor.

Featuring a battery backup for emergency situations, this 120-watt lamp is constructed of die cast aluminium with a powder coat finish over a chromate conversion coating and runs on common 120-277V AC voltages, which can be found in most mainstream facilities.

For advanced protection in wet locations, the 4×2 lay-in LED lamp is reinforced with IP67 waterproof features and requires a mounting hole to be made in the ceiling or preferred surface.

According to the company’s press release, the battery backup – which has been added for emergency light functionality – will run one bulb at the standard UL suggested 90 minutes after power is lost at 3,500 lumens.

“The light recharges the battery once electrical power is restored,” reads the press release.

“Standard configuration includes a single emergency battery backup that is automatically recharged and kept in a ready state.”

Larson Electronics CEO Rob Bresnahan said the LED will operate at 20% power when switched into battery backup mode, adding that the battery backup unit includes a switched leg for turning the light fixture on/off without kicking the unit into emergency mode.

“One of the great things about this light is the battery backup,” Mr Bresnahan continued.

“This emergency battery backup enables these lay-in troffer LED lights to stay up and running when all power is lost. As soon as power is restored, the battery will automatically recharge itself.”
