Redcap tubes

Batteries Plus recently added the Energy Focus RedCap® T8 Emergency Battery Backup to its long list of commercial lighting solutions. This high-performance, self-ballasted tubular LED (TLED) can be used in any fixture for both normal operation and as an emergency backup. This all-in-one solution is the perfect way to save on your commercial energy costs, while reducing your labor and space requirements.

All-in-One Regular & Backup Lighting

The RedCap Emergency Battery Backup T8 LED lets you turn any lighting fixture into an emergency system. The lighting tube has its own integrated, rechargeable nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) batteries, charger, discharger and indicator light. This all-in-one design eliminates the need for an external battery pack, helping you to conserve space. They're also much safer. Traditional backup lights rely on external battery packs, which can get very hot during operation. The RedCap mitigates the risk of fire by running on its own internal batteries, which eliminates the need for additional wiring.

The tube functions as a normal single-ended lamp, providing a brightness output of 1595 lumens and 145 lm/W (lumens per watt) efficiency. During a loss of power, the light switches over to emergency mode, providing a minimum of 90 minutes of backup lighting. In backup mode, the RedCap maintains an initial battery light output of 1200 lumens and a maintained output of around 600 lumens. After the emergency is over, the light's internal batteries will automatically recharge themselves once the light is turned off.

Simple Direct Wire Installation

The RedCap Emergency LED is easy to install and can be used in any fixture thanks to its direct wire installation. The light features a simple plug and play design that works with your existing ballasts, even if they're made for fluorescent bulbs. That means no rewiring and no additional bulky ballast is required, saving you both money and facility space. You'll also save on installation time, since each light only takes about 15 minutes to install.

Additional Advantages of Using the RedCap Emergency Battery Backup Light

The RedCap Emergency Battery Backup Light is the first integrated battery backup TLED approved by the Underwriters Laboratories  . Each tube is engineered to function in extreme temperatures ranging from -20 to 50 degrees C (-4 to 122 degrees F). Plus, they also come with a 5-year warranty. Order your RedCap LED tubes in three different color temperatures: 3500K, 4000K and 5000K.
