ETC is rethinking emergency power

Date Posted: 3/7/2017


The SC1008 is a branch circuit emergency lighting transfer switch (BCELTS) designed for installations that require emergency control of a single, 20A circuit. 2017 changes to the National Electrical Code (NEC) article 700 clearly define requirements for devices that can be used for emergency transfer of branch circuits.

Most existing products do not meet these fault-current rating and endurance requirements. The SC1008 does.

This BCELTS is designed to transfer one or more lighting loads from one power source to another during a power failure or other emergency situation. ETC's rugged construction and fail-safe circuitry are UL 1008-approved for any North American emergency lighting application where life safety is an issue.  

SC1008 is both UL and cUL Listed and complies with ANSI/NFPA 110. It is also the first BCELTS to satisfy the requirements of NFPA 70.
