Generator Products

Generators are often employed to back up the normal power supply for important systems, such as lighting. Philips Emergency Lighting offers distinct products created to work with generators: Generator Transfer Devices and the BLCD-20B Emergency Lighting Control Unit for interim illumination.

Transfer Units & Control Devices
The GTD20A and BLCDs work in conjunction with a generator or central inverter system to supply emergency lighting regardless of local light switch position. This means emergency lighting is no longer dependent on expensive night lighting. In fact, you can switch off normal lighting at the end of the day or whenever it’s not needed without jeopardizing emergency lighting operation. These energy-saving devices sense the loss of normal power and, in response, switch the lighting load to a generator- or inverter-fed circuit.

Model Function

GTD

GTD

Function: Emergency Lighting Control Device
Lighting Load : 3A max forfluorescent and LED

The GTD operates as a Emergency Lighting Control Device and functions by transferring both the hot and the neutral on an emergency circuit fed from a 1008 transfer switch.

It is designed for areas in which only one fixture may be needed for egress lighting, such as a stairwell or classroom, or in areas where multiple switches are in use. The GTD supports a lighting load up to 3A.

GTD20A

GTD20A

Function: Transfer Switch or Bypass Device
Lighting Load: 20A max for fluorescent, incandescent, HID and LED

The GTD20A Automatic Transfer Switch/Bypass Device is the first of a kind dual Listed emergency lighting control product for use as a branch circuit emergency lighting transfer switch (BCELTS) and automatic load control relay (ALCR) or bypass device, it works with a generator or central inverter system to supply power to designated loads. It functions as a transfer switch or bypass device and may be installed in areas where a number of fixtures are used and are controlled with a single wall switch, dimming control, occupancy sensor, photocell or any other control device used to turn these fixtures on and off. The device senses the loss of normal power service to the fixtures and immediately switches the load to designated emergency circuit.

The GTD20A allows multiple application and wiring options, including wiring schemes for both line and low voltage dimming. It features universal input and supports a maximum lighting load of 20A. The GTD20A isListed for use as an automatic transfer switch for emergency lighting under UL 1008 and as a bypass device under UL 924.

BLCD-20B

BLCD-20B

Function: Control or Bypass Device
Lighting Load : 20A max for fluorescent and LED; 10A max for incandescent

The BLCD-20B operates as a control or bypass device. The small (1.7” x 2.97” x 1.64”), easy-to-install unit mounts directly onto a junction box and supports a lighting load up to 20A.

The BLCD-20B features auto-select to automatically select the correct voltage (120/277V) and offers a remote testing capability that permits it to interface with fire alarms and security panels.
