Green Products

Because of environmental concerns about mercury and the need to comply with standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency, most lamp manufacturers have reduced the mercury content in their products. However, low mercury lamps, while environmentally responsible, have created challenges to emergency lighting, and the lower the mercury content, the more of a challenge they become.

Mercury affects the starting and operating characteristics of lamps in both emergency and normal modes. Philips Emergency Lighting has observed problems such as reduced lumen output and improper color rendering when low mercury compact lamps, paired with fluorescent emergency ballasts, operate in the emergency mode with a DC output. Any emergency ballast that runs a compact lamp with DC could be subject to these issues.

In response to problems associated with low mercury compacts and emergency lighting, Philips Emergency Lighting introduced a line of fluorescent emergency ballasts compatible with low mercury lamps. Our green product line makes it easy for buildings to “go green” without compromising emergency lighting requirements.
