Perferm Emergency Conversion Modules

Enhanced lamp striking technology for low mercury dosage lamps

Perferm Emergency Conversion Modules

Enhanced lamp striking technology for low mercury dosage lamps

Key Features

  • Removes ‘pink limbs’ on certain compact fluorescent lamps
  • Combats severely reduced life or the premature blackening of the lamp cathodes in all fluorescent lamps
  • Enhanced lamp striking technology
  • High level of continuous lamp cathode heating throughout the emergency duration
  • Versions available to operate with both switch start and high frequency gear
  • All Perferm™ modules are BSI Kitemarked
  • Tested and approved to EN61347-2-7
  • EMC compliant to EN55015 and CE marked where applicable
  • Incorporates over temperature and charger short circuit protection
  • Available as standard in 3 hours duration, with other durations available to order
  • All modules have battery over discharge protection as standard (DDP) to prevent discharge below 1 Volt per cell
  • Reverse battery polarity protected
  • All modules are supplied with a green LED to indicate correct charging conditions
Lamp manufacturers are committed to reducing or eliminating the mercury used in fluorescent lamps to lessen the impact on the environment when these lamps require disposal at the end of their usable life. These actions are being driven in Europe by the WEEE and RoHS directives, which impose ever lower levels of the potentially hazardous mercury used in lamps.

To help combat some of the problems introduced by these lower mercury levels, including severely reduced life and blackening of the lamp cathodes in fluorescent lamps, Perferm™ modules employ enhanced lamp striking
technology combined with a high level of continuous lamp cathode heating throughout the emergency operation period.

Perferm™ conversion modules are available in various formats to give the end user cost-effective performance and flexibility dependent on the type of mains control gear employed in their luminaires.

The switched supply delay relay within PLR and PHR modules ensure that electronic ballasts have time to reset and will never encounter the “no lamp” condition that can occur when a keyswitch is used to remove only the permanent main feed to the emergency luminaire during testing. Electronic ballasts can ‘lock out’ under these conditions and may require their mains supply to be disconnected for a short period to reset the lamp failure circuitry.

With the increased concern regarding the impact of mercury on the environment, the lighting industry is constantly reducing the amount of mercury in fluorescent lamps. Orbik have developed a range of products (PLRM and PHRM) specifically aimed at these types of fluorescent lamps.
 
  • All ballast lumen factors are shown as worst case
  • All figures are based on an ambient temperature of 25°C
  • All figures quoted assume integral conversions
  • Because of the variability of fluorescent lamps, this lamp and module chart is for guidance only and does not cover all of the available lamp types
  • If you require information on lamps not shown in this table or connection diagrams for our conversion modules, please contact our technical department at [email protected]

Specification / Technical Information

  • Perferm™ technology is an ongoing development involving the latest lamp technology and as such is subject to change as and when further lamps/data become available
  • We strongly recommend that modules incorporating Perferm™ technology are used in emergency luminaires and conversions to provide the ultimate future proofing against lamp evolution
  • Most modules and PCB’s are tested and approved to EN61347-2-7. They are EMC compliant to EN55015, CE marked where applicable and carry the British Standard Kitemark
  • They incorporate over-temperature and charger short circuit protection
  • Mains supply 230V - 6% + 10% 50/60Hz (other supply Voltages are available to order)
  • Output circuitry uses a high efficiency sinusoidal inverter, with a nominal operating current of 1.1A
  • Available as standard in 3 hour operation (other durations are available to order)
  • All modules have battery over-discharge protection as standard (DDP) to prevent discharge below 1 Volt per cell
  • Reverse battery polarity protected
  • All connections are via terminal blocks (supplied with a green LED to indicate charging conditions)
  • Power consumption 8VA
  • Module operating temperature range 0 to 70°C (centre side of case)
