Emergency Lighting

Capacitive Storage 

With over 2000 Railcars and Locomotives in service or on order this APTA-compliant emergency lighting system uses capacitive power storage technology. It adapts easily to new builds or to existing rolling stock retrofits regardless of age.

We supply:

  • Independent Capacitive Power Storage units which are able to power high-performance LED spotlights for up to 4 hours
  • Ability to achieve full charge after a 15-minute charge period
  • 50,000 – 500,000 mechanical charge cycles (depending on model)
  • Superior replacement technology for traditional NiCad batteries
  • Capacitors rated for 5 – 10 years of functional discharge service life (depending on Model & Environment)
  • Single voltage 28.5, 37.5, 74, 110 vdc, or 120 / 240 vac versions available
  • More than twice the light levels required by APTA throughout the 90-minute emergency interval
  • An emergency lighting task load completely removed from existing car batteries
  • Low-profile spotlights which are available in fixed or fully adjustable versions
  • LED spotlight capability for simpler installation in existing or new fixture lenses
  • Reverse polarity and transient spike protection
  • 200,000-hr minimum continuous operation for an LED system due to purposefully under-driving high-efficiency LEDs
  • 24-month warranty on LED fixtures

All fixtures as a system meet or exceed any combination of these standards:

  • APTA Normal Lighting Standard RP-E-012-99
  • APTA Emergency Lighting Standard SS-E-013-99 Rev 1
  • APTA Emergency Lighting Design PR-E-S-013-99 Rev.1
  • EN 13272 Railway Applications – Electrical Lighting for Rolling Stock in Public Transportation Systems
  • APTA Insulation Integrity Standard SS-E-001-98
  • APTA Attachment Strength Standard SS-C&S-006-98 Rev 1
  • NFPA 130:2010 Flame Smoke and Toxicity Standards
  • FRA 49 CFR Parts 238 and 239 Emergency Lighting
  • APTA RT-S-VIM-020-08 “Standard for Emergency Lighting System Design for Rail Transit Vehicles”
