Emergency ballasts can be tested remotely

RCT Series fluorescent emergency ballasts feature remote control testing. Designed with programmed 30-sec (monthly) and 90-min (annual) test sequences, RCT checks ballast operation in accordance with National Electrical Code requirements. Depending on fixture type, the ballast can be tested from up to 32-ft away, making it safe and easy to stay in compliance. The Bodine Co.; www.bodine.com
