PowerPro EL100XA

Single Phase Input & Output Static Inverter

500VA - 3kVA

The PowerPro EL ranges are Static Inverter Systems designed specifically for emergency lighting applications according to European BS EN50171 specifications.

The PowerPro EL100XA Series is a range of Static Inverters manufactured with the state of the art PWM and IGBT technology producing microprocessor-controlled pure sinewave output for critical emergency lighting loads.

  • Single Phase Input & Output
  • 500VA - 3kVA

The significant advantage of using PowerPro EL Static Inverters for Emergency Lighting is the ability to supply tightly regulated and controlled sinewave power to a wide range of normal functional or decorative mains luminaires as emergency fittings.

As an expansion to the standard 100 series, the XA range allows for an internal self-contained battery system capable of providing the standard Emergency Lighting 3-hour autonomies. With the advantage of wall mounted and stand-alone options the XA range completes the EL series with a fully encapsulated product for those lower-rated requirements.

EL100 models have single-phase rectifiers with "Soft Start" control incorporating thyristor-controlled bridge circuitry to limit inrush current and prevent overloading marginally rated mains supplies. These models provide an excellent solution for, single phase loads and can also reduce the need for extensive re-cabling during installation.
