BATTERY:The CAP-B is designed with a maintenance free, Nickel-Cadmium battery providing a minimum emergency duration of 90 minutes. An operational 120 minute Ni-Cad battery is available. Recharge time of the battery is forty-eight (48) hours. The operating temperature is from 50°F up to 104° F (10°C up to 40°C).
CIRCUIT: The CAPE is configured with high output, high efficiency LEDs. Standard with 120/277V input. All LED versions consume 2W or less nominal power.
Universal mounting pattern and key hole slots are stamped into the housing providing various mounting options. Ceiling recessed versions are supplied standard with removable steel T-Bar mounting brackets. Field installable chevrons are standard. Recessed version trim plates are held securely in place with two (2) torsion spring clips that allow the face plate to accommodate uneven or angled ceilings and walls. This design leaves no visible screws, nuts or fasteners in the trim plate that would detract from the clean, traditional design.
The CAPE edge-lit exit signs feature a clean and traditional look. The indirect LED illumination evenly lights the acrylic face with crisp, even light. The ultra thin face plate virtually disappears once installed, yet the EXIT lettering boldly distinguishes the path of egress. The wide variety of finishes and mounting configurations available will ensure that the CAPE can be easily matched to your to your project requirements.
The CAP-B is designed to operate on battery power in the event of a regular / mains power failure. Both the battery and charger are completely contained within the standard enclosure. There are no external components and no alterations made to the external dimensions of the standard sign. The CAP-B utilizes a solid state transformer that eliminates the possibility of relay failure due to particle build up on the relay. Status is easily determined via an LED that indicates AC-ON. A push button test switch allows maintenance personnel to quickly confirm the operational status of the exit.
The CAPE has the option for the FME Autotest diagnostic system. Autotest features continuous monitoring of the units main components (battery, charger, transformer, lamps & LED’s) and provides instant visual verification of the status.
The CAPE comes with a 5-year factory warranty. Deliberate damage, misuse, improper installation effectively cancel the warranty
