Toshiba Introduces New Emergency Lighting EL924 Series Uninterruptible Power System

HOUSTON, TX — March 5, 2018 — The Toshiba EL924 Series Uninterruptible Power System (UPS) is designed and manufactured by Toshiba as a solution for UL 924 requirements of power equipment for emergency lighting. The EL924 Series system is a Houston-built UPS cabinet with matching battery cabinets to provide 90-minute runtime as required per UL 924, while keeping to UL 1778 requirements and the Buy American Act of domestic end products.

The emergency lighting market has been trending towards replacing incandescent and fluorescent bulbs with light emitting diodes (LED). These AC LED fixtures require a true sine wave to operate properly as opposed to the modified square waves that are prevalent in many single conversion inverters. Using a large, three-phase, centralized UPS allows for larger sections of emergency lighting to be backed up so that maintenance of battery and equipment is localized to a single system. Maintenance time and cost are reduced as a result.

The EL924 Series system features double-conversion, all insulated-gate bipolar transistors with an easy to navigate local touchscreen interface. State-of-the-art electronic battery isolation circuitry and a robust DC capacitor bank ensure battery longevity, reducing total cost of ownership. The small footprint and total front access mechanical design allows zero rear clearance for reduced site space requirements. The flexibility of top, bottom, and/or side cable entry adds to the ease of installation. The EL924 Series system also comes standard with Toshiba’s RemotEye® 4 multi-protocol UPS manager that provides centralized remote monitoring by utilizing protocols such as Modbus TCP & RTU, BACnet IP & MSTP, HTTP/HTTPS, and SNMP.

"Our team recognized the opportunity to meet the changing demand in the emergency lighting market and have developed a quality solution by customizing existing proven product," said Greg Mack, vice president and general manager of the Toshiba power electronics division. “The EL924 Series will help meet that demand while continuing to expand Toshiba’s capabilities in new markets.”

The EL924 Series system is available in 15 and 20 kVA with voltage ratings of 208/380/400/415/480 Vac in/out.
