Guide Information for Electrical Equipment for Use in Ordinary Locations

GENERAL

This category covers exit sign conversion kits, which are parts and/or subassemblies intended for field installation in specific certified exit fixtures (see Exit Fixtures (FWBO)) or exit lights (see Emergency Lighting and Power Equipment (FTBR)). They convert the light source from one type to another (e.g., incandescent to LED), primarily for energy-saving purposes. They have been investigated to determine that when used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, they do not adversely affect the operation of the complete exit sign. Their use is subject to the conditions indicated on the installation instructions provided with the kit.

Conversion kits are of one of the following type designations:

  • Type EFS (Exit Fixture Specific) — A conversion kit intended for use with one or more specific exit fixture(s) identified by manufacturer and catalog number on the kit and in the installation instructions.
  • Type ELS (Exit Light Specific) — A conversion kit intended for use with one or more specific exit fixture(s) identified by manufacturer and catalog number on the kit and in the installation instructions.

These kits are intended for installation into UL-certified products that bear the product identity "Exit Fixture" (for Type EFS) or "Emergency Lighting Equipment" (for Type ELS).

Exit sign conversion kits are intended for use in indoor, dry locations unless marked "Suitable for Wet Locations,""Suitable for Indoor Wet Locations" or "Suitable for Damp Locations."

Exit sign conversion kits containing fluorescent or electroluminescent lamps and marked as being suitable for damp or wet locations are for use in an ambient temperature not less than that marked on the product.
