EM Terminals in Non-Emergency ArcSystem 4-Cell Pendant Fixtures


ArcSystem 4-Cell Pendant fixtures come in an Emergency and Non-Emergency variant for UL924 operation. In Emergency fixtures, there is a small circuit board in the pendant canopy which detects loss of normal power and sends a signal to the fixture body via a harness that runs through the pendant stem. This board is not present in the Non-Emergency fixture, however, all variants share the terminal strip which connects the harnesses in the stem to the fixture body, and the stems all contain the Emergency harness.

In non-emergency fixtures, this harness is non-functional. However, to keep your installation tidy, the harness can be connected to the fixture end and left disconnected in the canopy end since there is no board to connect it to.
