    Bodine - Emergency Lighting

    Innovative design changes the emergency lighting landscape

    November 2020

    Bodine launches the new BSL06M5 designed to simplify installation and save time and money

    The new Bodine BSL06M5 6W emergency LED driver is the first of its kind emergency solution in a compact metal housing, designed for space-limited LED applications and easily installs directly to the junction box.


    With the new compact design and the included plenum rated metal test switch assembly, BSL06M5 provides a greater ease of installation by removing the need for conduits and mounting bracket normally found in traditional emergency LED driver installations. The color-coded, poke-in terminals also enhance wiring accuracy and eases installation.


    The BSL06M5 comes in two variations: bottom wire entry/stud mount and side and bottom wire entry/no studs. Both come with the plenum rated metal test switch assembly.
