The EXLUX 6408 Series of Emergency Luminaire is equipped with one high temperature, maintenance free, nickel-cadmium battery back-up unit with a life expectancy of 7–10 years. In case of power failure it automatically switches over to battery supply keeping two lamps illuminated at reduced lumen output for a minimum of 90 minutes. When AC power is restored, the luminaire returns to AC supply. When the Red LED indicating light is illuminated the battery is being charged or monitored. It is visble from the outside through the lens.

The EXLUX 6408 Series is also supplied with an AC electronic instant start ballast unit and is available in 2 x 17W or 2 x 32W parallel lamps. This keeps the luminaire functional should one lamp fail. The luminaires also come with a cover interlock switch which automatically de-energizes the luminaires when opening for relamping. The power factor is  .99. The electronic ballast meets ANSI C82.11 standards regarding harmonic distortion.

The EXLUX 6408 Series are designed for hostile and hazardous locations where reliability and rugged performance are critical. The housing is constructed of heavy-duty f berglass reinforced polyester (FRP) with a single piece, low glare polycarbonate lens.
