Question about Lithonia Lighting Psq500 Power Sentry Inverter Charger

Open Question

Emergency light works, regular light does not?

I have an emergency light power pack that I think is no good. Here's the problem. If I turn off the breaker the battery kicks and the lights come on, however, during normal operation the light fixture does not light up. Is there some kind of ballast in the psq500 that could be interrupting the flow of power while under normal operation? I already replaced the fixtures regualr ballast. Any ideas? Thanks.

    The light acts as though the ballast is failing.  the lights are unusually hot showing that the ballast is still attempting to supply starting power.

Here is the link for Lithonia Lighting wiring diagrams for battery packs:

If your emergency ballast is new and the battery is charged, then you must recheck your wiring and make sure you have wired the emergency ballast correctly and for the right type of ballast.

Hope this helps. Sparkylikes480

Follow the appropriate wiring exactly. There are about 6-8 different diagrams. Find your lamp type and number of lamps. Locate your ballast type (usually instant these days) Quite often these diagrams show a switch on the power lead going to the operating ballast. If it isn't on a switch be sure to wire it in with the lead to the emergency battery ballast.

Emergency brake adjustment


There is an adjustment under the vehicle in the E brake cable. Before this is adjusted the rear brakes should be adjusted to take out the slack in the wheel cylinders, which normally the auto-adjusters take care of but you want to make sure they are working and brakes are set properly.

Wont charge


Inverters convert dc voltage to AC voltage - they don't charge.
If you have a remote/emergency power supply, it has a separate battery charger circuit - apart from the inverter... and it probably has an internal cartrige fuse. If blown, replace and retry.

Kill power to light and emergency single light does not turn on also with power on push test knob and emergency bulb not come on


Hello Ramon, Check the power back (battery cell) as without a functioning battery pack, the emerbency light won't function.

Typically the batery packs will need to be replaced periodically every 4-5 years, depending on the istallation location and ambient temperatures.

When you kill the power to the emergency lighting circuit the PSQ is switched to operate automatically on battery power only. The same thing occurs when you press the test button; it disconnects the lighting from the electric power that keeps the battery charged and ready for service. You might also want to check the bulbs with a test meter (remove the bulbs from the fixture and test with the Ohm setting) While rare that these bulbs burn out, since they aren't usually illuminated often, only during a power disruption/outage, etc.

Here's a link to the Lithonia site with the spec sheets for the PSQ series of emergency lighting products, for your use and reference.

2nd season with 400 watt vehicle 1024 inverter. The


Restating the question - 400 watt inverter is turned on and running with the vehicle turned off.
After starting vehicle the red light of the inverter is on with no power output from the inverter.
If you turn the inverter off then on inverter operates normally.

Solution - this is normal operation - my inverter does the same thing. When you start the vehicle
it draws a lot of current from the vehicle battery which causes a drop in battery voltage. Most inverters have a low voltage input safety and will fault the device.'

If the problem is turn on inverter then the red light starts flashing... I am thinking you
have the same problem as the one I replaced - it broke... I am sure some capicator
or other component in the circuit failed... My solution was to purchase a new one...

Auto xs power station


Hi, i had the same problem and emailed the manufacturer. They suggested that i try to charge it up using a regular car battery charger, simply connect the crocodile clips to the charger and trickle charge for 3 to 4 hours. this worked for me. hope you have same success.
they did say that if this did not fix the problem then i needed to replace the battery, a used motorcycle battery will do the trick.
