All P4 emergency lighting control gear and luminaires identified with the letter ‘S’ include an automatic self-testing function compliant with the EN62034:2012 standard. Every 8 days a 30 second functional test is performed automatically to check the functionality of the unit, the lamp (LED or fluorescent). Full discharge tests are also performed during each 12th activation of the 8-day test, to check the battery capacity. Each full duration test is followed by a complete discharge of the battery to avoid memory effect and to ensure battery reactivation.
