Standalone fully automatic self-testing emergency lighting in accordance with ATS type PERC classification, as classified by BS EN 62034.
Luminaires and signs incorporate self-contained emergency lighting operation with built-in standalone self-testing in accordance with ATS type S, as classified by BS EN 62034.
Luminaires and signs automatically carry out testing in excess of the requirements of BS EN 1838 / BS 5266 Part 7. A self-testing programme embedded in the microprocessor built into the inverter / driver modules automatically initiates and controls tests of the emergency lighting unit and provides status indication through a single multi function bi-colour LED indicator. A sounder in control modules operates for 10 seconds every hour until the fault is rectified reinforces fault indication . The sounder may be deleted as an order option.
Nominal Test Cycle – To ensure that adjacent units do not test simultaneously, all test sequences programmed into the integral microprocessor controllers are randomly set during production to test up to +12 hours from a nominal eight day cycle.
Eight days after an uninterrupted mains supply is connected to control modules, a fully rated duration commissioning test is automatically carried out, checking both lamp and battery capacity, followed by continued discharge of the connected battery to a preset deep discharge protection point, after which it is automatically recharged.
Eight days after the commissioning test a brief functional test is automatically carried out checking that the emergency lamp operates
from the connected battery. Every subsequent nominal eight-day period, a further brief functional test is automatically carried out to check that the emergency lamp operates from the connected battery.
After completing 10 consecutive functional test cycles, units automatically carry out a rated duration test to check both lamp operation and battery capacity. The connected battery is then automatically fully recharged. This cycle is repeated until the 44th test when a full duration test with additional battery training is carried out.
Once the mains supply is reconnected after an interruption of greater than 5 minutes, the connected battery will be fully recharged for 48 hours and test cycle will resume. A test cannot be carried out within 24 hours of the previous test or a mains failure exceeding 5 minutes.
To comply with the requirements of BS 5266 the indicator LED status shall be manually recorded at least monthly.
