EMERGENCY LIGHTING FOR BUILDINGS
Emergency lighting is mandatory in workplaces and public buildings. The visible part of the system consists of luminaires, of which there are two main types: Exit lights, which include green exit signs, and emergency lights, which provide general lighting for exit routes and open areas during emergencies. Typically, the exit lights are always on, whereas the emergency lighting luminaires are activated only during power supply failures.
Power backup with or without a battery
Lighting is always backed-up by a reserve power source. Traditionally, a battery has been used for this purpose. Presently, super capacitors are an alternative for batteries and they are used in Teknoware's unique ESCAP luminaires.
A battery or a bank of batteries can be placed in a central location; the system is then called a central battery system. If the battery is in or with the luminaires, the system is called a self-contained emergency luminaire system.
Automatic testing and monitoring
As each luminaire in the system needs to be always ready for operation, it is of utmost importance that the operation of the system is checked regularly. This is also generally a requirement of public authorities. We have several automatic solutions available for this purpose.
