Continuously monitored emergency lighting system

Illuminex : 18 June, 2008  (New Product)
Xscape emergency lighting range of products from Illuminex offers the latest luminaire technology with continuous monitoring and significant cost and energy saving benefits
Illuminex is a technology-led manufacturer of intelligent emergency lighting products; the new Xscape family has been created to take full advantage of the latest in solid state light source and battery technologies. The Xscape family automatically self-tests to meet the monthly and annual testing of every single luminaire in the system required by BS EN 5266 part 1, Code of practice for the emergency lighting of premises. The results of the BS 5266 tests are stored in local memory for recovery at a convenient time, either by using the 'Walk-by' data capture capability of a hand-held unit or, in centrally-controlled systems, where each luminaire has a unique address, the data is automatically transferred to the control panel from where it can be recovered for long-term storage on any PC. In addition to enabling the owners and occupiers of buildings to conform to the legislative requirements in a cost-effective way, the new Xscape family gives users performance improvements, a significant reduction in the cost of ownership and a much reduced impact on the environment when measured against current technology.

The family consists of flush and surface mounting standard and mini downlighters for open areas and corridors, bulkhead fittings for internal and external use, surface and flush mounting exit signs, retrofitable inverter kits for existing fluorescent ceiling fittings, central monitoring panels, a PC based Graphic User Interface and walk-by hand-held test/data collection units. The standard downlighters are of plug-in modular construction, enabling a first-fix installation in new build.

All versions are based around a high output solid-state light source that has a life expectancy of more than 60,000 hours - five times that of a fluorescent lamp. They use 98% less energy over their lifetime than current fluorescent tube technology, are supported by lithium ion backup batteries that contain no heavy metals and are managed by embedded intelligence. Every part of the system, the solid-state light source, the battery, battery charger, internal temperature and mains supply is continuously monitored.
