MODE OF OPERATION

  • Non-Maintained: Load is not normally energised but upon mains failure it is energised via the battery. This is AC and DC output.
  • Maintained: Load is energised at all material times via lighting transformer and upon mains failure via the battery. This is AC and DC output respectively.
  • Floating: Load is supplied from permanently connected battery/charger. This is DC output.

LOAD

The battery systems should not be fully loaded and so as to ensure maximum battery life we would recommend the design load of the system to be up to 80% of the maximum rating.

CABLE SIZES

Volt drop in cable runs must be calculated before deciding on the systems voltage. Fire protected cables must be used, we would recommend that you consult the appropriate experts if in doubt.

BATTERY VOLTAGES

24, 50 and 110v are the nominal voltages generally available and utilised. 240v is appropriate on large installations where volt drop and current levels need to be kept within certain limits.

BATTERY TYPES

  • Valve Regulated Lead Acid
    State of the art sealed lead acid technology using a design where the acid is immobilised in a sponge like material. During the life of the battery there is no loss through gassing as cells are completely sealed.

    Service life up to 25 years.
  • Plante Lead Acid
    High performance cells, exceptionally reliable trouble free service when well maintained. Easy to check, low maintenance the cells retain 100% capacity throughout their life and provide excellent performance at high or low levels of discharge.
    Service life up to 25 years

CENTRAL POWER SUPPLY SYSTEMS
(CENTRAL BATTERY SYSTEMS)

Central Power Supply Systems (Central Battery Systems) provide the emergency power to a number of connected (slave) luminaires. The Central Power Supply Systems (Central Battery Systems) should be connected to the luminaires via a fire protected cable as specified in BS5266.

Due to the complex nature of Central Power Supply Installations (Central Battery Installations) it is strongly recommended that the complete installation is reviewed by a competent person, fully trained in such installations.

Central Power Supply Systems are deemed to comply with the requirements of the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997 if:

  1. They are designed and manufactured in accordance with the appropriate product standard prEN 50171.
    or
  2. Checked and validated by a competent person as fit for purpose and installed in accordance with the requirements of BS5266.

ICEL provides a scheme of product registration for Central Power Supply Systems (Central Battery Systems), ICEL 1009, assuring users that products carrying the ICEL registration mark, produced by the registered organisation, have been designed in accordance with the

 requirements of prEN50171, batteries are correctly specified to achieve the full rated discharge for their design life and that the equipment has been manufactured in a facility operating a suitable scheme of quality assurance.

SYSTEM DESIGN

The following are guidelines only but would normally reflect the basics of a well designed system. Your major requirement is to activate the emergency lighting in either local or complete mains failure.

  • A non-maintained system would utilise sub-circuit monitors, this ensures via a series of relays, that all emergency lighting luminaires would be activated wherever failure may be.
  • A maintained system is quite simply energised at all material times therefore the luminaires are illuminated irrespective of their condition.
  • A maintained system with hold off relays allows you to illuminate certain local areas of the building upon mains failure whilst the remainder operates under mains healthy conditions. In a complete mains failure all luminaires would be active in the emergency mode.
  • A maintained AC/DC system with conversion modules housed within chosen luminaires. The luminaire then operates in mains healthy and to a reduced level of brightness in emergency mode.
  • A static inverter runs conventional mains fittings at full brightness under mains healthy or emergency operation

Lumen EX

The Lumen Ex range of 8-watt emergency exit signs offers a slim, discreet yet cost effective solution to meet the requirements of emergency exit signs. The sign is particularly suited where there is limited space above a door. The large ‘downlight’ panels allow illumination at floor level.

GN/LED/CONV                  3hr Non Maintained LED Emergency – Self Test

The significant advantage of using a Static Inverter System for emergency lighting is that it allows the use of a wide range of normal functional or decorative mains luminaires as emergency fittings. The system eliminates the need for a separate low voltage system or self-contained luminaire emergency lighting installation. They are particularly useful where high level light output is required such as that required for high risk task areas.

Our Static Inverter Systems are able to provide the following input and output configurations:

  1. Single Phase Input : Single Phase Output
  2. Three Phase Input : Single Phase Output
  3. Three Phase Input : Three Phase Output

On Mains failure, the system converts DC power from the central battery to AC output. Our systems allow the use of our modern energy efficient luminaires, while our on-line ‘NO BREAK’ inverter systems enable the use of high-pressure discharge lighting. Although not generally recommended for emergency lighting, discharge lighting is particularly useful for standby lighting applications where high light levels are required, e.g. high bay lighting. An emergency lighting design can be combined with the general lighting scheme to provide a cost effective, unobtrusive lighting installation.

Our systems are designed to meet the requirements of the European standard EN50171. Except for our Low Power ‘LP’ range (up to 1500W-hours as defined by EN50171) which produce a quasi-square wave output, all our Static Inverter systems produce a true sinusoidal AC output thus reducing heat in cables and load, extending luminaire life and saving money. They are electrically highly efficient and therefore provide the benefit of low running costs.

Because there is no restriction on the type of mains fitting that can be used means our systems are even suitable for high-pressure discharge lamps. Lighting levels will remain higher than with self-contained luminaires either indoors or outdoors.

A totally integrated, energy efficient cost effective and unobtrusive solution for all Emergency Lighting situations.

  • Passive Standby.
  • Active Standby.
  • No-Break for ALL lighting loads including high pressure discharge.
  • All systems can be configured 1:1, 3:1 or 3:3.

Integration with our complementary products for Emergency Lighting.
