Emergency Lighting

What if...

Emergency lighting within a commercial establishment is something that needs to be tested, checked, and maintained on a consistent basis.

 

Our question to you - what if you could do all of this remotely?

Complete control and access from anywhere

With our emergency lighting remote monitoring service we have, and allow you, complete access, control and visisbility of all your emergency lighting luminaires.


We make them fully accessible from any device, whether that be your desktop computer, laptop, smart phone, or even tablet, at any time, and anywhere in the world.

Lithium Ion Batteries

Emergency lighting evolves with technology and LED is now the main light source used for safety, performance and reliability. What has lagged behind is the battery technology, that is until recently with the advent of reliable Lithium-ion technology.

Previously, emergency lighting (which is always the last consideration in a new build or refurbishment) operated on mains voltage Halogen, fluorescent or occasionally compact fluorescent lamps.

 

These light sources worked well with NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) batteries which invariably have a lower energy density and they tend to self-discharge so need a constant trickle charge. However, they are cost-effective and were used for a long time in the industry mainly due to their wide temperature range compared with other available technologies such as SLA (sealed lead acid).

Then along came NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride), an environmentally friendly technology, which although has a narrower acceptable temperature range, typically had a 30 to 40% higher energy density than NiCd. They were also less susceptible to “memory effect” associated with NiCd.

The below chart below further illustrates the advantages of Lithium, as we can  it showing an NiCd battery coming to the end of its lifecycle after four to five years, where as the Lithium-Ion cells are still going strong.

Over a 5 year period, using 1000 emergency lights with Lithium-Ion batteries rather than NiCd on this example scheme, would save the client £33,507 in energy bills alone, maintenance costs by replacing batteries twice less times and testing Emergency lights with Remo-Tech devices that all data  will be recorded and controlled in one portal removing any manual testing on site. 

The benefits:

  • Environmentally friendly (Lithium is not a hazardous waste).

  • Lightweight & Compact

  • High energy density packs a bigger punch

  • Low maintenance, can be charged at any time

  • Operates at higher temperatures

  • More discharge cycles so longer lasting useful life

  • Low self-discharge rate (3/5% monthly)

  • Shorter charging times reduces time/cost on site to do testing

Automated fault recording

Any faults or issues with lighting or with battery life are recordered instantly with an automated alert sent out to the relevant personel for further attention. Individual luminaires are pinpointed and so are easily checked.

 

Compliance tests are carried out automatically and our system generates the test reports, which we are also able to print and send to you should you require a hard copy for your files.

Easily track and monitor standard light fittings within your premises

Regardless of whether it is an individual fitting or a group of fittings, thankfully, due to our onboard tracking system we can accurately monitor and record data for each and every luminarie. These can be found on our dashboard with clear and easy to understand metrics for both ourselves and the client to access from anywhere in the world.

Self test & self charge capabillities

We are able to not only fit emergency lighting that will self charge, but we also provide fittings that have the capability to self test too. 

Our emergency lighting monitoring and control system controls and monitors all emergency lights in the premises

 

A central control unit automatically schedules self tests for each of the emergency lights and stores the results of the tests in memory. We are able to remotely monitor both self-contained and centrally supplied emergency lighting systems.

Retrofit lighting

We can setup emergency lighting that will operate specfically to how your workplace requires it to.

 

Completely bespoke to how you wish it to function, whether it be a mixture of standard operation, or if you wish lighting systems to have self test and self charge capabillities. 

 

Easily adaptable to any existing lighting infrastructe that you may already have in place.
