With simple installation, users can lower operating costs, improve safety and optimize comfort by controlling test schedules for emergency luminaires.
ABB is releasing a range of exit signs, downlights, anti-panic and escape lighting designed to work with the well-known open-source DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) connectivity protocol for ease of installation, efficient monitoring and a greater assurance of safety.
The new ABB emergency lighting products will install seamlessly into any DALI smart lighting system and can interface with KNX and Dali installations through the ABB DALI Gateway. Each luminaire can test itself or, if installed with the ABB DALI emergency lighting control system, a touch-screen control panel can be programmed to set up automatic function and duration tests on each luminaire at weekly, monthly or annual intervals to ensure uninterrupted service. The results from each test are stored on a spreadsheet, which can be shared with regulators or local safety officials to prove the continuity of operations.
