Self-testing emergency lights check themselves automatically to ensure that the battery and lamp in each emergency light are fully operational. The self-test feature replaces the manual tests carried out monthly and annually. If a problem is detected by the self-test the system will display a visual warning and sound an audible warning.
The wall mountable Pico single sided emergency exit sign with digital self-test will perform its own self-checks at regular intervals and provide a visual indication if a fault is found.
The IP65 (weatherproof) rated Arc 8W bulkhead features a digital self-test facility, allowing the unit to perform its own self-check giving a visual warning if a fault is detected.
The Dyode emergency downlight features a digital self-test function, meaning it is capable of performing its own self-checks at regular intervals and provides visual warning if a fault is found.
Designed to help save time when manually testing emergency lighting, the digital self-test feature enables the bulkhead to simulate a power failure, giving visual indication if there is a fault.
With the same features as the 8W Calabor emergency lighting bulkhead light with self-test, this version also gives you high performance energy saving LEDs with an approximate lamp life of 50,000 hours.
With digital self-test, to help save time instead of manual testing, the Pico LED fire exit sign is supplied complete with high performance LEDs and a back-up battery as standard.
Suitable for ceiling mounting and with built-in self-test the Romney single sided hanging LED fire exit sign will perform regular self-checks and provide a visual indication of any issues.
The Romney double-sided hanging fire exit sign uses high performance, energy saving LEDs with a 50,000 hour lifespan, with digital self-test that simulates its own mains power failure.
Suitable for maintained or non-maintained operation, the Calabor fully recessed LED fire exit sign with self-test function performs regular self-checks and provides a visual indication of any faults.
With digital self-test, the Calabor double-sided recessed LED fire exit sign will automatically perform self-checks by simulating its own mains power failure saving time on manually checking devices.
Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, the economy emergency LED twin spot lamp is a non-maintained unit which will only light in the event of a mains power failure and will remain illuminated for at least 3 hours.
Safelincs' Self-Testing Emergency Lights and Exit Signs automatically carry out
-Monthly emergency lighting test (5 minutes)
-Annual full rated duration test (3 hours)
During each test, a light sensor detects whether the emergency light's lamp is actually working and a check of the battery is carried out.
The Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting (ICEL) notes that the self-testing approach increases safety, as manual techniques do not necessarily ensure that testing has been properly carried out.
