Hochiki Europe’s new Emergency Lighting System is an EN50172 compliant intelligent low voltage system which utilises LED technology to provide a unique, highly cost-effective and energy efficient solution.
Full ICEL members, Hochiki Europe manufactures the Emergency Lighting System in the UK; the system comprises an addressable emergency lighting control panel with battery back-up and features addressable, self-contained LED luminaires and signage connected via low voltage (24V) cabling – it is not necessary to install a 230V AC mains supply to each luminaire for monitoring or battery charging purposes, thereby saving significant installation costs. The luminaires are equipped with battery back-up which is charged through the low voltage cabling, making sure they will function in every situation, while the units fit directly onto a standard Hochiki sensor base making installation simple.
The light emitting diode (LED) technology that the system is based around is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly – in fact, it produces less than four per cent of the carbon emissions of fluorescent lighting. This makes the Emergency Lighting System a green alternative to other systems that are currently available and allows operating costs to be kept to a minimum without compromising the safety of a building’s occupants.
The most intelligent emergency lighting system on the market today, Hochiki’s addressable technology means that individual luminaires can be easily controlled and tested, while the graphics software that is included with the system provides a simple method of monitoring the condition of the LEDs and batteries. The system has been designed to be low maintenance and requires only one per cent of the bulb changes needed with traditional lighting.
Unique, energy efficient and cost-effective – Hochiki’s new Emergency Lighting System is the state-of-the-art evacuation solution that fulfils all modern safety requirements.
