Why do I need emergency lighting anyway?

Emergency lighting provides light and orientation in the event of an emergency.

This is particularly important for public buildings, because people might not be familiar with the layout of the building and the location of the escape routes.

That is why emergency lighting is not only a legal requirement, but also a key responsibility to the people, the building and the environment.

Can I use emergency lighting for normal lighting too?

Emergency luminaires can also be operated using a normal mains supply.

This can be realised in various different ways, depending on the actual fitting. For actual case studies, please just ask your sales partner or contact the dedicated team at our headquarters.

What is the difference between a single and central battery solution?

With single battery solutions, the batteries are installed directly in the luminaire. These batteries then provide power in the event of a mains failure.

With central battery solutions, the batteries are not installed in the luminaire. Instead, the batteries are located in one or more central locations.

Can I combine any luminaire with an emergency lighting system of my choice?

In principle, yes. As long as the driver also works with dc voltage. However, communication with the system might not be an option. In this case, circuit monitoring is possible, but no individual monitoring of the luminaires can be carried out.
