Why do I need emergency lighting anyway?

Emergency lighting provides light and orientation in an emergency.

This is above all important for public buildings because the people in them are not familiar with the local circumstances and escape routes.

This is why emergency lighting represents not only the statutory responsibility but also the responsibility to the people, the building and the environment

Can I use emergency lighting for normal lighting too?

The emergency luminaire can be operated with a normal mains supply too.

This can be realised in different ways depending on the emergency luminaire. For concrete cases, please ask your sales partner directly or our 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 so that the power is supplied even in the event of mains failure.

With central battery solutions, the batteries are not accommodated in the luminaire but are collected in one or more central stations.

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

In principle yes, provided the driver also works with dc voltage. However, communication may not be possible with the system so that only circuit monitoring and no individual monitoring of the luminaires is possible.
