SMART EXIT LIGHTS
ezCheck: Automated Emergency Light Testing System
Emergency and exit lighting systems require monthly function tests and annual duration tests to ensure performance when the main power supply fails. These tests typically involve pressing a test button on the light fixture to power the lights from the emergency power supply, and building owners are mandated to maintain a record of all test results. Manual testing, however, is labour intensive, time consuming, and may be disruptive to occupants. As a result, several facilities overlook these tests despite their importance in ensuring safety.
The ezCheck is an IoT-enabled automatic testing system (ATS) that automates the regular testing process of self-contained emergency lighting systems. The system consists of an electronic module that is designed to retrofit into existing light fixtures and requires simple rewiring to initiate the test. Light output and battery voltage of the emergency lights are recorded without interfering with the operations of the existing lights. If the module fails, the light fixture continues to operate normally.
HOW IT WORKS
AUTOMATING EMERGENCY LIGHT TESTING
ELIMINATES MANUAL LABOUR FOR TESTING
Eliminates manual labourfor testing, thus decreasing the cost and time taken for testing as well
COMPLIANCE MADE EASY
Testing procedures can be easily modified to comply with local fire safety works (FSW) and result formats
PROLONGS LIFE OF BACK-UP BATTERY
Prolongs life of back-up battery through regular discharge cycles
REDUCES OPERATING COSTS
Reduces operating costs by eliminating periodic mass replacement of exit and emergency lights
SAFEGUARDS THE ORGANIZATION
Safeguards the organization and protects corporate image by ensuring all exit and emergency lights are fully functional
