The significant advantage of using a
Static Inverter System for emergency lighting is that it
allows the use of a wide range of normal functional or decorative
mains luminaires as emergency fittings. The system eliminates
the need for a separate low voltage system or self-contained
luminaire emergency lighting installation. They are particularly
useful where high level light output is required such as
that required for high risk task areas.
Our Static Inverter Systems are able to provide the following
input and output configurations:
On Mains failure, the system converts DC power from the
central battery to AC output. Our systems allow the use
of our modern energy efficient luminaires, while our on-line
‘NO BREAK’ inverter systems enable the use
of high-pressure discharge lighting. Although not generally
recommended for emergency lighting, discharge lighting
is particularly useful for standby lighting applications
where high light levels are required, e.g. high bay lighting.
An emergency lighting design can be combined with the
general lighting scheme to provide a cost effective, unobtrusive
Our systems are designed to meet the requirements of
the European standard EN50171. Except for our Low Power
‘LP’ range (up to 1500W-hours as defined by
EN50171) which produce a quasi-square wave output, all
our Static Inverter systems produce a true sinusoidal
AC output thus reducing heat in cables and load, extending
luminaire life and saving money. They are electrically
highly efficient and therefore provide the benefit of
low running costs.
The metal cubicles are exceptionally strong - made from
1.6mm Zintec, they are extremely sturdy and well engineered.
Easy to install, the smaller systems have castors for
manoeuvrability while the larger cubicles incorporate
a base plinth for ease of positioning. Access is via the
front and the type of construction offers ease of access
for installation and maintenance purposes.
Prefer to monitor the function and operation of the TOTAL
Lighting scheme? Does the lighting system require Hold-off
Relays? We can integrate, monitor and test the whole emergency
lighting system from power source, distribution, hold-off
relays or the individual slave luminaires.
STATIC INVERTER SYSTEMS FOR EMERGENCY LIGHTING
Because there is no restriction on the type of mains
fitting that can be used means our systems are even suitable
for high-pressure discharge lamps. Lighting levels will
remain higher than with self-contained luminaires either
indoors or outdoors.
A totally integrated, energy efficient cost effective
and unobtrusive solution for all Emergency Lighting situations.
