Automating Emergency Light Testing

Company News, Electrical Systems, Health, Safety, Security & Environment, EMEA
Building management systems specialist Vericon Systems has launched EmeRed, an intelligent device which is designed to automate testing of emergency lighting to comply with health and safety legislation.

 

The intelligent device which is easily retrofitted, monitors the performance of every light in a building and automatically transmits the results to a dedicated portal that can be accessed online, via the cloud. This gives facilities managers, estate managers and property owners complete visibility of the status of individual lights in a single building, as well as performance trends across an entire portfolio.

 

EmeRed reports a range of different factors to ensure the lighting is always on the top line, such as battery degradation and energy consumption. It also measures the life outstanding in each battery to ensure they are replaced before an emergency occurs and automatically reports any potential failures or problems.

 

Bernard Cook, Managing Director of Vericon Systems, says:

"Testing emergency lighting equipment is an important responsibility, but manual testing is often a time-consuming and therefore costly job.

 

"Using EmeRed’s smart technologies and machine learning to automate emergency lighting testing can save buildings and facilities managers valuable time and money, especially in comparison to manual testing. It guarantees 100% compliance and enables real time information to be viewed or downloaded remotely."
