Advanced Remote Monitoring of Emergency Egress Lighting Systems

by Suzanne Hooley

Emergency Lighting

The dependable operation of emergency egress lighting systems is critical to the life safety and well-being of the occupants and residents of public buildings during utility power outages and similar emergencies.   As an integral component in the life safety design of public buildings, required monthly and yearly testing ensures that the emergency egress lighting systems perform reliably when required.

Used in conjunction with our centralized emergency lighting inverters, we incorporate three (3) specific advanced remote monitoring features, which significantly improve the performance and reliability of emergency egress lighting systems:

1)   NetMinder Communications
Our NetMinder internal communications adapters integrate our inverter into an Ethernet TCP/IP, MODBUS TCP, or MODBUS RS485 network with a specific IP address — thus allowing inverter status, battery test results, and alarm conditions to be monitored remotely without the need for any external software.   The remote notifications of alarms and status are sent to a designated recipient via e-mail, SNMP, or network broadcast messaging.

2)   Intellistat / Intellistat TS
Most of our inverters are equipped with either the Intellistat or Intellistat TS, a local monitoring display that provides programmable, automatic, unattended NFPA 101 required testing with two (2) years of data logging and recordkeeping.   Maintaining NFPA 101 requirements is critical to keeping a public facility up to code and securing liability insurance.

3)   Intellistat / Intellistat TS  with  NetMinder
This is the “best of both worlds”, combining all the features and benefits above.
