ACT Emergency Lighting Battery Tester

Time is of the essence when you need to escape a building in an emergency. But how many engineers wished they could make quick work of testing the batteries which power the lighting system? What typically takes hours to test can now be done in minutes thanks to the new ACT Luminaire Emergency Lighting Battery Tester from ACT Meters Ltd.

MD David Grant says: “This is a totally unique product that will enable engineers to work more effectively, encourage more businesses to offer this test as a service and ultimately, save more lives.”

The ACT Luminaire drastically reduces the time taken to test popular stand alone batteries used in emergency lighting systems as required by BS5266 Standards and Fire Reforms Acts. It simulates a 1 hour and full battery duration test in minutes and will identify defective batteries in seconds. It tests 2.4v/4.0Ah and 3.6v/1.5Ah Nicad batteries and also leaves sufficient capacity after a full battery duration test to power the emergency light for at least 30 minutes.

David adds: “The ACT Luminaire is simple in operation with no buttons or complicated settings and automatically detects which battery voltage type is fitted. It allows all emergency lighting luminaires to be tested quickly and safely during one service visit. Engineers could even combine PAT testing and emergency lighting testing in a single visit as a new business opportunity.”
