Building managers are responsible for periodic testing, maintenance and inspection of buildings where emergency lighting products are mandatory, as specified in Articles 72,73 and 84 of the Regulation on Fire Protection of Buildings. It is vital that the function and duration tests of emergency routing and lighting fixtures and kits are carried out according to TS EN 50172 standard. In systems without automation, these checks are very difficult and costly to carry out.
At this point, emergency lighting products adapted to automation systems that support the DALI protocol come into play, ensuring that these maintenances are carried out periodically and easily in accordance with the regulation. Starting in 2017, Five A offers products that are entirely self-designed, working with the DALI protocol.
DALI stands for "Digital Addressable Lighting Interface" and is a protocol defined in the technical standard IEC 62386 to intelligently and easily manage lighting equipment.
