Automatic self-test

  • How does the self-test work?

    Self-test luminaires perform a self-test upon initial activation, and after 24 hours of charging, a full 3-hour test follows. The initial tests are randomly generated and then executed according to standard requirements (every +/- 4 weeks for a function test and every +/- 52 weeks for a duration test).

    All self-test products are equipped with a two-color LED indicator, clearly visible for visual inspection. The LED indicator shows solid green or flashes green under normal conditions and flashes red in case of a fault. Refer to the tables: click here

  • What is a function test?

    A function test is a 2-minute test that simulates a power outage and checks the operation of the emergency light source via the battery supply. The local indicator led flashes slowly green while the 2-minute function test is ongoing. If a fault occurs during a function test, the local indicator led will flash red. In that case, always contact Taurac or an authorized electrical installer to rectify the fault.

  • What is a duration test?

    A duration test simulates a power outage. It also checks the operation of the emergency light source from the battery supply for the nominal duration of the module. The led indicator flashes rapidly green during the duration of the test. If a fault occurs during the duration test, the led indicator will flash red. In that case, always contact Taurac or an authorized electrical installer to rectify the fault. The battery must be fully charged before a duration test can be started.
