Troubleshooting and corrective measures

Troubleshooting and corrective measures

  • Unit does not meet required autonomy

    You may need to discharge and then charge for 24 hours. Re-test. The battery may need to be replaced if the emergency duration is still not achieved.

  • Fixture not fully illuminated

    If the lighting is hesitant and at a low level, the battery or (less likely) the circuit board may need to be replaced.

  • Recommended routine test procedure

    The testing frequencies are designed to ensure the ongoing protection of buildings and users and enable safe evacuation. Since there is a possibility that the normal lighting supply may fail shortly after a testing period, it is preferable to perform all tests, where possible, at times of least risk such as during daylight when there is sufficient natural light. Refer to the testing frequencies elsewhere on this page.

  • The led indicator is not illuminated

    A.C. power supply voltage is absent or the battery is not connected or charging has failed.

  • Testing frequencies

    Once per day Daily visual inspection of the luminaire and indication led by the user. Check for visible defects and/or fault indication.
    Once per month Each luminaire should be supplied with its battery for approximately 2 minutes by simulating a failure in the normal lighting supply to ensure that the luminaire operates in emergency mode. This is done automatically by the luminaire itself.
    Once per year An automatic duration test of 2 hours. This is done automatically by the luminaire itself.

    Additionally, the luminaire should be annually maintained and checked for proper operation by a maintenance expert in decentralized emergency lighting. For this, you can contact Taurac or an authorized electrical installer.
