What is the PLU Module?

The PLU (Pulse Light Unit) Module is the Lux Intelligent low cost addressable module which sits inside each luminaire on the emergency lighting network, and is the key component to interfacing any luminaire to the Lux Intelligent panel.

Lux Intelligent has a full range of Emergency Luminaires available, each pre-fitted with the PLU Module.  However, you can use your existing Emergency Lights with Lux Intelligent by installing a PLU Module into each light.  This can be carried out by your own  service engineers or by Advanced.

Likewise, if you purchase your own lights from a third party, the PLU Module can be fitted into those lights to make them compatible with Lux Intellitent.

 For more information take a look at How does the PLU Module work?.

What emergency lights does Lux Intelligent work with?

Lux Intelligent can work with almost any type of light fitting. 

To make a light suitable for the Lux Intelligent system, a low cost addressable PLU module needs to be incorporated in to the fitting.  This can be done by an end user, or the service can be provided by Advanced*. 

There is also a large selection of Lux Intelligent emergency lights available with both fluorescent and LED light sources, all ready with the addressable module installed.

 

* Advanced Electronics are the owners of the Lux Intelligent brand.

What standards do your emergency lights meet?

All luminaires manufactured by Advanced (Owners of Lux Intelligent) fully comply with EN60598-22. 

Advanced is certified to ISO 9001:2008 with the scope of the design, manufacture and assembly of safety control systems.  Advanced is also a member of ICEL, the Industry committee for Emergency Lighting and as a result of this affiliation, operates under its demanding quality requirements.  This is fully demonstrated with Advanced registration to ICEL's 1004 re-engineering of luminaires scheme.

You can view a full range of our emergency lighting luminaires, as well as datasheets for each of the luminaires.

How many emergency lights do I need?

There is no specific quantity of emergency lights specified.  The requirement is that you provide sufficient lighting levels, in the event of a mains failure, for people to safely exit from a building. 

Using the relevant standards BS EN 1836/BS 5266-7, the light level requirements for the building can be determined.  From that, the type and quantity of luminaires can be determined.

 

What standards is Lux Intelligent approved to?

The Lux Intelligent emergency lighting test panel is designed to meet the requirements of BS EN 62034.

ICEL, the emergency lightingarem of the Lighting Industry Federation (LIF) believes that consideration should always be given to installing automatic emergency lighting testing systems conforming to BS EN 62034 because of their reliability and cost effectiveness.

Manual testing of an emergency lighting system can be expensive and disruptive, therefore the deployment of an Automatic testing solution can solve these problems cost effectively by regularly checking the status of the system and individual luminaires.
