What batteries does the panel require?

To ensure the panel operates fully during a mains power outage, the panel will run off two 12 Volt 7AHr VRLA type batteries monitoring the system over a three hour forced discharge.  This is for a fully utilized panel.

Can I rename a light?

Yes, all the light and zone text can be altered at any time.

If for instance the use of a location within a premise is changed, the text description of the emergency lights in that location can be changed to reflect the change in use.  All is that is required is the access codes the panel to permit the changes, or access to the panel configuration via the Configuration Tool software.

Does the panel autolearn devices?

Yes, the panel does have an autolearn facility.  The panel works by cross referencing a unique nine digit serial number allocated to the PLU Module in each light to an address between 1 and 249.

The Auto Learn feature can be accessed via the menu system on the panel.

Can I change the logo in the panel?

Yes, the logo tool can permit the creation of user defined logos for the Lux Intelligent display.  Additionally, the panel also allows for the facility to display a contact telephone number in the event of the panel requiring some type of service support.

How do I set up a Lux Intelligent emergency light testing system?

There are four stages to setting up a system.

Stage 1:  Select your luminaires and the type of system you wish to have i.e. non-maintained system with standalone lights, or a general scheme that uses a number of the general lighting fittings to provide emergency illumination.  If retrofitting, decide on how many emergency lights you have to monitor.

Stage 2:  Install you emergency lights and/or PLU Modules.  Confirm your data wiring and mains wiring is fault free.

Stage 3:  Configure your site by defining your lights in terms of text, zones and testing timetable.  Match the PLU serial numbers with the addresses to be used.  Once this information is gathered, the panel can be programmed.  For small installations, this can be done at the panel, when not much text entry is required.  For larger sites, this can be done easier using the lighting configuration tool.

Stage 4:  Decide on how you plan to manage the monitoring of the panel(s).  Is the logger tool to be used in isolation or is the data to be uploaded and shared using the Lux Intelligent cloud.  Once decided, install and configure the Lux Intelligent logger, as well ensuring the necessary connections to the panels have been configured.  Also, if the cloud is to be used, the Lux Intelligent sync tool will also need to be installed and configured

There are full installation guides and step by step walk throughs available which detail the process of setting up the Logging Software and the Cloud based monitoring and reporting.
