How many panels do I need?

This is very much dependent on the installation.  The cost of an addressable emergency lighting installation is dominated by the cost of luminaires and the panels are a much lesser peripheral cost.

Decisions on quantities of panels should be made in line with ease of installation and the choice of how to monitor those panels.

Each panel can monitor up to 996 lights, where the lights are wired 249 per loop.  Sometimes loop wiring can be costly and it may be beneficial to install a single loop panel per floor in a large building, rather than one panel in a central location.

It is always beneficial to not exceed 80% capacity on loops and panels, as this will allow for possible minor alterations and additions in the future without large scale changes.

Monitoring can be achieved by the use of serial to Ethernet converters and simply adding the panels to the sites local area network.
