What does the logger tool do?

The logger tool is a PC based software application which extracts the emergency lighting testing results and the current status of the emergency lighting installation from the emergency light testing panel.  It presents the data in a form that can be used to demonstrate compliance with the code of practice outlined in BS EN 5266.

It allows access to panel data either via a local connection (direct via an RS232 serial port connected directly to the panel) or indirectly across local area networks or telecommunication lines.  The data it downloads can be presented in various formats as well as allowing the user to add their own comments with regards to failures and rectification works.

For failures, the logger tool allows an operator generate fail summaries for distribution to maintenance teams.

The logger tool also has the facility to connect to panels via a ‘virtual terminal’ tool where the operator can carry actions out as if stood in front of the panel
