  • ABB offers continuity of testing and record-keeping over a building’s lifetime, through central automatic testing of emergency lighting under the DALI protocol.

    ABB will exhibit at LuxLive at London’s Excel on 14 and 15 November (stand N38) to showcase its integration solutions for the open-source DALI protocol for smart buildings. It will also display a wider portfolio of smart lighting and building automation solutions.

    At the event ABB’s Paul Onyett, Global Product Manager for DALI Emergency Lighting, will deliver a presentation on Wednesday 14 November at 10:30am in the Escape Zone. He will explain why central automatic testing minimizes risk to building occupants by ensuring lifetime compliance with safety standards and Building Regulations, as well as delivering long-term savings for building owners.

    By law, building owners must carry out regular testing of their emergency lighting systems and maintain accurate records of the health of their systems. This ensures that luminaires, power supplies and other components are ready to work at a moment’s notice – with the goal of guiding people out of the building should the worst happen.

    Building owners can choose between manual, automatic self-testing or central automatic testing. While central automatic testing has a higher initial cost, it offers the key benefits of low operating costs, straightforward management and automatic central record keeping. Many building owners arrange management over five-year contracts, with the risk that manual records can be lost during the handover between contractors.

    Opting for central automatic testing under the IEC 62034 standard minimises risk, ensures continuity of records and frees up time for building managers to focus on other tasks such as risk assessments. In addition, it supports Part L of the building regulations, which requires that emergency lighting systems should be selected to be effective for the lifetime of the building.

    As the most trusted open protocol, DALI makes up 34 percent of the market for smart building lighting. It is used widely to control emergency lighting systems. In comparison, the KNX standard is the basis of many Building Management Systems (BMS). ABB has developed gateways to translate control signals between the two standards. These can integrate DALI emergency lighting control and testing into a KNX-based BMS.

    Paul said: “Emergency systems have never been under such intense scrutiny. By installing ABB’s DALI user interface options such as the DALI Control Unit, a touch screen panel or KNX DALI Gateways for BMS systems, building owners can feel the benefits of central automatic testing. This includes confidence that buildings will pass annual safety tests with flying colours and have a full set of safety records to comply with legislation. There are also added benefits of reduced lifetime maintenance costs of testing the emergency lighting in buildings. This ties in closely with lifetime lighting requirements for standard lighting in Part L of the Building Regulations.”

  • DALI emergency lighting
    Integration for safe monitoring in smart buildings...

  • With simple installation, users can lower operating costs, improve safety and optimize comfort by controlling test schedules for emergency luminaires.

    ABB has released a range of exit signs, downlights, anti-panic and escape lighting designed to work with the well-known open-source DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) connectivity protocol for ease of installation, efficient monitoring and a greater assurance of safety.

    The new ABB emergency lighting products will install seamlessly into any DALI smart lighting system and can interface with KNX and Dali installations through the ABB DALI Gateway. Each luminaire can test itself or, if installed with the ABB DALI emergency lighting control system, a touch-screen control panel can be programmed to set up automatic function and duration tests on each luminaire at weekly, monthly or annual intervals to ensure uninterrupted service. The results from each test are stored on a spreadsheet, which can be shared with regulators or local safety officials to prove the continuity of operations.

    The ease of installing DALI-enabled lights reduces installation costs, while the automatic monitoring feature reduces the cost of operations, while providing the maximum assurance of safe and continuous operation.

    The DALI protocol is the most prevalent open-source connection protocol in the smart lighting market with about a 32-percent market share. All products in the ABB DALI emergency lighting range are certified to internationally recognized standards and will be registered with the Digital Illumination Interface Alliance, or DiiA, an industry group that standardizes and monitors the certification of key players who use the DALI protocol. ABB is a member of the DiiA.

    “The new DALI emergency lighting range will let building managers control all of their lighting through a smart system, from environmentally friendly standard lighting to emergency lights that are crucial to providing safety,” Paul Onyett, Global Product Manager DALI Emergency Lighting. “The ease of installation and the automatic monitoring capabilities that are built into the emergency lighting range are particularly useful, as they allow for a maximum assurance of safety with a minimum investment of time.”

    In addition to its newest DALI emergency lighting range, ABB offers the Elkay easyDALI system, offering environmentally smart controls for standard and emergency lighting. The system includes a range of sensors that can adjust lighting levels for presence or absence, along with adjustments to optimize the use of natural light for maximum energy efficiency.

    ABB also offers two versions of the DALI-Gateway, which allows the interconnection of lighting groups on the DALI and KNX platforms, with control and monitoring via KNX. KNX is an open-source digital platform that can control multiple building functions.
