This facility ensures that the batteries are only used on a full mains failure. For purpose of troubleshooting & maintenance it is necessary that the sub circuit monitors be addressable type. Batteries The Batteries shall be maintenance free sealed lead acid, gas recombination type with a minimum design life of 10 years. They shall have extremely low gas generation, low self-discharge and have permanently sealed pressure release vents. Care should be taken to store/install these batteries in areas, which are free of prolonged extreme temperatures. The Batteries shall be sized to power the complete system for 3 hours following mains failure at 100% light output of all emergency lamps. The facility of constant monitoring shall be available. Any exit sign or subcircuit failure shall be immediately reported to the local monitoring panel and onward to all network panels.
