Central Battery Systems

Why central battery systems?


Central battery system based emergency lighting is ideal
for larger projects. There are many reasons for this, the
main ones being:

Simplified maintenance Integrated Emergency lighting

often requiring the mains fittings to be dismantled to gain suitable standard unmodified mains luminaires also has
access to the battery. aesthetic advantages in many applications.

With a Central battery system the battery is housed in a


secure cabinet in a suitable, easy to access location such as
a plant room. The batteries in a central battery system will
typically have a 10 year design life, and when replacement
is required they can be easily and quickly replaced.

On large systems with hundreds of emergency luminaires,


Central battery systems potentially offer massive savings in
maintenance cost and disruption.

LIGHTING DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS


Current legislation and design increases the attraction of using central
battery systems to provide emergency lighting in a building. In
6 particular, an increase in the use of static inverter systems,
which provide an alternative source of power to normal mains
luminaires. These considerations can be summarised as follows:

1. BS 5266 part 7 (EN 1838) specifies increased emergency light


levels than previous standards
2. Slave luminaires, operating from AC/DC and AC/AC central
systems, offer a higher light output and improved spacing
characteristics over comparable self-contained versions of the
same luminaire
3. Compact fluorescent lamps make ideal slave luminaires, offering
high efficiency and appropriate light output for areas with low
ceilings
4. There is an increasing requirement from architects and users to
make emergency lighting as unobtrusive as possible, so utilisation
of the normal mains luminaires is an ideal solution

Through the use of dedicated slave luminaires and conversion modules


for mains fluorescent luminaires, these considerations can be catered
for by both AC/DC and AC/AC central systems. An illustration of the
increased output that can be expected from 8W slave luminaires
compared to self-contained versions is shown in figure 1.

Self-contained Self-contained Slave AC/AC Slave luminaires with static inverter systems, the full design lumen output of
the luminaire must be taken into account, as the lamps are powered by
conventional ballasts. It is important to ensure that the use of such
high output luminaires in low ceiling areas does not exceed the
uniformity factor limitations. The utilisation factor should be taken at
zero reflectance in line with BS 5266 Pts. 1 and 7 1999. Typical
spacing data is provided at the rear of this catalogue, to assist in the
calculation of spacing.

TYPE OF SYSTEM
There are numerous different combinations of central battery system type and the correct choice depends as much on customer preference as on
design criteria. The selection chart below gives some general guidance. Should you wish to discuss a proposed system type for a particular application,

open areas, or hazardous areas requiring higher than normal
emergency lighting levels, or for powering compact fluorescent
luminaires where there is often insufficient space within the
fitting to accommodate a conversion module.
SYSTEM DESIGN
SYSTEM CONTROL & MODE OF OPERATION
It is a requirement of any correctly designed emergency lighting system that the emergency lighting is activated both in the event of complete mains
failure, and also in the event of a local mains failure. The emergency lighting system can have luminaires that are maintained or non-maintained.
Similarly, the central battery unit can also be maintained or non-maintained operation. The following diagrams explain how activation of the emergency
lighting is achieved, using the main types of central battery systems.

Central systems with dedicated slave luminaires

a) Non-maintained central battery unit with sub-circuit monitors.


With this method, relays are used to monitor the normal lighting
supplies. The contacts of these relays are wired in a series loop
such that in the event of failure of any of the normal lighting
supplies, the loop is broken, sending a signal to the central
battery unit to activate all of the emergency luminaires.
Details of purpose-made remote sub-circuit monitor units can
be found in the Loadstar product section.

Modes of operation
When selecting a static inverter system as part of a centrally powered
emergency lighting design, there are several types of system available
on the market and careful consideration must be taken to choose the
correct equipment for the application.

Active stand-by:
Central Battery Systems

During the normal mode of operation, the incoming mains supply is by-
passed to the outgoing load terminals via a solid state static switch,
the inverter runs continuously with the charger supplying power to the
inverter and maintaining a nominal float voltage on the battery. Due to
the permanent active status of the inverter (off-load), power is
constantly being removed and replaced into the battery with the overall
effect of constant repetitive charge/discharge and can significantly
reduce battery lifetime (10 year life battery can almost be halved).

Active on-line:
During the normal mode of operation, the inverter runs continuously
with the charger supplying power to the inverter and maintaining a
nominal float voltage on the battery; the inverter supplies the load at all
times. The incoming mains supply is held off as a secondary by-pass
source in case of inverter fault and is used to provide charge power to
the batteries/inverter. Like the active stand-by system, active on-line
inverters run continuously and can reduce battery lifetime; aggravated
by the increase in power demand from the inverter supplying the full
equipment load.

BATTERY ROOM VENTILATION


Vented batteries, such as nickel cadmium, plante and flat plate lead
acid emit potentially explosive gases under charge conditions.
Therefore it is important when selecting rooms for emergency lighting
central battery systems with these types of battery, to calculate the
amount of ventilation required.
The required number of air changes per hour (A) is given by the
following formula:

A = 0.045 x N x I
V

Where:
N = Number of cells in the battery
V = Volume of room in cubic metres
I = Charge rate in Amperes

This formula will give the number of air changes per hour required
during boost charge conditions. On float charge (systems are on float
charge for most of their service life), the amount of gas emitted is
approximately 1.5% of that liberated whilst on boost charge and under
most circumstances this will be dissipated by natural ventilation, and
will not present a hazard. However, we recommend that the boost
charge condition is allowed for at the design stage to ensure the
Central Battery Systems

appropriate decision on ventilation requirements is made.

Although Valve Regulated Lead-Acid Batteries require little ventilation


under normal operating conditions, it is good practice to apply the
formula to calculate the number of air changes required to achieve
minimum risk under battery fault or failure conditions. Please refer to:

Total volts drop on a circuit can be calculated according to the formula:

Where:
VDT = volts drop total
I = maximum load current
VDM = volts drop per amp per metre (obtained from fig. 5)
D = cable run in metres The problems of volt drop can be overcome by:

• Using higher system voltages (= lower currents and therefore lower


volt drop) 17
• Using larger cables (= lower resistance and therefore lower volt
drop)
• Using multiple outgoing circuits (= less current per circuit and
therefore lower volt drop)

Example:
Fig. 6 & 7 show an example comparison for a central battery system
with a total connected load of 1500W and a 50m run of 16mm2 cable
supplying the luminaires.

This example shows that for this configuration, a 230V system would
be most suitable to meet the requirements of BS 5266.
The low current value combined with greater allowable volt drop would
enable much smaller cables to be used.

SIZING AC/DC UNITS
Use the following procedure to select a correctly sized AC/DC unit:

1) Make a list of all the luminaires to be connected to the static


inverter.
2) Note the quantity of fittings of each type.
3) Establish the electrical supply details for each luminaire type
(Amps).
4) Multiply each of these by the quantity of luminaires
5) Add together the total Circuit current in Amps requirement.
6) Add an allowance (recommend a minimum of 20%) for future
expansion.

Note
Ensure any fitting selected for use as an emergency fitting complies
with the product standard for emergency fittings (EN60598-2-22) note,
that to comply with this standard glow starters, or lamps with built in
starters must not be used, (use electronic starters instead).

electronic starters instead).

Worked examples
22 In the following examples the same fitting types have been used in both
cases, however in the first example, switch start gear has been used as
the basis for calculation, the second example, is based on HF gear.
These examples illustrate how the use of HF gear results in a smaller
and cheaper static inverter unit.

Calculate the correct sized static inverter to support the following load:

via a 2 line LCD display, using 4 push buttons for selection, with a
constant programming memory. The module has three main functions:
- Display of the current panel/luminaire status
- Control and monitoring of all test cycles and functions
- Configuration of the output module mode of operation

The following is displayed:


- Battery voltage level
- Battery current during test run or emergency operation
- Charger fault
- Interrupted battery circuit
- Duration test failure
- Deep discharge protection “ON”
- Function test (FT) in progress
- Battery duration test (BT) in progress
Function and battery duration tests can be manually initiated and
cancelled any time. The display indicates the circuit and address
number of luminaires with a fault condition. This can be cross

Initial design is conducted by situating luminaires to reveal specific hazards and highlight safety equipment and signs, in addition to providing
illumination to assist safe travel along the escape route. This should be performed regardless of whether it is an emergency escape route or an
open (anti-panic) area. Only when this is accomplished should the type of luminaire or its light output be considered. BS 5266 Pt 7: 1999 requires
that the luminaires sited at points of emphasis must comply with BS EN 60 598-2-22.

Specific locations where a luminaire must be provided are:

105

At each exit door All safety exit signs Outside and near each final exit

Near stairs so that each tread receives direct At each change of direction Near each first aid post
light

Central Battery Systems

Near any other change of floor level At each intersection of corridors Near each piece of fire fighting equipment
and call point

Note - the term near means within 2 metres measured horizontally


EMERGENCY DESIGN GUIDE
STAGE 2
ENSURE THAT EXIT SIGNS ARE OF CORRECT FORMAT AND SIZE
Section 4.1 of BS 5266 Pt 7 states that “Signs which are provided at all exits intended to be used in an emergency and along escape routes shall be
illuminated to indicate unambiguously the route of escape to a point of safety”. Where direct sight of an emergency exit is not possible, an illuminated
directional sign (or series of signs) shall be provided to assist progression towards the emergency exit.

• Sign formats should not be mixed


- BS 2560: 1975
Old-style signs now obsolete. Should have been replaced by
December 1998 EXIT
- BS 5499 Pt 1
Signs are still acceptable, if they are already in the building EXIT

- European Signs Directive Format


106 This came into force on 1st April 1996, under The Signs Directive

If there is any doubt as to the most appropriate format of sign,


guidance should be obtained from the local Fire Authority.

• Maximum viewing distances


For all formats of safety signs, the maximum viewing distances and luminance conditions are given in BS 5266 pt7/EN 1838 Signs can be either
internally illuminated, such as exit boxes or edge lit emergency luminaires with a screened sign that have a controlled illuminance, or painted signs
which includes Photoluminescent signs but to be acceptable they must have an external emergency light illuminating them.

Maximum viewing distances are:


Internally illuminated signs - 200 x the panel height Externally illuminated signs - 100 x the panel height

<200 x h h <100 x h
h

• Illumination requirements
The sign must conform to the colours of ISO 3864, which defines that exit and first aid signs must be white with green as the contrast colour.
The ratio of luminance of the white colour to the green colour must be between 5:1 and 15:1. The minimum luminance of any 10mm patch area on
the sign must be greater than 2cd/m2 and the ratio of maximum to minimum luminance shall be less than 10:1 for either colour
Central Battery Systems

min luminance = 2cd/m2

ratio of luminance shall be


less than 10:1 for either colour

contrast of the colours must be


between 5:1 and 15:1

Note: Internally illuminated exit signs are pre-tested to ensure they meet these requirements, provided that they comply with EN 60598-2-22. If the sign
is designed to be externally illuminated, considerable care must be taken by the system designer to see that these conditions are met. Even though an
emergency luminaire must be sited within 2 metres from the sign (see stage 1) calculations should still be made to check that the sign is adequately
illuminated.
STAGE 3
LOCATE LUMINAIRES AT THE FOLLOWING ESSENTIAL AREAS IN THE BUILDINGS
Locate luminaires at the following essential areas in the buildings.
These locations are not part of the escape route but because of their risk they require protection by emergency lighting. Some of these areas are
specifically defined in BS 5266-1. Others are likely to be hazard areas defined by the risk assessment and being considered as a guidance Standard pr

failure.

Other areas that need consideration as input to the risk assessment (pr BS5266-10)

Kitchens - Sudden failure of lighting while staff are cooking hot food is potentially dangerous,
currently these areas would need an emergency light over the extinguisher but emergency lighting is
needed over the area for hot food preparation. Employees need to be able to locate and turn off
machinery/ovens/hobs etc. to ensure that they do not turn on once the supply is re-instated and
cause a possible unsafe condition.
First Aid stations - Currently the requirement is for the light level needed to evacuate the
premises, however system designers consider the light level response and duration times of
emergency lighting of first aid rooms where treatment is to be given
Refuge areas for disabled people - In these areas fire wardens will now have to go and collect
disabled persons often also transferring them into rescue sleds to enable them safely to be taken

down stairs should consider the light level response and duration times of emergency lighting in
refuges.
Fire equipment - In a fire condition, users must inspect and act on the condition of fire alarm
panels and repeaters. The light must be sufficient to enable displays to be read accurately. The staff
will also have to contact the fire brigade so they must have sufficient illumination for the number to
be dialled correctly in the emergency condition.
The emergency lighting must provide adequate direct illumination on crash bars on exit doors to
enable them to be easily seen and operated, consider using exit signs above downward light
panels.
EMERGENCY DESIGN GUIDE
STAGE 4
ESCAPE ROUTE LIGHTING
When the points of emphasis have been covered, it is essential to provide any additional luminaires to ensure that minimum illuminance levels are met
to enable the routes to be used safely. In addition, every compartment on the escape route must have at least two luminaires, to provide some light in
the event of luminaire failure.

• Light Level Requirements


BS 5266 Pt 7: 1999 (EN 1838) 4.2 calls for a minimum of 1 lux
anywhere on the centre line of the escape route for normal risks.
A uniformity ratio of 40:1 maximum to minimum must not be
exceeded. This illuminance must be provided for the full duration
and life of the system. 50% of the illuminance must be available
within 5 seconds and the full value within 60 seconds of supply
failure.

Note: The UK has an “A deviation” which continues to allow a 0.2 lux


minimum value for routes that will be permanently unobstructed. It
should be noted that this puts a heavy burden on the user to ensure
routes are kept clear even in an emergency.
108 For this reason it is recommended that the 1 lux level should always
be used.

• Photometric Design
Emergency Escape Routes
The use of authenticated spacing tables or a suitable computer
program provides the information to determine whether luminaires
are needed in addition to those for the points of emphasis (see
data section), to provide the minimum required level of illumination
on the escape routes. To ensure that the design will meet the
required levels at all times the data is de-rated, as required by the
standard, to cover the following factors:
i. Reduction in light as the battery voltage reduces during
discharge.
ii. Ageing of lamps in maintained circuits

OPEN (ANTI-PANIC) CORE AREAS
Areas larger than 60m2, open areas with an escape route passing through them, or hazards identified by the building risk assessment all require
emergency lighting. The current standard is easy to design for and to verify, promoting systems that provide good uniformity rather than ones that use
a few large output luminaires.

Reaching the light levels needed would normally be achieved by using
a conversion of the normal luminaire, or by using a tungsten projector

Care is needed to ensure that a reasonably uniform distribution is
achieved by whatever combination of luminaire and conversion kit
used. If tungsten projector units are selected, a co-efficient of
utilisation calculation has to be performed for the required value.

TESTING AND LOG BOOK


The Fire Safety Order require that appropriate testing is performed to
maintain compliance of the system. The system should include
adequate facilities for testing and recording the system condition.
These need to be appropriate for the specific site and should be
considered as part of the system design. Discussions with the user or
system designer should identify:
- The calibre and reliability of staff available to do the testing
- The level of difficulty in performing the test
- If discharge tests need to be done outside normal working hours,
or phased so only alternate luminaires are tested in buildings that
are permanently occupied

The testing requirements in the code of practice are:


• Function test
All emergency luminaires should be tested be breaking the supply
to them and checking that they operate satisfactorily. The supply
must then be restored and the charging indicators must be seen to
be operating correctly. This test must be performed at least once
per month and the results logged.
• Discharge test
The luminaires must be tested for their full rated duration period
and checked for satisfactory operation. The supply must then be
restored and the charging indicators rechecked. This test must be
performed at least annually and the results logged.
Central Battery Systems

MANUAL TESTING
If manual testing is utilised, the following points should be considered:
- Is a single switch to be used? Unless the whole building is to be
switched off, a separate switch should be used for each final
circuit. As the feed to non-maintained circuits must be taken from
the switch this will probably mean that the building will have to be
walked around twice, once to check the luminaires and once to
check that they are recharging
- Are luminaires to be individually switched? In practice, only a
single walk around the building will be needed. However, the test
switches could spoil the décor of the building and they must be of
a type that is tamper proof. After the tests, the performance of the
luminaires must be logged.

EMERGENCY SPACING TABLES
To enable photometric designs to be performed as required by BS 5266 pts 1 and 7, the following factors need to be used to ensure that the worst case
conditions are designed for.

Initial lamp lumens of the lamp must be derated by:


• Ballast lumen factor (for emergency circuits, these are independently tested and their % value is shown)
• K Factor for the effect of reduction in supply voltage as the battery discharges, and of cable voltage drop on central systems
• S Factor to compensate for the ageing of lamps during service life.

The effect of dirt on the diffuser must also be allowed for, so an allowance for 20% as recommended by ICEL has been built into these spacing tables.
If the design is being produced on a computer, similar allowance should be made.

System lumen reduction factors used in the following lumens chart are:

SYSTEM TYPE SELF-CONTAINED 24 VOLT SLAVE 50 & 110 VOLT SLAVE 230 VOLT INVERTER SLAVE
K Factor 0.85 0.65 0.7 0.95
S Factor 0.85 0.85 0.85 0.85

When applied with the appropriate Ballast Lumen Factors % with typical fluorescent lamps, they give the following Emergency Lighting Design Lumens
(ELDL) for typical fluorescent lamps which can be used for spacing calculations:

DESIGN PROCEDURE FOR CONVERTED MAINS LIGHTING LUMINAIRES


When normal mains luminaires are converted and utilised for emergency use, the procedure below should be followed:

1. The table of emergency lighting design lumens (above), should be consulted to determine the minimum emergency lamp output for the particular
lamp/circuit required, for use with either spacing tables or a computer design program.

2. The appropriate spacing table should then be selected and used, checking the following points:
Central Battery Systems

• That the shape of the polar curve corresponds with the luminaire to be used
• That the value of the output is similar (LOR and at the nadir. Variations can be compensated for, by determining a ratio for the lamp output value
obtained in 1)

3. The spacing limits for escape routes or open areas can then be read off for specific height and lamp outputs.

Note: If different values of minimum light level are needed, they can also be obtained by determining a ratio for the lamp output value i.e. To ensure a
minimum of 10 lux on the centre line of an escape route, a value 10 times greater must be applied to the chart value. So 2000 lumen lamp output gives
the same spacing to 10 lux as 200 lumens does for 1 lux.

USE OF SPACING TABLES WITH COMPUTER PROGRAMS


Computer programs can provide accurate values for specific applications, using data for the exact luminaire, at the precise mounting height and with
the actual emergency lamp output, for any luminaire configuration.

To quickly develop an initial spacing layout, the spacing values from the nearest table should be used. This can then be applied to the software and
modified as required, to obtain the optimum luminaire layout. Illuminance levels can then be calculated, verifying the system design as required by
BS 5266-1:1999 & EN 1838.

EMERGENCY LIGHTING SPACING TABLES
To enable photometric designs to be performed as required by BS 5266 pts 1 and 7, the following factors need to be used to ensure that the
worst case conditions are designed for.

Initial lamp lumens of the lamp must be derated by:


• Ballast lumen factor (for emergency circuits, these are independently tested and their % value is shown)
• K Factor for the effect of reduction in supply voltage as the battery discharges, and of cable voltage drop on central systems
• S Factor to compensate for the ageing of lamps during service life.

The effect of dirt on the diffuser must also be allowed for, so an allowance for 20% as recommended by ICEL has been built into these spacing
tables. If the design is being produced on a computer, similar allowance should be made.

System lumen reduction factors used in the following lumens chart are:

SYSTEM TYPE SELF-CONTAINED 24 VOLT SLAVE 50 & 110 VOLT SLAVE 230 VOLT INVERTER SLAVE

K Factor 0.85 0.65 0.7 0.95


S Factor 0.85 0.85 0.85 0.85

When applied with the appropriate Ballast Lumen Factors % with typical fluorescent lamps, they give the following Emergency Lighting Design
456 Lumens (ELDL) for typical fluorescent lamps which can be used for spacing calculations:

DESIGN PROCEDURE FOR CONVERTED MAINS LIGHTING LUMINAIRES


When normal mains luminaires are converted and utilised for emergency use, the procedure below should be followed:

1. The table of emergency lighting design lumens (above), should be consulted to determine the minimum emergency lamp output for the
particular lamp/circuit required, for use with either spacing tables or a computer design program.

2. The appropriate spacing table should then be selected and used, checking the following points:
• That the shape of the polar curve corresponds with the luminaire to be used
• That the value of the output is similar (LOR and at the nadir. Variations can be compensated for, by determining a ratio for the lamp
output value obtained in 1)

3. The spacing limits for escape routes or open areas can then be read off for specific height and lamp outputs.

Note: If different values of minimum light level are needed, they can also be obtained by determining a ratio for the lamp output value
i.e. To ensure a minimum of 10 lux on the centre line of an escape route, a value 10 times greater must be applied to the chart value.
So 2000 lumen lamp output gives the same spacing to 10 lux as 200 lumens does for 1 lux.

USE OF SPACING TABLES WITH COMPUTER PROGRAMS


Computer programs can provide accurate values for specific applications, using data for the exact luminaire, at the precise mounting height
and with the actual emergency lamp output, for any luminaire configuration.

To quickly develop an initial spacing layout, the spacing values from the nearest table should be used. This can then be applied to the software
and modified as required, to obtain the optimum luminaire layout. Illuminance levels can then be calculated, verifying the system design as
required by BS5266-1:1999 & EN1838.
