Controlling Emergency Lighting by Craig DiLouie

The LED revolution produced many luminaires with built-in switching and dimming. This facilitated a trend of using the same luminaires for both general and emergency lighting, powered by battery, backup generator, or UPS. This eliminates emergency units but creates a control challenge. The dual-function luminaires must be controllable for energy management and visual needs, while overriding these inputs to power to full brightness during a power failure. Adoption of LED lighting with built-in control functionality is facilitating using luminaires for both normal and emergency lighting.
