Emergency Lighting cable, Prysmian’s guide to BS5266-1:2011


DANLERS launch new ‘Intelligent’ Photocell Batten Mount Control


D


ANLERS NEW Batten-mounted ‘Intelligent’ Photocell switch is capable of delivering significant energy savings at low cost. By virtue of its radical new calibration process, this control can distinguish the difference between artificial and natural light delivered to the photocell and by doing so removes the site specific addition of artificial light from any decision to automatically switch the lights on/off. This minimises hysteresis drift and reduces the risk of false triggering or ‘hunting’. This technology has a GB patent pending No. 1219746.3. This UK manufactured control mounts onto the end of lighting battens via the 20mm knock out and comes with a 1metre lead to connect to the ballast. It can switch lighting loads of up to 10 amps (6 amps of fluorescent).

he code of practice for emergency lighting, BS 5266-1 was revised and then reissued in November 2011. To help installers and specifiers keep up with these requirements, Prysmian has published a guide, the latest in its series of FP guides to British Standards. BS 5266-1:2011 is a full revision and it replaces the 2005 edition of BS 5266-1. The revision gives recommendations and guidance on the design, installation and wiring cable selection for electrical emergency escape lighting systems. This brings it more closely in line with the British Standard for fire alarms, BS5839-1:2002. BS 5839-1:2002 was the first British Standard to call upon ‘standard’ and ‘enhanced’ fire resistant cables and now BS5266-1 adopts this criteria of two performance levels for circuit integrity in the event of fire. Prysmian fire resistant cables FP200 Gold and FP PLUS already meet these criteria and are readily available. ·
