Emergency Lights Battery-Backup,Operation and Replacement
As society is advancing with time, we notice that there is an increased advancement or the rate of advancement in the use of electronics. These electrical appliances have created so much convenience for us that in the present day if we cannot imagine a day without any of these electrical devices such as a washing machine, your electrical oven, your electric car and last but not the least is the use of your devices such as mobile phones, Android phones, etc. Living a day without any of these can create severe problems in our everyday day-to-day convenience and things were just go back to being primal. one such device that has come to light literally, is the use of emergency lights. What are emergency lights? These are the special sort of electrical bugs or torches that when upon a sudden breakdown in an electrical power station, these electrical devices turn themselves on by themselves. This is a very convenient electrical appliance because if it were not present the main problem would arise which would be that people are just staggering here and there in the darkness. However, with this device being present in such facilities this is not the case, these devices will turn themselves on in case of darkness because of the sensors that are present in them and help you find the way to your path or destination.
Emergency lights working is quite simple and it consists of several fixed connections within the circuit board that can cause the light to switch over from the main supply to the backup supply. It usually involves a small type of battery which is being charged by the main power supply and when the light goes out the power it’s shifted from the main supply to that small battery and the circuits then switch over, this is how the emergency light system works. There are two primary types of emergency lighting systems, there are maintained and non-maintained. Maintained emergency lighting systems are those which are used in everyday usual routines as well as during the power failures when the light goes out. As explained above these are the types of emergency electrical systems that receive electrical output directly from the main supply. These are special electrical systems that automatically turn themselves on and they stay on without any intervention from outside sources because they have a small battery attached to them that will supposedly work for several hours and even days. The non-maintained emergency light systems are those which will only turn themselves on when there is an emergency or when there is an electrical outage meaning that the electricity from the supply is not coming due to any reason.
Emergency lights when installed, need to be thoroughly checked and connected to the right sources of electricity. The reason for that is these emergency lights have a smaller battery of their own which if not connected to the main supply can cause the battery to discharge more as compared to being charged therefore, when the light goes out the battery will not be supplying the power that is needed to run those emergency lights. This can be quite problematic for the people in that building or house because they will be completely blinded unless they find a torch on their own. Hence, make sure that you make the right electrical connections when installing these batteries, the wiring is done properly in a manner that when the breaker trips the emergency lights switch themselves on by shifting on the backup battery. Always try to make sure that the house circuit to which you are connecting the electrical emergency light systems are turned off because if you accidentally touch a livewire, it can cause severe burns as well as a cardiac arrest which is not desirable in any situation. You can install these emergency lights on a wall or in the ceiling, either way, it will provide you electricity during a power outage. When you go out to buy emergency lights always consider the ones which have a longer battery life these are the ones usually known as an LED emergency. The reason for that is these emergency light systems have a greater lifespan and a better quality of battery as compared to the conventional incandescent and halogen lights. When installing these emergency lights, you also have to make sure that these are installed in a manner that makes sure that all the exit pathways of your building or your house are properly well lit so that you have a path to exit out.
For the replacement of the battery for these emergency light systems, you have to make sure that the way you installed them is perfectly known to you. The reason for that is if you prove something unknown to you it will Cause an Electrocution to you, which can be devastating provided what level of voltage was touching your skin. So, to make sure that it doesn’t happen to you, make sure that that the wires are known to you. When you have known what the circuit systems are, turn off the main power supply and very carefully disconnect the battery that has been attached as a backup, then attach the wires carefully so that there are no sparks. Many batteries can be used for displacement, the best, however, in this regard would be the Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4, or LFP) type of batteries. The reason for that is that these types of batteries as compared to nickel-cadmium batteries have a longer life span and therefore will last much longer than the other types of batteries. The Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4, or LFP) also have an advantage in the endurance of the battery, these can withstand drastic weather changes and not just that they are highly resilient to extremely hot temperatures, unlike the nickel-cadmium batteries which might leak or in the case of lead-acid batteries that just simply explode. These batteries therefore prove to be the best in this case, they are also compatible with almost all light sources and they work best with LED lights thus, ensuring the best results.
