Repeatedly, electrical equipment connected to power grids and certain facility equipment is exposed to electrical transients (ie. surges) that cause damage to internal electrical components. As a result, electrical surge is a major cause of premature equipment failure.
Emergency lighting equipment is expected to perform when normal power is lost, but the truth is that these devices are exposed to the same electrical transients as everything else in the system. For this reason, IOTA® emergency lighting products are carefully engineered and manufactured for optimal performance under repeated exposure to electrical surge.
Our detailed Tech Brief Protecting Your Egress Lighting Against Surge explores the impacts of electrical transients on emergency lighting equipment and how IOTA designs are evaluated to withstand these conditions.
