How to Test
Testing is important for building safety and (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) compliance. Most feature small internal batteries that constantly charge while hard-wired to your electrical system. When AC power to the building or facility is lost, these battery systems provide power for emergency operation. The and emergency lamp heads must be tested for 90 seconds every month and 90 minutes once a year to comply with standards.
Testing is simple. The majority of emergency light models feature a simple push-to-test button that temporarily shuts off AC power and tests the battery. When this button is pressed the lamp heads should illuminate. If the unit’s lamp heads do not illuminate then the battery is most likely not functioning correctly.
