Central Battery Systems
System Design
Central battery system based emergency lighting is
ideal for medium to large installations. For projects
where central control and testing is desirable, a
central battery system is a viable and cost effective
alternative to self-contained emergency lighting
products. The main advantages of central battery
systems over self-contained systems are:
To complement the range of central battery
systems, Eaton also offers a wide selection of
slave luminaires and conversion modules for mains
fluorescent luminaires. EasiCheck automatic selftesting can be readily incorporated into central
systems.
• Testing and maintenance is much easier to
carry out
• Battery replacement is much quicker and less disruptive
• Battery life is generally 10 years or more
• Luminaires can be centrally controlled
• High light levels can easily be achieved
• The emergency lighting system can be completely unobtrusive
• Loadstar AC/DC Systems (See page 385)
Eaton manufactures a wide range of central battery
emergency lighting systems. Standard products
include AC/AC static inverter systems, with the
addition of a new compact, competitively priced
unit for smaller installations. A comprehensive
range of traditional AC/DC systems are also
available, including an economy range designed for

Lighting Design Considerations
9
Current legislation and design increases the attraction of using
central battery systems to provide emergency lighting in a
building.
In particular, an increase in the use of static inverter systems,
which provide an alternative source of power to normal mains
luminaires. These considerations can be summarised as follows:
1. BS 5266 part 7 (EN 1838) specifies increased emergency light levels than previous standards
2. Slave luminaires, operating from AC/DC and AC/AC central systems, offer a higher light output and improved spacing characteristics over comparable self-contained versions of the same luminaire
3. Compact fluorescent lamps make ideal slave luminaires, offering high efficiency and appropriate light output for areas with low ceilings
4. There is an increasing requirement from architects and users
to make emergency lighting as unobtrusive as possible, so utilisation of the normal mains luminaires is an ideal solution
Through the use of dedicated slave luminaires and conversion
modules for mains fluorescent luminaires, these considerations
can be catered for by both AC/DC and AC/AC central systems. An
illustration of the increased output that can be expected from 8W
slave luminaires compared to self-contained versions is shown in
figure 1.
Fig 1. Light output of different types of luminaire (nominal lamp lumens
based on standard 8 watt fitting)
When performing photometric calculations for converted mains
luminaires with static inverter systems, the full design lumen
output of the luminaire must be taken into account, as the lamps
are powered by conventional ballasts. It is important to ensure
that the use of such high output luminaires in low ceiling areas
does not exceed the uniformity factor limitations. The utilisation
factor should be taken at zero reflectance in line with BS 5266 Pts.

Notes
1.Conversion modules are designed to be incorporated into a
conventional mains luminaire. During normal conditions the
luminaire operates at full brightness (using the normal switched
mains supply and conventional control gear). In emergency conditions the luminaire continues to operate at reduced brightness (with the emergency lamp being powered from the
conversion module instead of the conventional control gear). Conversion modules are ideal for use with mains luminaires which have louvres with a sharp cut off angle, or for projects where the mains luminaires have multiple tubes, but only one tube is required to be illuminated during emergency conditions.
2.Static inverters provide mains voltage output during both
normal and emergency conditions. They are designed to run
conventional mains fittings at full brightness even in emergency conditions. Static inverters are ideal for projects with large open areas, or hazardous areas requiring higher than normal emergency lighting levels, or for powering compact fluorescent luminaires where there is often insufficient space within the fitting to accommodate a conversion module.
3.Static inverter systems operate the emergency luminaires at
full brightness throughout the emergency autonomy period,
which usually results in significantly improved luminaire spacing
for mains slave luminaires compared with an equivalent low
voltage AC/DC unit. In addition, the combination of higher
supply voltage and the resultant reduced input current reduces installation costs by allowing the use of smaller distribution cables than would be required with a lower voltage AC/DC system.

System Control and Mode of Operation
It is a requirement of any correctly designed emergency lighting
system that the emergency lighting is activated both in the event
of complete mains failure, and also in the event of a local mains
failure. The emergency lighting system can have luminaires that
are maintained or non-maintained. Similarly, the central battery
unit can also be maintained or non-maintained operation. The
following diagrams explain how activation of the emergency
lighting is achieved, using the main types of central battery
systems.
Central systems with dedicated slave luminaires

a. Non-maintained central battery unit with sub-circuit monitors
With this method, relays are used to monitor the normal lighting supplies. The contacts of these relays are wired in a
series loop such that in the event of failure of any of the normal lighting supplies, the loop is broken, sending a signal to the central battery unit to activate all of the emergency luminaires. Details of purpose-made remote sub-circuit monitor units can be found in the Loadstar product section.

c. Maintained central battery unit with remote hold off relays
The maintained output from the battery unit is fed to a number of remote hold off relays throughout the building. The coil of
the hold off relay is connected to the unswitched side of the
local normal lighting supply. Assuming this supply is healthy,
the relay will pull in, opening the contacts and preventing
power from reaching the slave luminaires. In the event of a
local mains failure, the relay drops out, the contacts close and
the emergency luminaires in that particular area are illuminated from the maintained circuit of the battery unit.

In the event of a local mains failure, the relay drops out, the

In the event of a complete mains failure, the system operates in
a similar manner, except that the slave luminaires are illuminated
from the battery supply. Details of purpose-made remote hold off

With this option, the normal mains luminaires are fitted with
a conversion module, enabling them to also operate as emergency luminaires in the event of mains failure. Each conversion module includes a changeover relay which, under normal circumstances, is energised by a permanent supply from the unswitched side of the normal lighting circuit. Whilst energised, it connects the lamp to the conventional mains control gear within the luminaire allowing it to operate as a

standard mains fitting, powered via a switched live connection
to the mains ballast. Should the normal lighting fail, the relay
within the conversion module drops out, disconnecting the
lamp from the conventional control gear and connecting it to the
inverter within the conversion module. This illuminates the lamp
at reduced brightness. In multi-lamp luminaires, the conversion
module only operates a single lamp in the emergency mode. All
other lamps will extinguish upon mains failure.

e. Static inverter unit with conventional mains fittings
A static inverter runs conventional mains luminaires at full brightness during both mains healthy and mains failure conditions. However, there is usually a requirement for local switching of the luminaires during mains healthy conditions, with automatic illumination in the event of mains failure.

Local switching with automatic illumination in the event of mains
failure can be easily achieved by use of the ACM1 module, which
is purpose-designed for this application. A detailed description of
the ACM1 module, including a typical wiring schematic, can be

Battery Type
Eaton offers a choice of five different battery types:
Each battery type has specific characteristics. In order to assist
with the choice of battery, full details of the characteristics and
benefits can be found in the Loadstar and Static Inverter System
product pages. The table below (fig. 2) provides a comparative
guide to these characteristics.
• Valve regulated lead acid (10 year design life)
• Valve regulated lead acid (3-5 year design life)
• Vented nickel-cadmium
• High performance plante lead acid
The most popular battery type is valve regulated lead acid with a
10 year design life. This type of battery is used on approximately
90% of projects due to its competitive cost, good life
characteristics, ease of maintenance and compact size.
• Flat plate lead acid

Battery Room Ventilation
Vented batteries, such as nickel cadmium, plante and flat plate
lead acid emit potentially explosive gases under charge conditions.
Therefore it is important when selecting rooms for emergency
lighting central battery systems with these types of battery, to
calculate the amount of ventilation required. The required number
of air changes per hour (A) is given by the following formula:
A = 0.045 x N x I
V
Where:
N =Number of cells in the battery
V = Volume of room in cubic metres
I = Charge rate in Amperes
This formula will give the number of air changes per hour required
during boost charge conditions. On float charge (systems are
on float charge for most of their service life), the amount of gas
emitted is approximately 1.5% of that liberated whilst on boost
charge and under most circumstances this will be dissipated by
natural ventilation, and will not present a hazard. However, we
recommend that the boost charge condition is allowed for at the
design stage to ensure the appropriate decision on ventilation
requirements is made.
Although Valve Regulated Lead-Acid Batteries require little
ventilation under normal operating conditions, it is good practice to
apply the formula to calculate the number of air changes required
to achieve minimum risk under battery fault or failure conditions.

Central Battery Systems
System Design
System Sizing
When sizing the system, it is important to allow for the full input
requirement of the light fittings rather than the lamp wattages.
AC/DC systems
When using conversion modules fitted to conventional mains
fittings, the lamp will be illuminated directly from the mains
ballast during normal mains healthy operation and via the inverter
during emergency conditions. When being driven from the battery
unit via the conversion module, the emergency lamp will be
illuminated at less than full output, and as a result, the fitting will
consume a reduced input power.
AC/AC systems
When utilising a static inverter system, the fitting operates at full
output during both mains healthy and mains failure conditions.
When sizing a suitable static inverter to power a particular load,
it is important to consider the input VA and the input (not lamp)
wattage of the emergency luminaires. The total VA requirement
defines the inverter module size, and the total input wattage
defines the battery size.
Therefore, to establish the correct inverter module size, the
power factor correction (PFC) rating of the luminaires must be
considered in addition to lamp wattage and control gear losses.
High frequency control gear circuits have excellent PFC ratings,
usually of around 0.96 to 0.98. This compares with 0.85 to 0.9 for
equivalent lamp magnetic control gear circuits. Care should be
taken when low wattage compact fluorescent lamps are used,
utilising high frequency gear or high PFC versions where possible.
Low power factor versions can have PFC ratings of only 0.45 to
0.5, thereby greatly increasing the inverter rating required for the
system. If utilising low voltage lighting powered via step-down
transformers, it is essential to allow for the efficiency and power
factor of the step-down transformers. Table (fig. 3) and graph (fig.
4) illustrate the relationship between wattage and VA rating for a
typical system. For a detailed explanation of conversion operation,
please refer to page 366. For details of the power consumption of
slave luminaires and converted luminaires (when operating in the
emergency mode via a conversion module), please refer to
page 413.
Note: BS EN 60598-2-22 prohibits the use of glow starters in
fluorescent luminaires used for emergency lighting.

Additional Considerations
Spare capacity
Fire protection of cables
With any central battery system it is important to bear in mind that
it is difficult to extend the system at a later date unless capacity
has been allowed for at the design stage. For this reason, we
would strongly recommend that some spare capacity is included
when selecting the central battery system rating. Our technical
department is available to provide assistance. Contact the Central
System team, Tel: 01302 303317 or E-mail: CBUsystemsUK@

Cables should be routed through areas of low fire risk.
The following cables and wiring systems should be used.
a) Cables with inherently high resistance to attack by fire
i) Mineral-insulated copper-sheathed cable in accordance with BS 6207: Part 1
ii) Cable in accordance with BS 6387. The cable should be at least category B
b) Wiring systems requiring additional fire protection.
i) PVC-insulated cables in accordance with BS 6004 in rigid conduits
ii) PVC-insulated cables in accordance with BS 6004 in steel conduit
9
iii) PVC-insulated and sheathed steel wire armoured cable in accordance with BS 6346 or BS 5467
Systems should be installed in accordance with IEE Regulations
and BS 5266. Additional fire protection may apply. For example, if
cables are buried in the structure of the building.

Cable sizes
Fig 5.
When selecting cable sizes, due regard should be paid to
limitations imposed by voltage drop and physical strength. Each
conductor shall be of copper, having a nominal cross sectional
area of not less than 1mm2. BS 5266 states that the voltage drop
in cables connecting a central battery to a slave luminaire should
not exceed 4% of the system nominal voltage at maximum rated
current.
Using copper conductors, volts drop can be calculated per pair of
conductors as shown in table fig. 5. Total volts drop on a circuit
can be calculated according to the formula:

VDT = I x VDM x D
The problems of volt drop can be overcome by:
Where:
• Using higher system voltages (= lower currents and therefore lower volt drop)
VDT = volts drop total
I
= maximum load current
VDM = volts drop per amp per metre (obtained from fig. 5)
D
= cable run in metres
• Using larger cables (= lower resistance and therefore lower volt drop)
• Using multiple outgoing circuits (= less current per circuit and therefore lower volt drop)
Example:
Fig. 6 and 7 show an example comparison for a central battery
system with a total connected load of 1500W and a 50m run of
16mm2 cable supplying the luminaires.
This example shows that for this configuration, a 230V system
would be most suitable to meet the requirements of BS 5266. The
low current value combined with greater allowable volt drop would
enable much smaller cables to be used.

The Loadstar range of AC/AC static inverter
units offer the opportunity to create a discreet
emergency lighting system, utilising suitable
standard mains luminaires without modification.
Small or decorative compact fluorescent luminaires
can also be easily incorporated. Loadstar AC/
AC systems offer many benefits, including
higher light levels in emergency mode, as all
lamps in the luminaire are usually energised by
the emergency supply. Mains voltage and lower
currents enable cables of smaller cross sectional
area to be used with low voltage AC/DC systems,
without unacceptable levels of voltage drop. The
proven and reliable modular design ensures a cost
effective emergency lighting solution.
• BSI Kitemarked for peace of mind
• Cost effective modular design
• Standard mains luminaires used for emergency lighting
• Fully complies with BS EN50171:2001
• Digital display to clearly indicate system status
• EasiCheck compatible versions available
• Low maintenance

Loadstar AC/AC Systems
System Operation
Standard Specification
• In mains healthy condition, the system charges the batteries and stores power, ready for emergency operation
• Cubicles
•
In mains healthy condition, the power to luminaires designated for emergency use is supplied from the normal mains, via a by- pass contactor inside the cubicle. This may be switched, using a “maintained lights” switch (optional extra) or by use of a remote switch connected to terminals provided
•Local change-over switching can be achieved using an ACM1 module, controlling single or multiple luminaires (if fed from common switched mains supply - max load 750VA). The
system will then supply normal mains power or emergency
power via the inverter, dependant on status of mains supply at
the static inverter
9
•In the event of a mains failure, the system provides emergency power to dedicated mains slave or designated standard mains luminaires, until mains power is restored (or for the rated duration of the system in the event of extended mains failure)
• Output voltage, from the system via the inverter, is 230V AC nominal
•
Standard mains luminaires require no modification to operate with the static inverter (unless ACM1 change-over module is fitted integrally). All lamps in multi-lamp luminaires will be lit during mains failure, unless separate control gear is provided for individual lamps
• Sub-circuit monitoring and hold off relays can be added to the system to energise the emergency luminaires in the event of a localised mains circuit failure, if the ACM1 module is not used
• Full detail of ACM1 module is shown on page 366

Installation Notes
System Design
• Note - BS EN 60598-2-22 prohibits the use of glow starters in fluorescent luminaires used for emergency lighting.
• To ensure a suitably rated system is selected, list the luminaires to be used, with their characteristics, to determine the wattage and VA power rating of the required inverter
• A full set of installation, operating and maintenance instructions is supplied with each system to assist the installer carry out the work efficiently and safely
•
Adequate ventilation has been provided in the cubicle to allow
a safe dispersal of gases but it is important to remember that when choosing where to locate systems, particularly those with large batteries, attention must be paid to ensuring a build-
up of potentially explosive gases is avoided
•Where possible, utilise luminaires with high frequency control
gear, compact fluorescent luminaires with high power factor
correction, or dedicated 230V AC mains slave luminaires, to
minimise the required VA rating of the inverter
• Using uncorrected compact fluorescent luminaires with poor power factor, will increase the size of inverter module required, leading to increased capital cost and space requirements
•Please refer to the system design (see page 380) section for
details of ventilation calculations
• See page 381 for an example of determining the required inverter rating
• Warning notices should be displayed on entry doors to battery rooms:
• For details of static inverter systems with ratings above those listed, please contact our central systems technical sales department
BATTERY ROOM. EXTINGUISH ALL NAKED LIGHTS BEFORE ENTERING. NO SMOKING
•It should be noted that multiple smaller units can often be more
cost effective than a single large system. Distribution costs can be substantially reduced by locating units throughout a large building
• BS EN 60598-2-22 prohibits the use of glow starters in fluorescent luminaires used for emergency lighting
•Note - systems specified for emergency lighting use should not have other services connected to them

Many features normally only associated with larger
units are included in the standard specification of
the Compact AC/AC static inverter system. The
inverter has a rated output of 500VA/400W or
600VA/510W and benefits from 4 independently
fused outputs, battery deep discharge protection,
automatic temperature compensation and a
clear, informative system status display panel.
The unit also fully complies with the latest BS
EN 50171:2001 standard. An output voltage
of 230V AC permits any suitable, unmodified
mains luminaires to be operated at full output in
emergency mode.
• Competitive 500VA or 600VA static inverter system
• Compact - ideal for smaller installations
• Fully complies with BS EN 50171:2001
• Four separately fused outputs
• Digital display to clearly indicate system status
• EasiCheck compatible version available

• Hold Off Relay Monitor
•In the event of a mains failure, the system provides emergency power to dedicated mains slave or designated standard mains luminaires, until mains power is restored (or for the rated duration of the system in the event of extended mains failure)
• Output voltage, from the system via the inverter, is 230V AC nominal
9
• Local change-over switching can be effected using an ACM1 module, controlling single or multiple luminaires (if fed from common switched mains supply)
•
Suitable standard mains luminaires* require no modification to operate with the static inverter (unless ACM1 change-over module is integral). All lamps in multi-lamp luminaires will be lit during mains failure, unless separate control gear is provided for individual lamps.
*High inrush LED or compact fluorescent may not be suitable
• Sub-circuit monitoring and hold off relays can be added to the system to energise the emergency luminaires in the event of a localised mains circuit failure, if the ACM1 module is not used
•Full details of modes of operation is shown on pages 376 379
• Sub Circuit Monitor
•ACM1s
Full details of these options can be found on page 399
Design and Installation Notes
• To ensure the system is suitably rated, list the luminaires to be used, with their characteristics, to ensure the wattage and VA power rating of the inverter is not exceeded
• Using fluorescent luminaires with poor power factor will increase the VA load
• Note - BS EN 60598-2-22 prohibits the use of glow starters in fluorescent luminaires used for emergency lighting.
• A full set of installation, operating and maintenance instructions is supplied with each system to assist the installer carry out the work efficiently and safely
•Adequate ventilation has been provided in the cubicle to allow
a safe dispersal of gases but it is important to remember that when choosing where to locate systems, particularly those with large batteries, attention must be paid to ensuring a build-
up of potentially explosive gases is avoided
• Full details of ACM1 module is shown on page 366
•Please refer to the system design (see page 380) section for

during and after tests, EasiCheck 1.5 automatically
tests the emergency lighting luminaires and central
battery system at a user controlled, convenient,
non-disruptive time, then gathers the test results
and displays them in a simple to understand
manner at a central control panel. EasiCheck 1.5
has been designed to ensure quick and simple
installation, ease of operation and simple system
re-configuration. System extensions and changes
can easily be incorporated without the need for
specialist software or re-programming.

System Operation
The main element of the EC1002TS is a large (120mm x 90mm
visible area) touch screen display, which provides comprehensive
user information and also acts as a multifunctional keypad.
An EasiCheck interface module is fitted into all suitable dedicated
emergency luminaires and mains luminaires converted for
emergency operation.
The EC1002TS touch screen display automatically reconfigures
to suit the selected function, for example, if the change device
text menu option is selected, the touch screen is automatically
formatted as a full QWERTY keyboard to enable fast and simple
text entry.
• Each module shall be addressed using a hand held programmer during installation with a unique address number in the range
0-250
The use of the touch screen display enables a wide range of
user and engineering facilities to be incorporated into the panel
whilst still offering simple operation. There are a number of
system status LEDs (power on, emergency mode, general fault,
system fault, comms fault, luminaire fault, test in progress,
disable luminaire, fault indication) designed to give clear status
information to non-technical users.
Panel is used to facilitate following functions:
• Every luminaire is connected to a 2 core data BUS cable in a loop configuration, which is linked back to the control panel.
A single panel can accommodate up to 250 luminaires
• It is important to maintain accurate ‘as fitted’ drawings to identify the respective luminaire and its assigned address/location
• Text information can be allocated to each system component, during commissioning by an Eaton service engineer
• The panel can then be programmed to carry out automatic test sequences according to BS 5266/EN 50172 or any regional testing regime. Testing can also be initiated manually. All test data is sent back and stored at the control panel. Additionally, the system carries out continuous real time monitoring of all connected devices
• Set up test types and times
• Initiate manual tests
• Display real time single luminaire status
• View fault log/panel configuration
• Download/upload fault log and panel configuration
• Re-configure luminaire text locations for ease of installation
and commissioning
• In the event of a fault, the precise location of the device is displayed at the control panel along with accurate details of the nature of the fault, time/date stamp and an alarm is raised
• The system can be enhanced by networking up to 63 panels. Central PC monitoring can also be incorporated

Central Battery Systems
Slave Luminaire Technical Data
Slave luminaires for use with central emergency lighting systems
must be compatible with the central battery supply unit.
The most common types are:
• Dedicated slave luminaires, with specially designed housings and circuits
• Converted mains luminaires, which have been modified by the addition of an emergency circuit, normally to operate on 110V AC/DC supplies
• Mains luminaires which are suitable to be powered by 230V AC inverter systems
To be compatible with the power supply unit and to comply with
the luminaire product standard, whilst being installed to meet the
requirements of the BS 5266 Pt.1 code of practice, the luminaires
should meet the following requirements:
• Voltage compatibility - the luminaire operating range must be within the central system output voltage range, minus an additional 4% cable voltage drop
• Static inverter systems - luminaires must fully meet the requirements of EN 60598-2-22, which ensures they are suitable for use as emergency luminaires
Eaton’s systems and slave luminaires meet these requirements
in full.
