Automated & Emergency Lighting | RCD Testing

Automated & Emergency Light

Exit and Emergency lighting is a critical aspect in protecting life in the event of a fire or emergency. Exit and emergency lighting installed and maintained in accordance with AS 2293 Parts 1, 2 and 3, provides an illuminated path of egress from the building to nominated exits and emergency assembly areas.

 

Our Electrical technicians will address the design and installation of an emergency lighting system in a building, the system’s maintenance requirements and the performance requirements of the products that make up these emergency lighting systems.

 

The Standard states that a full battery discharge of each emergency and exit light must be performed every 6 months and written records of these tests must be kept. It is critical for building occupant safety that the correct type and quantity of lights are installed in the correct locations.

 

H&D Electrical are experts in designing, installing and maintaining all types of Exit and Emergency lighting systems including;

  • Central Battery Systems

  • Stand alone single point units

  • Nexus LX & Nexus RF systems

  • Clevertronics Systems

Use of technology

All testing is completed via our field technology devices and electronic reporting and certification is made available through our client interface portal.

RCD Testing

RCD devices are sometimes known as earth leakage circuit breakers and are commonly referred to as being safety switches, but an RCD has other features and the correct RCD device must be installed in your workplace.

 

An RCD switch should monitor the flow of electricity through the circuit it is connected to. If any faults that could lead to electrocution are detected by a functioning RCD, the device will shut off the power to the circuit in milliseconds preventing serious injury caused by electric shock.

RCD Test & Tag

To comply with the RCD testing requirements of AS/NZS 3760:2003 commercial workplaces must have the RCD devices tested and tagged every 3 months. This procedure is in place to ensure the RCD responds properly to any faulty situation and in the correct time frame. H&D Electrical has the expertise and latest testing equipment to carry out your scheduled RCD testing to ensure your workplace is safe and compliant.
