LED light source makes emergency lighting smaller
Emergency lighting in a fittings 3 cm in diameter — the JSB Micropoint from Cooper Lighting.
The use of an LED as the light-source in the flush-mounted JSB Micropoint recessed emergency luminaire from Cooper Lighting makes possible a diameter of just 3 cm. This light source has a life of 60 000 h, and the fitting delivers uniform illumination, making it ideal for coverage of open areas. Micropoint is available in maintained or non-maintained versions. Its very small size is said to enable it to combine the role of emergency lighting with background lighting in hotels, pubs, nightclubs, reception areas or retail interiors. In maintained mode and while the mains supply is healthy, the light output can be set at low, normal or high level. If the mains fails, the light output reverts to the correct emergency level. For ease of installation, the battery and control gear are housed in a remote pod with simple plug-in connectors. The green status LED is incorporated into the luminaire body.
