Lights in case of power failure for elevators to save energy and ensure brightness

The new elevator safety standard EN81-20/50, issued in Europe in 2014, requests that lights in case of power failure be installed on the elevator cage as a new measure to improve the level of safety. An elevator designer was having a hard time choosing the right illumination that runs on the pre-installed 12V/24V emergency batteries. The brightness required by the standard needed to be satisfied as well.

Among IDEC’s LED lighting, the customer adopted products that met their needs. It was the LED lighting that consumes less energy yet provides sufficient brightness, and satisfies the standard requirements.

The challenge: quality and cost when adding illumination that meets the new elevator safety standard
