DualGuard-S also incorporates addressable charger technology that increases the reliability of the charger and further reduces maintenance costs.
The new range of low power battery block sensors reduces operational complexity through improved monitoring and testing, with the results and messages available via email. The findings can also be viewed through the TFT display or the VisionGuard visualisation software. This level of early warning helps to keep the system in full health and lowers running costs for building owners.
The system is easy to program and edit, right down to luminaire level remotely via the web-enabled, cybersecure interface or via the intuitive colour touchscreen LED display.
Maintenance managers can then easily set up access permissions via the LED display to prevent unauthorised operation. All essential system information is visible at a glance, via an intuitive menu, available in multiple languages. An integrated web interface is supplied as standard, allowing messages such as power failure, deep discharge protection, charging battery faults, isolation faults, control circuit faults and the device status to be sent to up to 6 email addresses.
"Emergency lighting is present in almost all commercial buildings, which cannot be said for many other technologies, whether it's exit sign luminaires or safety luminaires for illuminating escape routes and other particularly high-risk areas," says Eaton’s Jean Luc Scheer, business leader for Emergency Lighting." The challenge for modern emergency lighting systems is to safely network all functions of an emergency lighting system in order to process project-specific requirements whilst minimising the cost of installation and set-up. Thanks to the new data networking capability of the DualGuard-S platform, we are very well placed."
Eaton was the first company to be awarded UL test lab status for cybersecurity, and all new Eaton systems and devices with internet access undergo rigorous inspection and testing to ensure they are cybersecure, including vulnerability and penetration testing. Eaton’s is the first emergency lighting web controller to meet the exacting UL cybersecurity standards.
We make peace of mind work.*
