INTRODUCTION TO ICEL SCHEMES
This is a scheme of Product and Authenticated Photometric Registration for Emergency Lighting Luminaires and Conversion Modules. The scheme is open to the Members of ICEL who have had their product third party tested in an approved laboratory such as BSI or Lighting Industry Association Laboratory. The requirements for compliance are set out in the scheme documentation which is available for free download from link . The benefits of this registration are to confirm the quality of the products and provide the necessary data to enable the emergency lighting application designer to design the most efficient scheme and are of “Bench Mark Quality”.
This is a scheme of registration of the ICEL Member Company meeting the Requirements for the Re-Engineering of Luminaires for Emergency Lighting Use as given in the ICEL documentation. The company concerned must demonstrate at each audit – carried out by ICEL – that the products they convert to emergency lighting meet all of the requirements of the scheme. The benefits of this scheme is to confirm that the luminaires have been converted to the same standards as are required for an originally produced emergency luminaire to BSEN 60598-2-22 and because of the auditing process are of “Bench Mark Quality”.
This is a scheme of product registration of Emergency Lighting Central Power Supply Systems meeting the stringent requirements of the European standard EN 50171. The scheme is open to ICEL Members and requires that the testing to the standard is third party approved. This ensures that the products registered under this scheme are “Bench Mark Quality”.
This is a scheme of product registration of Battery Cell(s) and Batteries for Emergency Lighting Use. This ICEL scheme is open to ICEL Members and is intended to bridge the gap between the reliability established by current international battery standards and the reliability required for emergency lighting. Current IEC standards do not go far enough to ensure batteries meet the life requirements under the conditions imposed by emergency lighting. Specifically, in emergency lighting, the prevailing temperature often exceeds the rating intended by the IEC battery standards and residual battery capacity after a four-year life is required to be much greater. Products registered under this scheme are “Bench Mark Quality”.
