Cooper's stylish LED-based exit sign requires minimal maintenance

Feb. 11, 2007
Date Announced: 11 Feb 2007 New from Cooper Lighting and Security is the Menvier Evoled range of exit signs, which offer the long-life and low-maintenance benefits of LED technology, together with high energy efficiency and a stylish design.Fully compliant with the demanding performance requirements of EN1838, Evoled provides maintained operation with a 3-hour duration and can be specified as a self-contained unit or as a slave unit for use with static inverters.Reliable operation is ensured by a 60,000 hour LED light source, which on the self-contained versions is automatically monitored by an integral self-test facility, thereby further reducing the maintenance requirements. This facility uses light-measuring technology to verify the actual output of the individual LEDs during testing. The self-contained versions can also be specified to operate with Cooper’s Easicheck central testing system, if required.With its long life and low energy consumption, Evoled is ideal for use wherever the emergency lighting standard BS5266:1 2005 calls for exit signs to be operated in maintained mode because the building’s occupants may be unfamiliar with their surroundings – for example, in leisure centres, shops, railway stations and airports.Available in a choice of white or silver colour finishes, the new exit sign features a screwless snap-together design with a self-locking, clip-in legend panel - making it quick and easy to assemble.About Cooper Lighting and SecurityBased in Doncaster, Cooper Lighting and Security Ltd was formed in 2000 by the merger of three companies - Crompton Lighting, Menvier and JSB – which had been acquired by Cooper Industries in the late 1990s.
