New Software Makes Light Work of Configuring Emergency Lighting

16 Sep 2020

Fire and life safety systems manufacturer, Advanced, has launched a new generation of highly intuitive configuration software for its LuxIntelligent emergency light testing solution.

Designed with installers and commissioning technicians in mind, Advanced’s ConfigTool for LuxIntelligent allows users to build both complex and straightforward emergency lighting systems with ease and speed.

The benefits of the new ConfigTool extend far beyond easy programming of the LuxIntelligent lighting panel itself, providing full remote control of menu screen options via a ‘virtual terminal’ and allowing you to pre-plan entire systems remotely, saving valuable time on site.

Favoured by technicians for its ease of use in commissioning large-scale, networked systems covering multiple areas, floors and buildings, the new ConfigTool offers improved system visibility. Its updated interface provides an at-a-glance view of all available loops and their remaining capacity. In addition, devices can now be filtered by test group or zone location for quick review.

The new software also simplifies maintenance of existing systems. To add and remove devices, you simply amend the serial number of the addressed device that needs replacing and upload the configuration directly to the panel. Event logs and configuration files can be downloaded via laptop allowing you to check the status of the panel and devices and create essential back-ups. Meanwhile, fully customisable test schedules can be set up with ease to ensure BS 5266-1 compliance.

Matt Jones, Advanced’s Emergency Lighting Business Manager, said: “The new ConfigTool for LuxIntelligent makes light work of installing and maintaining emergency lighting systems. We’ve listened carefully to customer feedback and focused our design process on areas that will save the most time and create the greatest ease of use. Our R&D team has refined the user experience to make the process of using the software, and ultimately the system, as smart and intuitive as possible.

“With its updated user interface and straightforward navigation, configuring new systems and performing routine tasks on existing systems to ensure compliance becomes effortless, and can often be done remotely via ‘virtual terminal’.”
