    Regulations guide for emergency LED lighting?

    Hello,

    Battery backup lighting for emergency signs is governed by standards which govern the intervals between battery self tests etc.

    Do you know where i can get the book of standards for this?

    IEC 62034 Automatic test systems for battery powered emergency escape lighting, available from your favourite standards bookstore (or ask Google).

    You can see list with standards names and short descriptions, but for detailed informations you should check your wallet is there some panic lights inside or not.

    I guess you speaking about objects as buildings and houses, offices emergency lights, not for cars, buses, and other dedicated special venhicles, such as airport venhicles, fire department venhicles, medical, military, road maintance, ....

    Also you didnt specify standards for which country. You should know that some countries prohibit imports of products with toxic materials, such as NiCd, Lithium, Lead ..... but special papers can be issued like for lithium based batteries or uC with lithium battery inside.... (Lead-Free/RoHS)


    If you plan to import NiCd in EU or whant to drive in full truck with NiCd batteries, or worst scenario to produce something with thise :

    NiCd batteries are banned from selling after September 26, 2008 in Europe. No transition period exists.

    Cadmium is carcinogenic, and lead is damaging for the central nervous system and for blood circulation.
