Integrated Emergency Test – The benefits

flex7 lighting controls are available with the added benefit of integrated emergency test. This feature can save time during both installation, and when carrying out periodic testing. Our lighting controls can easily be networked together meaning that rather than testing each circuit or phase separately, you can simply use one master key switch to test emergency luminaires across multiple circuits or even phases.

All products in the kit simply plug together, saving significant time on site, and reducing the need for skilled labour
