Australia’s First Extra
Low Voltage, Addressable Intelligent, LED Emergency Lighting System

Hochiki Australia, world leaders in fire detection manufacturing introduces a brand new concept to the Australian market - an innovative new Emergency Lighting system, FIREscape® .

FIREscape® is a unique, highly cost effective and environmentally friendly emergency lighting system based on LED technology and is Australia’s first to be fully intelligent.

FIREscape® is based around an addressable, emergency lighting control panel with battery back-up and features addressable, self contained luminaires and signage connected via screened, extra-low voltage (40V) cabling.

With lighting units fitting directly onto the test switch base (EL-TSB), FIREscape® offers the installer a brand new and easy solution to the installation of emergency lighting and signage.

Use our simple exit sign energy costs calculator to compare traditional, mains-powered lighting with FIREscape® and see how you could save by switching.

Helps to Lower Carbon Emissions

The lower energy consumption directly correlates with lower CO2e emissions. For example, replacing 100 230V fluorescent exit luminaires with FIREscape® LED-based exit lights, CO2e emissions would be reduced by 2,620 KG annually.

Automatic Testing

The EL-2 control panel continuously monitors the status of the luminaire LEDs and stand-by batteries. Information on completed tests is stored in the memory of the panel and test reports can be printed for end-user records. Malfunction/alarm information is displayed on the screen of the EL-KP keypad.

Extra Low Voltage - saves on
cabling costs

The FIREscape® system utilises Extra Low Voltage (40V) between devices, and so installation doesn’t have to be carried out by qualified electricians. Cabling can be provided in 1.5mm screened data cable. Both of these features save on installation time and costs.

And because FIREscape® utilises the world renowned error-free ESP communications protocol, fire and lighting cabling can safely be run in the same containment saving even more money.

The FIREscape System:

EL-2 Addressable Control Panel

The EL-2 emergency light control panel features two lines, each line can accommodate 127 exit signs, route lights or I/O units.

The EL-2 supplies the operational voltage to the light units during normal conditions, whilst also completing the continuous testing and monitoring of the equipment on the system. All monitored event information is saved in the memory of the control panel, and this can be accessed by a connected EL-KP key pad.

EL-KP Lighting System Keypad

EL-KP is an emergency lighting control panel keypad for use with the EL-2 panel. The control panel is operated and interrogated through the compact backlit LCD graphical display of the keypad, which can show system status of the lighting units including battery charge and LED faults.

One EL-2 control panel can support a total of 8 EL-KP keypad units, with up to a max of 15 panels on one system and up to a max of 48 panels per graphics package.

EL-DL2-AS Corridor Down Light

EL-DL2-AS is an LED-based, addressable corridor down light featuring one high-powered LED with a specially engineered dual surface free-form optic. The unit’s body contains the electronics and the stand-by battery and features a bicoloured status LED indicating charge/fault status (green for charging, red for fault).

The unit has been designed to easily fit onto Hochiki’s test switch base (EL-TSB).

EL-DL3-AS Open Space Down Light

EL-DL3-AS is an LED-based, addressable open space down light featuring one high-powered LED with a specially engineered dual surface free-form optic. The unit’s body contains the electronics and the stand-by battery and features a bicoloured status LED indicating charge/fault status (green for charging, red for fault).

The unit has been designed to easily fit onto Hochiki’s standard test switch base (EL-TSB).

NF89-C-AS High Power Corridor Down Light

The NF89-C-AS Corridor luminaire is an addressable processor controlled device using modern LED technology and is equipped with a battery. It uses one conductor pair for both power and communication. The conductors are connected to a separate round mounting base onto which the luminaire is mounted. The luminaire uses a bigger battery than standard and needs a battery spacer NFW/BS.

The battery is mounted into the spacer and the spacer is connected to the luminaire with a bayonet fix. The package is then mounted onto the base.

NF89-0-AS High Power Open Space Down Light

The NF89-0-AS Open Area luminaire is an addressable processor controlled device using modern LED technology and is equipped with a battery. It uses one conductor pair for both power and communication. The conductors are connected to a separate round mounting base onto which the luminaire is mounted. The luminaire uses a bigger battery than standard and needs a battery spacer NFW/BS.

The battery is mounted into the spacer and the spacer is connected to the luminaire with a bayonet fix. The package is then mounted onto the base.

16M Addressable Exit Sign

An LED-based, addressable 16m viewable exit light with a flexible ‘flex it’ hinge solution. The exit light’s hinge cup contains the electronics and stand-by battery and allows the unit to attach to the Hochiki EL-TSB mounting base. The cup also features a bicoloured status LED indicating charge/fault status (green for charging, red for fault), approved to AS2293.

24M Addressable Exit Sign

An LED-based, addressable 24m viewable exit light with a flexible ‘flex it’ hinge solution. The exit light’s hinge cup contains the electronics and stand-by battery and allows the unit to attach to the Hochiki EL-TSB mounting base. The cup also features a bicoloured status LED indicating charge/fault status (green for charging, red for fault), approved to AS2293.

NFW68/89-RA Recess Adaptor

The NFW68/89-RA is a mounting adaptor for the Emergency Lighting product range and their associated mounting bases. It allows a base and light combination to be flush mounted by providing a recess fixing in the ceiling. (shown with luminaire fitted – not supplied)

Allows all current FIREscape luminaires to be flush mounted: EL-DL2-AS, EL-DL3-AS, NF89-O-AS, NF89-C-AS.

EL-REC20/40 Recess Adaptor

These recess adaptor brackets allow a semi-flush fitting of the EL-16 and EL-24 exit signs. The brackets need to be fitted with an exit sign and a mounting base (not supplied) and are equipped with spring loaded clips for secure fixing to most suspended ceiling materials. The brackets feature a small inspection hole in the ceiling plate which allows sight of the bicoloured status LED on the exit sign cup within the ceiling void.

Available in two sizes, EL-REC20 to fit the EL-16 16m viewable sign range and the EL-REC40 to fit the EL-24 24m viewable sign range.

Special Applications

There are a range of accessories for the FIREscape® system including input/output modules, step lights, weatherproof housings for external applications and recess fit adaptors for both the exit signs and the luminaires.

There are also high-power luminaires which can provide the required lux levels at a 9m ceiling height.
