The emergency light fixtures’ power is supplied by an
emergency power distribution panel that is automatically switched to a
generator or inverter upon normal power failure. The standard room switch
turns on and off both regular lights and emergency lights through the same
switch leg by means of the Model EPC Emergency Power Controller that
controls all emergency light fixtures. During room or general power failure

The EPC-D is a single zone silent operating control device. It is both
versatile and cost effective and is designed for dimmable lights in public
places where light levels must be maintained at 1foot candle during the loss

the load to an available emergency source within 1.5 seconds. When normal
power is restored, the EPC-D will transfer the load back within 1.5 seconds.
Any interruption of normal power will automatically transfer designated
lights to full bright regardless whether system is turned on or off.
