In 2022, UL dramatically changed the requirements for detecting normal and emergency power for emergency lighting. This change has obsoleted many common methods of compliance, and at the same time has opened up new opportunities for simplified and lower cost compliance. Today there is significant confusion about the new standards, and many manufacturers products have not yet caught up to the new standards. This presentation explains the changes, how to comply with the new standard, and outline new methods to comply that can reduce the cost of emergency lighting compliance significantly.
Some background in emergency lighting will be helpful for this presentation.
- Understand that UL 924 Emergency Lighting requirements have changed and a number of previous methods are now obsolete and no longer code compliant
- Learn the critical details of the new requirements and how to update specifications to comply with the new standards
- Learn new compliance methods enabled by the new UL 924 standard that can reduce the cost and simplify UL 924 compliance, as well as reduce the duration of accidental or short emergency conditions.
- Learn how reduce the cost and complexity of emergency lighting compliance with UPS backup power sources, and particularly how to leverage the new rules to significantly reduce the cost of UPS back up power systems for lighting.
