In terms of innovativeresearch and develop activities, Olympia-Electronics released in market the Central Battery Systems. The CBS are systems with central arrays of batteries thatpower the emergency lighting in big installations. They have low maintenance cost, easier programming and inspection of the emergency luminaries. The CBS systemsare a new world trend in the emergency lighting industry.
The GR-9500 are the new CBS panels with voltage operation 230VAC, both in mains and in emergency mode. There are two versions of GR-9500, one with 300VA and one with 600VA capacity.The version of 300VA is manufactured with 4 or 8 lighting circuits and needs 2 batteries of 33Ah, but the version of 600VA is manufactured only with 8 lighting circuits and needs batteries of 55Ah. Also, there is a building capability of up to 32 CBS panels via Ethernet. In conventional systems all the luminaries must be connected to an illumination zone operate with the same method. They are either maintained or non-maintained. They are manufactured according to EN 50171 and EN 50172. The CBS systems are appropriate for Hotels, Hospitals, Clinics, Malls and Factories etc.
