voltage electrical system. low voltage electrical system. The standard is composed by 8 main different parts.

EN 1838 “Lighting applications - Emergency lighting”

EN 15232 “Energy Performance of Buildings - Energy performance of buildings - Part 1: Impact of Building Automation, Controls and Building Management”

The standard defines the lighting requirements for emergency lighting systems, installed in buildings or premises where such systems are required. It applies, primarily, to places intended for the public or workers.

The EN 15232 standard specifies: • a structured list of building control, automation and technical management functions that contribute to a building’s energy performance; the functions have been classified and structured according to building regulations and so called Building Automation and Control (BAC); • a method for defining minimum requirements or any other specifications for building control, automation and technical management functions that contribute to the energy efficiency of a building, which can be implemented in buildings of varying complexity; • a simplified method for arriving at an initial estimate of the impact of these functions on representative buildings and use profiles; • detailed methods for assessing the impact of these functions on a given building.
