Remote Testing Products

RCT Ballasts
To ensure that emergency lighting is functioning properly, the National Electrical Code® and Life Safety Code® require periodic testing, visual inspections and written records of test results for all emergency lighting. Philips Emergency Lighting’s RCT remote control testing emergency ballasts and RCT retrofit modules provide a simple testing alternative for emergency lighting. By pointing the WHRCT handheld remote control transmitter (sold separately) toward the RCT's infrared receiver and pushing a button, end-users can test emergency ballast operation from up to 32 feet away. Both 30-second and 90-minute tests may be conducted.

CheckMate
The CheckMate ET1 provides remote control testing for exit signs and wall packs. The CheckMate, which is easily installed on existing units, permits users to point-click-and-test without climbing on ladders or using extension devices. As with the RCT emergency ballasts and modules, 30-second and 90-minute tests can be conducted. One WHRCT handheld remote control transmitter (sold separately) is required and can be used to test any exit sign or emergency lighting unit properly equipped with the CheckMate.
