Here are some optimized recommendations for connecting a remote test button to PPA109S over long distances: For spans up to 500 feet between the test button and PPA109S, we suggest the following:*Use 14 AWG or 12 AWG wire for the button connection. The larger wire gauge minimizes voltage drop over long cable runs.*Install a dry… Read more What gauge would be needed to ensure that a 500 ft run between the test button and the PPA109s module?
Our testing has shown the PPA109 can reliably control lights at distances of up to 15 meters (49 feet). 15 meters is not the absolute upper limit, but we recommend maintaining a distance of 15 meters or less between a PPA109 and the lights it controls for optimal reliability. Factors that can affect maximum distance… Read more What is the maximum length of TEST WIRE for the PPA109S?
Here are some optimized guidelines for properly spacing PPA109s for emergency lighting projects: PPA109 Density Recommendations*Maintain a maximum 100:1 ratio of light controllers to PPA109s – Install at least 1 PPA109 for every 100 lights.*For commercial spaces, install 1 PPA109 per 200 square feet of coverage area. Examples:*1-100 lights = Minimum 1 PPA109*101-200 lights =… Read more How many PPA109s per group of emergency fixtures?
