To add to the above. You do not see many emergency lights with a RED led, but I did see one.

 

i have one with the red indicator light on, I've switched the lights out and they indicator light is still red. does it take time to charge up or is their an issue with the ballast

Neither. If the red (in your case) LED is still lit when you turn the lights off  then it means that your EL is still be powered and still being charged.

EL should only come on when there is a power failure to the light or the relevant test switch has been operated.

Switching off lights near an EL should not remove the supply to the EL, so the EL will not come on.

You need to find where the EL are fed from and turn that off to test them.

You may want to get some one in to do it for you / show you next time.

Hi

we have emergency lights in our office. all show red LED . ( no greens on this older fitting) have just tested the system and 2 units do not light. I assume it is better to change the whole unit rather than trying tubes and batteries ?  any advice most welcome.:-)

Doubtful it is the tube (I assume it has hardly ever been lit) So that means the batteries have probably failed, they only have a working life of 3 -  5 years at most. Safelincs can supply you with batteries from just under £12 Click here

Or you can as you suggest change the whole fitting. Safelincs can supply EM lights  starting from just over £15 Click here
