Quik-Chekô Remote Testing      

QUIK-CHEKô LABOR-SAVING* REMOTE CONTROL TESTING

  Quik-Chekô is an exclusive (U.S. Patent #5148158-Canadian #1320246) option for testing emergency lighting.  Quik-Chekô is the only product of its king that allows for full code compliance in the periodic service and testing of emergency equipment.
 
Quik-Chekô is an exclusive (U.S. Patent #5148158-Canadian #1320246) option for testing emergency lighting.  Quik-Chekô is the only product of its king that allows for full code compliance in the periodic service and testing of emergency equipment. Quik-Chekô is a transmitter and receiver combination that allows a user to perform and witness periodic, code-required tests on emergency lighting units from the safety and convenience of the floor (or anywhere within 50 feet of the unit).  A single press of the transmitter button simulates a power failure to the unit and permits the observation of the lamps, illumination, and charging activity.  The receiver is factory installed in the unit, and the transmitter is portable.  We can't stress enough the labor savings and safety benefit of testing emergency lights in this manner.
 
  Quik-Chekô also always includes another important feature - User Adjustable Time Delay.  Time delay is essential for installations in which the normal lighting is provided by HID lamps.  Time delay keeps the emergency lights on for a preset period after power is restored.  HID lighting can take 15-20 minutes to reach full brightness after even a brief power failure.
 

 

THE STATE-OF-THE-ART QUIK-CHEKô DESIGN INCLUDES:
Integrated Design - Both the receiver and time delay functions are performed on a single circuit board, translating to enhanced reliability and easy servicing.
 
  Digital Coding - The "initiate test" signal transmitted is digitally coded.  The end user may, if desire, set unique 8 position codes on both the transmitter and receiver for security in much the same way garage door opener codes are selected today.  As supplied from the factory, all transmitters will work with all receivers unless different codes are selected.
 
Quik-Chekô is an exclusive (U.S. Patent #5148158-Canadian #1320246) option for testing emergency lighting.  Quik-Chekô is the only product of its king that allows for full code compliance in the periodic service and testing of emergency equipment. Long/Short Test & 1 to 90 Adjustability - The receiver may be easily set for a "lights on" (i.e. time delay) interval anywhere from 1 to 90 by rotating an adjustment knob in the unit.  Furthermore, inside the transmitter battery compartment is a two-position selector switch.  The user can choose to conduct a brief (short) test or an extended (long) test by moving the selector to the appropriate position and pressing the transmit button.  The receiver/time delay will the keep the emergency lights "on" for the interval selected on the unit.  The unit will remain on for 1 to 90 minutes in the long test and 1 to 90 seconds for the short test, depending on the interval selected.  There are two additional important features with regard to the delay.  First, if a long test is initiated and it becomes necessary to cancel it, this is accomplished easily by setting the transmitter to the "short" test function and pressing the transmit button.  Second, when real power failure occurs, the unit will always keep the lights on for minutes, not second upon restoration of normal AC power.
 
  Transmitter Case - The modern, convenient styling of the transmitter is similar to a pager, complete with handy belt clip.  The battery used is a common low-cost 12V alkaline cigarette lighter battery available from many sources, including Big Beam.  It is accessible via a slide-off battery door on the back of the transmitter.
 

LEDs - The transmitter case includes an LED which gives a quick confirmation of operation.  Similarly, the receiver circuit board has an LED which illuminated when receiving a signal.  Both are very useful in troubleshooting and servicing.

Quik-Chekô

On Average, Quik-Chekô reduces inspection time by over 3 hours per unit annually.  However, no unit - whether it be diagnostic, selt-test, or remove test - is work the cost unless emergency equipment is checked on a regular basis (as required by code).  Only Quik-Chekô allows for full code-complied test, and will pay back the total cost of the unit it tests.
