RF Emergency & Exit Lighting

WORKS: Nexus RF Emergency & Exit Lighting System Installation

Client: Museums Victoria - Melbourne Museum


Scope of Works

JNJ Electrics were engaged to replace the existing E&E Lighting system with a wireless RF system capable of being electronically controlled & monitored.

The Stanilite Nexus RF system with Ethernet infrastructure, an Area Controller (ACR) incorporating a GUI screen & optional PC connectivity was selected.

JNJ designed a backbone using the Museum’s existing VLAN for communication with routers positioned next to existing Data Racks in the Museum, IMAX & Car parks.

The museum provided off-site access for testing & monitoring via a local PC through a Citrix account to permit Stanilite & JNJ remote access to the system.

Backbone / router installation & replacement of all car park & stairwell fittings were carried out after hours.

All recessed fittings are now plug-in and adaptor plates have been fitted to recessed exit fittings to ensure the museum’s high finish quality is maintained.

Non-standard fitting types have been superseded with standard solutions & various inaccessible fittings have been decommissioned.

The E&E lights within 4 galleries were found to be inaccessible and impractical to service. JNJ arranged to create complex lighting plots with new mounting locations while ensuring they met the required criteria for designated paths of egress.

Hazardous “Wet” stores were also reviewed by a “H” Class Engineer to bring both the emergency and general lighting up to Zone 2 Standards.

Complete documentation was provided with drawings being significantly upgraded & additional key drawings, stairwell drawings and redundant fitting & data rack layers included.


Project was delivered on time and within budget to the clients complete satisfaction

In total, 2063 fittings & 23 Routers have been installed to complete this installation.
