LOW LOCATION LIGHTING ON PASSENGER SHIPS - THE WAY OUT

The International Maritime Organization Resolution A 752 (18) "Guidelines for the Evaluation Testing and Application of Low Location Lighting on Passenger Ships" permits the use of either passive systems, normally using photoluminescent materials, or active systems which are electrically powered. This article reviews electrical systems which can make use of incandescent lamps, electroluminescent foil lamps or LEDs as the light source. In new vessels, the system must be fed from the emergency power supply, whereas existing vessels can use the main supply if the use of an emergency power source is not practical.
