Regarding the NFPA 101(2015)

To expert whom it may concern,


According to the NFPA101(2015) section, "The lighting control device does not turn off any battery-equipped emergency luminaires, unit equipment, or exit signs.

Technically correct interpretation of the provisions is required for personnel with expertise.

1) Do not turn off the battery installed in the lighting fixture?
2) Or is it not to turn off the lighting fixture itself with built-in battery?

I ask the opinion of a technical expert.


Thank you.
