Emergency lighting plays a crucial role for safety inside CERN’s underground installations (including the LHC tunnel). The discontinuation of sodium lighting technology and the need for compliance with international standards makes LED’s the technology of choice for new emergency lighting systems. To ensure radiation-hardness of LED-based luminaires, a specially designed power convertor is required. The aim of this project is to make a reference design for a radiation-resistant power convertor for LED-based emergency lighting. The design would be made freely available through an Open Hardware License with the aim of standardizing this component across emergency lighting systems used by organisations worldwide and enabling affordable access to the component without being tied to a limited number of suppliers.
