Is it possible to choose which level ArcSystem Pro emergency fixtures go to when the sense feed is lost? On MultiCell fixtures, is it possible to choose which cells come on when the sense feed is lost?


No, these things are not possible. On losing the sense feed, emergency fixtures will always send all cells to 100% and there is no way to change this. The tick box in the configuration software labelled "Emergency Override" does not affect this behaviour.
