A large deviation property is established for noninteracting infinite particle systems. Previous large deviation results obtained by the authors involved a singleI-function because the cases treated always involved a unique invariant measure for the process. In the context of this paper there is an infinite family of invariant measures and a corresponding infinite family ofI-functions governing the large deviations.
