CP takes charge of the light at Old Trafford

Controllable light for the indoor spaces at Old Trafford cricket ground is provided with the help of marshalling boxes from CP Electronics.

CP Electronics has supplied its Vitesse Modular marshalling boxes and a range of detectors for the lighting component of the refurbishment of the Lancashire County Cricket Club at the Emirates Old Trafford stadium in Manchester.

Specified by electrical contractor Genlec, Vitesse Modular was used in the pavilion, training centre and the state-of-the-art media building. Combined with CP’s detectors in most areas, the scheme offers a highly efficient lighting-control system.

The refurbishment includes The Point, a purpose-built hospitality suite, the new pavilion, which can accommodate up to 700 delegates in eight suites and nine executive boxes, the new media centre, and educational/training facilities for the club and local community.

Vitesse Modular was the preferred choice as it provides a quick and easy way to add luminaires by plugging in 4-way extender modules.

Absence/presence detection was required in some areas, and a detector was chosen that could be plugged into the end module of the Modular system using a pre-wired lead. The detection pattern of the infra-red detectors used can be changed to suit the application; sensitivity can also be adjusted.
