Ex-Or brings lighting under energy-efficient control

Published:  25 October, 2008

ex-or

Ex-Or offers a complete range of energy- and cost-saving controls and managed lighting systems for new-build and refurbishment projects. They ensure compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations.

LightSpot controls, for example, automatically detect the presence of occupants and monitor levels of daylight to automatically switch lights on and set the required level of artificial light. All three major types of presence detection are used, (PIR, ultrasonic and microwave) according to the application or pattern of usage.

Flexible control of lighting throughout a building can be provided by the MLS digital managed lighting system. A network of communicating detectors use presence detection and daylight regulation to reduce energy consumption. The detectors share information on occupancy and light levels to tailor lighting according the the needs of occupants — in conveniently configured work zones. Lighting in key circulation areas can be held on when any other programmed zone is occupied.

These operations zones can be set up quickly and easily using a hand-held programmer; there is no centralised computer. Settings and lighting configurations can be changed just as simply whenever required.
