Specified by UR-EKA Lighting and Controls Ltd, flex7 were able to offer a bespoke lighting control solution that linked to the fire station's alarm system. Important lights in the building were networked together using flex7 network leads. A special flex7 Control Pack was connected to the alarm panel in the station, and receives a volt-free signal whenever the alarm goes off
Although there are some exceptions, generally speaking it is illegal to install any cable that was placed on the market on or after 1st July 2017 that is not CPR compliant. We believe that CPR class CCA is destined to become the benchmark for many commercial installations in the UK. It provides the benefits of reduced reaction to fire in tandem with the robust verification process of System 1+.
flex7 have helped to dramatically increase efficiency of radiotherapy units at Musgrove Park Hospital, Beacon Centre using their ZoneLite Lighting Control Modules. The Hospital is one of many across the UK who have a specialist unit to treat cancer patients.
Prota plug-in ceiling rose is available in 3,4,5,6 and 7-pole options. It can be used for on/off, dimming, or specialised lighting applications. The pluggable connection means that luminaires can be connected and disconnected under load.
In 1998 flex7 created the world’s first 7-pole lighting connection interface. Since then we’ve designed an entire connection & control system around these clever plug & socket modules. In this article we will be focusing on on the heart of our product range; our lighting distribution unit or, as we prefer, connection unit.
flex7 have developed a unique range of plug-in switches that operate at Protected Extra Low Voltage (PELV) and offer the installer dramatic time savings. Switches are connected using a lead with RJ11 connectors, one end plugging into the switch, the other into the flex7 control pack or ZoneLite unit.
flex7 lighting controls are available with the added benefit of integrated emergency test. This feature can save time during both installation, and when carrying out periodic testing. Our lighting controls can easily be networked together meaning that rather than testing each circuit or phase separately, you can simply use one master key switch to test emergency luminaires across multiple circuits or even phases.
Our newest offering is the flex7 Scene Setting Kit for conference rooms. It offers a plug & play lighting connection and control solution that allows the user to set and recall 4 individual scenes. All products in the kit simply plug together, saving significant time on site, and reducing the need for skilled labour
When designing the lighting scheme for a new or refurbed school, there are many things to consider including time constraints, regulations, energy-efficiency and special client requirements. The development of new technologies, and the vast array of products on offer mean it can be hard to decide on the best system for the job. Laid out below are just a few of the things worth thinking about before making your choice.
The wall-mounted panel allows you to set up 4 lighting scenes, and instantly recall them with the simple press of a button. If needed, scenes can be further adjusted while in use, by dimming up/down individual channels, to create a tailor made lighting scene.
