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 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.
We have released a new scene setting panel to complement the flex7 ZoneLite, part of our extensive lighting controls range. The wall-mounted panel allows you to set up 4 lighting scenes.
We have added a 5 & 6-pole version of their popular plug and single socket outlets to ourextensive range of lighting connection and control products
If you’re involved in the ‘bricks & mortar’ side of the building industry, be it design, specification, procurement, construction, facilities management etc. it’s fair to say that you’ll find yourself at the sharp end of BIM. Some practices have already picked up the baton and are actively introducing it as their preferred option.
Flex Connectors are pleased to announce that they are BIM ready! They have worked closely with NBS, one of the UK’s most trusted authorities in the field, to ensure products from the popular flex7 Lighting Connection & Control System are available as Level 2 BIM objects.
