Corridor Hold Interface

In many buildings where energy-saving occupancy sensors are installed, corridor lights can go off when the adjacent rooms and areas are still occupied. It is sometimes necessary or desirable – for safety or security reasons – for the lights to be kept on even when the corridor is empty. The Corridor Hold Interface provides the solution to this problem. The unit is self powered and designed to allow up to 8 rooms or areas adjacent to a corridor to hold the lights on whilst any of the areas are occupied. If more inputs are required units can be doubled up to create a total of 16 inputs. Note that each input can accept a feed from either: A single lighting control device OR A group of appropriately pre-networked lighting control devices
Corridor Hold Unit

For information:
Sensor Heads output the corridor hold signal whenever occupancy is detected or not yet timed-out. This happens regardless of the state of the lights or the state of any controlling switch.

Key features

  • Use to keep luminaires in specific parts of a building on whilst other areas are occupied eg. a corridor/circulation area is lit whenever an adjacent room is in use.
  •  The interface does not require a mains supply, and is connected to a Control Module via a plug-in Network Lead.
  • Each Corridor Hold Interface accepts up to 8 x inputs with 2 x ouputs. It is however, possible to link 2 or more together, increasing the number of possible inputs in multiples of 8.
