Wago has invested over £200 000 building an engineering centre at its UK headquarters that is dedicated to designing pre-assembling, testing and distributing bespoke modular trunking systems for commercial and industrial new builds and upgrades . The centre is a world first for the company.

Steve Emberton, recently appointed as the company’s first building automation manager, explains, ‘Wago is offering a one-stop shop, with modular trunking bringing together all control, power and lighting into one integrated system.

‘Our ability to combine a modular trunking system with I/O is a first within the UK market, allowing many building services to be monitored and controlled using a single platform.’

The Wago I/O system supports all major protocols such as BACnet, KNX, DALI and EnOcean, Modbus/TCP/IP. It can be used to control and monitor almost any building automation task — from heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) to lighting or window blinds.’

Steve Emberton explains, ‘The concept was created following a demand from the hospital sector, where there was a need to ensure separate power supplies for critical areas like theatres and for more general areas.’

Whereas customers would previously have had to design, commission and install trunking, HVAC, lighting and blind control systems often from separate companies, Wago can now provide a fully integrated solution.
