MK adds to its Echo self-powered range

MK Electric, Echo, wireless control, EnOcean

MK Electric has extended its Echo range of self-powered switches with a combination switch receiver and repeater. The K5420R is designed mainly for installing in ceiling voids for wiring into the lighting circuit. It reduces the stock required to wire an installation because when installed and powered but not programmed with transmitters it will work as a repeater, so there is no need to stock separate repeaters.

These EnOcean-compatible units can act as a repeater for an unlimited number of transmitters or be programmed with up to 30 individual transmitters and need 0.3 W of standby power.

They can work in active mode (open if there is a power failure) and passive (closed if there is a power failure) mode.

Echo self-powered wireless switches do not need batteries and radically revise the way lights are switched in commercial spaces.
