Elektrak system is just the ticket for new passport office

Electrak
Power distribution and control of lighting circuits in this new office in Liverpool of the UK Passport Service s provided by Electrak’s Lightrak KNX system.
Power-distribution specialist Electrak has played a key role in making the new Liverpool office of the UK Passport Service an energy-efficient operation with its Lightrak KNX light power distribution and controls system. Building-services consultant Faber Maunsell specified Lightrak KNX for the new premises in Old Hall Street in the commercial heart of Liverpool to ensure a reliable lighting system that will deliver a practical and flexible approach to ensuring that lights are not left on unnecessarily. Presence detectors control the lighting locally, and there is a dimming system linked to daylight sensors for energy conservation. Timed event controllers will provide central controls where required. Installed by NG Bailey, the lighting system comprises more than 200 KNX lighting-control devices on six lines of Electrak’s integrated power and communications ‘buscom’ trunking. This busbar hybrid provides both small-power distribution and signal bus distribution via a separate integral twisted paid. It is compatible with other protocols, including DALI and LonWorks. Installation time is dramatically reduced, as the modular buscom track simply pushes together and snaplocks. All Lightrak KNX control units are supplied pre-programmes, requiring only to be plugged into the trunking as scheduled.
