MK adds to its Echo self-powered range

MK Electric, Echo, lighting control

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 also work as a repeater.

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 in a power failure) and passive (closed if there is a power failure) mode. These devices do not need batteries and radically revise the way lights are switched in commercial spaces.
