n Aurora

Aurora’s SOLA fire-rated downlighter range can be insulation-covered, is ideal for wetrooms and bathrooms and is guaranteed for two years. The low-energy CFL SGU10


A versatile lighting management system from ALC Lighting Controls is helping the City of London KPMG Academy to reduce its energy consumption and carbon footprint, and has enabled school managers to fine-tune the initial design post occupation. The academy won the New

Build Project category in the CIBSE Low Carbon Performance Awards 2010, in recognition of its sustainable learning environment. The design maximises natural

daylight, ensuring switch-off when light levels are sufficient, combined with occupancy control that switches off once areas have been vacated.

GreenBrook is helping the UK to switch on to the benefits of 100 per cent electric, zero emissions motoring by supplying a key part of the user kit for the high profile Mini E public field trials with its Powerbreaker RCDs. The Mini E is the first car to

use latest generation lithium-ion technology and the result is a fully electric prototype. Forty drivers have been recruited for the current first wave of UK field trials in Oxfordshire, and BMW has worked with Scottish & Southern Energy and SEEDA (South East England Development Agency) to ensure re-charging infrastructure to support the trial.

n Ideal Hager

Hager claims that its new range of sollysta wiring accessories is the easiest in the market to install, with the shallowest back projection for more cabling space, and the UK’s first neutral loop terminal contained within its wall switch. Of particular note in the wall

switches is the market’s first neutral loop terminal contained within the accessory. This allows contractors to complete the loop connection in the switch, instead of in the ceiling rose, to save extra wiring to the light fittings.

The new SureTest® installation tester from IDEAL INDUSTRIES Networks Division is easy to use, very compact and ergonomically designed. Through clever use of new, lighter components and materials, as well as fewer (four) batteries, the device weighs just 765g, around 50 per cent less than most competing testers on the market – a real advantage if an electrician is testing for long periods. Peter Halloway, channel manager at IDEAL INDUSTRIES Networks

Division, said: ‘Most electricians, particularly sole traders and the self- employed, don’t have enormous purchasing budgets, so ideally they want to buy one installation tester that provides all the functionality in one device, including non-trip loop testing and phase sequencing to comply with the latest 17th edition wiring regulations. SureTest®

them all this in an easy-to-use, affordable package. The SureTest®

kit comes with a complete set of detachable test

leads, a switched remote test probe, crocodile clips, traceable calibration certificates, hard copy user guide, and a padded carrying case that stores the tester and all its accessories safely inside. It comes with a two-year warranty, upgraded to three years if the user registers online.

n JCC Lighting gives

Leading lighting manufacturer JCC Lighting, has launched Fireguard Plus, a new range of low-energy fire-rated downlights that use the latest technology to take downlights to the next level. Fireguard Plus features

Edison LED technology, providing extremely low energy performance at 5W (actual 4.7W). The revised England and Wales building regulations Part L state that three in four fittings need to be low energy and must exceed 45 lamp lumens per circuit Watt. Fireguard Plus, at 45 lumens per circuit Watt, easily passes this regulation. In addition, Fireguard Plus

features unique intumescent thermo plastic technology developed by engineers at JCC.

n 68 ECA Today Autumn 2010

40 Lm/W is a 4-in-1 cast aluminum downlighter, allowing compliance with Part B of the building regulations (Fire), Part C (Heat/moisture losses), Part L (Conservation of fuel and power) and Part E (Sound). Building regulations require

that where recessed features are installed, the fire resistance of the ceiling should not be compromised, helping to control the spread of fire. SOLA incorporates an

integrated heat sink, allowing downlights to be covered with thermal insulation without needing an insulation guard.

n CP Electronics

Vitesse Modular VITM4-2CH and the VITM4-2CH-2S are the latest additions to the CP Electronics’ range of marshalling boxes. The Vitesse modular system is an extremely cost- effective method of providing power and control for lighting in industrial, commercial and retail installations. The modular design of Vitesse

allows simple mains installation input and provides an easy solution for adding luminaires that can be connected via the spacious wiring compartment. The modular approach allows four and 16 luminaires to be connected; an appropriate CP detector (PIR, microwave – absence or presence detection) is then simply plugged into the end module using a pre-wired lead.
