KNX UK delighted to be involved in WorldSkills 2011


Legrand targets contractors with Arteor training regime


A free training programme offered by Legrand has already helped more than 200 contractors, installers and system integrators get to grips with its wiring device and home automation range, Arteor. Two of the most recent companies to take advantage


KNX UK is delighted to be involved with the 2011 WorldSkills event at London’s ExCeL from 5 to 8 October 2011. The international KNX Association is a presenting sponsor for the Electrical Installations sector of the competition, which attracts young people from across the world, with 1,000 competitors from 50 nations competing in 45 skills. KNX UK President Iain Gordon says: ‘More than


ever, education and training is important in the electro- technical sector, where technology is developing ever faster. The popularity of conventional electrical installation methods not using bus technology is set to decline. Well-trained young people will be required for the future and, following training, KNX technology represents the best means of offering the next generation of electrical installers and contractors the know-how they need. ‘We wish all participants every success in the


WorldSkills 2011 competition.’ n www.knxuk.org


of the courses, which are all project focused, were Rugby- based Blue Ridge Electrical Systems and Orpington-based Hunter Security. Both companies took the advanced Arteor programming course and have since benefited from the project support offered by Legrand’s technical team. Gurninder Ghuman, Legrand’s training and technical


manager, said: ‘When we launched Arteor last year we were fully aware that by combining traditional wiring devices and home automation solutions in one range we were asking contractors to embrace an installation discipline that had previously been confined to specialist system installers. ‘As such, we immediately set about planning training


programmes aimed at helping in terms of installing the structural cabling and modular elements that form the backbone of all Arteor home automation systems.’

Products and services Friedland’s Evo evolves with style


Friedland has extended its successful Evo range of wire- free door chimes with the Evo+ collection, a stylish suite of designs that gives the householder CD-quality sounds, and offers the wholesaler and installer a hassle-free route to extra profit. Providing the homeowner with a high-performance,


aesthetic and versatile door sound-system, wire-free chimes offer a profitable opportunity to sell up in a domestic project and are quick to install, with no drilling required. All chimes have a range of 150 metres, and a pre-programmed feature that removes the need to programme the button to ‘talk’ to the chime when installing. The new range offers the choice of two, four or six


tunes and three finishes, and a solid brass push may be substituted as an upgrade to the standard chime and push kit. Every chime has a unique learning code to avoid interference with neighbour’s chimes, and the top models in the range are equipped with LED strobes and a four-step volume control.
