Simmtronic and Mackwell have announced an exciting collaboration on the integration of emergency lighting and control technology platforms.
Advances in LED performance have driven remarkably compact solutions for emergency lighting. The partnership is crafted from expertise in their respective fields to create an unrivalled design that offers unprecedented value to end-users and installers of the solution.
The relationship is marked by the launch of the ‘Universal Sensor with Integrated Emergency Light’, a configuration that combines Simmtronic’s market leading sensor technology with Mackwell’s XY-Fi emergency module - the world’s smallest emergency luminaire, and a recent winner of the Lighting Product of the Year at the Electrical Industry Awards.
By combining an emergency lighting unit with a PIR sensor in one housing, significant monetary, time and labour savings on site can be gained, courtesy of installation costs, project programming and cleaner space aesthetics due to reduced clutter.
The solution comprises of a range of single point mounting solutions for three different varieties: Recessed, Surface and Drop Rod. These designs match aesthetically and combine physically with existing Simmtronic control sensor designs and mounts.
Both UK manufacturers, Mackwell and Simmtronic support is available for site visits, demonstrations, and training. Simmtronic also offers an assembly service.
“We have been trying to combine these two technologies into one combined product for many years, as the spacing for presence detectors is similar to stand-alone emergency light fittings. Prior to Mackwell releasing their new small LED Emergency light fitting it has not been possible, but now I am excited to confirm that by working together we have taken it to another level and set a new standard - creating the only combined emergency lighting sensor on the market,” says Mario Costanzo, Simmtronic director. “It’s a powerful tool with a simple solution and we can’t wait to bring it to the UK’s construction and engineering community.”
“We are very proud of this innovation, which came about when we realised that the XY-Fi optics perfectly match the Simmtronic sensor optics and therefore have identical spacings in a building,” commented Rene Joppi, commercial director, Mackwell. “The best of two worlds combined in only one installation point.”
The partnership will also ensure that full compatibility is achieved between the company’s products, with Simmtronic’s DALI automatic emergency test solution working in tandem with Mackwell’s range of emergency luminaires, exit signs and OEM conversion solutions.
