As part of its growth plans for 2019, emergency lighting experts One-LUX will be adding to its current range of emergency luminaires over the coming months to offer a more comprehensive range.
The launches will begin with the introduction of an optical corridor lensed product, which, after being compared to several competitor products, has been shown to offer exceptional performance.
At a 2.5 metre ceiling height, the new product from One-LUX will offer light distribution and emergency luminaire spacing of 19 metres – which upon comparison to other industry products offers far superior performance.
Continuing with its product expansion, One-LUX will be launching its first range of surface mounted emergency luminaire solutions, which will be available in both circular and square versions from Spring 2019.
All of these new options will be available with DALI & Self-Test variations to make the solutions as universal as possible.
Glynnis Murray, Managing Director, One-LUX, said: “2019 is already looking to be a great year for One-LUX and these significant additions to our product range are an exciting part of our plans.
“The expansion of our portfolio will give us the capability to offer a wider range of emergency solutions, which will no doubt be a great benefit to many of our customers.”
As part of its customer-engagement strategy for 2018, emergency lighting leaders One-LUX will be attending the Electex show in Dublin.
Electex Dublin is being held at the Citywest Hotel, Conference & Event Centre in Saggart, on October 17th and 18th. It aims to bring together companies from across the wide-ranging electrical industry with a view to promoting new business relationships and encouraging innovation.
One-LUX will use the show to launch a range of exciting new products, with members of the team available to discuss these latest solutions. The stand will also feature a number of prototypes so customers can get hands on experience of the new One-LUX products.
Customers will also be able to enquire about One-CONNECT; a DALI-based, scalable, testing and reporting system which has been introduced as part of the company’s ongoing drive to deliver the best solutions for its customers.
Paul Wheeler, National Sales Manager, One-LUX, said: “We are looking forward to exhibiting at Electex as it is always a pleasure to meet up with customers and discuss new opportunities.
“We’ll be using the show to launch a number of new additions to our existing product portfolio. We’re really proud of our latest solutions and we’re confident our new products will be a big hit at the show.
“We’re excited to be showcasing these solutions to visitors and would encourage anyone with emergency lighting requirements to come and talk to our team members on our stand.”
One-LUX will be on stand 44 at the exhibition. For more information on the company and One-CONNECT visit www.one-lux.com or call the One-LUX team on +44 (0)1922 452423.
Recent tragic events have demonstrated the importance of testing and maintaining emergency lighting applying considerable pressure on facility managers, landlords and local authorities to ensure that their emergency lighting is compliant and safe. If not, then the likelihood of high fines and criminal prosecutions are high, and so it has never been more important to ensure that emergency lighting is maintained correctly, and testing is carried out to meet mandatory requirements.
As part of its ongoing drive to deliver the best solutions for its customers, emergency lighting experts One-LUX introduce One-CONNECT; a DALI-based, scalable, testing and reporting system.
Designed to allow a flexible, powerful and user-friendly way of managing emergency lighting, users can view, print and email emergency testing reports all from a touchscreen panel. This ensures easy identification of faults and the efficient maintenance of the emergency lighting system to comply with regulations.
Using an intuitive graphical user interface and commissioning tool, underpinned by a powerful database engine, the One-CONNECT system provides users with an intelligent, yet simple way to set-up the system and present real-time statuses of all components.
Easy to operate and navigate, One-CONNECT aids users to breakdown their emergency lighting system to view each device individually, or as a whole. An ‘Autoheal’ option for each DALI Bus supports the replacement of a single failed DALI emergency device without the need for reprogramming the network; the system recognises a missing DALI device and ‘heals’ the system automatically making the replacement process much simpler and cost effectively.
With the ability to use up to 8 touchscreens with a single One-CONNECT system, touchscreens can be networked together to offer a system that has scope to accommodate up to 10,240 DALI emergency devices.
Furthermore, One-CONNECT’s intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) is configured and operated using a standard Apple iPad, which is provided with a specially designed One-LUX app.
To ensure a flexible approach when installing and commissioning the system, One-CONNECT provides options to create a fully private network or integrate with an existing IT framework, enabling ultimate flexibility to configure a solution to meet any requirement.
For more information on One-CONNECT visit www.one-lux.com/products/one-connect or call the One-LUX team on 01922 452423.
