A pre-wired cable assembly of varying length with a plug & socket wired at each end allowing items of equipment to be connected as a final circuit. I.E looping between luminaires.
A pre-wired cable assembly of varying length with a socket at one end and free end on the other.
A pre-wired cable assembly of varying length with a plug at one end and free end on the other. Usually used to hard wire into a luminaire from a Lighting Control Module (LCM).
A range of pre-wired, pre-assembled connectors housed in a moulded unit to provide inclusion of manual switches and presence detection into the system.
Moulded Tee or Distribution Unit
A range of moulded connectors providing the means of branching off the lighting circuit with latching connectors, with one input and two outputs. Distribution units operate in the same way but with more than one output.
Remote Tee Module
Remote tee modules are designed for the connection of the luminaire into the lighting circuit while allowing the circuit to continue to the next luminaire.
Lighting Control Module
A unit housing pre-wired connectors offering varying degrees of interaction with the connected luminaires, from manual switching, presence detection, dimming and communication.
Metway Connection Centre (MCC)
Connection centres for use with switching or dimming sensors and switches for absence detection. The units are equipped with multiple latching outlets for safe distribution of power and the Dali signal.
Metway Dali Connection Centre (MDCC)
Connection centres for use with the Smart sensor(s) to provide fully addressable operation of attached Dali luminaires. Connection is via side latching connectors.
A ceiling or luminaire mounted electronic switching device that detects movement using either passive infra-red (PIR detector) or microwaves (microwave detector), turning the lights on when movement is detected and off when there is no movement.
Operation is by a light switch, so that when a person enters the room they should operate the light switch as normal, however, when leaving the room, they can either operate the switch or leave the sensor to turn the lights off after a set time when movement is not detected.
Digital Signal Interface (DSI)
A dimming / communicating protocol used to alter the light output of luminaires from a compatible sensor or control equipment.
Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI)
A popular dimming / communicating protocol used to alter the light output of a luminaire from a compatible sensor or control equipment.
PIR Detectors or Sensors
Passive infrared detection, using sensing body heat and movement to operate. Suitable for smaller offices or spaces, with the advantage of few false switching operations.
Microwave or HF Detectors or Sensors
Microwave or high frequency sensors operate by detecting changes in reflected radio waves. They are effective for large areas, such as warehouses or long corridors.
A sensor similar to the above but suitable for direct fitment to luminaires to control or dim the attached luminaire.
Short-range wireless technology standard used to exchange data between fixed and mobile devices over short distances, typically up to 10 metres. Useful for control of devices where a fixed or wired connection is not available.
The male connector utilises a metal pin as the conductor and is designed to plug into a female connector to receive power or signal. Insulating material is used to prevent touching of live parts, thus preventing electrical shock.
A female connector has split hollow tubes to allow power or signal to pass from the socket to a male plug. Insulating material is used to prevent touching of live parts, thus preventing electrical shock.
