Ex-Or scoops top honour at Lighting Design Awards
Lighting control specialists Ex-Or have carried off a major award in the annual Lighting Design Awards for its innovative range of batten-mounted sensors. The Ex-Or BattenFit range won the Lighting Controls category at the prestigious event.
Introduced to the market just over a year ago, BattenFit has proved an instant success in the market. Ex-Or, part of Honeywell, reports sales far in excess of expectations both in the UK and overseas.
“We are delighted to have won this important accolade in the Lighting Design Awards,” said Catherine Connolly, Honeywell ED&S business director UK and Ireland. “These awards are internationally recognised, and the market understands that only products that have demonstrated technical and operational excellence stand a chance of winning.
“It’s an outstanding achievement for our BattenFit development team that spotted the opportunity for this product and brought it to the market. The market has quickly become aware that BattenFit is a cost-effective solution that can swiftly pay for itself and continue to deliver significant energy cost savings.”
Martyn Northwood, business manager of Tamlite Lighting, said: “We were involved with Ex-Or in the development of BattenFit from the start. The finished result certainly exceeded our expectations – It’s a fantastic product which is easy to install and operate. And its energy saving applications are endless!”
The Ex-Or BattenFit offers advanced occupancy detection technology in a package which is quick and easy to fit to a batten-style luminaire. This purpose-designed detector family offers a range of functionality to suit all applications in an aesthetically pleasing design, and can deliver energy savings of up to 80 percent.
BattenFit is described as the ideal solution for those ‘forgotten’ energy stealers such as storage rooms, utility areas, plant rooms and warehousing space – anywhere where lights can be left on unnecessarily for long periods. An IP (Ingress Protected) version of BattenFit has been developed that provides protection against dust and water. This enables BattenFit to be also used in outdoor locations as well as wet and wash-down environments.
