Ex-Or extends energy saving BattenFit sensors with IP65 versions


Following on from the success of the popular BattenFit sensors, Ex-Or’s range of simple to fit batten-mounted sensors has been extended to include Ingress Protection (IP) versions.

The BattenFit, from lighting control specialists Ex-Or, 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. It can deliver energy savings of up to 80 per cent1.

Now they are available as IP65 rated versions. Ingress Protection is an international rating that describes the degree of protection provided by an enclosure of electrical equipment. The IP65 rating ensures that it is protected against the ingress of dust and jets of water from any direction. This makes the product ideal for use in outdoor locations as well as wet and wash-down environments.

Key applications that can benefit from BattenFit’s energy savings include bathrooms, shower rooms, food preparation areas, outdoor areas including carparks, and any space where there is the possibility of lights being inadvertently left on for extended periods when not required.

The Ex-Or BattenFit range of sensors employs advanced PIR detection technology to monitor occupancy of the area served by the lighting batten and delivers light only when it is needed. The simplest BattenFit device automatically switches the light on when someone enters an area, and switches the light off again when the area is vacated.

More sophisticated BattenFit variants provide the same reliable presence detection and additionally monitor levels of natural light to further eliminate unnecessary use of energy. At the top of the range, for example, DSI and DALI-compatible BattenFit detectors are capable of maintaining constant light levels by adjusting a luminaire’s output in concert with available natural light. All versions are available IP65-rated.

Nathan Cole, Ex-Or global product manager, said: “BattenFit is the ideal solution for those ‘forgotten’ energy stealers – not only storage rooms, utility areas, plant rooms and warehousing space – but now bathrooms, shower rooms and outdoor areas including carparks.  In fact, anywhere lights can be left on unnecessarily for long periods, BattenFit is a cost-effective solution that is quick and easy to fit.  BattenFit can swiftly pay for itself and continue to deliver energy cost savings of up to 80 per cent.”
