Lux Intelligent, the testing system for emergency lighting, has been specified to replace an obsolete system at Plas y Brenin, the National Mountain Sports Centre in the heart of Snowdonia.

The National Mountain Sports Centre is the home of mountain sports, providing both residential and non-residential courses catering for all ages in a range of mountain and water sports.

An addressable automatic test system, Lux Intelligent was chosen for the 216-year-old facility because of its ease of installation and the performance benefits it delivers. The system has allowed the existing wiring, exit signs and 300 luminaires to be kept, in turn saving considerable time and cost.

Installer Brian Jones, electrical engineer at Delta Fire and Security, said: “The Centre’s existing emergency lighting product had become obsolete, making repairs and finding replacement parts difficult. Lux Intelligent was easy to install using the National Mountain Sports Centre’s LAN network.”

Lux Intelligent ensures that all emergency lighting is functioning and compliant with BS 5266-1. It’s a flexible system with panels supporting 1-4 loops, 249 devices per loop and up to 200 panels in a network.

Lux Intelligent is compatible with most third party lights and luminaires, including LEDs, thus affording end users purchasing freedom.
