The latest industry player to support the vision of the Lighting Industry Academy is relative newcomer to the emergency lighting world, Lux Box Lighting Technology Ltd.

Whilst Luxbox may be a new brand, it has the power of Sander Elektronik, the Swiss emergency lighting specialists, behind it. At the helm is Simon Fox who has been a key figure in emergency lighting for over 20 years.

Simon explains the company’s support for the Academy:

Extended range of PIR presence detectors gives greater flexibility for DALI networks

CP Electronics, the UK’s leading manufacturer of lighting control products, has grown its range of DALI Network presence detectors, giving systems integrators greater flexibility to add passive infrared (PIR) detection to their proprietary DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) networks.

The growing popularity of PIRs to support energy saving in buildings makes it an increasingly important part of systems integration. By bringing PIR detection under DALI control, integrators can set up more complex networks that include occupancy and light level data.
