Memco launches new LED elevator lighting

Memco Limited has launched a new LED elevator lighting system, designed specifically for plug and play installation in both new installations and modernisation projects. The LED lamps produce a bright, clear light in the elevator cabin, increasing safety and visibility.

Conventional incandescent or fluorescent lighting uses 90% more power than LED lamps, and, by emitting less heat over their 50,000 hour life, the LEDs ensure a much reduced energy cost. They also have 25 times the lifespan of halogen lamps, meaning less service visits and money saved on engineer call-outs.

Housed in a robust controller box, the LED system has all cabling pre-wired and connectivity for up to 6 LEDs, allowing quick and easy installation on site. In the event of a power failure, it also provides emergency power for 1 lamp for 120 minutes due to its battery backup.

Two models are available, including a premium, eco-friendly option with a PIR feature which switches off the lamps when the doors are closed and no movement is detected for a set time, to save energy.  Both models feature an integrated dimmer feature that can be set to suit the application: lower intensity for spas and hotels, and higher for hospitals and clinics.
