The Elkay Electrical range from ABB continues a long tradition of electrical excellence from the Elkay Electrical Manufacturing Company, originally founded in 1923. This company was dissolved nearly 90 years later and Elkay Electrical became part of North America's Thomas & Betts, an electrical company established in 1898 by two engineers from Princeton University. Thomas & Betts was then incorporated in 2012 into ABB, the Swiss-Swedish global corporation now headquartered in Zurich. ABB has four major operating divisions, covering power management, heavy electrical equipment, robotics and automation technology. ABB has been included in the global Fortune 500 for the past 24 years in 2018 was ranked 341st, with an annual turnover of almost $30bn.
The Energy Sense range of low voltage electrical lighting products includes a wide selection of timer controls which can help substantially to reduce both energy costs and harmful carbon emissions. This range combines practical lighting solutions with attractive styling and multiple features, such as touch button and occupancy switches and PIR timers.
The patented Columbus® time delay switch is offered in either pneumatic or electrically actuated versions, and can be installed to replace existing gang switches for lighting corridors, stairwells and storerooms. Activation can be set in ranges extending from 5 seconds to 25 minutes and will provide a cost-effective solution for fluorescent, LED and incandescent lighting systems.
Push Button timers are available in Standard and Illuminated Switch versions, with an optional Long Delay timer. These timers can be set for periods ranging from 2 minutes to 8 hours, and can be extended with a Slave Switch, used to replace an existing higher energy switch or interlinked with other Elkay timers to provide multiple switching points. Elkay electronic Touch Timers and Slave Switches offer the same energy saving features as the Push Button switches, but with the additional reliability of feather-light touch activation and no mechanical moving parts.
The Elkay PIR Occupancy Timer (Passive InfraRed) is a fully automatic sensory device which controls various lighting and power loads. This low voltage energy-saving device is activated by the heat of a moving body coming within a range of 5-7 metres. When the heat is detected by infrared, a pre-set timer controls how long the lighting or power stays on, for periods of 2-60 minutes. These units also contain an energy-saving internal light sensor, which keeps the lighting system from activating if sufficient light is already available. PIR sensors are also available in a fire-proof or ceiling-mounted option.
Additional Elkay Sensors available from Rowse include Remote Timers and a high-performance Microwave Timer, which functions by sensing sound and light emissions. This unit is suitable for reducing energy usage in many applications, including heating, ventilation systems, lighting and contactor coils.
