MEM switches used in new centre

Posted on February 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

MEM electrical wiring accessories have been installed in the new £5.8 million Linda McCartney Centre at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. MEM Supergrid 8000 grid switches provide lighting control. A grid switch system allows any combination of switch types to be provided in a single plate. For example, in the Linda McCartney Centre there are conventional lighting switches, essential services switches with red rockers, and key-operated emergency lighting test switches. An MEM Litelink plug-in lighting system has been used throughout the centre. This provides plug-in connection of lighting fittings, facilitating installation and maintenance. Three-pin Litelink units are used for normal lighting fittings and four-pin units for emergency lighting. MEM says Litelink is the only system that offers both three-pin and four-pin systems to comply fully with the requirements of the British Standard BS 7001 for an interchangeable luminaire supporting coupler (LSC) system. – Tel: 0161 652 1111
