University of Edinburgh, Wellbeing Centre

United Kingdom

The new Wellbeing Centre houses the University’s student counselling and disability services, medical practice and pharmacy. Philip Payne emergency luminaires combined with the revolutionary Specto-XT lighting management system have been installed at the Centre. Specto-XT emergency luminaires test according to the schedule specified in BS EN 62034:2012 and display current status via a bi-colour LED.

What makes Specto-XT an attractive option from the University’s point of view is its ease of installation. Specto-XT uses the latest wireless mesh technology to replace wired communications signals between each luminaire. 868MHz secure radio communication offers excellent transmission distance within buildings with each luminaire acting as a wireless node to repeat commands on to the next luminaire. This provides a robust system that will always find a communication path.

Another key benefit of Specto-XT is the accessibility of information. Luminaires are wirelessly linked into a Gateway which collects and transmits their status information to the World Wide Web for viewing using tablets, smart-phones, laptops and computers. The university has recognised the significant savings that can be achieved by removing the task of manually testing hundreds of emergency luminaires every month.
