ETC lighting chosen for Malaysian city council building

City council building, Majilis Bandaraya Johor Bahru, has been installed with an array of ETC fixtures by AFS Engineering. Located in the heart of Johor Bahru, the new government building is 15 storeys high, with seven additional underground levels.

AFS Engineering has installed a variety of ETC fixtures including Source Four Zoom, ColorSource Linear and Source Four Fresnels into the Majilis Bandaraya Johor Bahru’s auditorium and banquet hall. The company also installed SmartPack ThruPower dimmer packs, and all lighting is controlled via an Element 2 console, which runs on the Eos platform. According to ETC Asia, the brand was chosen because of the reliability of its products, the 24/7 support available locally and the manufacturer’s warranty.

The Majilis Bandaraya Johor Bahru, which has received the Green Building Index Recognition as a mark of its ecological credentials, is used to host frequent government meetings and forums as well as major public events.  

ETC launches luminaires and power controls for LED systems

ETC has unveiled two new product ranges, designed to work together: ArcSystem Navis, a range of LED luminaires as well as an F-Drive system with customisable output cards, combining together to create an LED system for a variety of spaces. The Navis line of luminaires fixtures are available in a range of colour temperature options from 2700 K to 5000 K alongside an RGBW colour-mixing option.

A 3000 K fade to warm variant is available as a warm light at lower intensity levels, with aesthetic changes able to be made with a range of magnetic trim plates, clip-in optical accessories and twist and click beam angle lenses.

The Navis 100 features three wind-down clamps for ceiling thicknesses from 0.5mm to 20mm, with Navis 100 products able to be transformed into a surface cylinder or pendant system by sliding into hardware accessories.

An optional wall wash accessory is also available, allowing the Navis 100 to provide a blanket of light for a wall or corridor application. 

The F-Drive LED power control is designed for use with ArcSystem Navis luminaires and third-party fixture applications, using category type cable with RJ45 connections.

The F-Drive range can include both an R12 rack mount option and a W1 wall-mount option.

The R12 option includes 12 slots for swappable output cards with four channels of power output each, with mix-and-match driver cards available that are compatible with a variety of LED fixtures such as constant current and constant voltage loads.

The cards are hot-swappable, allowing changes to be made while maintaining power for the rest of the LED system. Power and data support is provided for up to 48 individually controllable Navis 100 luminaires.
