MK Electric has launched the Astral wireless lighting control system, which is suitable for new-build and refurbishment projects

Employing a MESH-based system, it can be used to control lighting applications within residential, commercial or hospitality environments.

The initial range of devices includes controllers, dimmers and switches. The MESH networking is a way to route data between devices using radio signals, making it suitable for any installation where flexibility and versatility are important. No “line-of-sight” is required between the devices and the more devices in the overall installation, the more robust the communication path becomes. Most installations will have a remote control with the capability to control four preset scenes and groups. Each scene or group can theoretically control up to 64 switches and/or dimmers. Other wall-mounted controllers are available that can be mains or battery-powered.
