Simple to sophisticated electrical controls

Legrand Arteor touch screen controlThe South African office of the global Legrand Group recently launched the Arteor range, which encompasses simple switches to the most advanced automation systems, as well as other electrical fittings, for the residential, commercial and hospitality sectors.

Legrand designs and manufactures products and systems for electrical installations and control networks. In the new Arteor range it caters for a multitude of stand-alone and system functions in a range that is designed to meet international standards.

Timothy Mountjoy, national sales manager at Legrand SA, says, “Arteor combines stylish design and leading-edge technology to provide numerous wiring devices and electrical functions, from the most basic to the more complex. Designers of the Arteor range worked with the ‘flow of energies’ slogan to produce elegant fittings with a fine balance between function and form.”

Arteor introduces light switches with round or square rocker plates. It also offers touch dimmer switches. Moving into the more complex automation control systems, it presents a range of options. The scenario switch provides for customisable settings for different rooms, controlling lighting, temperature, blinds or shutters and sound systems. Integrated, multifunction control interfaces for the whole house, or for office or hotel room settings, are available in a range of smaller to bigger touch screens – depending on the number of functions to be accommodated.

“Catering to the top end of the market, innovative and sophisticated materials have been selected for the Arteor range, giving it a multicultural identity in line with its international positioning. These materials include woven metal, brushed metal, mirror, wood and leather finishes, in various colours including neutrals,” says Mountjoy.

“What’s also important about this new range is its compatibility with international socket and flush-mounting box standards for commercial and residential installations,” he adds. It is a truly international range designed for adaptability to meet the requirements and preferences of specifiers and users.
