The media and communication column from OBO Bettermann provides more flexibility in the electrotechnical installation in classrooms.

The requirements for the equipment of training and classrooms are constantly increasing. It goes without saying that renovations or new buildings will also be adapted to changing needs. The combination of individual equipment and centrally controlled systems can be optimally implemented with the media and communication pillars from OBO Bettermann.

With the media and communication column, OBO offers the perfect solution for an adaptable and modular design. From the protection of electrical systems via an individual lighting control and information from central communication and emergency call systems to the display of the time, the media pillar offers many possibilities.

The powder-coated steel column is flexible in the height compensation by the telescopic panel. The removable side panels ensure easy retrofitting and uncomplicated recording of speakers and signalers with C-rails behind the pinhole. A wall clock can be easily retrofitted to the corresponding empty field. Likewise, the installation of switching and plug-in devices is possible on the front or access-protected behind a lockable door.

The new media and communication column is as adaptable as the requirements placed on it. It provides sufficient reserves for further installations and can be retrofitted quickly and easily with a school call station. Thus, the column brings all the necessary configurations and covers all the requirements for the technical building equipment of a modern school.

Faster and brighter, under the toughest conditions:
theLeda EC LED spotlight with motion detector

Faster and brighter, under the toughest conditions:
theLeda EC LED spotlight with motion detector

Theben presents theLeda EC, a powerful, easy-to-install combination of LED spotlight and motion detector. The robust construction with polycarbonate housing, mounting brackets and screws made of stainless steel, heat sinks made of seawater-proof aluminum as well as completely lacquered electronics and protection class IP 55 offer optimum conditions for use in coastal regions.

theLeda EC is available in three versions: 10 W (750 lm), 20 W (1,500 lm) and 30 W (2,250 lm) with a color temperature of 4,000 K. The very low self-consumption and long life of the LED luminaires from to 30,000 hours save the environment and your wallet.

theLeda EC is available in black and white, offers a wide detection angle of 180 ° at 12 m range and can be flexibly aligned thanks to the rotatable sensor and swivel spotlights.

The Ratchet P-Clamp by cable management specialist HellermannTyton is a cable clamp with a specially developed ratchet fastener. It is suitable for example in rail vehicles for the attachment of pipes, hoses or pipes.

The Ratchet P-Clamp by cable management specialist HellermannTyton is a cable clamp with a specially developed ratchet fastener. It is suitable for example in rail vehicles for the attachment of pipes, hoses or pipes.

The design of the novel P-clamp allows the assembly by clamp at a single point of attachment, in two separate steps: pre-assembly and final assembly. The cumbersome handling of conventional P-clamps during assembly and maintenance is over.

The Ratchet P-Clamp can be easily closed by hand to the exact diameter. The serrated interior design automatically centers the bundles and minimizes the risk of crushing. Soft elastomer profiles are sold separately and provide strain relief and protection against vibration abrasion.
If required, the unique locking mechanism can be levered out with a flat-head screwdriver. This makes the robust Ratchet P-Clamp reusable several times over. No screws or bolts need to be removed. Maintenance engineers are enthusiastic because no complete disassembly is necessary anymore.

The Ratchet P-Clamp is available in four flexible sizes (A, B, C and D) covering all common diameters from 6.2mm to 51.0mm. The adjustable clamp diameter allows a reduction in the variety of parts of metal or plastic P-clamps with specific diameters.

The polyamide plastic (PA66V0) used complies with the safety standards of the European railway standard EN 45545-2. The corrosion-resistant mounting plate made of stainless steel is suitable for high torques. M6, M8, M10 and M12 hole sizes also ensure greater freedom of configuration than conventional P-clamps.

In addition, the design offers another attachment point for cable ties on the outer edge - to guide additional lines parallel to the bundle.

Convincing in design and precision - that promises the new Berker R.8. Because with its frame height of only three millimeters on the wall, the R.8 is one of the flattest switch ranges on the market. Selected materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, plastic and glass give the R.8 a particularly elegant appearance. In the version made of real glass, the new R.8 is even the slimmest switch currently available.

Convincing in design and precision - that promises the new Berker R.8. Because with its frame height of only three millimeters on the wall, the R.8 is one of the flattest switch ranges on the market. Selected materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, plastic and glass give the R.8 a particularly elegant appearance. In the version made of real glass, the new R.8 is even the slimmest switch currently available.

But also from a technical point of view, the new development from Berker is convincing. Cavity wall mounting is particularly simple: Here, the gray box is simply placed in a rectangular cutout and fastened there in the same way as conventional hollow wall boxes. Then the inserts are used and the installation is completed with the mounting of rockers / center pieces and frame.

As the majority of the switch is flush-mounted due to the almost flush mounting, Berker offers the installation principle of the so-called can-in-box mounting for installation in masonry and masonry walls. The functionality is as simple as it is efficient: First, a larger red flush-mounted box is anchored in the masonry in a previously installed opening. Subsequently, a smaller gray hollow wall box can be accurately inserted into the red box. For example, the can-in-box mounting compensates for the installation level, allowing for the use of ultra-flat frames. But even sensitive materials such as glass can be installed so shatterproof.

Regarding the variety of functions, the new R.8 also leaves nothing to be desired: its 1 to 4-fold frames can be combined with all inserts of the Berker switch ranges Berker R.1 and Berker R.3. In total, more than 150 switch and socket variants with motion detectors, blind switches, heating controllers and KNX push-button sensors as well as with power and data sockets or loudspeaker connections are possible. Rockers and socket inserts are available in gloss black and polar white gloss.
