CP Electronics simplifies lighting control installations with new video Tech Reel

Following high demand from installers, a new online video library from CP Electronics has been launched to help contractors with the installation processes of its lighting control systems.
Hosted on the CP Electronics website, the new Tech-Reel videos allow installers to access a wide range of ‘how-to’ videos on site, ensuring products are installed correctly.
With new videos being uploaded regularly throughout the year, the Tech-Reel video library includes; unboxing videos, programming guides, product assembly, wiring, termination and installation videos.
Available on desktop and via a mobile browser, contractors can use the new videos to gain further knowledge prior to beginning a job, or when troubleshooting a problem on site.
Products included in the videos include presence and absence detectors, dimming switches, and CP’s Vitesse Modular control system.
Mike Brooks, Marketing Manager, at CP Electronics, said: “Our new Tech Reel is a great tool for contractors to ensure CP products are installed to the highest quality. By having access to it via smartphones, customers can quickly get the answers they need while on site and get on with the job at hand – having obvious benefits for productivity and meeting deadlines.
“By installing lighting controls in line with our best practice videos, the commissioning process also becomes far simpler and minimises any risk of having to make changes after the installation has taken place.”
The Tech-Reel video complements CP’s already extensive resource library which includes; the knowledge-hub, technical bulletins, CPD seminars, BIM and CP’s digital library. These resources are available to ensure installers have all the resources and tools needed to complete projects correctly, safely and efficiently.


University students gain work-place insight from Ashridge Group

The Buckinghamshire Business Awards Company of the Year 2018 has maintained its commitment to the local community by collaborating with The University of Buckingham to provide work experience opportunities for students.
Nadia Sylvester and Andrew Gibson studied a one-year Masters course in Entrepreneurial Consulting and Practice (MECP) at the University of Buckingham. Both recently spent time with Ashridge Group, attending meetings, events and getting involved with the day to day challenges of running a successful business. The students then presented a final presentation on their findings to Ashridge Group, followed by a report that would contribute to their final grade.
Nadia says she found the experience useful towards her overall understanding, “With great support from Ashridge Group, we gained a great deal of knowledge about the Facility Management sector” she said. “I learned a lot about leadership and would definitely recommend Ashridge Group to other university students based on my experience. I found everyone at the HQ friendly, open and willing to give their time and access to the business.”
Andrew agreed, saying, “I would certainly recommend future collaboration with Ashridge Group. We have learned an enormous amount about the management of a successful SME, as well as the research and academic requirements in providing a consulting service”.
Based in Aylesbury, Ashridge Group provides services and consultancy to sectors as diverse as corporates, live entertainment venues, rail and critical national infrastructure. Championing a people-oriented approach to business development, the company also looks to develop partnerships with other suppliers in the county as part of its aim to support the growth of the local economy.
Mark Walker, Group Chairman at Ashridge Group, said “We were delighted that The University of Buckingham students embraced our company’s values of Diligence, Passion, Competence and Responsiveness. We are pleased to receive such positive feedback and from Nadia and Andrew, we hope that the experience will aid them in their future careers. This has been a useful exercise for our business too and we will undoubtedly look at providing similar opportunities again”.
Dean Jones, Partnerships and Outreach Manager at The University of Buckingham, said “Ashridge Group initially contacted us after hearing about the support we offer to social enterprises. This has been a beneficial exercise as it has given the students a chance to operate within a real business, where they need to have an awareness of the market around them, and consult on problems that aren’t just confined to a pre-written case study”.
As Ashridge Group continues to expand, the business is looking to build on the value of its ‘people first’ ethos, which focuses on prioritising its own employees’ needs to deliver customer service excellence.
Last year, The Ashridge Group Charity Foundation was launched to provide free of charge knowledge sharing and accredited training courses in subjects such as First Aid, Manual Handling, and Safeguarding; as well as awarding financial assistance to various charitable and community group projects and campaigns in Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, and Bedfordshire.


Next Generation Of ANPR To Be Showcased At Parkex

Nortech, UK specialists in long-range identification solutions, will be launching and providing live demonstrations of Nedap’s next generation of ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) camera at this year’s Parkex.
The ANPR Access V2 short-range keeps up with the rapid growing demand for effective number-plate reading. It is purposely designed for vehicle access control applications whilst ensuring customers benefit from the latest developments in ANPR technology.     
The ANPR Access V2 has also been selected by the Parkex 2019 panel of industry experts as one of 10 prime examples of cutting-edge innovations that have emerged within the market in the last 12 months.
In a relatively short period of time, number-plate recognition technology for vehicle access control has become very popular. Nedap’s ANPR cameras identify vehicles by capturing their number plates, making it the perfect solution for applications where it is undesirable or not possible to issue (RFID) tags. It is ideal in situations where vehicles need to be granted continual or temporary access to a site such as in employee or visitor parking applications.
The ANPR Access V2 supersedes Nedap’s ANPR Access offering better performance, power over Ethernet, built in Wiegand modes and it now has 28 European libraries preloaded by default. Furthermore, it is still fully backwards compatible with existing installations.
This new camera can also easily integrate with any third party security, parking and traffic management systems by accessing the built-in Wiegand options.
The ANPR Access V2 cameras take the effectiveness of using ANPR for vehicle access control to the next level. Its available options for configuration and interfacing have been enhanced and extended, making ANPR now a viable option for installations all over the world, including the Pacific and the USA.
Nortech has supplied products and solutions to the security industry for over 25 years as an independent British company. The company uses extensive experience and expertise to create new security products to fit their clients’ needs and designs everything with the customer in mind.
Visit Nortech at Parkex 2019 on 2-4 April at Birmingham’s NEC to find out more about the many systems available and how they can benefit the future of people and vehicle control solutions.
