Luminaire Supporting Couplers (LSC) complying with BS7001 are recognised as the industry standard interface, offering complete interchangeability with other manufacturers’ products to this standard. Eaton offers both 3 and 4 pin LSC units, with or without cables, and a choice of either Heat Resistant PVC (HR), or Low Smoke and Fume (LSF) cables fitted. Both versions provide considerable benefits for the specifier, contractor and end user. LSC represents a significant advance in the safety and ease of installation of lighting points.
The Industry Standard
3 pin system
This version has a wide range of applications in many commercial and industrial environments. Its technical and design features are supplemented with a full range of plug, outlets, assemblies, pendants and mounting boxes. In use, it provides flexibility for the specifier, easy installation for the contractor and convenience for the end users.
4 pin system
This version has been specifically designed for applications where an extra live conductor is required i.e. emergency lighting. It has all the benefits of the 3 pin system, but the auxiliary live conductor gives greater flexibility in switching capabilities. It can also be used as a time delay trigger mechanism and offers greater control over multi-lamp luminaires.
LDU Multi-outlet Box
The LDU Multi-outlet boxes utilise the LSC ‘plug-in’ lighting interface allowing luminaires to be plugged in, providing safety without isolation of the circuit. The LDU (Lighting Distribution Unit) incorporates LSC outlets which accept both Eaton’s 3 and 4 pin plugs. The 4 pin plug uses the fourth auxiliary socket contact for emergency lighting requirements.
