Lighting fixtures designed for use in health care facilities must provide effective illumination and satisfy a number of demanding lighting and environmental requirements. And Engineered Products Company (EPCO) Fixture Whips are the common thread among all of a Health Care Facility’s lighting systems.
We offer a broad variety of Health Care Fixture Whips in multiple configurations for LED (and Fluorescent) lighting systems that provide power and can integrate easily and efficiently with digital lighting controls for dimming and switching to improve building operations for virtually all health care environments.
EPCO’s Health Care Fixture Whips meet the requirements for 2023 National Electrical Code: Articles 300.3(B)(2), (C)(1), Section 725.136(I)(1), and 725.139(A through D)(1), and California Title 24 Lighting Controls, Articles 130.1(A)(B)(C)(D)(E). They are a cost-effective solution saving the contractor time and labor when compared to buying and terminating expensive MC cable or making a fixture whip solution on the job site.
The Illumination Control Health Care Fixture Whip meets all UL and NEC standards for combining power and lighting circuits with Class 1 control circuits within the same fixture whip. It can also be used in new or retrofit construction for lighting systems operating at 120/277 VAC.
- Recommended for use as an energy management solution to reduce energy consumption and optimize facility lighting.
- Best used in conjunction with an independent room controller.
- Can be used to control lighting operations used in combination with occupancy sensors.
- Supports “green” construction practice.
We also build “custom” Health Care Fixture Whips to your specifications in any length or wire gauge size using UL Listed components. Contact our Inside Sales Department (800.336.1976 or email@example.com) for more specific information.
