Meeting the needs of an evolving workplace

Marking the latest addition to its data centre solutions, Eastern Electrical has secured sole distribution rights for Bachmann monitoring and control systems and Basor containment systems.

Operating a network of 15 locations throughout Ireland, the electrical wholesale distributor opened a new Project & Export Office at its Ballymount headquarters in early 2023.

The new department enhances traceability and efficiency by consolidating orders, technical paperwork and certification for data centre projects carried out by Irish contractors abroad.

And now Bachmann and Basor have joined its portfolio of leading suppliers offering innovative, sustainable and cost-effective solutions to the sector. Other brands include Zumtobel Group (Tecton, light controls, Ebox and Litecom), Lutron (lighting controls), BEGA (Lighting) and DETA (conduit and accessories).

Bachmann monitoring and control systems

Among ranges supplied by Bachmann are its BlueNet intelligent product series, Essentials Collection of core functional and architectural power solutions for the workspace and OCHNO meeting room systems. Founded in 1947, the Stuttgart-based firm offers more than 2,500 power products manufactured at factories in Germany, Romania and China. 

BlueNet is a complete range of solutions for rack-based power distribution in data centres, using smart functions to lower energy consumption.

Residual current monitoring detects issues at an early stage to prevent downtime and increase data centre availability, while surge protection devices help users avoid equipment damage from spikes and surges. The Essentials Collection focuses on simplicity, while maintaining all the design and technical features of the product range.

OCHNO Systems, meanwhile, helps users create smart, user-friendly meeting rooms. Occupants can switch between their own devices and the permanently installed conference system, share media content seamlessly and charge their devices with just one cable. 

Basor Electric containment systems

Innovative design, high durability and excellent quality are hallmarks of Basor Electric’s cable management systems for data centres. 

Founded in Spain in 1962, the firm has since gone global with 10 subsidiaries and 1,300 distributors around the world. 

Its Basorfil wire basket trays are ideal for crowded spaces and changing technologies in data centres, data closets and tenant areas. Turns, tees, rises and drops can be quickly created on site to meet specific project needs, managing UTP cables, fibre optics, video, alarm and power cables.

A self-assembly fixation system offers easier assembly without tools and, safety edges avoid damage to cables alongside ventilation and cleanliness.

Basor also supplies a Cable Ladder Runway designed to support power cables in equipment rooms and pathways connecting to and supporting telecommunication racks or cabinets.

Its easy-to-use, cost-effective management system for fragile optical cables facilitates routing of fibre-optic cables between equipment, providing the physical protection and bend radius management crucial to optical cable performance.
