SELF-POWERE D
So, think about the benefits
that can bring both you and
the end user.
It’s a state-of-the-art, modern and stylish idea. But it’s
also hugely practical. Echo switches don’t need wiring
to the mains. So work, man-hours, and materials are
reduced, and costs go down.
Wireless offers the benefits of instant switch installation
and total location flexibility – resulting in reduced costs
and disruption as well as improved speed and ease of
installation which are invaluable for areas needing to
rearrange space periodically, e.g. commercial offices,
or those where the invasive channelling of walls isn’t
permitted or feasible, such as historic buildings or glass
partition walls.
No need to plaster, redecorate or
repair walls

the nuisance factor.
Negating the need to buy, fit or replace batteries,
saving material costs.
Maintenance can also be a costly on-going issue, both
to diagnose any potential issue and to resolve them.
Without batteries the nuisance factor is removed.
Disposing of batteries is no longer a concern, providing
a more sustainable option to suit your environment.

640 million portable batteries were sold in the UK
in 1999 alone. Almost 25,000 tonnes of portable
batteries were placed on the UK market in 2003.
Current collection rates of less than 3% mean
millions go to UK landfill every year, posing an
environmental risk.

Wireless, batteryless and self-powered.
What could be simpler and more flexible
to the needs of your environment?
BATT ERYless
SELF-POWERE D
Wireless means total location flexibility. Invaluable when space
needs to be re-arranged periodically, e.g. commercial offices.
Office ‘churn’ is often costly, disruptive and time consuming,
vastly reduce this with switches free from the constraints of wiring.
Echo is ideal for applications where the invasive channelling of
walls isn’t permitted, such as listed buildings or historic buildings
– houses, conversions, etc, or where it isn’t feasible such as glass
partion walls or exposed brick walls.
Simply mount directly on to the wall or mount on a back box
in the traditional manner. Or even with adhesive pads.*
Fitting or relocating them doesn’t need to damage walls or
disrupt the building. Creating new space layouts – becomes
much easier and less costly.
If a range of up to 300 metres in an open field and 30m in
a typical building isn't enough, a repeater is available to
extend the range. The echo remote control is also available
for additional useability.

Essentially, it works by ‘harvesting’ energy from the actual
act of flicking the switch.
Coverage is up to 30 metres in typical buildings, with
repeaters available for simple coverage extension or to
get around impervious materials like granite and steel.
One receiver can be operated by up to as many as 30
switches and one switch can activate as many receivers
as you need.
All it takes is the power of a single finger.

Pressing the rocker creates a small amount of
electrical energy, sufficient to transmit a radio signal
to a switch receiver, which is wired into the lighting
circuit – thereby turning the light on or off. The switch
is then aligned to the receiver by putting it into learn
mode & pressing the rocker. The switch itself doesn’t
house energy – the energy is created by the push
of the rocker.
Echo switches can also be operated
using a remote control

commercial environment
wireless
The advantages of using
echo switches in a commercial
environment are considerable.
Businesses move, grow and change – and their
premises with them. Re-shaping a building’s layout
is notoriously costly, labour intensive and disruptive.
Echo’s secure 868MHz frequency assures immunity against
interference, proven with systems such as DECT, PMR and
WLAN etc.
If coverage of up to 30m in a typical building isn’t enough,
an echo repeater provides simple coverage extension.
A field strength indicator is available to simplify installation
by testing the signal strength from proposed positioning
of the echo switch and receiver module.

receiver
Echo switch (transmitters) can be assigned or unassigned to a switch receiver simply and quickly – time and time again.
Switch receiver modules are controlled by radio signals from the echo switch.
Switch receiver modules can be operated by up to 30 MK echo switches.
Up to 30 echo switches can control a switch receiver module – this is due to the receivers built in memory,
in the ‘learn mode.’
Echo switches can operate any number of switch receivers.
Switch receivers' memories are ‘empty’ when dispatched, ready for setting.
To eliminate inadvertent programming, when in ‘learn mode', the switch receiver sensitivity is reduced to approximately
5 metres from the echo switch.
A field strength test should be carried out to ensure a successful installation.

•Press and hold down the LRN button on the surface of the switch
receiver – after 0.3 seconds Programming Mode is activated.
•Any switch can be assigned to a switch receiver.
•The switch receiver relay will operate and the load connected
to it will cycle (one second) on and off for visual confirmation.
On the 10A switch receiver an LED is also provided so even
with no load connected a visual feedback is given.
•Hold and press the CLR button for 2 seconds to delete the
receivers memory. The switch receiver is now ready
for programming.

•Press and release the rocker – the switch receiver relay will stop
for approximately 4 seconds to confirm receipt of the command
before resuming recycling of the load.
•Switches can be un-assigned in the same way. If wanting to
un-assign one switch transmitter from a group, while the switch
receiver relay is cycling, press the rocker of the unit no longer
needed and this will now be un-assigned.
•During the one second cycling of the relay, additional echo
switches can be programmed to assign (or un-assign) as required.
•The programming mode is left by re-pressing the LRN button, or
after 30 seconds of no activity the receiver exits the Programming
Mode automatically.

product range
technical
information
wireless
range
information
MK echo works at a frequency of 868.3 MHz.
The signal will attenuate between the echo switch (transmitter) and
switch receiver. This means that the further the signal has to travel
the more the signal intensity decreases, thus restricting range.
Range is also affected by what materials are present around the
product, for example, metal does not allow radio signals to pass
through it. So check where you are installing the product because
you might need to install repeaters.
In open air the range can be up to 300 metres
However, in places such as halls, the Logic Plus switch transmitters
would have a range of up to 100 metres. This range could be
attenuated by concrete or brick walls, reducing it to 30 metres.
Decorative variants with metal frontplates, have a range of up to
30 metres in areas such as halls. Attenuation could reduce this.
Other factors that could affect range:
•Switch transmitter mounted on metal surfaces
(Up to 30% loss of range).
• False ceilings with panels of metal or carbon fibre.
•Mounting transmitter or receiver on floor or close to floor
or towards corner.
•Devices transmitting RF signals such as computers, audio
and video equipment, or electronic gear controls for lamps.
A minimum distance of 0.5m should be kept.

frequently
asked questions
Field strength indicator tests the strength of the radio signal from
the echo switch prior to installation.
Position the echo switch at its desired mounting position and the
field strength indicator at the desired position of the switch receiver,
then press the switch rocker.
A GREEN light confirms a sufficient radio signal, RED indicates there
is an insufficient signal and positioning needs to be adjusted.
Repeater
The repeater can be used to extend the reception distance of
an echo switch. All that is needed is a 250 volt a.c. 50Hz supply.
If a switch receiver is required to be mounted at a distance and
in an environment that offers poor reliability in switch receiver
operation, then a repeater can be used physically positioned
somewhere between the switch transmitter and the switch receiver.
What products do I need for an echo system?
An echo switch transmitter and a switch receiver – the latter would
be wired to the lighting circuit. See page 22-23 for more details.
How is the switch receiver wired into the lighting circuit?
Wire the receiver into the lighting circuit, similar to a
transformer/ballast.
How many switch receivers will an echo switch operate?
A switch receiver can be set to be operated by up to 30
echo switch transmitters.
Is MK echo RoHs compliant?
The echo range falls outside of the scope of RoHS. However MK
have expressly designed all echo products using material free from
the hazardous substances restricted by RoHS.
How many echo switches can operate a switch receiver?
An echo switch can operate any number of switch receivers
for endless flexibility.
Does the MK echo range come with a guarantee?
Like all MK Electronic products, MK echo also has a comprehensive
10 year product guarantee as standard.
What is the signal range echo switches can transmit?
Echo switches transmit to switch receivers within a range of 30
metres in a typical building. (Up to 300 metres in an open field).
Building materials will affect the signal.
What type of switch contacts are in the products?
Receiver relay contacts are μ gap.
The repeater is not designed to directly switch a load but will receive
transmissions from any echo switch and relay them on to an MK
switch receiver.
Can the signal pass through all materials?
The signal is attenuated to varying degrees by materials such as
metal or granite, in such instances the repeater can be used
to ‘boost’ the radio signal strength.
Repeaters do not have to be assigned to be able to operate within
the circuit, unlike switch receivers. As long as a signal from an echo
switch is received, the repeater will relay exactly that signal such
that only the correct switch receiver will be activated.
How can I be sure there is sufficient signal strength?
MK’s field strength indicator tests the radio signal strength from the
echo switch to switch receiver prior to installation – saving you time
and money.
Only one repeater can be used in any circuit.
Will MK echo interfere with other systems?
Echo does not interfere with systems such as DECT, WLAN,
PMR, etc.
NOTE: For further information regards product installation, please visit
www.switchonmk.com to view or download the Echo Installers Guide.
What are the terminal capacities of the switch receivers?
Small load switch receiver – 1.5mm2 single stranded
10A switch receiver – 1mm2 to 2x2.5mm2
How is the system affected in the event of a power loss?
Switch Receivers are mains failure sensitive, i.e. they will function
under all normal conditions but will switch off in the event of a
power cut or dramatic interruption in mains voltage.
