A brand new flag is flying high over the Universal Lighting Technologies manufacturing plant in Matamoros, Mexico. The facility is officially green and clean. The federal government of Mexico certified the plant as a “Clean Industry” under the prestigious Industria Limpia program.
Watt Stopper/Legrand has developed a new occupancy sensor with a special coverage pattern tailored to meet the needs of retail applications with refrigerated cases. The FS-705 Wide-angle PIR Occupancy Sensor detects motion in aisleways in order to turn display lighting on when a customer approaches and off when it is not needed. The sensor may also be used to control general lighting and vending machines.
Sensor Switch has announced the introduction of its Refrigerator Aisle Occupancy Sensor Kit (model # RA-KIT), which utilizes a specialized occupancy sensor to increase energy efficiency in refrigerator/freezer units used in retail environments. The Refrigerator Aisle Kit contains everything required for both detecting occupants within an aisle of commercial-style refrigerator/freezer cases and controlling the cases’ internal LED lighting.
Sensor Switch has added a WallPod Scene Controller to its revolutionary nLight Control System. The Scene Controller is a single gang, low voltage device that provides a convenient method of selecting one of four custom lighting control scenes for a room. Unlike most scene controllers that adjust only on/off and dim settings, the scenes run by the nLight WallPod Scene Controller can contain any of a multitude of settings available for the nLight devices within its zone.
