Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. has announced the introduction of the Energi Savr Node™ modular lighting control system.
Energi Savr Node is a simple, programmable, completely scalable module for controlling light and saving energy in any commercial space. Energi Savr Node is targeted to the commercial construction and renovation markets with three models-EcoSystem® Energi Savr Node, Softswitch® Energi Savr Node, and Energi Savr Node for 0-10V dimming. All three modules can connect to wired or wireless occupancy/vacancy sensors, daylight sensors and wallstations for total light management. With Lutron Energi Savr Node, users can realize up to a 60% decrease in lighting energy usage with dimming, occupancy sensing and daylighting.
The low profile enclosure easily fits above a ceiling or into other small spaces, with line voltage and low voltage wiring connecting to terminal blocks. Radio Powr Savr™ sensors and Pico™ controls communicate wirelessly to take advantage of energy-saving light control strategies like occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, and personal control. Their wireless capabilities and easy installation make them ideal for retrofit applications. Softswitch Energi Savr Node uses Lutron’s Softswitch relay technology, which is rated for 1,000,000 cycles, and has switching capacity for up to 16A of any lighting load.
Energi Savr Node is completely scalable. Users can control a single space or multiple areas with one module, or link modules together for integrated control of a larger space. Energi Savr Node operates as a stand-alone system with sensors, wall controls and remotes, or connects to Lutron’s Quantum™ total light management system to easily scale from a single space to an entire building.
Best of all, Energi Savr Node literally works “right out of the box.” Sensors and keypads can be connected immediately—no commissioning required. Daylighting and occupancy settings can be easily adjusted with controls located on the unit or using an intuitive application for the Apple iPod touch or iPhone.
“Lutron has been a consistent force in driving innovation for light control solutions,” says Graham Christensen, Product Manager for Energi Savr Node. “Energi Savr Node is an excellent example of providing customers with simple, scalable, and reliable tools that not only meet, but also exceed the changing demands of the commercial market.”
