This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2011 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Leviton Manufacturing Company’s wireless radio-frequency self-powered lighting control products.
Leviton’s LevNet RF™ line of wireless energy management devices integrates Leviton’s design and performance with EnOcean’s wireless control technology. With no wires to run, the family of LevNet RF devices reduces labor and material costs and takes only minutes to configure. Once installed, LevNet RF devices can be used in virtually any commercial retrofit environment to control energy consumption and reduce carbon emissions.
LevNet RF wireless control devices meet a wide range of application requirements in addition to occupancy detection. Devices can be used for single-pole On/Off switching, multi-location switching, HVAC control, motor control and more. The family of products includes: 1) Wireless Sensors and Companion Wall Switch and Remote Receivers; 2) Remote Switches for Lighting and Temperature Control; 3) SLT Circuit Interlock and 4-Channel Transmitters; 4) 3- and 5-Way Line Voltage Relay Receivers; 5) Plug-In Dimmer and ON/OFF Relay Receivers; and, 6) 2-, 3- and 4-Channel Room Receivers, 2-Channel Shade Controller, and 4-and 8-Channel Relay Receivers. Accessories such as an RS-232 Signal Box Data Interface and Signal Strength Meter extend the functionality of the devices.
LevNet RF self-powered transmitters do not require external power and there are no batteries or components to replace or maintain. Devices are interoperable and can interact with other devices on the LevNet RF wireless network.
Ideally suited to achieve energy savings in hospitality applications, the LevNet RF Key Card Switch signals a room’s electrical and HVAC controllers to automatically turn lights off and set-back the HVAC system when guests leave their rooms. It turns lighting back on and adjusts temperature controls when guests re-enter using the Key Card. Levnet RF’s innovative Wireless Thermostat receives signals from transmitting devices such as LevNet RF occupancy sensors or the LevNet RF Card Switch and adjusts temperature controls when occupancy is detected.
LevNet RF occupancy sensors use artificial light and switch products use kinetic energy to power themselves, further adding to energy savings. LevNet RF transmitters and receivers can send and receive signals from 50-150 feet in range. Products come with a 3-Year Limited Warranty, and have a performance lifespan of over 20 years. All devices are NAFTA- and Buy America Act compliant.
