Lutron Electronics recently announced its new Sensor Layout and Tuning Service to assure that wired or wireless Lutron daylight sensors and occupancy sensors help projects achieve their energy-savings goals.
Installing occupancy sensors and daylight sensors can be an inexact science, and sensor fine-tuning is best performed after the space is fully occupied, furniture is in place, and the HVAC system is balanced to the environment. Projects that include the new Lutron Sensor Layout and Tuning Service offer building owners and facility managers the assurance that the Lutron-provided sensors will be installed and calibrated to perform as intended.
The Sensor Layout and Tuning Service is essentially a three-step process.
* A Lutron service representative will analyze reflected ceiling plans for the project and design a detailed sensor layout based on an agreed-upon sequence of operations.
* Prior to, or during system startup, Lutron may advise installing contractor regarding sensor relocation in the event that conditions in the space deviate from the original drawings
* Lutron will provide up to two additional onsite service visits, post startup, within the first calendar year from the time the building is turned over, to fine-tune sensor calibration.
Tuning the sensors to meet the specific conditions of the space results in more comfortable, productive occupants and satisfied building owners.
