Hubbell Building Automation recently announced the release of its wiSTAR Wireless Lighting Controls based on EnOcean technology.
The wiSTAR Wireless Lighting Controls are designed specifically for indoor lighting applications and include an in-line switch module, single and dual rocker switches, a key card switch, ceiling and wall mounted occupancy sensors, a light sensor, and a plug-in switch module.
The wiSTAR In-Line module enables ON/OFF switching of lighting loads and utilizes radio frequency technology to communicate with other wiSTAR devices.
The self-powered wiSTAR switches use energy harvesting technology to communicate wirelessly with other wiSTAR devices and provide convenient control of lighting loads. The single and dual rocker switches and the key card switch are self-powered and never require batteries because the simple act of pressing the rocker or inserting/removing the key card generates enough energy to send a wireless signal to other wiSTAR devices.
Saving energy without sacrificing comfort can be effortless with occupancy-based controls. The self-powered wiSTAR ceiling and wall mounted occupancy sensors enable a new level of energy saving control for rooms, hallways and other common areas. The occupancy sensors communicate wirelessly with other wiSTAR controls to turn off lights when a space has been unoccupied for a set period of time. Integrated solar cells harvest light energy to power the sensor, eliminating the need for wires or batteries.
The self-powered wiSTAR Light Sensor with optional occupancy detection has built-in solar cells that draw on available ambient light to power itself and operate for up to 7 days in total darkness.
Controlling lamps and electronics in any room is simple with the wiSTAR Plug-In Switch Module. Simply plug the module into any standard outlet and then plug the lamp or other electronic device into the receptacle on the opposite end. Link the module to a wiSTAR switch or occupancy sensor for convenient wireless control
