Douglas Lighting Controls, a member of the Panasonic Group, recently introduced its DLC Bluetooth® Fixture Controller & Sensor.
The DLC Bluetooth® Fixture Controller & Sensor provides individual and group control of parking garage light fixtures (LED or other) using onboard sensors and Bluetooth wireless technology. The device features a fixture-mounted 360° occupancy and daylight sensor and a relay for true ON/OFF, 0–10V dimming control. For locations that require some level of lighting at all times, bi-level lighting can be activated to enable low level light when the parking area is unoccupied and full level light when occupied.
Using a free smartphone app, deck level commissioning is done using Bluetooth wireless communication. Upon installation, the app allows the installer to create a zone of fixtures. Bluetooth technology is then used to create a wireless mesh network for communication across controllers (fixtures), enabling zone lighting activation. When one fixture in a zone is activated, all other fixtures within the zone will be activated using the Bluetooth mesh network.
The DLC Bluetooth Fixture Controller & Sensor is designed to integrate with most vapor tight fixtures and is engineered to operate in harsh outdoor environments where weatherproofing is required. It is powered from the fixture (120/277/347Vac) and mounts directly to the end of the vapor tight unit through a standard knock-out. The new device provides a solution for meeting ASHRAE 90.1 and Title 24 energy code requirements.
