LIGHTFAIR recently announced 14 winners of its 2020 LIGHTFAIR Innovation Awards, which recognize innovative products and designs introduced by 2020 exhibitors during the last 12 months.
An independent panel of judges chosen from the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) selected the LIA winners from 146 submissions through a meticulous two-day judging process. Criteria included the product’s clarity of purpose, versatility, adaptability, sustainability, ease of use, design efficiency and aspects that enhanced human wellbeing.
In the lighting controls category, 12 products were submitted to the 2020 awards, with RAB Lighting being recognized as both a category winner and with a Technical Innovation Award.
RAB’s Lightcloud Outlet is a tamper-resistant duplex receptacle that delivers plug-load control and measured power monitoring for loads up to 20A. The bottom receptacle is always ON, and the top receptacle can be controlled manually (app, touch, or local dimmer), schedules, occupancy/vacancy/daylight sensors, or advanced automation such as variable control throughout the day. Energy use can be viewed from the Lightcloud Web App or exported to PDF or CSV. The Outlet is compatible with all RAB Lightcloud systems and extends the range of Lightcloud wireless mesh.
The Lightcloud Outlet has energy meters for each receptacle for precision power monitoring and energy savings across controlled and always-on receptacles. Energy data and insights are available through the intuitive, cloud-based Web App.
