Leviton Manufacturing is launching at the 2010 International Builders’ Show® the industry’s first slide dimmer specifically designed for use with a wide variety of dimmable CFL bulbs. The Leviton Decora® CFL Slide Dimmer optimizes the performance of dimmable CFL bulbs and works with the widest range of dimmable CFL bulbs available.
Daylight harvesting’s value proposition is fairly simple: As daylight levels increase in a space, electric light levels can be automatically reduced to maintain a target task light level and save energy. All automatic daylight harvesting control systems need a device that can measure light levels and signal a controller to dim or switch the lights in response to daylight contribution. This device is called a photosensor. The photosensor is a small device that can include a light-sensitive photocell, input optics and an electronic circuit used to convert the photocell signal into an output control signal, all within a housing and with mounting hardware.
Leviton Manufacturing rolled out the red carpet for over 75 local area distributors seeking to obtain an up close and personal view of the company’s new high-performance, energy-efficient world headquarters complex.
