LMLS-500 Photosensor by WattStopper: A multi-zone switching and dimming digital photosensor that integrates with occupancy sensors for maximum energy savings.
WattStopper has launched Control Six Online, a new free online tool to help users pinpoint ideal lighting control solutions for the six types of spaces most commonly found in commercial buildings. This interactive selector offers two levels of performance, with unlimited access to a single room Quick Selector and login access to a Multi-Room Selector developed for professional users. Both versions prompt users to input information about each space in order to recommend appropriate products.
Last month, the Lighting Controls Association published a guide to the new ASHRAE/IES 90.1-2010 standard, focusing on its prescriptive lighting power requirements as well as significant changes to its scope and administrative requirements. In Part 2 of this series on the new standard, we will focus on its extensive new mandatory and optional lighting control requirements. Regarding controls, the changes are nothing short of historic.
WattStopper’s Digital Lighting Management and technical lighting control expertise facilitated completion of Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ new iPrep Academy within tight timeframes. The fast track remodeling project challenged the design and construction teams, as the work had to be completed in just three months. When Miami-Dade County Public Schools set out to create an engaging, high tech learning environment for its new iPrep Academy, the project team selected Digital Lighting Management (DLM) controls, including dimming devices, personal controls and occupancy sensors. The controls enhance the remodeled Miami school, updated with colorful open spaces incorporating digital teaching tools, while also meeting the requirements of the ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 energy code.
WattStopper has announced that it has received a 2011 Building Operating Management Top Product Award for its innovative Digital Lighting Management (DLM) product line. An all-digital suite of plug-together lighting controls, DLM automatically configures to the most energy efficient sequence of operation based on installed components. The result is that DLM meets and exceeds energy code requirements, saves more energy than conventional controls, and provides an unprecedented return on investment for both new construction and retrofit projects.
WattStopper recently announced that it has received a 2011 Building Operating Management Top Product Award for its unique PW-103N multi-way wall switch occupancy sensor with LED nightlight. The sensor provides economical, code-compliant lighting control in a wide variety of applications. The factory default setting is for manual-on operation, to ensure that optimal energy efficiency is available. Lighting remains on as long as any one of the connected sensors detects occupancy. When the space is no longer occupied, lighting will automatically turn off following a time delay that begins when the last sensor ceases to detect occupancy. Lighting can be turned off manually from any of the sensors at any time. If automatic-on operation is preferred, sensors may be easily adjusted.

WattStopper’s $10,000 contribution has helped the University of California at Davis achieve the financial goal required to endow the new Arthur H. Rosenfeld Chair in Energy Efficiency. The endowment will be used to recognize and support an exceptional member of the energy efficiency faculty at UC Davis. The chair holder will promote the Energy Efficiency Center’s mission to accelerate the commercialization of energy-efficiency technologies, teach future leaders in energy efficiency, and conduct critical policy-supporting research.
WattStopper completed its 8-city Digital Lighting Management (DLM) Roadshow, Making the Connection, recently. This event showcased the functionality of DLM lighting controls, within a framework of market drivers, meeting and exceeding energy codes such as ASHRAE 90.1-2010, achieving sustainability goals, and advancing intelligent building operations. The company developed the event in response to market demand in learning about the capabilities of the innovative control offering.
