Lutron Electronics recently unveiled Quantum Select packages to provide simple, cost-effective, scalable options for adding select capabilities typically found in larger centralized lighting and energy management systems to smaller, more specialized applications. Lutron Quantum Total Light Management system maximizes the efficient use of light to improve comfort and productivity, simplify operations and save energy. This […]
This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2011 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Panasonic’s Full-2Way lighting control system, currently being used in thousands of installations throughout North America in commercial/industrial buildings, public schools and universities, hotels, hospitals/healthcare, transportation and more. The Full-2Way bus is a low-voltage, two-wire, topology free […]
WattStopper has published a great series of short videos to educate the public about the networking capabilities of its DLM lighting control solution. Click to see these videos.
Acuity Brands is expanding its indoor ambient LED lighting offering with the launch of the Lithonia Lighting VTLED volumetric luminaire with embedded with nLight™ lighting control technology. VTLED is a high-quality, volumetric LED fixture designed for general purpose applications. They join the RTLED, ACLED and TLED recessed LED luminaires that launched last year.
WattStopper has launched two powerful daylighting sensors that allow engineers, building owners and installers unprecedented options when designing, purchasing and implementing daylight harvesting systems. The new LMLS-400 and LMLS-500 may be used for switching or dimming applications, and are specifically designed for easy integration with occupancy sensors and other lighting controls. Both digital photosensors include a two-way infrared (IR) transceiver for communication with a wireless configuration tool, and the LMLS-400 features automatic commissioning for either switching or dimming, an industry first. By developing both open and closed loop control solutions for a full range of dimming and switching control strategies, WattStopper now offers the most complete and most flexible range of daylighting control options on the market.
Leviton’s SECTOR™ Intelligent Ballast and Lighting Control System combines several energy-saving technologies–occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting and dimming–into one conveniently integrated system. This topology free system uses the same wiring type for all SECTOR™ components and accessories making it one of the easiest lighting control systems to install. To further simplify installation, all components are on a single bus, with accessories connected to the network, not the ballast. The SECTOR™ family of products provides a scalable solution that offers maximum flexibility and maximum coverage in any application–from a single room to a campus of buildings.
LMCT-100 Digital Wireless Configuration Tool by WattStopper: Two-way wireless infrared configuration tool for convenient ladder-free setup and maintenance of the company’s DLM lighting controls.
Encelium Technologies has introduced its new CarbonWatch (CWED) energy dashboard software application. Working in conjunction with the company’s revolutionary Energy Control SystemTM, this application continuously displays a building’s energy and carbon reduction performance in a configurable slide-show format.
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.
