Universal Lighting Technologies brings parallel lamp operation to step-dimming applications with the new LevelPRO family of high-efficiency ballasts. Flip one switch to cut power to lighting fixtures by 50 percent; flip another to cut the lights off entirely. And the entire lighting fixture remains evenly illuminated whether at full or half power. Ideal for classrooms, […]
OSRAM SYLVANIA has announced availability of new QUICKTRONIC HELIOS controllable compact fluorescent ballasts that offer continuous dimming down to very low light levels of 3%.

OSRAM SYLVANIA has announced the QUICKTRONIC ICETRON 100W Dimming System, available to meet forthcoming control requirements in exterior lighting applications as well as to bring increased flexibility and light level adjustability for its 100W ICETRON induction lamp. The QUICKTRONIC ICETRON 100W Dimming System offers two modes of control functionality–continuous dimming and step dimming–with a range […]
This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2011 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Jump Lighting by Philips Ledalite. Jump is a new portfolio of high performance direct luminaires that integrate daylight harvesting with the latest in light emitting diode (LED) or advanced fluorescent light sources. With more than two-thirds […]
This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2011 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Universal Lighting Technologies’ Demand Control Lighting (DCL) solution. DCL is designed to save time and money on installation, significantly lower energy consumption, and reduce payback periods. DEMANDflex ballasts are high-efficiency program-start ballasts with the flexibility to […]
ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR has published a video describing GE’s Ultramax Dimming and Load Shed Ballasts for fluorescent T8 lamp control at its website.
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.
Lightronics has announced the new Unity AB line of Architectural Ballast Drivers and true Non-Dim Relays. Projects of any size can benefit from Phase Dimming, 0 -10VDC and True non-dim ballast controllers. All three units include individually DMX addressable 20A relays, individual on/off threshold levels and 99 on-board user configurable scene memories that work with the company’s Unity Architectural Remote Stations. All relays are latching, and will remain in their current state until a new command is sent. Lightronics AB Relays are sold in configurations of 3, 6 and 12 circuits.
Leviton Manufacturing Company’s GreenMAX™ Relay Control System and Sector™ Intelligent Ballast Controls have both been named by Building Operating Management Magazine among its top 100 products of the year. There were over 500 products submitted and the winners were chosen by the building and facility management executives that subscribe to the magazine, 100% reader selected. Both the GreenMAX and Sector products will be featured in the January 2011 issue of Building Operating Management (BOM) as a Top Products Award Winner.
NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL, installed a light control system from Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. The Propellants North Administrative and Maintenance Facility is using innovative light control strategies to dramatically reduce energy consumption and maximize the use of available daylight.
