This short video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2011 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to WattStopper’s Isolé plug load control product line. This controller provides a convenient way for building managers to prevent wasted energy from a wide variety of electrical devices in private and modular offices. Isolé couples a personal occupancy sensor with a surge-protected power strip to turn off unneeded devices when a space is vacant while also protecting expensive equipment. It is the only occupancy-based plug load controller available.
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.
Zone5 Daylight Harvesting System by Hubbell Building Automation: A daylight harvesting system including occupancy sensors, daylight sensors and low voltage switches, to control 1 on/off and 4 variable lighting zones.
