Encelium Technologies has introduced its new family of low-voltage occupancy sensors. This product line includes a full range of passive infrared (PIR) and dual technology (Ultrasonic/PIR) low-voltage sensors available in both wall mount and ceiling mount configurations. PIR and Ultrasonic line-voltage wall switches are also available as are 120V, 277V and 347V power packs. Any […]
This video by Walters Wholesale Electric introduces the building industry to the Philips OccuSwitch Wireless Control System, an advanced, energy-saving occupancy sensor system that automatically turns lights off in an unoccupied room. This unique indoor Plug and Play system is ideally suited to retrofits as well as new installations in commercial applications. With a 10-year […]
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.
Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. has introduced the new Stairwell Retrofit Solution that automatically adjusts light output based on stairwell occupancy. The new Stairwell Retrofit Solution utilizes a lighting fixture with a Lutron digital dimming ballast preprogrammed to occupied and unoccupied light levels specific to a project’s code requirements. The fixture receives a signal from Radio Powr Savr™ occupancy sensors via reliable Lutron Clear Connect™ RF technology. The solution’s design features separate fixture and sensor components which allow for the flexibility to determine occupancy sensor quantities, mounting configuration, and placement requirements based on the stairwell design.
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.
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.
