Three of Leviton’s new product innovations—SectorFlex distributed digital lighting controls, OSFHP and OSFHD high bay occupancy sensors with integrated light sensors and Series 3000 Intelligent Meter—were chosen by the judges at Design Journal magazine as recipients of the 2012 ADEX (Award for Design Excellence) received Platinum, Gold and Silver Awards, respectively. These products were selected […]
WattStopper’s innovative LMLS-400 and LMLS-500 digital photosensors were selected by Building Operating Management (BOM) readers as recipients of BOM’s 2012 Top Products Awards. The photosensors are part of WattStopper’s Digital Lighting Management (DLM) product line, and are specifically designed for easy integration with occupancy sensors and other lighting controls. DLM maximizes energy savings and return […]
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.
