California new Title 20 standards, which went into effect January 1, 2010, created new energy efficiency standards for 150-500W metal halide light fixtures used in indoor and outdoor applications. These fixtures may not be manufactured in the State of California unless they meet the new standards.
Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. combines convenience, exceptional energy savings, and ease of installation with the new Radio Powr Savr™ wireless daylight sensor.
Daylight harvesting’s value proposition is fairly simple: As daylight levels increase in a space, electric light levels can be automatically reduced to maintain a target task light level and save energy. All automatic daylight harvesting control systems need a device that can measure light levels and signal a controller to dim or switch the lights in response to daylight contribution. This device is called a photosensor. The photosensor is a small device that can include a light-sensitive photocell, input optics and an electronic circuit used to convert the photocell signal into an output control signal, all within a housing and with mounting hardware.

WattStopper has published a comprehensive catalog for its new Digital Lighting Management product line. Digital Lighting Management (DLM) is an all-digital suite of plug-together lighting controls that automatically configure to the most energy-efficient sequence of operation based on which system components are installed. 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.

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.
Watt Stopper/Legrand has introduced a self-calibrating daylighting controller that reduces time-consuming installation and setup. The LS-102 Daylighting Controller provides closed loop, single zone, on/off switching of most types of lighting in response to daylight contributions.
Philips Lighting Electronics has announced the introduction of its Philips branded LuxSense™ Lighting Control, an easy-to-use means of automatically achieving a comfortable level of illumination throughout the workday and driving energy savings by maximizing the incorporation of natural light levels.
Watt Stopper/Legrand has developed the LS-301 Dimming Photosensor, carefully combining features for optimal performance and ease of installation and use. At the heart of the device is the groundbreaking sliding setpoint control algorithm pioneered by Watt Stopper/Legrand. The LS-301 also employs a handheld setup remote to facilitate quick and convenient commissioning.
Watt Stopper/Legrand introduces the new fixture-mounted FD-301 dimming photosensor. Lighting fixture manufacturers can easily integrate the FD-301 during production so fixtures arrive at the jobsite with the control pre-wired, adding value and saving contractors’ time. Commissioning, too, is fast and simple. Once operational, the photosensor provides precise and reliable energy-saving control, dimming 0-10 VDC ballasts in response to available daylight. Integrating the device into the fixture also improves aesthetics, reducing the number of items on the ceiling.
