Watt Stopper/Legrand’s new LI-ARP can reduce the cost and complexity of lighting control projects that use layered control strategies to maximize energy savings. Previously, incorporating additional controls into a panel-based system meant long added wiring runs and wasted circuit capacity. The LI-ARP moves relays into the areas they control to eliminate these problems, providing a room control solution that is unique to Watt Stopper/Legrand. Now greener designs, including LEED-certified designs, are easier and more cost effective to implement.
Watt Stopper/Legrand premieres the RT Series Time Switches as part of its new line of energy saving residential lighting controls to offer homeowners a full range of green, attractive and reliable control solutions. The timers replace standard light switches and can control either lighting or motor loads such as fans. Users turn the switch on by pressing the ON/OFF button. The switch turns the load off at the end of the timer’s countdown unless the user has chosen to turn it off earlier. The ON/OFF button is illuminated when the switch is off for easy location in darkened rooms.
The new Square D® Clipsal® Ethernet Network Interface Unit from Schneider Electric facilitates remote access to a Square D Clipsal C-Bus™ lighting control network for commercial building managers and system installers and integrators, through the convenience of the nearest Ethernet connection. High-speed control and monitoring of a network through TCP/IP protocols used in computer networks means system configuration and alterations are a seamless process.
Watt Stopper/Legrand has developed a line of card key switches that give hospitality facilities a simple way to save energy and comply with the current IECC and ASHRAE/IESNA codes which require that hotel guestrooms have a master switch at the entrance of every room. These card key switches are ideal for hotels, motels, boardinghouses and other similar buildings.
Watt Stopper/Legrand announces the ELCU-100 Emergency Lighting Control Unit, bringing energy savings to emergency lighting. Emergency lighting typically burns 24/7, and with recent changes to state and local building codes in major metropolitan areas, specifiers are having to devote more watts per square foot to emergency lighting than ever before.
This new product allows building owners and operators to leverage the energy saving benefits of control devices such as occupancy sensors and time scheduled systems by having these devices control emergency lighting in tandem with non-emergency lighting. They can also be assured of enhanced response from the emergency lighting, because the ELCU-100 provides control at the branch circuit level and it will force emergency lighting on even if normal power is interrupted in only part of the building.
Leviton has expanded its miniZ Intelligent Daylight Management System offering to include a new Dual Room miniZ™. The Dual Room miniZ combines occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting and flexible lighting control functionality in a single, compact package that provides control functionality for two individual rooms.
Watt Stopper/Legrand has unveiled its new industry exclusive HDR Heavy Duty Relay, a rigorously engineered panel relay that exceeds the new UL508 requirements for controlling electronic ballast lighting loads.
Watt Stopper/Legrand introduces the Automation Appliance, a web-based user interface for the Lighting Integrator lighting control panel.
Watt Stopper/Legrand announces the addition of a native BACnet option to its lighting control panel product line, Lighting Integrator. The BACnet option enables native level integration of lighting control with a BACnet-based building automation system.
Leviton’s new miniZ Intelligent Daylight Management System combines occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting and flexible lighting control functionality in a single, compact, easy-to-install package. A self-contained, self-configuring daylight harvesting system that provides easy installation and simplified set up, miniZ meets a wide variety of commercial lighting needs, from basic switching to multi-zone daylight harvesting.
