Hubbell’s wiSCAPE External Fixture Module

hubbellHubbell Building Automation’s wiSCAPE™ External Fixture Module lighting control device allows any outdoor light fixture to be managed, monitored and metered.

The External Fixture Module provides ON/OFF control and 0-10V dimming output compatible with all 2-wire dimming drivers and ballasts. A built-in luxmeter allows for daylight harvesting and a low-voltage input is available for motion sensor, switch or photocell control.

Featuring universal voltage input, the External Fixture Module supports 110-480V applications making it ideal for LED luminaires, traditional HID fixtures and induction lighting.

The External Fixture Module drastically simplifies outdoor lighting control. The module connects directly to the luminaire through ANSI 7-pin or 5-pin twist-lock receptacles, making retrofits simple and efficient. No control wiring is required for configuration, making commissioning quick and economical.

As part of a wiSCAPE network, the device is easily managed through wiSCAPE View™, which is an intuitive software platform that can configure, manage, monitor and meter a wiSCAPE lighting control system.

Acuity Brands Shines Light on Hospital Patient Rooms with New Entera™ LED Lighting Platform

acuityAcuity Brands, Inc. has introduced the Entera™ system from Healthcare Lighting®, a hospital lighting platform that marries LED illumination with integral controls to help enable the best in patient care. The multi-functional system can provide the appropriate level of energy-efficient lighting, at any time of the day.

Designed specifically for ambient and task lighting requirements in patient rooms, the Entera platform offers recessed (2×2, 2×4) and wall sconce options, each providing features and amenities that may enhance both hospital staff functionality and patient care/comfort.

In Caregiver Exam mode, Entera luminaires provide precision optics that direct up to 75 footcandles on the bed surface, along with the color accuracy to allow for effective observation. Patient/Guest Ambient mode uses four preset light levels (20, 50, 80 and 100 percent) that can be controlled from the patients’ beds in order for them to configure their own environments. Flicker-free, continuous dimming down to 1 percent is also available– which can bolster energy efficiency. Lastly, Nighttime mode provides low ambient light levels comfortable for sleeping, while enabling nurses and staff to move about or safely perform examinations.

The ambient section of Entera luminaires is driven by nLight®, a lighting control technology enabling plug-n-play networking with other nLight control devices, such as occupancy sensors, photocells and wall stations. nLight technology cost-effectively integrates time-based, daylight-based, sensor-based, and manual lighting controls. Designed to function standalone in an individual zone or networked together across an entire hospital, nLIGHT is an easy-to-use, easy-to-install system that can cut energy consumption and enhance occupant convenience.

Universal Announces New Everline Surge Protectors

Universal Lighting Technologies has added to its family of EVERLINE products with the new EVERLINE Surge Protectors, capable of managing a surge of up to 20kV.

Inserted between line voltage and the driver/module or ballast/lamp system, EVERLINE Surge Protectors provide system-wide protection, eliminating the need for internal fixture components that are rated to handle large spikes in input voltage.

While fixture components are designed to handle variations in input power, being connected directly to the main power lines introduces complications when it comes to power surges. Because lightning strikes, switching and other events can be far more severe directly on the power lines, these components need additional protection. The new EVERLINE Surge Protectors protect more sensitive components against line surges and transients.

EVERLINE Surge Protectors are C3 surge location rated, providing surge protection up to 20kV and are available for 277V and 480V applications.

WattStopper Extends Occupancy Sensor Control to Plug Loads for Energy Savings and Code Compliance

WattStopper recently introduced its Wireless Receptacle Controls (WRC) series.

Extending occupancy-based lighting control to plug loads, the WRC line of products helps lighting control professionals meet new ASHRAE 90.1 and California Title 24 requirements to switch off selected receptacles. The solution also minimizes costs for retrofits and new construction as it utilizes RF technology and works with existing line voltage wiring.

The WRC solution facilitates Auto-On/Auto-Off occupancy-based control of plug loads and includes an RF Transmitter and intelligent RF Receptacles. The WRC line of products come in two versions: for use with stand-alone occupancy sensors, or with WattStopper’s Digital Lighting Management (DLM) platform.

Leviton Introduces Solutions for Connecting Wireless Access Points and IP Devices to Networks

Leviton recently introduced QuickPort® In-Wall and In-Ceiling Brackets, two unique solutions that support LAN connections for IP devices in environments where traditional wallplates are not practical. The brackets provide contractors and consultants with a location for a standards-based, testable permanent link for in-wall and in-ceiling connections to wireless access points, IP clocks, security cameras and other IP devices.

* QuickPort In-Wall and In-Ceiling Brackets protect installed cabling by providing a stable mounting and termination point for any category-rated QuickPort connector.

* In-Wall Brackets attach to standard electrical boxes, allowing the contractor to install and test the connection during initial installation. With the data connection recessed in the wall, the termination is protected throughout the rest of the construction process, and then during installation a short patch cord is used to make the final connection to the IP device.

* In-Ceiling Brackets attach to drop ceiling hardware, allowing the installed cabling to be tested and warranted, even in a plenum space. With cable lances and VELCRO® Brand tie downs to hold slack cable (also available from Leviton), contractors can perform the initial installation and permanent link testing, while allowing the flexibility to move the bracket to refine Wi-Fi coverage or WAN placement without needing to retest the link.

* Plenum-rated QuickPort® Surface-Mount Boxes attach to the In-Ceiling Brackets, which protect the termination and provide strain relief. This combination, when used with plenum-rated patch cords and cable, creates the ideal system for air-handling spaces above a drop ceiling.

* In-Ceiling Brackets support TIA-162-A cabling guidelines for wireless access points, and will support the upcoming TIA-862-B Intelligent Building Systems cabling standard.

The QuickPort Brackets, Surface-Mount Boxes and VELCRO Brand products are available through Leviton’s extensive distribution network. For assistance ordering plenum-rated patch cords, contact Leviton customer service. Go to the Leviton website for more on QuickPort® In-Wall and In-Ceiling Brackets.
