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.
While today’s occupancy sensors offer robust features, proven utility and reliability, they remain application-sensitive devices, which requires a properly educated designer and installer for the controls to be effective. The right occupancy sensor must be selected, it must be properly located and installed, and it must be field-calibrated.
In this article, we will examine the seven steps of the effective application of occupancy sensors.
The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) has announced the availability of EE201: Daylight Harvesting Control, a new course added to its popular Education Express program. Residing at the Association’s website www.aboutlightingcontrols.org, Education Express provides in-depth education about lighting controls and controllable ballast technology, application, system design and commissioning.
Leviton Manufacturing Company offers its technologically-sophisticated Vizia™ Collection of lighting and fan speed controls. The Collection integrates digital engineering, intuitive operation, and a stylish form factor that is compatible with Leviton’s legendary Decora® devices and screwless snap-on wallplates.
Advance introduces its exclusive new Ballast Checker, an easy-to-use hand-held device that quickly identifies a ballast’s technology type for use in confirming ballast status and pinpointing lighting upgrade opportunities.
The Sivoia QED™ (Quiet Electronic Drive) controllable shade system by Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. now provides the ability to group multiple roller shade panels on one electronic drive unit for enhanced control and greater efficiency.
Lutron Electronics Co., Inc has expanded its line of popular EcoSystem fluorescent dimming ballasts with the introduction of EcoSystem™ T5 HE (High Efficiency) ballast for use with the EcoSystem fluorescent lighting control solution. The new line of low-profile T5 dimming ballasts provides the same revolutionary digital fluorescent lighting control technology as the current “G” can ballast, in a smaller [18″ (457mm) x 1.18″ (30mm) x 1.0″ (25mm)] profile. EcoSystem solutions now extend to the complete line of high-efficiency T5HE dimming solutions for all one- and two-lamp lengths and voltages, including two-, three- and four-foot lamps in both 120v and 277v.
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.
NEMA’s Lighting Systems Division has launched a new website for owners, specifiers, installers, and sellers of lighting systems. The new website, lightingtaxdeduction.org, provides comprehensive education and implementation information about lighting upgrades covered by the commercial buildings tax deduction provision of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct).
Leviton’s new OSFHB-ITW High Bay Occupancy Sensor employs passive infrared technology for use in warehouses, manufacturing plants and other facilities with high ceilings and provides local occupancy control and minimizes false triggering. The OSFHB-ITW is specifically designed for high mounted areas and installs directly to an industrial fluorescent luminaire or an electrical junction box. It is a self-contained sensor and relay that turns individual light fixtures ON or OFF based on occupancy in the detection zone. The specially designed lens provides reliable coverage up to 40 feet mounting heights. The OSFHB-ITW provides a trouble-free “install and forget” solution for high bay lighting control.
