Maximize Energy Savings with New Lutron Stairwell LED Fixture
Stairwell LED fixtures automatically adjust light output based on stairwell occupancy - saves up to 90% lighting electricity
Coopersburg, PA – Lighting control manufacturer Lutron Electronics is pleased to announce new LED models in its stairwell fixture family. The new stairwell LED fixture features an integral Lutron LED driver and control and communicates wirelessly with Lutron Radio Powr Savr™ wireless sensors to save more than 90% lighting electricity as a retrofit solution in most stairwell applications1.
All models in the Lutron stairwell fixture solution family utilize a Lutron digital dimmer, and either a digital fluorescent dimming ballast or LED driver. The fixtures are pre-programmed to occupied and unoccupied light levels and these presets can be easily adjusted by the user to meet specific project code requirements. The solution’s design features separate fixture and sensor components, which allow for the flexibility to determine appropriate occupancy sensor quantities, mounting configuration, and placement requirements based on the stairwell design.
The new LED fixture ships complete with an LED assembly, saving time and ensuring that the fixture is ready-to-install. The fixture includes a concealed Lutron wireless dimmer that receives a signal from Lutron’s Radio Powr Savr occupancy sensors via Lutron Clear Connect® RF technology to provide automatic, efficient lighting control.
Stairwell LED fixtures feature an architectural design, and a lamp life of more than 50,000 hours, resulting in lower maintenance costs than comparable fluorescent stairwell fixtures. Two-foot models are currently available and ready for shipment by the end of December 2012:
· 17W, 4000K Color Temperature, 1500 Lumens
· 30W, 4000K Color Temperature, 2400 Lumens
Through high-end trim and occupancy sensing, stairwell fixture solutions enable a building to save over 90% of lighting electricity usage in their stairwells. Added benefits include simple installation and flexible grouping of fixtures and wireless sensors.
Additionally, stairwell fixture solutions help buildings meet codes and standards (ASHRAE 90.1 2010 and IgCC), and also maximize energy savings in every stairwell by reducing lights to minimum levels when the stairwell is unoccupied, and immediately turning lights on when the stairwells become occupied. The fixtures are a retrofit solution that communicate seamlessly with all Lutron Energi TriPak® components.
