SENSOR SWITCH The nLight lighting control system integrates time-based and sensor-based controls. The system networks sensors, power packs, photocells and wall switches with decentralized intelligence. The system is controlled via local LCD gateways or Web-based software. Numerous different settings and operational modes can be configured for a zone or group of zones. Real-time data available includes occupancy status, remaining time delay and current dim level.
LITHONIA LIGHTING The RT5R Relight luminaire retrofits parabolic systems, allowing one-to-one fixture replacements. The volumetric lighting fixture reduces energy consumption by up to 60 percent in comparison to four-lamp T12 fixtures, according to the company. Available in two-lamp 2-by-2-foot or 2-by-4-foot fixtures with step-dim or full-range control.
ILUMISYS The MK1 LED tube directly replaces standard T8 and T12 fluorescent tubes without modifications to the fixtures or ballasts. The lamp is available in color temperatures ranging from 3,500 K to 5,000?K, with a variety of optical diffusion options. Runs directly from 110 VAC or other building line currents as specified.
MEGAMAN The Dimmerable series of CFL lamps is compatible with most electronic and digital dimmers for incandescent and halogen lamps, with a linear dimming range between 10 and 100 percent. Uses mercury in amalgam, with less than 2 mg of mercury per lamp, according to the company. Lamp is wrapped in silicone to shield against shattered glass.
WATT STOPPER The fixture-mounted FD-301 dimming photosensor for 0-10 VDC ballasts can be pre-wired into the lighting fixture during production. The spectral response of the photodiode matches the photopic curve. Commissioning adjustments are made using a handheld remote. An optional occupant remote control permits the automatic light level to be overridden.
MAXLITE The Faux Can flush-mounted flat CFL luminaire gives the appearance of a recessed downlight. Behind a frosted diffuser, the electronic ballast is located within the trim and has a GU-24 base on the back. The flat disk lamp has a 10,000-hour life. Dimmable models available.
OSRAM SYLVANIA PowerSHED is a high-efficiency, instant-start bi-level ballast with a built-in power line carrier (PLC) signal receiver for automated dimming response. Supporting two- or three-lamp fixtures, it will shed up to 30 percent of its load. The PLC injector system is adaptable to many control methods including manual switching and AC relays. Has a .87 ballast factor.
ALANOD ALUMINUM Miro-Silver for light-pipes has a 98 percent total light reflectivity and transmits pure white light, with no color shift even after multiple reflections, according to the company. It is a solid reflective material, not a laminated polymer sheet, will not fade or lose reflectivity, and is electrostatically neutral.
FULL SPECTRUM SOLUTIONS The bi-level garage fixture in the Everlast Induction lighting line operates at 50 percent power until a sensor is triggered. The fixture then switches to 100 percent illumination. Resistant to shock and vibration, the fixture has a 100,000-hour lamp life and 60,000-hour ballast life, with a CRI of 90.
ACRALIGHT NanoStar skylights use a translucent aerogel insulation that provides four times the R-value over standard double-dome skylights, according to the company. The gel is UV stable, resists moisture, mold and yellowing, and is non-combustible. The metal-framed skylights with Nanogel-filled polycarbonate panels create a soft, evenly-diffused light.
CARLISLE SYNTEC The Drylight skylight has fully encapsulated glazing, providing a bond between the frame and the dome to reduce leakage. It has a thermoplastic retainer frame which is non-conductive. Available in curb and curb-mountable designs with roofing membrane flashing standard in 4-by-4-foot, 4-by-8-foot, and 5-by-6-foot units and three glazing options.
AMERLUX Evoke Trimless downlights with 2.9-inch round or square apertures use 20-watt miniature metal halide lamps and ballasts. The 3/16-inch flanged reflector trim sits flush with the ceiling line, for minimal edge detail. A perforated plaster ring gets mounted to the aperture for the application of drywall compound for a clean installation look in the ceiling.
ELECTRONIC THEATRE CONTROLS The Paradigm lighting control system provides energy-management tools that capitalize on daylight-harvesting, occupancy sensing and time schedules, combined with a library of lighting fixtures and networking to speak fluently to different devices from different manufacturers over the same control system.
LUTRON The Quantum light and energy management system can configure, monitor, analyze, and report on the data it collects. The product manages the company’s fluorescent lighting control system and shading system from a single dedicated PC. The PC stores data about the system, such as light levels, power consumption, and sensor status, and runs the fixture management software.
