Lighting Controls and ASHRAE Standards


5/16/2018

Legrand, North & Central America announces new fixture integrated and high bay sensors feature advanced dimming and commissioning capabilities, which can be applied to new applications as the market shifts toward connected lighting and intelligent controls. These sensors are specifically engineered for luminaire manufacturers and are designed to be easy to incorporate into manufacturing and design processes.

A preview of new products to be unveiled this year includes:

Code compliant continuous dimming sensors (HPB-2x2 Series and FSP-2x2D Series) for highbay applications and retrofit projects: These economical, sensors help meet the latest ASHRAE 90.1, IECC, and California Title 24 standards which require automatic continuous dimming daylighting controls for LED lighting. These sensors can automatically adjust the lightings output for changing light levels through the day.

IP66-rated fixture integrated outdoor sensors with Bluetooth® commissioning (FSP-300 Series): With wireless access eliminating the need to use ladders or tools, these sensors can be easily set up, configured, and customized with the Legrand Sensor Configuration app. The app features an intuitive graphical user interface for easy and efficient commissioning. These code compliant sensors also include new security features that protect the device and users from unauthorized access in addition to field upgradable firmware.

DALI digital sensors (FDP-300 Series) are the first products being developed as part of Legrand’s partnership within Philips Lighting SR (System Ready) Certified Program. These sensors can be programmed locally using the Legrand Sensor Configuration app or remotely using 3rd party controllers with DALI 103 and 303 functionalities. These sensors enable connected intelligent lighting (when paired with a 3rd party controller) for many outdoor applications and ensure substantial savings in energy and maintenance costs.

As part of an outdoor lighting solution, these sensors will help facility engineers and lighting asset managers monitor, control, commission, and diagnose outdoor lighting infrastructure while maximizing safety and security and can work natively with connected Smart City systems. For applications that are more traditional, 0-10 volt models are also available.

“We’re unveiling a lineup of indoor and outdoor occupancy sensors that introduce new ways of empowering the OEM’s customer with complete control of their lighting assets via mobile commissioning and digital sensing,” said Daniel Stankovich, Product Manager for Wattstopper at Legrand. “In demanding environments that require high quality sensor designs, these fixture sensors are meeting all the requirements of maximizing energy efficiency, meeting code, and providing savings in operating costs.”
