Lightfair International 2011: World Leader Lutron Electronics Co., Inc. to Feature New High-Efficacy Lighting Controls at Booth # 501
Philadelphia, PA —Lutron Electronics Co., Inc., the world leader in the design and manufacture of light control and shading solutions, will showcase its comprehensive lineup of high-efficacy light control solutions at Lightfair International 2011, booth # 501.
High-Efficacy Lighting Controls
Lighting accounts for up to 38 percent of the electric energy usage in commercial buildings, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. This represents a huge opportunity to reduce both energy consumption and costs by combining high-efficacy light sources with lighting controls. This combination maximizes energy savings.
The annual Lightfair Trade Show & Conference takes place this year May 17th – 19th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
NEW Energi TriPakTM—Lutron is proud to announce a cost-effective, wireless lighting control system for single-spaces. The Energi TriPak is an energy-saving solution comprised of load controllers that communicate via Lutron Clear Connect™ RF technology to Radio Powr Savr® occupancy/vacancy and daylight sensors and Pico® wireless controls. The Energi TriPak load controller offerings include: Maestro Wireless® dimmers and switches, PowPak® plug-in modules, and new PowPak junction box mounted devices. This system was designed for classrooms, private offices and other single space applications where simple installation without the need for additional wiring is desired.
NEW products in the NEW Energi TriPak system
NEW PowPak® Load Controllers—Lutron is pleased to introduce a new line of wireless junction box mounted devices for single spaces. The PowPak load controllers are available in three control options: dimming with EcoSystem®, line-voltage switching with Softswitch®, and low-voltage contact closure output. The load controllers communicate wirelessly with Radio Powr Savr sensors and Pico wireless controls, allowing for occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, and local control without the need for additional wires. With easy installation and simple button-press programming, these solutions are ideal for retrofit projects.
NEW Radio Powr Savr® Occupancy/Vacancy Sensor—Lutron has enhanced the aesthetics of our award-winning Radio Powr Savr ceiling-mount sensor. The new version of the wireless sensor possesses a smaller form factor and the ability to be recess mounted (mounting bracket sold separately). The sensor diameter measures just 3.57’’, a reduction of nearly a 0.5” from the original version. The updated aesthetic assists in minimizing the visual impact of the sensor.
