Leviton, a leading global manufacturer of electrical devices, today announced its GreenMAX Relay Control Panels were chosen by Consulting-Specifying Engineer (CSE) magazine as the Best Product of the Year for lighting control products.
GreenMAX establishes a new standard for energy efficient lighting management. The GreenMAX family of relay control panels affords an industry-leading short circuit current rating (SCCR) of 25,000 Amps (at 277 VAC) for maximum service life, robust latching modules for incandescent and fluorescent loads, integrated dimming and switching capabilities along with daylighting – all in one energy-smart, cost-effective lighting management solution.
CSE judges, comprised of professional engineers who regularly design and specify HVAC, electrical, fire protection and plumbing systems, selected up to 5 finalists in each of 10 categories, and subscribers determined their ranking as gold, silver or bronze. Leviton was awarded the prestigious bronze level ranking.
“It is truly an honor that Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine and their subscribers have chosen our GreenMAX products as the Bronze award winner in the lighting control products category this year,” said Richard Westfall, Vice President and General Manager for Leviton’s Lighting & Energy Solutions division. “Energy conservation has never been more important, from both an environmental and economic perspective. This award illustrates our commitment to providing innovative energy management solutions and maintaining a leadership position in this market among members of the specification community.”
As a fully-integrated system, GreenMAX relay controls are ideal for installation in a wide range of commercial environments, including new construction and retrofit environments where centralized lighting control is needed. The system includes: relay cabinets and inserts, command modules, a handheld display unit (HDU), power supplies, relays and fully digital switches that can be programmed using the HDU.
GreenMAX supports a wide variety of native network protocols, including BACnet/IP, Ethernet and LumaCAN, streamlining set up and configuration. Network connections are made using RJ45 connectors to standard CAT6 cabling. Each relay panel can control up to 32,000 smart relays. Low-voltage inputs such as occupancy sensors, photocells, contact closures, and switches connect to the system using an on-board Low-Voltage Input Card or can connect remotely in the Remote Input Cabinet for versatility in set up.
