Philips Lighting Electronics North America announced their LuxSense Lighting Control designed to automatically achieve a comfortable level of illumination throughout the workday and drive energy savings by maximizing the incorporation of natural light levels.
Designed to control up to 20 fixtures, the LuxSense daylight sensor provides potential savings of up to 32% without sacrificing visual comfort. The pairing of LuxSense with a Philips Advance Mark 7 0-10V electronic dimming ballast will help optimize performance and sustainability; the sensor's combined use with energy-efficient fluorescent T8 lamps will further maximize performance and efficiency. Sporting a low-profile design to enhance flexibility, LuxSense possesses the ability to be incorporated directly into a fixture or alternatively clipped to a high-efficiency T5 lamp using a clip included in the package. Users need only adjust the device's rotating diaphragm to set the desired light level should they want a level different than the 45 footcandles preset on the device.
Ideal for use in small open offices, meeting rooms, and private office configurations, LuxSense fully supports sustainable design as measured by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ performance standards and represents an easy-to-use-and-install approach to achieving the benefits of controllable lighting.
High-performing and energy-efficient, Philips' LuxSense Lighting Control has truly simplified the art of lighting control, enabling commercial users to enjoy the personal comfort and productivity enhancements associated with controllable lighting while fully promoting sustainable design.
