Watt Stopper/Legrand’s Digital Lighting Management (DLM) is an all-digital suite of plug-together lighting controls that automatically configures to the most energy efficient sequence of operation based on components in the system. The result is that DLM meets and exceeds energy code requirements, saves more energy than conventional controls, and provides an unprecedented return on investment for both new construction and retrofit projects.
-Plug n’ GoTM results in fast, easy and error-free installation
-First system to automatically configure for most energy efficient operation
-Meets and exceeds energy code requirements for faster payback
With DLM, each room or space in a building has its own control network where you simply connect room controllers, occupancy sensors, switches and photocells as needed. Plug n’ Go technology (patent pending) then recognizes what is connected and automatically configures the space to the most energy efficient operation.
For example, when room controllers are connected only to occupancy sensors, they default to automatic-on/off operation. If a switch is added, operation changes to manual-on/automatic-off. When a dual-relay room controller and switches are connected, the system defaults to bi-level automatic-on (auto-on to 50%)/automatic-off operation, which has been shown to provide 52% greater savings than occupancy sensors alone.
DLM uses Cat 5e RJ45 cables to connect the room components. This eliminates the majority of labor associated with interpreting wiring diagrams, setting DIP switches, and terminating low voltage wires. This speeds up installation and eliminates the potential for wiring errors.
A workspace’s plug loads, largely left uncontrolled, consume 12-14% of electricity in commercial buildings. DLM can provide plug load control, allowing building owners to further leverage code-compliant occupancy sensors and realize greater savings.
