Power management company Eaton announces that its Metalux Encounter™ and SkyRidge™ light-emitting diode (LED) luminaire families are now available with an optional integrated sensor control system, optimized to meet energy codes for occupancy sensing and daylight harvesting. The system is one of the most cost-effective solutions, saving installation time and money in enclosed smaller ambient spaces.
“The luminaire-integrated sensor control system reduces the design time and complexity of meeting energy codes for both lighting and controls,” said Mark Eubanks, president, Eaton’s Cooper Lighting Division. “The sensor system is designed to guarantee occupancy and daylight harvesting coverage from within the footprint of Metalux ambient luminaires, so the lighting design is the control design. The system achieves the lowest installed cost in small spaces compared to traditional control products.”
Designed to meet today’s energy code demands, the Metalux Encounter and SkyRidge luminaires with the integrated sensor system are ideal for new construction or retrofits in enclosed rooms with one to six luminaires, where both occupancy detection and daylight harvesting control are required. The innovative control system is factory-wired to the luminaires, switching on or off based on occupancy and dimming the light when enough daylight is available.
When compared to the cost of furnishing and installing traditional occupancy and daylight sensors, in addition to the cost of the luminaire, installing the Metalux integrated-sensor fixtures require only a single product to mount and a single electrical connection to make – no additional wiring or special installation requirements – saving customers time and money on the total installation cost.
The sensor system offers out-of-the-box operation using thoughtful default settings, but when the application demands more, the sensor system has the option to make changes to one or more fixtures using a remote control. The remote allows changes to the default settings for occupancy, target light level, preset lighting levels and more.
