Efficient Lights are Just the Beginning
You may have taken the first steps in reducing lighting costs, and now is the time to advance to greater savings. There has been some significant improvement in technology that yields high user satisfaction and increased savings.
provides smooth, flicker-free dimming fluorescents, reduced harmonics, and improved sensors all contribute to making lighting controls more flexible and effective. Individual controls enable users to achieve perfect lighting for every task. This increases workplace comfort, satisfaction and productivity.
There are many building spaces that remain unoccupied with the lights on for 40% to 70% of daily operating hours, wasting energy and money. Adding occupancy sensors saves the wasted energy being spent lighting vacant rooms. Dimming technology can be utilized to dim vacant rooms rather than shutting them off in situations where entering a dark room is undesirable.
Lighting systems in buildings are designed to provide adequate light inside the building when it is dark outside, this means that during daylight hours there is an excess amount of light in the building. Lighting power consumption can be reduced by 20 – 40% by automatically dimming lights in proportion to the amount of natural sunlight reaching a specific area.
light sensors automatically adjust florescent lights gradually to maintain a consistent light level. The gradual dimming or increasing is undetected by the room’s occupants. The greatest savings occurs during the middle of the day, often coinciding with peak demand periods.
