This system is optimized to meet energy codes for occupancy sensing and daylight harvesting, Eaton said.
“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 of 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.”
The system is factory-wired to the luminaires, switching on or off based on occupancy and dimming the light when enough daylight is available.
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, said Eaton.
When the system’s application demands more, it 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.
