Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc. of Nashville, Tennessee, a member of the Panasonic Group, has added the Diversa® sensor line to its lighting control solutions. The Diversa line includes Power Packs, Switch Mount Sensors, Ceiling Mount Sensors, and Corner Wall Mount Sensors.
Diversa options include PIR sensing products and dual technology. Additional options include line-voltage (both 120-277VAC & 347VAC) and low-voltage products. The dual technology products combine proprietary ADI-Voice technology with standard PIR sensing to provide accurate occupancy detection compared to ultrasonic and basic PIR sensors as well as minimize energy consumption.
Spaces that need lighting intermittently such as offices, classrooms, warehouses, and washrooms can employ Diversa occupancy sensors can be used for energy-saving control strategies. Shutting off power to luminaires in unoccupied spaces enables Diversa sensors to enhance energy savings of already efficient systems. Additionally, the firm says that the sensors are easy for contractors to install, and can seamlessly integrate with other lighting control measures.
“A sustained focus on energy efficiency requires products for all buildings and project types, even as more integrated lighting solutions emerge,” said Wally Creer, director of product management for Universal. “To help facility managers meet their goals, Universal is committed to offering products which deliver market-leading performance with the convenience of easy installation and configuration flexibility.”
In most of the products of the Diversa line, photo sensors can inhibit turn-on when adequate natural light exists. Some products in the Diversa line also allow dimming outputs for daylight harvesting. These dimming outputs can enable dynamic control with varying degrees of natural light.
Diversa sensors may also be paired with LED drivers or Universal ballasts to improve component efficiency and help reduce energy consumption building-wide.
