Lighting Your Way with Six Smart Strategies
Six Smart Strategies in our Revolutionary Energy Management System
How smart is our revolutionary lighting control and energy management system? Really, really smart.
EMS™ is the only system that seamlessly integrates and simultaneously deploys six energy management strategies on a facility-wide basis. While each lighting energy management system works interdependently, the effect is cumulative in helping you realize remarkable energy savings.
Smart Time Scheduling
In areas of a building where occupancy sensor control is not appropriate, time scheduled switching or dimming of lights can be employed for zones as small as a room or even individual light fixture.
Through the use of photo sensors, light levels are automatically adjusted to take into account ambient natural sunlight entering the building. Appropriate light levels are maintained and artificial lighting is dimmed when necessary.
Setting default (maximum) light levels to suit the particular task or use of a workspace in order to eliminate over lighting.
Through the use of occupancy sensors, lights are automatically turned on or off or dimmed based on occupancy detection.
Through the Personal Control Software, individuals can control (dim) the light levels in their workspace to suit their personal preferences from their desktop PC.
Variable Load Shedding
The automatic reduction of electrical demand in a building by shedding lighting loads dynamically (through dimming or switching) either to shave peak demand or to respond to a utility price or demand response signal. Load shedding can be done selectively by lowest priority areas first.
Up to 50 - 75%
Combined Energy Savings
Potential cumulative savings from above strategies.
