Simple Energy Saving Solutions
Lighting dimmers & twilight switches
For the installer, it simplifies the ability to select a dimming function which is not dependant on the load technology the end-use will connect.The installer will also have the opportunity to adapt the product to suit via a dimming mode override feature. The EVN range of products supports the “green” technology initiative, as they can control “energy savings” loads. They also provide “energy-saving” dimming through use of a low standby consumption of only 0.2 W.
A typical energy saving application using DIN-Rail mounted dimmers.
'A large restaurant having two walls, made almost entirely from windows, has dimmable lighting installed to allow each dining area to be individually adjusted, by external pushbuttons, to the required light ambience. During daylight occupancy the areas nearest the windows are adjusted to use the benefit of natural daylight and hence save energy during this period.'
Lighting Level Detection
Light detection products operate by sensing ambient light and switching on or off against a preset lux level or time. Generally the lighting will be unnecessary during certain periods of the day and therefore energy will be saved when controlled by these devices.
The following table shows the range of products available, which can be used for effective lighting control in public areas such as shopping malls, street lighting and illuminated display areas.
