  • LED Lighting Controls

    LED technology delivers high-quality lighting with significant energy savings, especially when paired with lighting controls. One of the biggest benefits of LED lighting is the ability to completely control the light when and where you need it the most. Indoor LED lighting controls and outdoor LED lighting controls allow an effective management of multiple applications. Whether it is a single office, an entire commercial building, or the parking lot lights, lighting controls help achieve energy savings, promote productivity, and allow you to gain valuable understanding of your facility operations.

    Whether you’re looking for network lighting controls or individual stand-alone lighting controls, XtraLight has an effective solution for you. Over the years XtraLight has partnered with some of the largest lighting control manufacturers to seamlessly integrate them into our fixtures during the manufacturing process. Because of the potential energy savings, maintenance savings and the ability to integrate with other building systems, you really can't afford to not look at what options you could be taking advantage of with new LED lighting paired with lighting controls.

    Lighting Control Strategies

    XtraLight LED Lighting Controls Office

    The days of people having to wander around buildings to shut off unused lights are coming to an end, now that more LED lighting is becoming interconnected over vast distances with intelligent lighting controls. When lighting controls are effectively paired with LED lighting, they can give you the strategies you are looking for to provide an effective ROI.

    Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing
    Utilizes motion detection to adjust lighting based on the occupancy of an area.
    Daylight Harvesting
    Dims light levels when daylight is available to light any given space.
    Astronomical Time Clock Scheduling
    Provides pre-programmed changes in a fixture’s light levels based on the date and time of day.
    Demand Response
    Automatically reduces lighting loads during peak electricity usage times.
    Plug Load Control
    Automatically turns off loads after occupants leave a space.
    High-End Trim/Tuning
    Can set the maximum light level based on mandated requirements for a particular space or environment.
    Personal Dimming Control
    Gives occupants the ability to adjust the light output to their comfort level.
    Building Management Systems (BMS)
    Allows LED lighting to be integrated and controlled along with heating, ventilation and HVAC systems through certain protocols.
    Energy Monitoring Platforms
    Helps identify energy usage in a building and help drive conservation efforts for more cost savings.

    Code Compliance

    Lighting control systems, when paired with XtraLight LED lighting, can help properties meet even the most stringent energy codes in the country. Why are energy codes important? Energy codes are minimum requirements for energy-efficient design and construction that are focused on global benefits such as reducing overall energy consumption, increasing cost savings and reducing harmful effects on the environment. Learning to incorporate lighting controls into the lighting design can meet technical requirements, deliver incentives back to the end user and provide quality lighting for a person’s well-being.

    Lighting Controls

    Here are a few codes, regulations and designations that have become more relevant across the United States:

    Title 24 - California
    The California Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards are designed to ensure new and existing buildings achieve energy efficiency and preserve outdoor and indoor environmental quality.

    International Energy Conservation Code®
    Most state energy codes are based upon the IECC with amendments. This comprehensive energy conservation code establishes minimum regulations for energy-efficient buildings using prescriptive and performance-related provisions.

    State & Local Codes
    State and local energy codes will save U.S. business owners an estimated $126 billion and 841 million metric tons of avoided carbon dioxide emissions through 2040. Some examples are California Title 24 and New York City Energy Conservation Code (NYCECC).

    ASHRAE 90.1
    International standard that provides minimum requirements for energy efficient designs for buildings except low-rise residential buildings. This standard mandates scheduled control of lighting in garages, parking lots, building facades and landscape lighting with specific light levels and schedules.

    U.S. Green Building Council - LEED Certification
    A rating system devised to evaluate the environmental performance of a building and encourage market transformation towards sustainable design.

    DesignLights Consortium (DLC)
    Promotes energy-efficient lighting products in collaboration with utilities and energy efficiency program members, manufacturers, lighting designers, and federal, state and local entities.

For specific questions regarding standalone controls, contact us for more information.

    Outdoor Standalone Controls

    Programmable Passive Infrared (PIR) Outdoor Sensor
    This sensor mounts in an outdoor lighting fixture and provides multi-level control based on motion and/or daylight contribution. It controls 0-10 VDC LED drivers and with a different lens is rated for wet and cold locations. All control parameters are adjustable via a wireless configuration tool capable of storing and transmitting sensor profiles.

    Button Style Photocell
    The outdoor photocell control senses ambient light conditions and automatically adjusts light levels from dusk to dawn. The photocell button can be integrated with outdoor fixtures that are utilized in parking lot lighting, decorative/area lighting or any type of security lighting. It also features instant turn-on and standard 5-10 second turn-off time delay. Unlike the PIR sensor, it doesn't control light levels based on motion.

    Twistlock Photocontrol Dimming Accessory
    The twistlock photocontrol dimming accessory is a field adjustable control solution for outdoor fixtures that doesn't require an existing network. It can be set to dim to multiple light levels based on a schedule or for all-night dimming. The priority algorithm adjusts for seasons as well as daylight savings time changes. This control accessory offers robust surge protection and can be installed at the time of manufacturing or out in the field.

    Indoor Standalone Controls

    High/Low Bay Passive Infrared (PIR) Indoor Occupancy Sensor
    The High Bay Passive Infrared (PIR) Occupancy Sensors provide automatic control of individual LED lighting fixtures in warehouses and other indoor high and low bay spaces. A hold-off daylighting feature keeps lighting off when the ambient light level is above the selected threshold. Time delay and light level settings can be adjusted via function-specific trimpots. The sensor can also be adjusted remotely using a wireless configuration tool.

    High/Low Bay Passive Infrared (PIR) Indoor Aisle Occupancy Sensor
    The High Bay Passive Infrared (PIR) Occupancy Sensors provide automatic control of individual LED lighting fixtures in warehouses and other indoor high and low bay spaces. The snap-on lens accessory is masked specifically for aisleway applications. A hold-off daylighting feature keeps lighting off when the ambient light level is above the selected threshold. Time delay and light level settings can be adjusted via function-specific trimpots. The sensor can also be adjusted remotely using a wireless configuration tool.

    Ultrasonic Occupancy Sensor With Multi-Level Dimming
    The Ultrasonic Occupancy Sensor utilizes high frequency (40kHz) ultrasonic technology to sense motion within a space and automatically turn lights on even when the sensor has no direct line of sight to occupants. After the area is vacated and the time delay has elapsed, the sensors automatically turn the lights off. Utrasonic detection operates by transmitting sound waves throughout an area and measuring the speed at which they return. Movement increases the return frequency, which triggers occupancy. This sensor can also provide bi-level lighting control, resulting in a significant energy savings for fixtures that are on 24-hours a day, seven days a week, while still providing enough light for safety requirements. This technology is most utilized for stairwells, corridors, parking garages, and other hard surfaced areas.
