Lutron Electronics has announced the addition of the Twist-Lock Radio Daylight Module to its Limelight product family. The module allows control of pole-style luminaires across a variety of manufacturers, in new or retrofit applications. The Twist-Lock Module works with any 0-10V electronic LED driver to enhance outdoor fixtures with smart control enabling daylighting, scheduling, remote monitoring and more.
Simple Plug-and-Twist Smart Control
The module can be specified into luminaires manufactured with standard ANSI 3-, 5-, or 7-pin C136.41 receptacles. Once installed, the built-in connections enable power to the device, daylight sensing, switching, and 0-10V dimming without any additional wiring, and with no need to install anything else within the fixture. When AC (120/277V) power is applied, the factory default daylight setting will turn the fixture OFF when there is sufficient daylight available, even before a fixture is added to a Limelight system.
Lutron Enterprise Vue Software also enables you to connect your outdoor lighting to your indoor systems using Lutron control solutions. This allows for management of all the lights inside and outside your facility from one interface.
Expands the Limelight Product Offering and Improves Performance
Limelight is a networked, wireless lighting control solution for outdoor areas and industrial facilities, providing app-based lighting management, enhanced facility safety, and energy savings. Limelight leverages a variety of control strategies to deliver the right amount of light where, and when, it is needed. For example, in a dark parking lot Limelight responds to occupancy by turning on groups of lights to provide a feeling a safety and security that is seamless to a pedestrian or driver.
The Twist-Lock Module also simplifies retrofit – pole lights with traditional photocells, or a compatible socket without controls, can be upgraded to a networked control solution.
Added Benefits for Facility Managers
Limelight gives facility management teams the tools they need to maintain safe premises and minimize maintenance downtime by providing the ability to access and troubleshoot their systems in real time. The system also saves energy and supports dark-sky initiatives to make sure the lights are at the right level at the right time.
In the event a fixture loses power, or fails to perform as expected, the Limelight system triggers an email alert to the facilities team. This ensures the issue can be fixed efficiently to minimize downtime to the light, system disruption, and impact on the occupants.
Like all other Limelight controls, the Twist-Lock Module helps intelligently reduce power consumption and measures its results. Limelight can email monthly energy-savings reports to the facilities team to help evaluate the effectiveness of their control plan. The Twist-Lock Module can now be specified and quoted on your jobs.
