Introducing new Vive PowPak Phase Select dimming modules –the Vive Wireless solution is now even more complete, ideal for virtually any commercial project.

Coopersburg, PA (February 24, 2021) – Today, project design and installation demands greater flexibility and more resilient systems. New from Lutron Electronics, Vive PowPak Phase Select modules offer a remote mountable dimming option that can easily adapt to the various phase dimming needs of a project. Simplify jobs and reduce the number of models you need to keep on hand – with Vive Phase Select you need just one product for multiple applications.

Vive Phase Select modules feature Lutron PRO LED+ technology to dim smoothly down to 1% in either reverse- or forward-phase situations. Eliminate risk and worry when designing or installing fixture controls, and easily deliver code-compliant solutions. With the addition of this module, the Vive family includes a remote-mount dimmer ideal for applications such as restaurants, lobby spaces, conference rooms, lecture halls, and more. Vive is an even more complete, versatile product family.

  • PRO LED+ technology – Forward or Reverse Phase dimming down to 1% light level.
  • Simple to install – Mounts horizontally or vertically in a 4x4 junction box on either the wall or ceiling.
  • Simple startup – Set up right at the module, or through an app when using a Vive Wireless Hub, for ladder-less configuration.
  • Plenum rated – Complies with UL 2043 requirements and features configurable low/high-end trim for flicker-free dimming and energy savings.
