Crestron demonstrates lighting & energy management solutions at Lightfair

April 23, 2013
Date Announced: 23 Apr 2013 New infiNET EX wireless dimmers, LED drivers, and DALI ballasts emphasize Crestron open standards based commercial lighting control solutionsFor commercial lighting specifiers, architects, and facility managers, LIGHTFAIR International 2013 promises to be a can't-miss event as Crestron unveils innovative new lighting and energy management solutions that create truly smart buildings. Attendees will experience interactive demonstrations of Crestron Integrated by Design smart building and room solutions featuring a complete line of wireless dimmers and switches, LED drivers, and DALI ballast solutions."Crestron solutions provide a single point of contact for all of an organization's lighting control needs, including system design, specification support, installation, programming and lifecycle support," said Mike Malone, Crestron VP of Commercial Lighting Controls. "By building on open standards like DALI, Ethernet, and BACnet, Crestron solutions offer customers competitive choices without locking them into costly proprietary systems that they will be paying a premium for in the years to come."Buildings and their control systems are getting more sophisticated and more integrated with occupants daily activities. Because of this, a Crestron solution based on open protocols seamlessly integrates various building systems, giving designers and building owners the confidence that their building is future-proofed to support emerging technologies."Gone are the days of throwing equipment away because technology advanced and the proprietary system could no longer be upgraded. Designing on open standards platforms liberates the design community to have buildings and lighting controls that adapt and enhance based on new technology, and never reach a dead-end," explains Malone. "Our mission has been to develop the broadest, most open, digitally controlled distributed lighting control solution that can be fully integrated with all connected systems in the building. By acting on valuable feedback from lighting designers and specifiers, we've been able to accomplish that in the solutions we are launching here at LIGHTFAIR."A lineup of integrated lighting control products Crestron will showcase at LIGHTFAIR International 2013 includes:Crestron Green Light 50W and 100W Dimmable LED DriverThe new line of Crestron dimmable LED drivers provides high-power LED lighting. Available in 50w and 100w models, with single and dual-channel options, GLD-LED drivers offer superior smooth dimming technology using a combination of duty-cycle and current dimming. Operable between 120 and 277 volts, Crestron LED drivers are perfect for any building in any part of the world.Crestron Cameo® Wireless Dimmers and switches provide superior in-wall RF dimming of high voltage and electronic low voltage fixtures such as today's popular LED, incandescent, halogen and fluorescent light sources. Crestron ELV dimmers are available in 120V, 230V, 277V to support dimming of any fixture in any type of building anywhere in the world. Cameo CLW wireless dimmers and switches are perfect for new and retrofit applications, substantially reducing wiring and related labor costs of traditional wired systems.Battery-powered infiNET EX Occupancy SensorThe all-new infiNET EX Occupancy Sensor delivers a cost-effective solution to intelligently reduce energy costs and increase the energy efficiency of lighting and environmental systems throughout a building. Featuring a low-profile battery-powered form factor and adjustable sensitivity, it is ideal for smaller areas up to 500 square feet to detect when a room is occupied. Passive infrared occupancy sensing technology achieves dependable motion detection with greater immunity to false triggers.The Crestron Green Light Power Pack communicates with photocells, occupancy sensors, and control stations to automatically control lighting in any room. The entire Power Pack family provides cost-effective and versatile lighting control for classrooms, small offices, and open-plan offices. Ideal for new construction and retrofitting existing buildings, Power Packs are designed to install and commission quickly and easily or work as a stand-alone lighting controller. The Green Light Power Pack connects to a central control system, making it an integral part of a building's energy management system.Crestron Fusion EM Energy Management Software enables staff to measure, monitor, manage, and control lighting, HVAC systems, and energy usage in every room of every building, all from one convenient interface. Automate daily functions and schedule events such as temperature, shades and lighting level set points, demand response settings, global lighting and climate control for unoccupied spaces, and more. Integrate with building management systems and monitor historical and real-time energy usage from a centralized dashboard.The Crestron Green Light 3-lamp DALI Ballast is the latest addition to the 1- and 2-lamp ballast line, making it the most complete DALI ballast solution on the market. Using less than 0.3 watts in idle mode, Crestron DALI ballasts are the most energy efficient solution available. With one, two, and three lamp configurations available, Crestron ballasts support dimming for a wide range of linear fluorescent lamps that are ideal for any fixture in any part of the world.Visit Crestron at booth #545 at LIGHTFAIR International, April 23-25, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA.As the world's largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, LIGHTFAIR International blends continuing education courses with innovative products ranging from high-end design to cutting-edge technology.
