Committed to saving energy, Lutron will announce new products and
offer educational sessions at 2013 LIGHTFAIR International
Coopersburg, PA (March 27, 2013) – More than 25,000 lighting industry professionals are expected to see new energy-saving solutions from lighting control pioneer Lutron Electronics in booth 1345 at LIGHTFAIR International, being held April 23-25 in Philadelphia, less than 50 miles from Lutron’s world headquarters.
The Lutron booth will allow visitors to “Experience the Impact of Lutron Controls” with a showcase of new products and software, including:
1. Enhancements to its Hyperion® solar adaptive shading solution- Hyperion, Lutron’s automated shading system that adjusts Sivoia® QS shades throughout the day based on the sun’s position, now has two new enhancements
a. the new QP4 hub, which combines a shade power panel and a Lutron Quantum® processor into one component, reducing cost and installation time
b. a new sensor that compensates for clouds and shadows; it allows for maximum energy savings from daylight harvesting and reduces operating watts per square foot
2. Fire-rated shade fabrics from the Lutron Coulisse Collection- Lutron has teamed up with Coulisse, world-wide supplier of stylish window décor, on a collection of more than 700 high-fashion fabrics and materials for roller shades, honeycomb shades, innovative pleated fabrics and a variety of materials for Venetian blinds. Two new, fire-rated, shade fabrics (Eko and Met) will be introduced for use in commercial spaces.
3. The Maestro® occupancy sensor C•L™ dimmer- the newest occupancy/vacancy sensor gives users the combined convenience of Lutron’s Maestro sensor paired with the energy savings of its C•L dimmer, and can be used with dimmable CFLs, dimmable LEDs, halogens and incandescents.
“There’s never been a more exciting time in the lighting industry than right now,” said Eric Lind, vice-president, specification sales at Lutron. “We’re looking forward to showing Lightfair attendees how to integrate the newest Lutron controls into their projects to meet building codes, save energy and delight their clients.”
