Next Lighting announces immediate availability of NextSense family of occupancy controls
The NEXTSense family of sensors and controls integrate seamlessly with NEXT Lighting’s NEXTDriver™ and NEXTLamp™ line of LED linear fluorescent replacement products. “Our products were already designed to work well with third-party 0-10V controls,” said Dr. Tom Katona, VP of Products. “Our customers were hungry for an easy to implement, cost-effective way to take advantage of the dimming capability of our products,” he continued.
The sensors provide dimming based on ambient light levels and occupancy in addition to basic on/off control. The NEXTSense line enhances the value proposition of NEXT Lighting’s LED retrofit products providing up to 70% energy savings compared with conventional fluorescent installations while maintaining safe, customized minimum light levels. The sensors are easy and flexible to install with mounting options directly to fixtures, in recessed ceilings, or in J-boxes. Dr. Katona concluded, “Given that most utilities provide incentives or rebates on sensors, we are excited about the value NEXTSense will bring to our offering.” With NEXTSense controls, customers can now realize the full benefit of linear LED lighting from an affordable retrofit solution.
