New dual voltage sensing switch offers quick, easy installation ideal for commercial retrofits and new construction
Coopersburg, PA (MAY 9, 2012) –Light control manufacturer Lutron Electronics is pleased to announce the new Maestro® Dual Voltage Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing Switch. The dual voltage sensor features advanced sensing technology and added functionality, making it easier than ever to incorporate occupancy/vacancy sensors into any building’s energy-savings strategy.
Priced at $49 (suggested list), the new, no neutral-required dual voltage sensing switch works with all bulb types, providing an ideal, affordable solution for commercial spaces. It works with either 120V or 277V applications and can be quickly and easily installed without the need for sophisticated programming or additional wiring.
Targeted to the commercial retrofit market, the new dual voltage sensing switch features innovative, proprietary sensing technology to ensure lights stay on when the room is occupied. The switch also incorporates ambient light detection, which senses light in the room and only turns lights on when needed.
The Maestro Dual Voltage Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing Switch offers numerous breakthroughs in this market, including:
Use with all bulb types, all load types and fans
Advanced XCT™ Sensing Technology
Ambient light detection
The Maestro Dual Voltage Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing Switch can also function in two modes:
A neutral-wire version of the sensor is available for applications that require this feature, such as new construction. A vacancy-only version is also available to meet California Title 24 requirements and New York City Local Law 48.
The Maestro Dual Voltage Occupancy/Vacancy Sensing Switch will be featured at Lightfair International and is on display at the tradeshow May 9 – 11 in Las Vegas, Nev. It will be available in June of 2012.
