Three new wireless dimming products from Leviton have been introduced as an expansion of the Lumina RF ecosystem of automation solutions for restaurants, retail stores, and office spaces. The 600 watt and 1000 watt in-wall dimmers and the 300 watt plug-in dimmer update the existing product line of wireless sensors, thermostats, 0-10V in-wall dimmers, light switches, plug-in appliance modules, and heavy-duty load controls for high-draw electronics including signage, parking lot lights, and motors.
The Lumina RF 600 watt dimmer, part number DL6HD-1BZ, is rated for 300 watt dimmable LED/CFL or 600 watt incandescent. The Lumina RF 1000 watt dimmer, part number DL1KD-1BZ, is rated for 450 watt dimmable LED/CFL or 1000 watt incandescent/Mark X. These in-wall devices are three-way enabled and utilize the DD00R matching remote to create three-way applications, including hallways and rooms with multiple entrances. The Lumina RF 300 watt plug-in module, part number DL3HL-1BW, is rated for 100 watt dimmable LED/CFL or 300 watt incandescent, where the control button with Locator LED also provides manual on/off control from the plug-in device directly.
The Lumina web-based installer utility, the enterprise-focused cloud, and user-hierarchy controlled apps are designed with both ease of installation and ease of use as primary considerations. Whether automating a single location or multitudes of connected properties, facility managers can create automation schedules or company holidays and apply the settings to all connected properties.
“The new forward phase dimmers provide advanced automated lighting control and allow the Lumina solution to extend to art galleries, restaurants, and small commercial properties that require precise dimming for an optimal environment and a calculated customer experience,” said Tom Leonard, vice president of marketing and product management for Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation. “Coupled with recent user experience enhancements to the Lumina Gateway and Lumina RF ecosystem, the mesh network enabled devices, including the dimmers, provide reliable automation based on times and tasks. Users can illuminate their spaces at a certain time every morning or night, and can also control lighting based on certain activities in an area using door contacts, motion sensors, or ceiling-mounted occupancy sensors.”
Enrollment, scheduling, and control of the dimmers are facilitated via the new web-based utility at http://lcs.leviton.com, allowing on-site commissioning and remote supervision from a computer or mobile device. Users can automate a property by first setting the time schedule and then assigning what happens inside the property at that time. Facility managers can enroll dimmers onto the network via the web tool by placing a dimmer into a room, naming the dimmer, and holding down the dimmer paddle for seven seconds. Automation is based on time and activity, whereby dimmers and switches plus other connected devices can activate upon motion, time, or holiday.
The Lumina Gateway and new Lumina RF wireless dimming devices are currently available, along with the new Leviton Cloud Services website and app. Enterprise corporations with multiple locations can benefit from the energy management solutions provided by the Lumina Gateway wireless energy management automation system, which includes lighting controls, thermostats, occupancy sensors, motion sensors, door contact sensors, heavy-duty load controls, and window coverings.
