Douglas Lighting Controls®, a member of the Panasonic family of companies, introduced Tunable White Lighting control solutions to their Dialog® networked lighting controls. Designed for human-centric lighting applications, the system offers compatibility with dual-channel 0V to 10V Tunable-White fixtures, allowing users to control the fixtures manually or through a programmed schedule.
“At Douglas, we are dedicated to creating efficient solutions that promote ease of use, reduce energy consumption, and create a better end-user experience,” said Tony Lee, Product Manager for Douglas Lighting Controls. “The Tunable White Lighting control solution offers simple human-centric lighting control. This allows our clients to create light-level scenes or schedule specific intensity and Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) levels to optimize lighting for specific work environments.”
Tunable White fixtures and circadian rhythm programming are becoming common in hospital patient rooms and school classrooms. This capability matches the lighting levels with the body’s natural circadian rhythm to promote healing and create better learning environments. The Dialog controller can be programmed to simulate circadian rhythm by utilizing its internal timer and sequencing.
The Dialog system offers advanced digital lighting control solutions by connecting and controlling lights with relays, occupancy sensors, photo sensors, ballasts and/or drivers, and switch stations, and manages facility lighting requirements globally by area or by room. The flexibility and true scalability of the Dialog system allows it to be used in a variety of applications from small commercial buildings to large facilities.
