office lighting or automated building applications, both in new construction and retrofit projects.
For the individual office or conference room, installation can be streamlined by using a 2-wire power line dimmer; eliminating the need for additional control wires.
For more advanced systems, such as daylight harvesting or building automation applications, standard low voltage devices (0-10VDC, Class 1 or 2) are used to control the lighting system. In this daylight harvesting example, each lighting fixture (or fixture row) is controlled by its own photosensor; regulating the light output to compensate for changes in natural daylight. Depending upon the specific application, energy savings of up to 60% compared to fixed output T8 electronic systems can be realized.
All QUICKTRONIC POWERSENSE ballasts include a line voltage protection circuit, which protects the ballast in the event that line voltage is inadvertently applied to the low voltage control inputs.
