TOTAL LIGHT CONTROL FOR LUTRON AT ISE

Integrated Systems Europe 06 Brussels Expo, 1-3 Feb 06, Stand E25 Lutron Electronics Co. Inc., the world leader in lighting control, is introducing a range of lighting control enhancements and new technologies at ISE expo this year.

Alongside Roller 64, a sophisticated electronic drive for controlling roller blinds, Lutron will be exhibiting for the first time its Web Keypad, that allows HomeWorks to interface via the web to activate scenes and control lights and blinds. In addition, Lutron will be showcasing a new range of affordable domestic dimming solutions and LCP 128, a self -contained lighting control system ideal for use in commercial applications such as restaurants and retail areas.


Roller 64
Lutron's Sivoia QED technology offers users complete control of natural light for both residential and commercial applications. Sivoia QED is the ultimate in motorised roller blind technology, providing elegance, convenience and versatility. The innovative design features a near silent electronic drive (44 dBA at three feet), minimal light gaps around the roller blind, simple installation, and a flexible design that can work in virtually any installation. Roller 64 has the added advantage of fitting into headboxes as small as 89mm x 89mm and has a sleek roller tube that's just 41mm in diameter.
Web Keypad
HomeWorks systems now have an interface via the web to activate scenes and control lights and blinds - a Web Keypad. Web keypads allow a user to control the system from any web browser, such as their office PC or a web tablet. The web server for these Web Keypads is built into the processor, so no extra hardware is needed! For added security, you can create login names for the web keypads. Programming is quick and easy, and any physical keypad can easily be web -enabled so no duplicate programming is needed. Web Keypads are also Microsoft Media Center compatible.

LCP 128
Lutron's LCP128 self -contained lighting control system is quick to install and incorporates the control of all lighting circuits, switched and dimmed, interior and exterior, into one simple operating system. Ideal for use in commercial applications such as restaurants and retail areas, where disruption of business needs to be kept to a minimum, the LCP128 can be installed and programmed on -site by an electrical engineer.

Consumer Dimming Range
There are five products in Lutron's new consumer dimming range, including Lyneo, Lutron's basic slide dimmer and Solina a discrete floor and table lamp dimmer which can fade lamps on and off with a simple tap - while memorising the last light level set. The range also includes Rania and Rania IR, which are multi -location dimmers that are both operated by the touch of a button and when switched back on, the dimmer memorises the last lighting level chosen. Universal dimming options are also available on the Rania range that auto -sense the load type - both low voltage and incandescent sources.

David Danby, sales director Northern Europe, comments: "The addition of new technologies such as Web Keypads, Roller 64 and the consumer dimming range shows that we are continuing to offer the ultimate in lighting control packages to end users. This reflects Lutron's ongoing commitment to product design innovation to meet ever developing consumer requirements".
