HAI by Leviton Device Wins CustomRetailer's EXC!TE Award

Company's Omni-Bus 900W Dimmer DIN Rail controls 110-220V lighting loads

Melville, New York, September 4, 2012 - HAI by Leviton announced today that its Omni-Bus 900W Dimmer DIN Rail has been named a winner for CustomRetailer magazine's EXC!TE Awards. The 900W Dimmer DIN Rail will be honored among the best products at CEDIA EXPO 2012 on Thursday, September 6, in Indianapolis, Ind.


The Omni-Bus 900W Dimmer DIN Rail - HAI part number 110A00-2 - controls 110-220V incandescent, halogen, low-voltage electronic transformers and low voltage magnetic transformers. It includes a jumper to select leading or trailing edge dimming to control rope lighting, track lighting and LED lighting. The key benefits to an Omni-Bus lighting network include elegant, multi-button programmable wall switches while eliminating the expense of in-wall high voltage wiring to multi-way switches. Whereas competing central lighting systems require home runs to a single central cabinet, modular Omni-Bus components can be located where needed to save wiring and installation costs.

"HAI by Leviton is proud to receive recognition for the flexible Omni-Bus 900W from CustomRetailer magazine, which identifies innovative, high-performing and solutions-oriented products for the custom installation professional," explained Greg Rhoades, Director of Marketing for HAI by Leviton. "Customers worldwide are realizing the benefits of a central lighting control system with the flexibility of a distributed lighting control system, capable of controlling up to 256 lights, shades, fans, shutters and pumps."

The winning products will be featured in the CustomRetailer October EXC!TE Awards issue. In addition, the HAI by Leviton Omni-Bus 900W Dimmer DIN Rail will be available to view in the HAI by Leviton Booth, # 3449, at CEDIA EXPO. Additionally, HAI will be teaching two free courses at CEDIA, "Introduction to Home Automation" and "HAI Application Programming." For more information, email: training@homeauto.com.
