LaMar Lighting Co. of Farmingdale, N.Y., introduces the second generation of its LED occu-smart series of motion-sensor controlled bi-level lighting, reportedly delivering ample illumination when the space is occupied and dimming down for energy-savings the rest of the time. The new fixtures feature LED components made in the USA and offer enhanced performance optimized for bi-level lighting applications.

The second generation of occu-smart is equipped with a new LED driver that allows installers to adjust full-output light levels in the field. In addition, the fixtures offer the option of multiple low-light, or standby, levels, with energy savings up to 88% of full output during unoccupied times. Standby wattages are as low as 3.5W for the two-foot model and 5W for the four-foot model. The time delay feature can also be customized to suit the needs of a specific application.

LaMar Lighting also selected new LED boards for this generation of occu-smart. The LED boards, also made in the United States, feature metal core printed circuit boards that allow for cooler operation than most fiberglass composite boards, and are made with high-quality Samsung 5630 LEDs.

In application

Occu-smart motion-sensor controlled bi-level lighting technology is most frequently installed in staircases, corridors and other seldom occupied spaces, the company reports, but has also been successfully used to save energy in libraries, parking garages and retail applications. With more than 200,000 units in operation, occu-smart’s installations include the U.S. Department of State, Washington, D.C.; Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota; Madison Square Garden, New York; Hersheypark, in Pennsylvania; and Columbia University in New York.

All occu-smart fixtures are UL-listed and, when equipped with an optional emergency battery backup, qualify as emergency lighting and power equipment per UL 924. The company reports that its fixtures are assembled by members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) union.
