Eaton offers the Distributed Low Voltage Power (DLVP) system, a flexible and electrically efficient low-voltage system combining power, LED lighting and controls into one simple, energy code compliant, project solution by blending the benefits of both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) power distribution. The easily configured “plug-and-play” system reduces installation labor by up to 40 percent with a total installed system cost savings of up to 20 percent.
The energy-efficient, commissioning DLVP solution utilizes AC power for transmission and DC power for connectivity, offering a complete low-voltage, simple solution for applications with repeated spaces and matching configurations including schools, private and open commercial offices, conference rooms and healthcare facilities such as doctor’s offices, urgent care and rehabilitation centers. The light-emitting diode system was recently installed in the Cincinnati, Ohio-based offices of USGreentech, a company focused on the development and distribution of progressive synthetic turf infill for the sports field industry.
“Whether managing a single room or entire facility, customers and installers want a safe, cost-conscious, easy-to-configure system that simplifies code compliance,” said Quentin Mecklenborg, owner, Brooks and Sons Remodeling, who installed USGreentech’s DLVP system. “It took one person less than a day to install a 2,000 square foot space with lighting, from running the wire to the power module and connecting all the fixtures to working order versus traditional wiring, which would have taken two electricians over a day to wire the same amount of fixtures.”
“The out-of-the-box functionality of the DLVP system provides design-build contractors, installers and owners an LED lighting and controls solution that offers fast, simple installation with reduced wiring materials and minimal complexity,” said Chris Andrews, product manager, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “The sustainable solution allows customers the ability to control and program different lighting products based on occupancy and daylighting. Our system provides energy code compliant lighting, receptacle and emergency controls capabilities without commissioning.”
The DLVP system components include a power module, available in 300 and 600 watts; traditional lighting control options including occupancy and daylight sensors; zone and scene wall stations that offer out-of-the-box control; and receptacle control switch packs to control receptacle plug loads.
The DLVP system includes hand-held programming and personal remotes. The programming remote sets sensor hold times and sensitivity, daylight gains by zone, sensor range and assigns fixtures with integrated sensors to control zones. The personal remote provides the user the ability to individually control zones and create scenes to customize their lighting environments.
The system is compatible with models representing Eaton’s most popular lighting product lines including Metalux, Corelite, Neo-Ray, Portfolio and Halo Commercial.
