New 480V Step Down Transformer and Battery Scheduling Switch Unveiled at LightShow West 2018
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 17, 2018 – Next-generation smart lighting advancements from LED lighting technology leader LG Electronics offer greater installation flexibility and expanded connectivity options for commercial and retrofit applications. LG’s new 480V step down transformer and battery scheduling switch are being introduced at LightShow West 2018 (LG Booth #1621).
“LG’s 480V Step Down Transformer and Battery Scheduling Switch are optimal choices for commercial building managers seeking upgrades to their existing lighting. Our industry-leading LED solutions provide the perfect alignment of energy efficiency and forward-thinking innovations for today’s lighting professional,” said James Bailey, head of LG’s U.S. LED lighting business.
LG’s 480V step down transformer provides a solution for effective power conversion down to 277V, enabling building owners with three-phase power to use existing wiring to connect with any LG LED lighting fixture.
Once commissioned, LG lighting solutions offer a wide selection of control options such as light levels, time-out features, fade rates and scheduling. The lightweight design allows for easy installation And LG’s 480V step down transformer solution is ideal for large indoor spaces such as warehouses, factories and gymnasiums.
“Our new Battery Scheduling Switch allows retrofit installers to easily upgrade existing switches with better features for a more streamlined experience,” said Bailey. “With an intuitive operation and function, and longer battery life, LG is once again bringing state-of-the-art LED lighting and seamless integration innovations to the market, with this helpful wireless control tool.”
The next-generation LG Battery Scheduling Switch allows users greater control of lighting, with improved scheduling functionality and design for easier operation, and up to 9-1/2 years of use with four AAA batteries. The battery-operated switch can be placed virtually anywhere and offers full wireless control using ZigBee to easily configure and control fixtures, along with an energy- saving set scheduling feature.
Through LG’s wireless commissioning app, the new battery powered scheduling switch allows users to toggle between fixtures, grouping them together for such features as dimming and turning on/off from the switch and control up to 10 events per day. LG’s battery scheduling switch also matches the look of the AC wired switches for a consistency across the project.
LG’s lineup of LED lighting solutions and controls is aimed at making customers’ lives easier with innovative technology. Attendees at LightShow West 2018 can learn more about the latest LED innovations at LG’s booth, including “Safe Blue” technology, retrofit troffers, performance high bays and more.
The next-generation LG Sensor Connect mobile application allows users greater control of lighting. The Android app comes embedded with VLC technology, a cutting-edge communication platform that can transmit data between fixtures and control devices using the visible light emitted by LED lights, simplifying and accelerating the commissioning process.
LG’s ZigBee-to-Analog Transformer (ZAT) can enable any luminaire with a 0-to-10-volt dimmable driver to be controlled using the LG Sensor Connect app. The ZAT is simply wired to the line voltage and the dimming leads of the fixture, and a dongle or LG Multi-Sensor is inserted into the slot, which enables each fixture to be addressable and controlled wirelessly.
This low-cost option for existing facilities looking to upgrade their lighting capabilities is compatible with LG Sensor Connect. This troffer can be wirelessly programmed with customizable light levels, allowing for greater energy savings and flexibility in fixture management.
LG’s round, IP65-rated high bay, a performance model within the company’s broader high bay line-up, is ideal for installations in food processing facilities and gymnasiums. The fixture is lightweight, weighing less than 10 pounds, allowing for easier installation and can be fully controlled wirelessly with LG Sensor Connect
LG Safe Blue LED lighting technology reduces the amount of lower blue light wavelengths that are common in conventional LED and standard lighting options. This cutting-edge solution can help improve occupant comfort in various commercial settings such as schools, hospitals and office buildings.
In case of loss of power, LG’s Emergency Battery Pack (EM Pack) runs for 90 minutes to keep the fixture running. This helpful solution will keep the lights on in a variety of power outage scenarios, through seamless integration into LG’s lineup of LED troffer solutions.
