New intelligent occupancy sensor technology from Orion Energy Systems has been designed to save energy while enhancing lamp and ballast longevity.
Currently being deployed at facilities for PepsiAmericas and Sysco Foods, the occupancy sensors collect data on the presence of people moving through a designated space.
The sensors have the ability to change lighting conditions in the environment based on the data, automatically adjusting the settings of each feature to save energy.
Additionally, the technology includes an adjustable field of view to allow users to change the sensors' direction when needed.
"The dynamic nature of this technology allows for aggressive energy-saving strategies with overriding algorithms that prevent excessive cycling on a daily basis," commented Orion's president and chief executive officer Neal Verfuerth.
The firm was recently selected to become part of an evaluation process aimed at driving down energy costs in the city of Pittsburgh, which will include testing different types of LED street lighting.
