NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 30, 2018) – Douglas Lighting Controls, a member of the Panasonic family of companies, today announced the introduction of its next generation LitePak™, a cost-effective, fully digital and dimmable lighting control solution designed for use in a variety of retail and commercial spaces, including gas stations, convenience stores, warehouses and auto dealerships.
“Contractors are demanding low-cost, easy-to-install lighting control systems, especially for small and medium-sized applications,” said Rob Mahaffey, General Manager for Douglas Lighting Controls. “LED lighting with dimming capabilities is commonly used to create more energy efficient facilities. Adding lighting controls is a logical and effective solution, and this is where LitePak 2 really adds value.”
With its 0-10V dimming control, LitePak 2 enables daylight harvesting and dimming functionality to automatically provide the right amount of light when needed, reducing energy consumption.
LitePak 2 is available in 8 and 16 relay, dimming or non-dimming, central and expansion panels that can be combined to support up to 48 light circuits. The central enclosure includes a Lighting Control Unit (LCU) with touchscreen interface to group relays, set schedules and create automated functionality. Each steel panel is ordered with a locking surface mount or flush mount cover. NEMA Type 4 enclosures are also available for harsh environments.
Digital peripheral devices from Douglas Lighting Controls—occupancy sensors, wall station switches, indoor and outdoor daylight sensors—are easily connected to the panel using readily available #18/2 AWG to create a robust and reliable dialog low-voltage, polarity neutral, power and data network.
Contractors and engineers can expedite project approvals and turn-around by using LitePak 2 in its standard configurations. LitePak 2 is designed to meet ASHRAE and Title 24 project requirements.
