Leviton Expands miniZ Offering with Dual Room MiniZ System Single Device Provides Daylight Management Control for Two Individual Rooms

Little Neck, NY, September 12, 2006 - Leviton has expanded its miniZ Intelligent Daylight Management System offering to include a new Dual Room miniZ(TM). The Dual Room miniZ combines occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting and flexible lighting control functionality in a single, compact package that provides control functionality for two individual rooms.

The Dual Room miniZ offers the same performance features as Leviton's miniZ system and provides easy installation. As a self-contained, self-configuring system, it is designed to meet a wide variety of commercial lighting needs, from basic switching to multi-zone daylight harvesting. Leviton miniZ and Dual Room MiniZ offer industry-leading automated setup functions which ease the process of harvesting natural daylight, while taking into account changing environmental conditions. Both systems provide a simple, cost-effective solution for meeting energy-code mandates for balancing artificial and natural light sources to maximize energy-efficiency.

Leviton's miniZ systems provide an exclusive AutoCal(TM) feature that automates photocell calibration. This establishes maximum light output levels and calculates light loss factors, resulting in consistently accurate lumen output. When used with Leviton's LV200 or LV240 Low-Voltage Wall Stations, the miniZ systems offer a Ladderless Commissioning(TM) feature: users simply set up the system and adjust it from the wall-mounted LV200 or LV240 Wall Station, rather than having to climb a ladder to fine-tune adjustments as natural light levels vary.

Both systems additionally afford users a simple and cost-effective way to comply with code requirements: Users can individually control fixture circuits near windows to optimally respond to daylight levels. By combining Leviton photocells and low-voltage occupancy sensors, contractors, specifiers, facility managers and end-users can achieve a complete energy management solution for virtually any application environment, from classrooms to cafeterias and office spaces, to take advantage of natural daylight. miniZ can be wired as easily as a traditional power pack.
