Cost-Conscious Lifesaver: A-Series Lighting Control Panel



PLAINVILLE, CT - Grappling with rising energy costs, code compliance and electrical system integration-a daily reality for many retail and commercial property management executives-gets markedly easier with the newly available A-Series Lighting Control Panel from GE Consumer & Industrial. The unit incorporates a remote-operated circuit breaker and a microprocessor controller to enable automatic, scheduled lighting control or override control based on real-time needs.

"Anyone involved with specifying or operating lighting and electrical components will appreciate the value that our A-Series Lighting Control Panel brings," says Terry Tow, new product planning and development manager, GE Consumer & Industrial. "This is a highly versatile tool-a complete package for reducing lighting costs, adding short-circuit protection and remote control functionality, and maximizing lighting load zoning for cost-saving initiatives."

Easy to integrate with native BACnet and Modbus RTU/TCP protocols without the requirement of gateways, the A-Series Lighting Control Panel allows users to establish and manage load priorities and perform load shedding on command. It also enables daylight optimization for harvesting sunlight and increasing cost savings, and burn-hour tracking for measuring run-time on lighting loads, which can help users avoid outages and schedule re-lamping projects. Other controller features and benefits include:

o 16 schedules - 7-day repeating schedule, 16 daily on/off periods;

o 16 lighting zones - group branch breakers controlled by schedules, manual inputs or override commands;

o electronic clock - real-time clock, astronomical clock, leap year and daylight saving time adjustments;

o event and trend logs - show alarms and status changes.

Use of the A-Series Lighting Control Panel instead of standard lighting control products can help companies save space and reduce installation costs. The UL-certified remote-operated circuit breaker replaces the need for relays, contactors and the control cabinets that house these separate components. Installation costs can be reduced because there is no need to wire all of the separate devices; the TEYRC remote-operated circuit breaker plugs into internal control strips within the standard panel board enclosure.
