  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 10, 2011 - Encelium Technologies, a leading technology development company specializing in integrated lighting control systems for commercial buildings, has introduced its new family of low-voltage occupancy sensors. This product line includes a full range of passive infrared (PIR) and dual technology (Ultrasonic/PIR) low-voltage sensors available in both wall mount and ceiling mount configurations.

    "These occupancy sensors are ideal for use with our Energy Control SystemTM and also as stand-alone sensor applications for projects where ECS may not be suitable," said Tony Marano, president and CEO of Encelium.

    PIR and Ultrasonic line-voltage wall switches are also available as are 120V, 277V and 347V power packs. Any of the new low-voltage sensors can be converted to line-voltage use with a Power Pack (PPK-020/PPK-347) or a unique Power Base Adaptor (PBA-015). All of the sensors are customized for use with ECS with optimized factory presets for sensitivity and default time-outs.

    When the sensors are used within the ECS architecture, parameters including time-outs, support zones, integration with time schedules, sharing of occupancy data with building management systems, and zone control, are all configured through Encelium's Polaris 3DTM software. A first of its kind software application in the lighting control industry, Polaris 3D is used to commission, configure and manage Encelium's ECS.

    Introduced this summer, Polaris 3D provides an industry-first 360-degree, three-dimensional view of lighting energy use in a facility. With Polaris 3D, users will no longer need to navigate through single floors, or a 'tree architecture,' to reach a specific control zone. Instead, they will get a 3D, colorized thermo-graphic view of system parameters to identify areas and trends of lighting inefficiencies throughout a building.

    "In today's market, owners and managers of all property types are looking to rein in energy usage and cut operating costs while improving tenant satisfaction and ergonomics," added Marano. "With our expanding product line including this new family of sensors and recently introduced Polaris 3D, we continue to offer owners and managers the ability to do just that."

    Encelium's ECS is the most advanced lighting control solution for commercial buildings on the market, proven to cut lighting energy expenditures by 50 to 75 percent and significantly reduce CO2 emissions. The system has an average two-to-five-year payback-on-investment period. It seamlessly integrates six energy management strategies including daylight harvesting, occupancy control, smart-time scheduling, task tuning, personal control and load shedding.

    ECS typically meets and exceeds today's sustainable requirements for new construction or retrofits of existing properties. It also contributes between 12 to 18 points, depending upon the application, toward achieving the coveted U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED). Since the company's founding in 2001, ECS has been installed in more than 40 million square feet of commercial space across North America and Europe.

    Headquartered in Teaneck, N.J., Encelium maintains operations in Canada and Europe. Over the past two years, the company has experienced tremendous growth, posting nearly a 100-percent annual sales increase.
