We replaced an outdated lighting control system and dimming panels with a state-of-the-art Lutron Quantum system. The project included 340 zones of lighting and eleven partitioning sensors for customized control of the many ballroom spaces. ProAutomated’s Sales Engineer Nick Kruse led the effort to be awarded this project which will allow the hotel to save energy by replacing older lighting equipment with the latest in LED solid-state lighting.
With almost one-thousand old and inefficient light bulbs illuminating their plant, United Water came to ProAutomated asking for a solution to their high energy bills and frequent maintenance requirements of changing burned-out light bulbs. We provided a solution using replacement LED lamps which required no re-wiring or fixture removal. A Return on Investment document which Nick Kruse provided made the decision to move forward on this very easy for United Water.
In one of their magnificent galleries we replaced the outdated ballasts and T8 fluorescent lamps with Lutron’s EcoSystem ballasts and energy saving T5 lamps. This cost-saving measure reused the existing fluorescent fixtures by retrofitting the new ballasts and new sockets. We also provided recycling service for the existing materials. For control, we tied into their existing Lutron Quantum system. This redesign resulted in a better lit space with improved dimming performance.
This project had several existing Lutron dimming panels which are now being managed by a new Quantum Control System by Lutron. This system update includes control via keypads, GrafikEye controllers, BACnet integration and mobile iPad control.
We developed a creative solution to provide controls for most of the stadium. Our new plan replaces the wired controls with wireless Lutron controls and sensors to provide better flexibility, expandability and systems integration at a lower price per space.
LEDs were not yet cost-effective when Juniper Networks moved into its two new buildings in Sunnyvale over two years ago. Today, LEDs have reached technology cost improvement levels to enable Juniper Networks to significantly reduce energy costs – while improving light quality and reducing maintenance.
