Universal Lighting Technologies adds Diversa sensor line to high-performing lighting control solutions

by Brianna Crandall — March 1, 2017 — Universal Lighting Technologies, a provider of commercial lighting and a member of the Panasonic Group, has announced the addition of the Diversa sensor line to the company’s range of high-performing lighting control solutions. The Diversa sensor line includes Ceiling Mount Sensors, Switch Mount Sensors, Corner Wall Mount Sensors and Power Packs.

Diversa options include dual technology and passive infrared sensor (PIR) sensing products, as well as line-voltage (both 120-277VAC & 347VAC) and low-voltage products. Dual Technology products combine proprietary ADI-Voice technology with industry-standard PIR sensing to minimize energy consumption and provide accurate occupancy detection when compared to ultrasonic and basic PIR sensors.

Diversa occupancy sensors can be used for energy-saving control strategies in spaces with intermittent lighting requirements, such as classrooms, offices, washrooms, warehouses and many other commercial or industrial spaces. By shutting off power to luminaires in unoccupied spaces, Diversa sensors are engineered to enhance energy savings of already effective systems. Additionally, these sensors are easy for contractors to install, and seamlessly integrate with other controllable lighting measures, says Universal.

Wally Creer, director of Product Management for Universal, stated:

A sustained focus on energy efficiency requires products for all buildings and project types, even as more integrated lighting solutions emerge. To help facility managers meet their goals, Universal is committed to offering products which deliver market-leading performance with the convenience of easy installation and configuration flexibility.

Most products in the Diversa sensor line are equipped with photo sensors to inhibit turn-on when adequate natural illumination exists. Some products also have dimming outputs for daylight harvesting, enabling dynamic control with varying degrees of natural light. These sensors may be paired with Universal ballasts or LED drivers to provide both component efficiency improvements and building-wide reduction of energy consumption.
