Industry embraces LumiSmart ILC to reduce energy consumption and save costs
(PRWEB) October 26, 2010
Cavet Technologies Inc. today proudly announced the general availability of its LumiSmart ILC™ (Intelligent Lighting Controller) upon receiving Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Certification, the global product safety certification and compliance standard. Developed for the commercial and industrial markets, the LumiSmart ILC is a purpose-built product that dramatically reduces power consumed by existing and installed fluorescent lighting systems with no discernable impact on occupant comfort.
“We are excited to receive UL Certification to enable the worldwide sale of LumiSmart ILC and fulfill distributor and customer demand,” said Albert Behr, President and CEO of Cavet Technologies Inc. “The widespread availability of the product marks a significant milestone in worldwide lighting standards. LumiSmart ILC is a major advancement in energy conservation while dramatically reducing costs and installation time for commercial and industrial customers.”
LumiSmart ILC is the first of a new class of Smart Grid-enabled lighting controllers that provide microprocessor-driven adaptive control of lighting circuits to reduce power consumption. Providing an instant 30 per cent or more power reduction without replacing any existing lamps, ballasts or fixtures, the LumiSmart ILC is ideally suited for a variety of lighting environments, including office buildings; industrial spaces; government, education and health care facilities; retail locations and shopping malls; and parking garages. Reducing energy consumption directly at the source, LumiSmart ILC eases pressure on the electrical grid, as well as immediately cutting carbon emissions for commercial and industrial customers.
“Cavet is taking an innovative approach to lighting controls that removes many of the traditional barriers to adoption,” said Emma Ritch, Senior Research Analyst for Cleantech Group. “Cavet’s technology significantly reduces the energy drain of traditional lighting solutions.”
“As the leading distributor of electrical products in the world, and the largest in Canada, it is our strategy to partner with best in class suppliers to ensure our customers have access to the best products available in the market” said Jeff Hall, CEO of Rexel Canada. “We are excited to present LumiSmart ILC to our customers to help them conserve energy and cut costs. Cavet’s LumiSmart ILC is prime example of this important strategy to reduce energy consumption.”
Cavet Technologies has engaged Celestica, a global leader in the delivery of end-to-end product lifecycle solutions, to manufacture all LumiSmart ILC devices, giving Cavet Technologies, its channel partners and customers access to world-class engineering and quality manufacturing.
“Celestica is committed to helping its customers get to market faster,” said Mike Andrade, Senior Vice President, North America, Celestica. “Our expertise in design for manufacture, design for test and lab services supported Cavet in the process of receiving UL certification approval for its LumiSmart ILC.”
“LumiSmart has already generated significant interest in California where GGI, a widely recognized successful illumination energy service company (ESCO), is distributing it,” said Stacey Rutherford, CEO for GGI. “We are thrilled to fulfill customer orders throughout the state and enable our clients to reap the benefits of this innovative and unique technology. The rebate program offered by San Francisco Energy Watch, a PG&E-sponsored program that offers up to a 50 per cent rebate for LumiSmart, has fueled additional interest.”
