GridNavigator, a manufacturer of smart devices for the commercial market, announced today the availability of a new dimmable fixture-mount occupancy sensor. This occupancy sensor can dim any compatible light fixture to a user-controlled dimming level when its surroundings are unoccupied. Traditionally, fixture-mount occupancy sensors are not dimmable and have only 2 modes, on and off. However, the mass-market adoption of LED light fixtures allows for automatic dimming control through a standard 0-10V control interface, delivering end-user savings without compromising the safety and comfort of building occupants. GridNavigator’s occupancy sensor provides local savings at each fixture combined with GridNavigator’s PTS (Programmable Time Switch) that provides control and savings at the circuit level.
