When a power loss is detected both “client defined” and “code specified” programming can provide a virtually unlimited choice of illumination levels throughout the structure on a “zone-by-zone” basis. For example, all lights can remain “on” at a “code specified” level of egress illumination, and some lights at a predetermined “higher” levels of illumination. An example where this technology is useful is in healthcare applications where full illumination can be maintained in operating rooms, critical military environments, hazardous locations for personal safety, etc.
Transfer from AC power to DC back-up power can take place in as little as 4 milliseconds, providing a virtually undetectable loss of illumination.
All Digital Light Modules have a MTBF (mean time between failure) of 200,000 hours. For specialized applications Digital Light Modules are available with additional “hot- swappable” back-up power and applications that monitor and report system efficiency, temperature, stability and failure sensing.
The Illumination System of the Future
Installing fixtures using Class-2 DC power over Category-5 cable eliminates metal conduit, heavy gauge copper wire and j-boxes, significantly reducing installation costs and HVAC heat load.
SINGLE POINT CONTROL
LIGHTZERO’s Digital Light Module creates a hub for centralized control of lighting by DMX, 0-10 VDC, BACnet, KNX, or Alexa.
NO FIRE OR ELECTROCUTION
Per NEC, Class-2 Power eliminates the possibility of electrocution or fire from the lighting system.
