Acuity Brands has introduced the nLight ECLYPSE controller, which combines digital lighting and HVAC controls in a single platform.
The platform provides building managers with the ability to configure, monitor and control systems through a single intuitive interface, the company says. The system, which uses the BACnet/IP protocol, is based on the ECLYPSE platform by Distech Controls and nLight light controls by Acuity Controls.
The controller monitors and controls sensor data for lighting and HVAC in real time, which the company says drives energy efficiency and adds to the comfort of people in the building. It is scalable and, since its uses WiFi, is appropriate for renovations.
