Leviton Intros Daylight Harvesting Commercial Sensors

June 17, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

sensor energy manageLeviton introduced a new family of line-voltage occupancy sensors.

Its Provolt ODC family of occupancy sensor models switch connected loads ON when occupancy is detected and automatically switch them OFF after a predetermined time interval after the space is vacated. Vacancy sensor versions require connected loads to be switched ON manually and automatically turn them OFF when occupancy is no longer detected.

All models feature Leviton’s auto-adapting technology, which continually adjusts to occupancy patterns to deliver optimal performance and to prevent false triggering. The Provolt occupancy sensors also feature daylight harvesting (both open and closed loop) through an integrated photocell that automatically activates or deactivates connected loads, such as lighting, fans and HVAC, in conjunction with the presence or absence of natural light. In instances of power failure, an automatic time-delay with auto-save feature returns the time-out setting to the last saved level once power is restored.

The Provolt ODC design is integrated to eliminate separate power pack and sensor wiring. Available in passive infrared, ultrasonic and multi-technology versions, the new line features both single and dual relay versions with mid-range, high-density and extended range lenses included with select models.
