New Fixture-Integrated Wireless Controls from Acuity Controls for High Performance, Facility-Wide Lighting Management
Acuity Controls introduces the XPoint™ Wireless lighting control system – a zero-latency lighting management system for building wide control. The XPoint Wireless system is ideal for new construction and retrofit lighting projects in covered parking areas, high bay spaces, corridors and stairwells.
"The XPoint Wireless lighting control system makes wireless fixture-by-fixture or group control of lighting in outdoor spaces simple to deploy," said Lance Hollner, Director, Acuity Controls. "Using proven Adura® wireless technology, the system brings fixtures and sensors together into a reliable mesh network. This provides high-speed response from control to fixture."
XPoint Wireless embeds controls and distributes decision making directly into the fixture, creating an intelligent luminaire and enabling superior lighting management. Users can implement a wide range of lighting control strategies, including programming light fixture operation to zone-based occupancy control, as well as daylight control. The system can store schedules and group information for immediate and accurate response to increase operational efficiency. Its ability to monitor on-board current and report lamp outages enhances facility optimization. Additional features include direct programming from a PC or the web, scheduling options and maintenance alerts.
Given this unique approach of distributed intelligence and control, XPoint Wireless lighting controls are able to operate without an active gateway or repeater, ensuring no single point of failure. The system ensures savings in labor, material cost, and energy, as well as helps control lighting to produce the right amount of light for visual comfort and security.
XPoint Wireless lighting controls can operate as a stand-alone wireless solution or be combined with other Acuity Controls products to create a hybrid wired/wireless solution complete with switching and dimming relay panels, BMS integration, and Unity GX2™ floor plan control, monitoring and analytics software.
