Lighting Voltage Controllers "WattManager®"
Lighting Voltage Controller
WattManager® is an energy saving Lighting
voltage-controller that substantially reduces the amount of electricity used
by fluorescent and High Intensity Discharge (HID) lighting systems without significantly
reducing light output.
WattManager® units provide nominal voltage
to the lamps during ignition, allowing the full ionization process.
When the ionization process is complete, the WattManager® reduces
the voltage supplied to the lighting system.
Since the lights have achieved full ionization, they will maintain a high degree of
brightness despite the reduction in voltage. A 15 - 20% reduction in input power,
in most cases up to 25%, results in virtually undetectable lumen
reduction of approximately four to eight percent.
3 Phase WattManager®
LESS POWER CONSUMPTION
DOES NOT MEAN LESS VISIBLE LIGHT
WattManager® units include an AUTOMATIC LOAD SENSOR.
The sensor is intended for facilities where portions of the lighted area are
turned on and off at various times. Electronic circuitry will sense when additional
lights are added and place the controller into the high voltage mode while the lights
are starting. Then will return to low voltage after the programmed appropriate delay.
WattManager® units are housed in drip-proof metal (NEMA 1 or 3R) enclosures.
They may be Floor or Wall Mounted.
The Lighting Voltage Controller "WattManager®"
qualifies for Investment Tax Credit in most states and power company rebates.
Air Conditioning is more efficient with the reduction in lighting wattage.
Air conditioning load is decreased due to lower ballast temperature.
For each watt saved in lighting almost 25% to 33% is saved in air conditioning load.
