News & Events
The commercialization of Echelon's Lumewave MWX-LVE long-range outdoor microwave sensor illustrates CLTC's success in supporting advanced sensors for adaptive outdoor applications.
CLTC demonstrated and supported the next-generation sensor, which detects movement and can distinguish between slow and fast moving objects such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorized vehicles. The sensor reacts to the size of objects from longer distances, automatically raising the light levels to high output when the areas are occupied and lowering them when areas are vacant.
CLTC developed the High-Efficacy Residential Lighting guide to provide information about lighting products and key lighting principles and best practice recommendations. The guide is designed to help builders and lighting industry professionals working on zero-net energy (ZNE) and sustainable residential projects.
The California Lighting Technology Center’s 2013 Outdoor Lighting Guide for Title 24, Part 6 compliance is designed to help builders, lighting industry professionals, and others navigate the nonresidential outdoor lighting portion of California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
