    LG Networked Lighting Controls

    Overview

    Although lighting control solutions have been proven to significantly reduce lighting energy consumption, many parts of commercial building market have been hesitant due to cost, complexity and applicability. However, new wireless technologies are eliminating these concerns, while expanding the lighting control capabilities.

    Removing the wires
    A new generation of lighting control systems is reducing cost and eliminating complexity concerns by removing the dedicated control wiring.

    Flexibility
    Instead of placing controls where wiring permits, building owners are free to place controls where they are needed to improve building performance. As the needs of a space change, changes can be made at any point, or new devices and control strategies added, simply by reprogramming.

    Scalability
    Once a wireless network is established, that network can grow to cover an ever-expanding area at a low additional cost. Additional sensors, switches and lights require minimal labor and disruption, and utilize the same wireless control system without the need
    to add a new control infrastructure.

    Lighting Control Strategy

    Lighting control manages and automates the delivery of the correct amount of light, where you want it, when you want it. Lights can automatically turn on/off or dim at set times or under set conditions, and users can have control over their own lighting levels to provide optimal working conditions. A lighting control solution automates and simplifies cost- and energy-saving strategies such as below:

    Scheduling
    Turn on/off and dim lights at specified times during the day—for example, automatically turn lights on at the start of business hours, and off after workers leave at night.

    Occupancy sensors
    Detect when a room is occupied, to automatically turn lights on when someone enters and off (or dim) shortly after they leave.

    Daylight harvesting
    Use photosensors to detect levels of natural lighting, and automatically dim lights when sunlight is streaming into windows. This reduces energy use and provides consistent lighting levels.

    Demand response
    Utility companies frequently offer their customers incentives to encourage them to reduce energy consumption, especially at times of peak usage or when retail energy prices are high. Lighting control solutions can automatically respond to these events and reduce energy consumed by lighting to pre-set levels.

    Total Control System with DaintreeNetworks

    Easy Installation & Scalability

    LG Lighting with ZigBee®

    LG Lighting is designed as a wireless-embedded system, which users can control wirelessly by simply inserting a compact communication dongle into the driver. By adopting ZigBee®, an open wireless protocol, the system not only works seamlessly with devices that use the same protocol, but also integrates with the control systems of solution providers like DaintreeNetworks.

    Commissioning as a Service

    LG offers commissioning services that seamlessly guide customers through the process of transitioning to energy efficient Smart lighting. Smart light solutions involve coordination to ensure that the details are done right from the initial planning to the final close-out phases of a project. Therefore, it is important that they select a partner who is knowledgeable about the conversion and commissioning process. Partnering with LG is the best way to guarantee that your project is designed to maximize energy savings.


    Lead Crystal Batteries
    By Betta Batteries

    Overview

    There are fundamental flaws of lead-acid, gel, and AGM batteries such as plate sulfation, active material loss, high water loss rate, serious acid pollution, poor low temperature performance, short life cycle,and poor transport safety.

    Betta Batteries successfully developed Lead Crystal Batteries to solve these problems through five exclusive patented technological innovations.

    Applications

    Versatile in application — Lead Crystal® batteries can be used in any application where lead acid, lead gel batteries or AGM Batteries are used today. Lead Crystal® batteries are also the preferred battery in some applications where lithium is used. The overview below is not exhaustive, so please contact us for more information if your application is not listed.

    • Solar Power

    • Wind Power

    • Electric Vehicles

    • Emergency Power Supplies

    • Backup Systems for Telecomm

    • Railway Signaling Systems

    Lead Crystal Characteristics

    Lead Crystal® Technology

    Special Electrolyte Composition

    A unique micro-porous high-absorbent mat (AGM), thick plates cast from a high purity lead calcium selenium alloy (which ensure an extended life), and a SiO2 based electrolyte solution.

    By using a unique blending technology, Lead Crystal® is able to combine a variety of inorganic salts and organic substances to co-ordinate a combined reaction to improve the reaction ability between the electrolyte and active material on the lead plates. The electrolyte prevents the active material from becoming brittle and falling of the plates, improving the cycle life. 

    When charged/discharged the liquid electrolyte transforms into a crystallized state leaving hardly any free liquid electrolyte in the battery. This opens a wide range of installation applications, since the risk of electrolyte leakage is minimized. This reaction also improves the products' safety, making it less harmful to installers and users alike. 

    Tailored Manufacturing Process

    Using pressure filling technology in combination with patented gravity filling containers to fill the batteries with electrolyte and a patented terminal connecting equipment. These manufacturing features ensure a much more even distribution of electrolyte in each cell further enhancing the performance of the batteries and increasing the efficiency.

    VidaShield

    Overview

    VidaShield reduces the levels of bacteria and fungi in treated air and reduces the settling of viable bacteria and fungi from treated air. Vidashield combines an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) chamber and air circulating fans with an overhead ceiling light to allow for 24/7/365 operation in occupied spaces.

    Applications

    • Hospitals

    • Emergency rooms

    • Medical centers

    • Doctors offices

    • Any location requiring a sterile environment

    Vidashield Install

    Vidashield Install

    How VidaShield Works

    • UV-C technology has been used as a disinfection method for decades in the healthcare industry, it has been proven effective for neutralizing dangerous microorganisms.

    • Shielded UV-C allows for installation in occupied spaces.

    • The patented system uses UV-C light and filtration to draw in and treat surrounding air.

    • Vidashield can treat a volume of air equivalent to an 8’ x 10’ x 10’ room four times per hour.

    Installation and Maintenance

    • Fits into standard 2x4 drop ceilings, all products are 6" tall

      • Options available for hard ceilings

    • No operator required – VidaShield doesn’t require a person to operate the unit and maintenance requirements are minimal. The lumen output on the UV lamp will start to diminish after approximately 9000 hours (375 days), so we recommend you change the UV lamp once per year to maintain maximum efficacy on the unit.

    • The MERV6 filter removes dust and particulates from the air. In a healthcare setting that operates 24/7, we recommend the filters be changed every 3 months. In a dentist’s office, physician’s office, school or commercial building where occupancy is limited to daytime hours, the filters can be changed annually.

    • No need to switch off any equipment when installing

    • Connects in parallel through a spare breaker in your electrical panel

    • Reduction Payback in under 24 months

    BPU™ Technology

    • The BPU™ electromagnetic reactor core dynamically monitors the incoming power from the electric utility and corrects any anomalies before they reach your electrical systems and sensitive electronic equipment.

    • The BPU™ then monitors all of the electric power running throughout your facility, instantaneously correcting any sensed anomalies as they occur.

    • Electric current degraded by internal systems and loads cannot be utilized by other devices, so that portion of the energy you pay for at the meter is wasted.

      • The reactor core captures the distorted, wasted energy and transforms it back into usable energy and then releases it into the building electrical network as your equipment and systems call for it.
