As the lighting control solutions market and the needs of its customers evolved – the outcome provided the most efficient lighting control solutions, and LED technology was brought to light.
"The growing need to get the installation industry acclimated with the LED technology drove Intermatic to help users like electrical contractors better understand the performance of lighting control when LED lighting is utilized," states Business Energy.
When it comes to switch failures and inrush currents, “[contractors] assume the switch manufacturer is making something faulty, but the problem could be avoided if they have the knowledge of the proper control specifications for those loads,” says Intermatic product marketing manager Jimmy Adjunta in the Business Energy article.
In It For the Long Haul
Twist lock photocontrols are built to withstand the test of time as they have refined ON/OFF switching with high quality relays. They also feature zero-crossing electronic circuitry for extended life (LED and EK models).
Furthermore, this Intermatic lighting control employs electronic components specifically to meet extended life targets while also having conformal-coated PCB assemblies for long term (LEF and EK models).
Products are tested to full ON/OFF lifecycles under tungsten, magnetic and electronic ballast loads.
Additionally, 6, 8 and 12-year warranties are offered – providing a lifelong commitment you can rely on.
