Lighting controls run the gamut from sensors, dimmers, switches, control panels, routers and wireless communications. When grouped together, these myriad devices can form the basis for overall building automation. As a major component in energy management, lighting may account for 20-50% of the electricity usage in commercial buildings. Advanced lighting controls can ensure compliance with Title 24, ASHRAE 90.1, EPACT and other utility rebate programs, as well a make a significant contribution LEED building certification. Bias Power is a member of the Enocean Alliance.
Bias low-power ac/dc modules are an excellent solution for powering the associated relays, electronics and communications devices used in the design of lighting controls. Our complete, turnkey modules have a universal input voltage range and provide a single drop-in power solution to simplify your bill of materials, by replacing 30-40 discrete components. The units are printed circuit board mountable and compatible with standard industry assembly processes.
Of particular importance in smart lighting control applications, Bias modules are designed for very-high reliability, even when presented with poor input power quality and temperature extremes. With inherently low EMI, they are fully compatible with such communication protocols as ZigBee and mesh networks.
