The Push-Button SwitchPod (sPODM) Series of low voltage wall stations interface with standard Sensor Switch occupancy sensors and power packs in order to implement a wide range of single and bi-level switching applications. These switch devices provide an elegant and cost effective way of deploying bi-level lighting control that meet energy and building codes without having to source special sensors or power packs.
Commonly required by building codes (such as California Title 24), bi-level lighting control is an easy and convenient method of delivering extra energy savings without inconveniencing the occupants. The most common bi-level configuration requires one lighting load to be switched on automatically when occupancy is detected by an occupancy sensor, while a second lighting load can be turned on manually by the occupant if desired. Both loads can then be turned off manually or via the occupancy sensor timing out. Sensors with photocells can also be configured with SwitchPods in order to add override off capabilities.
SwitchPods are all single gang decorator style devices available as single or dual switch units. Versions are also available that work in 3-way applications and/or have a 0-10 VDC dimming output. Units defaulted to dual manual-on operation are also available. For digital solutions to bi-level lighting applications, nLight-enabled wall stations (WallPods), power packs, and sensors are necessary.
