Harvard introduces new EyeNut driver
Published: 3 July 2015 - Marianne Evans
Harvard Engineering, working in the design, development and manufacture of energy saving lighting solutions, has added an additional EyeNut driver to its CoolLED range.
The CLZ 33W EyeNut driver with ZigBee dongle combines the company’s CoolLED driver technology with the benefits of the award-winning EyeNut monitoring and management system for indoor lighting, which provides individual luminaire control through a web interface as well as allowing energy consumption management and enabling a variety of control strategies to be employed.
The 33W driver, which operates at 2.4GHz and offers dimming down to 1%, is available in both built-in and remote variants. EyeNut drivers enable easy commissioning during the installation stage and reduce the number of components needed within the luminaire. The driver also works in conjunction with light engines from Harvard’s LEDeng range to provide an all-in-one controllable LED solution.
Based on the popular CL CoolLED platform, the ZigBee dongle enables the original platform to be maintained and is SELV compliant. This EyeNut enabled driver is perfect for retail, office and hospitality installations.
Andy Davies, head of business development and specification at Harvard, commented, “We are really excited to launch the CLZ EyeNut driver with ZigBee dongle. The driver combines Harvard’s control and LED capabilities to offer easy integration of EyeNut into a wide range of luminaires.”
Harvard is developing further EyeNut enabled driver solutions to add to the product range.
EyeNut is the perfect solution for both new installations, by using an EyeNut driver, and retrofitting existing lighting infrastructure, by using an EyeNut adaptor working in combination with the existing luminaire gear. The system was launched at LuxLive 2013 winning the Controls Innovation of the Year award at the exhibition.
