Crestron SolarSync™ Wins Architectural SSL Magazine's Product Innovation Award
Aug 16, 2018
New sensor technology measures the true color temperature and intensity of natural sunlight for recreating sunlight conditions indoors
Rockleigh, NJ – August 16, 2018 – Crestron, a global leader in commercial lighting control technology, announced today it has received Architectural SSL magazine’s Product Innovation Award for its new, aptly-named SolarSync™ sensor (GLS-LCCT). Also honored with two LFI Innovation Awards at LightFair® International 2018, SolarSync “brings the outside in” with correlated color temperature (CCT) technology and a luminous intensity meter (lux) to measure the exact color temperature and luminosity of ambient sunlight. A Crestron lighting control system then syncs the indoor lighting fixtures to the CCT and lux values recorded by the sensor, mirroring the natural daylight. Perfect for sensing daylight in all types of weather and climate, the IP67 rated housing contains built-in heating elements that prevent snow and ice from accumulating on the dome of the sensor, ensuring reliable operation year-round.
Circadian Lighting Applications
SolarSync revolutionizes circadian lighting control. Traditional tunable white and circadian lighting solutions utilize astronomical time clock and manual user controls. Groundbreaking SolarSync technology incorporates the true atmospheric conditions such as climate and weather that dramatically impact the color and intensity of sunlight. Because the CCT and lux values of ambient sunlight are measured at the building level, the Crestron lighting control system more accurately recreates outdoor conditions in the tunable lighting, delivering life-like lighting performance. Designed for applications in which physiological, psychological, or aesthetic improvement through circadian lighting is a priority, SolarSync is the only solution that accurately mirrors sunlight through tunable white lighting control.
