Automatic Lighting Control
MechoSystems and Encelium Technologies have partnered to create MechoLuxTM, a comprehensive lighting and shade-control solution. It combines MechoSystems' SolarTrac® WindowManagement® with Encelium's Energy Control System™ (ECS™), combining daylight harvesting and artificial lighting to provide optimum levels of occupant comfort and energy savings. MechoLux allows a building's occupants to keep outside views while being shielded from heat, glare and brightness. SolarTrac is a software-based control system that automatically adjusts window shades to adapt to solar and weather conditions. Lighting control is achieved through an Energy Control Unit (ECU), which serves as the central intelligence point for the areas it controls. The unit works with SolarTrac to set appropriate brightness levels for each assigned zone.
