Leviton announced the launch of the Omni-Bus product line, comprised of twenty-nine modules and interfaces for sophisticated control over lights, shades, fans, shutters, pumps, motors and more, in both residential and light commercial buildings.
The bus and controller-based management family utilizes the worldwide DIN rail standard for mounting, and controls CFL, LED, electronic low voltage, Halogen and incandescent lighting. Modular and wireless components can be installed where needed to assist with wiring and installation costs ideal for new and retrofit applications.
Elegant, multi-button programmable wall switches eliminate the expense of in-wall high voltage wiring to multi-way switches. While competing central lighting systems require home runs to a central cabinet, Omni-Bus power wiring remains minimal as controllers can be localized to switches, which can then be programmed to perform a number of actions. Furthering the flexibility of the system, third-party momentary contact switches can be utilized to match aesthetic or form factor preferences. Modules and wall switches connect using commonly available Cat5e or better cabling.
“As a result of Leviton’s acquisition of ClickOn Technology in late 2014, we have been afforded the opportunity to launch Omni-Bus as a self-manufactured product line,” said Jay McLellan, Vice President of Leviton Security & Automation. “This successful solution has proven to be an affordable, powerful offering around the world, with several case studies recently produced to showcase the line’s versatility from condos to reception halls.”
Omni-Bus is designed for easy installation and flexibility, using a variety of topology architectures including hub and spoke, daisy chain and star. Appropriate modules are CE, FCC, UL (ETL), SASO, RETILAP, NOM and C-Tick approved. For remote access, scheduling abilities and complete automation, Omni-Bus can integrate with Leviton’s Omni security and automation systems, resulting in comprehensive building management.
The Leviton Omni-Bus product family is now available in all markets. To download new brochures, solution sheets and case studies, please visit leviton.com/Omni-Bus. To learn more, two public Omni-Bus overview webinars will be held on Thursday, January 22. Please email SAMarketing[.]leviton.com to register.
