Leviton Middle East, a subsidiary of Leviton Manufacturing Company has announced that the company has been presented with Design Journal’s Platinum ADEX (Award for Design Excellence) for its OSSMD-F Occupancy Sensor. The award recognizes products marketed to the architectural and interior design trades for superior design and quality. The annual competition attracts over 1,200 entries nationwide, and judges consist of architects, designers and specifiers.
Leviton’s OSSMD-F multi-technology occupancy sensors features self-adaptive technology that compensates for real-time occupancy patterns to provide trouble-free “install and forget” performance, ensuring maximum energy savings and convenience. The OSSMD-F is ideal for use in commercial restrooms with exhaust fans, when there is a need for a delayed-OFF for a second relay. The sensor features a single push button switch with two relays and uses an auto-ON or manual-ON to keep exhaust fans on for an additional 10 minutes after the sensor switches lights off to clear vent air in public restrooms.
The OSSMD-F sensor is compatible with incandescent, fluorescent, and low-voltage lighting, and provides automatic switching of two separate lighting loads from a single unit. The unit features dual manual-override switches that can be used to toggle the ON/OFF status of each lighting load while an area is occupied. The sensor has an adjustable 30-minute time-delay setting for both relays with a shorter 30-second vacancy confirmation built into the first relay.
The OSSMD-F is rated 800W incandescent and 1200VA for magnetic low-voltage and fluorescent lighting at 120V AC, and 2700VA fluorescent at 277V AC. It can be used with magnetic or electronic ballasts and features true zero-crossing switching to ensure maximum relay life and compatibility with electronic ballasts. The device is part of Leviton's integrated energy management control offering that includes Leviton commercial occupancy sensors, timers, dimmers and photocells, as well as the mini-Z™ Daylight Harvesting systems and Architectural Lighting Control Systems.
