EnFocus’™ patented power line control capability, including dimming and color tuning, is now available in both 3 Amp and 8 Amp wall switches -- serving the broad needs of health care, elder care, education, and military sectors plus a host of other industrial and commercial applications including hospitality and retail.
Rick James, Director of Operations for The Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State University commented, “Bryce Jordan Center installed the EnFocus™ system in five spaces. Two of these spaces serve diverse clients with different needs in our meeting rooms. The ability to change the brightness and Kelvin color temperature output enables us to provide clients softer or brighter light to serve their needs. EnFocus™ allowed us a simple retrofit solution, with a user-friendly interface that was easily adopted by our guests and clients. This flexibility in our space lighting gives us an advantage that many other buildings do not have and presents a progressive edge to our clients.”
Greg Galluccio, Senior Vice President, Product Management and Engineering concluded, “With the introduction of the EnFocus™ update, Energy Focus builds upon its established reputation for LED lighting industry innovation and quality. Our updated line of EnFocus™ power line control products that enable hard wired, digital dimming and color tuning control over existing wirelines demonstrates our commitment to provide flexible and cost-effective lighting solutions to the commercial marketplace. By delivering ‘simple, secure, healthy light,’ we create a more robust business proposition for better lighting environments for our customers and their end users around the world.”
