The new Integral Fixture Control makes the Vive Wireless lighting controls system even smarter and enhances the energy efficiency and flexibility of commercial spaces.

Coopersburg, PA (May 9, 2017)Lutron Electronics, the leader in energy-saving wireless lighting and shade control, today launched the Vive Integral Fixture Control – a wireless lighting control solution that can turn any fixture into a wireless, smart fixture. Lutron’s new Integral Fixture Control can be used on its own or within the Lutron Vive wireless lighting control system, a scalable, flexible solution enabling energy savings and comfort-enhancing benefits for new and existing commercial buildings.

Ideal for commercial or government offices and educational facilities, the fixture control technology works with any Lutron EcoSystem LED driver or third-party DALI drivers.

The Integral Fixture Control is designed to work with a wide range of luminaire manufacturers and comes in an RF-only and sensor-enabled versions. The RF-only version can be mounted above the ceiling and paired with Lutron’s area level wireless sensors.

The sensor-enabled controller features fixture-level occupancy sensing and daylight harvesting capabilities in addition to wireless communication. The Vive Integral Fixture Control is integrated directly into a luminaire and sent to the job site, pre-installed from the factory.

By providing a fixture-by-fixture control solution and eliminating wiring between fixtures, the Integral Fixture Control dramatically reduces design challenges, installation difficulties and energy usage:
  • Fixture level control simplifies design by eliminating the need to take zoning and control wiring into account.
  • Zoning of control and sensing can be adjusted at any time, even after installation.
  • Removes the need to modify the fixture on site, making controls a trouble-free, predictable step-and-repeat process.
After installation, the solution leverages Lutron’s ultra-reliable Clear Connect wireless technology to ensure superior performance and minimize the risk of costly callbacks to the jobsite for troubleshooting or performance issues. The Integral Fixture Control ensures the lighting will easily evolve with the needs of the space. Individual fixture control and the Lutron Vive app make re-zoning simple and fast, giving the end user infinite flexibility to update the space’s lighting as needed.

“With the addition of the new individual fixture control, Lutron is providing optimized functionality in an elegant aesthetic and enabling compatibility with a wide range of fixtures. The adaptability gives lighting designers, engineers, contractors, and ultimately end users, complete design freedom – beginning in the planning stage and continuing for years to come,” said Eric Lind, Vice-President of Global Specifications at Lutron.

Design Freedom for Fixture OEMs
The Vive Integral Fixture Control is designed to work with Lutron’s EcoSystem LED Drivers as well as third-party DALI drivers. Additionally, Lutron has announced alliances with Philips and Osram to make the Integral Fixture Control technology compatible with their sensor-capable drivers. These alliances demonstrate Lutron’s commitment to making adoption of the Integral Fixture Control simple and easy to design into any fixture. Lutron is actively working with many of its 350+ fixture OEM partners to integrate the solution, ensuring a Vive-enabled fixture for every application.  

“We believe the potential for design is greatly enhanced through technological advancement. This innovation underpins Lutron’s commitment to providing customers with reliable, state-of-the-art solutions. With that in mind, we will continue to embrace the Internet of Things movement as we evaluate future customer needs and product development,” said Lind.

The Integral Fixture Control is available now for specification and will be shipping in August. Commercial architects, designers and specifiers can work with their local Lutron representative for cost estimates and specifications. After August, customers can contact their local fixture representative to identify product lines that carry the fixture control. Visit www.lutron.com/vive for more information.
