SaeligSaelig - Thumb-drive-sized Temperature, Humidity and Dew Point USB Sensor

Pittsford, NY: EL-USB-RT is a new USB- connected ambient sensor. When plugged into the USB port of a PC installed with the purpose designed software, EL-USB-RT measures temperature and relative humidity from -10 to +60C (+14 to +140 F) and 0 to 100%RH. The PC displays the temperature, humidity and dew point (the temperature at which water vapor present in the air begins to condense) in real-time and saves it to a file which can store up to 7 day's worth of data. This data file is overwritten at the beginning of each new logging session. The software provides the option for the user to save the data file permanently to the hard-drive. Temperature, relative humidity and dew point can be graphed, printed and exported to other applications.

WattstopperDimming photosensor uses groundbreaking technology to save energy and ensure convenient commissioning and operation

SANTA CLARA, CA  April 2008   Watt Stopper/Legrand has developed the LS-301 Dimming Photosensor, carefully combining features for optimal performance and ease of installation and use. At the heart of the device is the groundbreaking sliding setpoint control algorithm pioneered by Watt Stopper/Legrand. The LS-301 also employs a handheld setup remote to facilitate quick and convenient commissioning. The sliding setpoint algorithm allows the controller to compensate for the disparate spatial distribution of daylight and electric light. By having two different setpoints for day and night, the target setpoint changes based on the current light level conditions.
