Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) and National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP) honoured Cavet Technologies Inc. with the 2010 Ontario Regional Award for New Technology.
Cavet's LumiSmart ILC is compatible with leading fluorescent systems including T5, T8, T12,electronic and magnetic ballasts (single phase or multiphase). The LumiSmart ILC functions on both 50Hz and 60Hz electrical systems and provides automated voltage selection for 100v, 120v, 230/240v, 277v, 347v on 15Amp or 20Amp circuits. A single LumiSmart ILC can manage lighting loads of up to 6.9Kw or up to 130 fluorescent lamps (347v , 20 Amp circuit). The product provides power savings by altering the power waveform and then applies adaptive power factor correction.
Waveform ModificationCavet's LumiSmart ILC is protected by 2 US patents on adaptive waveform modification and 4 additional patents pending approval in the United States, Canada, Europe and other regions. LumiSmart applies waveform modification to the electrical sine wave. By inserting on-off pulses in to the sine wave, LumiSmart is able to dramatically reduce electrical consumption with minimal impact on lighting levels. Depending on the type of ballast that is configured on the circuit, LumiSmart applies different waveform algorithms to provide optimized power savings.
