Sensor Switch Introduces the Refrigerator Aisle Sensor Kit.

Occupancy Sensor Increases Energy Efficiency in Retail Refrigerator/Freezer Cases

WALLINGFORD, Conn. -- Sensor Switch, the industry leader in lighting control products and innovation, has announced the introduction of its Refrigerator Aisle Occupancy Sensor Kit (model # RA-KIT), which utilizes a specialized occupancy sensor to increase energy efficiency in refrigerator/freezer units used in retail environments. The Refrigerator Aisle Kit contains everything required for both detecting occupants within an aisle of commercial-style refrigerator/freezer cases and controlling the cases' internal LED lighting.

The RA-KIT possesses several features distinctly engineered for the retail freezer aisle application. The sensor's unique, but unobtrusive, design utilizes a removable mounting plate, enabling simple installation, and RJ-45 style connections that make wiring clean and easy. The sensor also employs Passive Infrared (PIR) technology to detect motion from occupants within its specialized view pattern. Additionally, to assist with scheduling relamping, the sensor has a built-in lamp runtime counter and switch counter, both of which can be read out via the unit's LED.

According to Sensor Switch President Brian Platner, the RA-KIT represents a significant opportunity for retailers to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs, and demonstrate concern for the environment without compromising customer convenience. "The RA-KIT was designed to meet the specific needs of retailers who depend on refrigeration to sell products, and are looking for ways to increase energy efficiency without negatively impacting their customers' shopping experience," says Platner. "Our custom-designed sensor lens enables detection of customers as they advance down an aisle in time to turn on the lights inside the refrigerator. This saves energy by keeping lighting off during quiet periods."

Since its founding in 1987, Sensor Switch has been the industry leader in lighting control innovations, focusing on engineering advanced products and technology that cost-effectively delivers energy efficiency, as well as convenience. Our experience and wide breadth of occupancy sensors, daylighting controls, and our nLight control system ensure we can provide reliable solutions for any application or building type. All Sensor Switch products are proudly engineered and manufactured in the USA at the company headquarters in Wallingford, Connecticut.
