Surveyor LCP500 Load Control Panel With Daylight Harvesting Reduces Energy Costs

Venstar's Surveyor Energy Management System (EMS) has saved retail chain customers millions in energy costs at more than 22,000 locations across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. Small-box retailers typically save 25 percent to 35 percent of their energy costs, which translates to tens of millions of dollars in savings each year and dramatic reductions in CO2 emissions.

Compatible with Venstar's Surveyor Energy Management System (EMS), Venstar's new Surveyor LCP500 Load Control Panel with daylight harvesting and networked sensors includes an intuitive new touch panel that delivers an enhanced user-friendly experience and the ability to achieve additional energy savings. The LCP500 uses daylight harvesting of outside light to reduce interior lighting by the use of automatic lighting control. Networked sensors identify the levels of outside light coming in through the windows and adjust lights accordingly. Daylight harvesting delivers a significant decrease in the lighting needed, which greatly reduces energy costs. Surveyor LCP500 Load Control Panel is Title 24 compliant and UL approved.

Surveyor EMS empowers small-box retailers and other multi-location businesses to remotely monitor, control and manage their HVAC, lighting/electrical and mechanical systems in all their stores, giving them unprecedented visibility into their energy usage. Designed specifically for small-box retail chains with hundreds to thousands of locations, Surveyor EMS provides powerful energy management tools for energy and facility managers responsible for managing multi-location companies.
