Lutron Outdoor Innovations
Lutron GRAFIK 5000 controls exterior lighting throughout the park by means of an astronomic timeclock, which uses the latitude and longitude of the park’s location to calculate both sunrise and sunset, while also taking daylight savings time into consideration. Further, light sensors will adjust for overcast autumn and winter conditions, as well as fog or snow.
There are many other benefits to be gained by integrating Lutron lighting control systems. Dimming and switching technologies enable a new degree of efficiency, increasing environmental benefits while reducing energy costs. Legoland has dimmed overall lighting in their shops and restaurants by 10%. This reduction is undetectable to the eye, and serves to double the lifespan of over 6,000 light bulbs throughout the park, which reduces maintenance costs as well.
