TORONTO — EcoGrid Technologies, a Toronto-based energy equipment and solutions company, recently worked with LHM Technologies Inc. of Woodbridge, Ont. to replace facility lighting in its 50,000 square foot manufacturing space, where they produce components for the aerospace, military, automotive, oil and gas and nuclear energy sectors.
EcoGrid Tech has created a system using microwave sensors that allows them to automate industrial spaces requiring higher egress protection and safety standards which standard PIR technologies were not able to access, such as environments requiring protection from inert gases, chemicals and dust, indicates a release, adding after the installation of the custom engineered wireless solution, LHM is now experiencing three times more light on the production floor at more than 85 per cent efficiency.
“We are proud to have helped LHM fit its production facility with our state-of-the-art wireless solution,” said George Filtsos, president of EcoGrid Technologies, in a statement. “Using our exclusive cutting-edge Bluetooth controls to automate illumination levels base on usage has resulted in more than 600,000 kWh of annual consumption savings from lighting alone for LHM. This project will pay for itself in a few months, not years”
