Convia’s energy infrastructure can automatically adjust lighting and temperature in different zones based on building use and feedback from sensors.
Convia, a Herman Miller company, manufactures a modular energy-management platform that integrates lighting, switches, occupancy sensors, timers, and other devices and links them to sophisticated controls capable of monitoring and adjusting a building’s overall energy performance. Now partnered with Wiremold, a Legrand company, Convia’s system consists mainly of Wiremold’s “Convia-enabled” modular wiring platform and components along with Convia’s control technology.
Power for the system is supplied under raised floors via movable wiring components called whips, which can be moved as building use changes. (A simpler, more flexible overhead version of the system is also available through Herman Miller.) Modular sensor interfaces and fully dimmable switches simplify the installation and programming of occupancy and lighting sensors and other “plug-and-play” devices.
