Occupancy sensors are the most common lighting control used in buildings today. Infrared sensors detect temperature changes in a room, and work well where the entire room is within the sensor's field of view. Even though lamp running life may be somewhat shortened by increased switching due to occupancy sensors, the overall chronological life of lamps is usually extended by the reduced daily burn hours, and the energy savings csn be significant.
USA Technologies' VendingMiser®, with its occupancy-based technology, can reduce the power consumption of a cold drink vending machine by an average of 46%. And, the SnackMiser™ reduces the amount of electricity used by non-refrigerated snack vending machines.
