Shop superintendent decided to test my step-up game, promoted me to foreman of lighting crew on an extensive single-floor remodel. It's looking like a doozy, the Lutron spec document is 120 pages long and surprisingly bare bones. I spent my first day just checking device specs against our prints and the low voltage one- line and I've already got four RFIs going with my General. I haven't messed with a Lutron system this extensive before, it looks like full California T24 in the heart of Texas. Any tips on things to watch out for, best practices?
I've got one question (so far) that may be the biggest of the bunch. Everything is dimmable, some zones switch-dimmable and daylight-sensing combined, and that *includes* the emergency lighting. I've installed 0-10v dimmer emergency transfer relay systems before in limited areas as standalone installs, but this project doesn't call for any. Even though it clearly identifies emerg lights as switchef & dimmed. Does the Lutron system integrate separate emergency circuits with normal power ltg circuits? Near as I can tell, the Energi Savr units only switch every circuit to full bright when the sense wire opens, doesn't act as transfer relay. If we have to order emerg transfer relays, that'll be about a dozen of 'em just on the number of switch zones we would need to cover.
