Due to the discontinuation of the Lutron L3DA series Hi-Lume EcoSystem/3-wire dimming drivers Acuity Brands' architectural downlighting brands are making some changes to their product lineup.
Drivers with 3-wire fluorescent dimming option are no longer available from Lutron and the replacement drivers are only EcoSystem dimming capable. These replacement drivers do not have the ability to dim via 3-wire fluorescent controls.
In order to make this distinction clear to our customers, all Acuity Brands' architectural downlights (Aculux, Indy, and Gotham) will be using a new option suffix (ECOD). This new ECOD option uses Lutron LDE series drivers with Lutron Ecosystem dimming capability only.
As part of this change, the following options will be discontinued in the following weeks as inventory of the old drivers is used up:
- Gotham EVO driver option “ECOS3” Lutron® Hi-Lume® 3-wire or EcoSystem® driver. Minimum dimming level 1%
- Aculux driver option “ECOS3” Lutron Hi-Lume A series 3-wire with EcoSystem, 1% dim
- Indy driver option “PD” Lutron Ecosystem Dimming Driver
Updated product spec sheets showing the above changes will be posted on www.AcuityBrands.com as the discontinued driver inventories are used up.
