MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton expands its line of architectural wall box dimmers and fan speed controls with the Renoir II family of multi-voltage 120-277 VAC, 60Hz rated box-mounted lighting controls. Designed to support virtually all common load types and configurations, Renoir II combines robust performance features with elegant styling to meet a wide range of commercial applications, including multi-location architectural dimming environments requiring up to five-way control operation.

"Renoir II is an important addition to our line of architectural lighting controls as the line's universal voltage dimming control capabilities and design flexibility make the devices one of the most versatile dimming lines available today," said Richard Westfall, vice president and general manager, Leviton Lighting & Energy Solutions. "Renoir II is an ideal dimming solution for a wide range of commercial applications, including conference rooms, ball rooms, restaurants and open areas of buildings where lighting controls and energy reduction are critical initiatives."

Renoir II dimmers afford reliable, solid-state control while saving energy, extending bulb life and reducing maintenance costs. The line's three models include preset slides with either a thin or standard heat sink, or a rotary control with standard heat sink. An engineered thin heat sink combines performance and aesthetics to transfer heat away from electrical components while minimizing the visibility of the heat sink, making it ideal for applications requiring an aesthetically pleasing installation without compromising efficient heat dissipation. The controls also feature Super Silent Technology (SST) to consolidate fully variable and fully quiet fan speed controls into a single unit.
