Leviton 'daylight harvesting' wins honor Credit: John Dunn

Melville-based Leviton’s new “daylight harvesting” lighting control system has been chosen for a trade magazine’s “Top Products of 2012” list.

The magazine, Building Operating Management, says the company’s SectorFlex Intelligent Digital Lighting Control System line is a favorite among its readers. The list will be published in the January issue.

Most readers of the magazine are managers of commercial buildings.

Richard Westfall, a Leviton vice president, said the SectorFlex line is part of its commitment to supplying “the latest and most effective technologies for lighting control and energy savings.”

It uses such methods as scheduling, occupancy sensing and daylight harvesting (a responsive electric-light system that reduces wattage when it senses sunshine). It can be installed in a single room or a major campus.

Privately-held Leviton, with about 7,000 employees including 450 in Melville, has a product portfolio of more than 25,000 electrical and energy management devices for homes and businesses. It also makes charging stations for the Toyota Prius and Ford Focus electric cars.
