"We decided to convert across our entire dimmer inventory to the JSI CD80SV rolling rack retrofits due to our ongoing problem with modern console compatibility, reliability and high maintenance of the original components on our 20+ year old dimmer racks. During our research we were impressed with the high quality of the JSI components and well thought out engineering enabling quick, painless, and uncomplicated retrofitting. JSI, and Emlight Designs, response to all our inquires during our research were fast, technically informative and always generous in offering support during and after the conversion. The conversion process was smooth, complete and supported in person by Emlight, and easier than we were hoping for. To date we have had zero issues with the upgrades. All console boards have been compatible, zero mystery errors as with the originals, and the end users find them to be the easiest racks they have ever worked with.

Best decision we ever made."

Orange County Convention Centre

AUGUST 31, 2011

CD+M Lighting Design Group recently completed a $1.6M renovation project at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). The OCCC, which has 2.1 million square feet of exhibition space, is comprised of two buildings joined by a sky bridge. This project upgraded the lighting controls system in the West building, which houses 141 meeting rooms has 1.1 million square feet of exhibit space.

Although the OCCC's other major building, the North/South building, was completed in 2003, the West building was built in four phases between 1986 and 1996. CD+M Lighting Design Group was brought in to make recommendations on the West Building's aging lighting control system.

Crediting the maintenance program set up by OCCC technical service supervisor Greg Cyr and his technical staff, CD+M Lighting Design found that the major components of the lighting system were still in good shape, and that there was no need to undergo the costly and time-consuming process of replacing the entire system. CD+M was also able to reuse existing wiring for the 400 new wall stations that would be part of the upgrade.

For the "front end" controls, CD+M used a Lutron Grafik 7000 centralized lighting control system, which allows for BACnet, DMX512, RS232 and contact closures control interfaces for integration with BMS, fire alarm, occupant sensors and other building management and automation systems.

The OCCC has the ability to divide large meeting rooms and exhibit halls into smaller spaces through the use of movable partition wall panels. The Lutron Grafik 7000 system can reconfigure the lighting zones to accommodate these partitioned spaces, while also providing individual lighting controls.

The system runs with built-in astronomical time settings, and a series of OFF presets have been programmed to sweep through the facility after hours to save energy.

Although CD+M replaced the older control electronics of the existing Strand Lighting (66) CD80 SV dimmer racks and (23) DE90 dimmer cabinets with Johnson Systems' CD3000 & DE90 retrofit control electronics, it didn't replace all the dimmer racks and cabinets. By reusing existing equipment, CD+M estimates that the upgrade costs could be kept to only about 15 percent of what it would have cost to replace everything.

The switch provided CD+M with a new controls package that includes a power saving "stand-by" mode that complies with the International Energy Agency's "One Watt Initiative." CD+M also estimated that this upgrade, when compared to the cost of replacing all the dimmer racks and cabinets, could be achieved at

Murphy Lighting Systems joined the project, providing their experience in integration along with a familiarity with the OCCC West Building system. Their scope of work included the inspection, cleaning, repair of the existing dimmer racks and the installation of the new Johnson Systems' CD3000 & DE90 retrofit control modules.

One of our key goals of the OCCC West Building upgrade was to provide the convention center's technical staff with the flexibility to quickly respond to any lighting issues from anywhere in the 4 million square foot West Building, or from offsite. This was achieved via Dialogic JCT media telephony interface card installed in the main lighting system computer local in the facility's server room.

Now the OCCC technical staffs have the ability to control the lighting system at any time through the use of four-digit telephone codes, untethered from the main lighting control system computer.

For more advance setups, the staff can also utilize a laptop equipped with the Lutron Control IT web-browser based software to quickly reconfigure the lighting to suit the client's unique lighting requirements in any of the meeting rooms or exhibit halls.

OCCC can also provide portable 9-button preset stations to give their clients the ability to create and activate different lighting presets during their event.

The new system includes a fiber-optic backbone between major components and an extensive Ethernet network. To satisfy the OCCC network standards & compliance issues, OCCC Database Administrator, Rick LeBlanc, supervised the new network installation.

Those involved in the project included Greg Cyr, OCCC technical service supervisor; Brian Kennedy, OCCC project manager; Rick LeBlanc, OCCC database administrator; Max Brito, Rhodes+Brito Architects; Jim Kelly, Potential Electric project manager; Randy Brown, Lutron project manager; Tom Page, Lutron field service engineer; Shaun Johnson, JOHNSON SYSTEMS INC. president; Chris Murphy, Murphy Lighting Systems president; and Richard Hoyes, CD+M Lighting Design Group.

The gear list follows:

15 - Lutron Grafik 7000P processor panels with BACnet, DMX-512, RS232 and contact closure control interface modules
143 - Lutron 9-button keypad stations
9 - Lutron portable 9-button keypad stations

Simplicity Series
Product Line

MAY 1, 2008 • JOHNSON SYSTEMS INC. (JSI) is pleased to introduce the Simplicity Series of receptacle plates, modules and adaptor plates.

Designed for lighting, audio and data installers and systems integrators, Simplicity Series products are the "lowest cost available in the marketplace" explains Shaun Johnson, President. "Current economic factors are affecting everyone. We found that our existing control receptacle plates, modules and adaptor plate products were 'over designed' aesthetically - making them unnecessarily expensive for such a basic item. All competitive products are expensive and some are very time consuming and tedious for the installer. Most dealers have become frustrated at the escalating costs of these basic accessories and the time to install them contributes to a project - a new installation or as part of a repair/upgrade project. So, we re-designed our receptacle plates, modules and adaptor plate products to be inexpensive, durable, quick to install yet 'technician friendly' and, most importantly, to do the job!"
