Lutron Lighting System Replacement

EcoSystem is Lutron’s end-to-end lighting control method for LEDs that addresses individual fixtures and status feedback from LED drivers.

The solution is comprised of high-performance ballasts and LED drivers, simple wired and wireless controls, superior sensors, and intuitive user interfaces.

Unfortunately, Lutron no longer sells or supports EcoSystem ballasts or controls, so replacing or modernizing your lighting system is key for your facility’s maintenance plan. Paratus can help.

As an authorized Lutron partner, Paratus will help plan and implement your facility’s lighting control system replacement or upgrade process.

Did you know your EcoSystem ballast is part of a digitally designed system?

As a facilities or operations manager, you know the Lutron EcoSystem product line is a powerful, resilient, and customizable lighting control system typically used in schools, universities, and commercial office buildings.

However, EcoSystem ballasts and controls are no longer supported by Lutron, so replacement parts and official support will become extremely difficult to procure without a modernization plan for your lighting system. EcoSystem ballasts each are uniquely addressable and need to be upgraded along with a control system that can manage addressable lights.

A modern lighting system by Paratus creates a pleasant environment, cuts energy and operation costs, and improves maintenance schedules. We can retrofit your current system using the C-Flex Retrofit Kit and a whole EcoSystem redesign using the most powerful, reliable modern lighting technology.

As an authorized Lutron partner, Paratus addresses your needs, budget, and timeline to develop a plan to replace or upgrade your Lutron lighting system and controls. Upgrading or replacing will save you time and money now and in the future.
