Conversion of entire lighting control system from a legacy system to new a Lutron QS system. Halogen and incandescent light fittings throughout the vessel were replaced with LED equivalents and transformers. All lighting scenes were reconfigured to allow for new LED’s and their different dimming characteristics. The new Lutron QS system allows for control of all lights from an easy to use iPad or iPhone app, giving the crew a quick way to control individual circuits or whole areas for maintenance or troubleshooting purposes.
