Tridonic and Casambi: Versatile solution for wireless light management
Partnership fosters innovative control technology
Tridonic and Casambi have teamed up to develop a new innovative wireless light management solution. Tridonic’s basicDIM Wireless system based on Casambi’s Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology offers an interconnected and interoperable solution for the hassle-free wireless connectivity of luminaires.
Wireless light management opens a myriad of new possibilities for all parties involved in installing a new lighting system. The luminaire manufacturer, the installer to the building operator and the end user, will all benefit from the flexibility and versatility that wireless technologies offer. Also, existing lighting infrastructures can be easily updated and fitted with additional features.
Technology partnership results in portfolio for complete solution
Tridonic, a world-leading supplier of lighting technology, and Casambi, a pioneer in wireless lighting controls, have partnered to develop an innovative wireless light management solution. The partnership culminates in Tridonic’s basicDIM Wireless range of interoperable devices consisting of LED drivers, communication modules, sensors, a user-interface as well as software in the form of the 4remote BT App.
“In the last couple of years, Casambi’s wireless lighting control technology based on Bluetooth Low Energy has become established as a leading platform for innovative controls. Pairing Casambi’s technology with our long-standing expertise in the development of lighting components has resulted in a flexible and versatile new system that benefits every player in the lighting industry. Close cooperation in the development and testing phases between our companies has proven extremely fertile and we are proud to now market the new system”, explains Bert Tuyt, Senior Director Global Systems at Tridonic.
“Wireless interconnection and interoperability are the foundations of our technology. We are proud to have found a partner in Tridonic that uses these pillars to develop and market Casambi Ready solutions. The devices and software developed bring multiple benefits to luminaire manufacturers, installers, building operators and most importantly end users who are always the top priority in our and Tridonic’s development processes”, comments Casambi’s founder Timo Pakkala.
basicDIM Wireless brings added value to lighting installations
Tridonic’s basicDIM Wireless technology is the ideal solution for wireless luminaire communication without requiring any additional wiring or construction. Conveniently controlled via Bluetooth, on/off switching as well as dimming functions are just as simple as grouping luminaires and creating lighting settings. Ideally suitable for office buildings or classrooms, each room and zone benefits from the system’s easy-to-use and multi-functional intelligence.
To exploit the benefits of the basicDIM Wireless system, luminaires can either be fitted with Casambi Ready Tridonic LED drivers or later be easily upgraded with basicDIM Wireless Modules. Interoperable basicDIM Wireless Sensors are the ideal addition to the system as they enable daylight management and presence detection. The Casambi Ready basicDIM Wireless technology enables energy savings in open-plan offices, design flexibility for conference rooms, personalised lighting for offices and the control to illuminate spaces with a soft or energising light.
