EnOcean highlights self-powered wireless LED control at Strategies in Light 2016
The Comprehensive 'Zero Batteries,' Wireless LED control Portfolio Sees High Traction With Major North American Lighting Companies; Enabling Simple Commissioning, Intelligent Local Control, or Seamlessly Integrating With a Building Automation System
SALT LAKE CITY, UT and SANTA CLARA, CA - At this year's Strategies in Light show (March 1-3, 2016, Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara; Booth #818), EnOcean will present its comprehensive wireless LED control system for intelligent and energy-efficient lighting control. The portfolio is based upon self-powered, wireless sensors and switches, combined with LED fixture controllers. The "zero batteries solution" enables all kinds of sophisticated lighting control including daylight harvesting and task tuning. For a significantly simplified installation, EnOcean also presents the Navigan™ Wireless Commissioner, an easy-to-use software tool for remote configuration.
Since EnOcean introduced its wireless LED control portfolio to the market at Strategies in Light 2015, it has been established as one of the leading wireless solutions in this field. It attracted many major OEM market players that included the comprehensive product range in their offering.
At this year's Strategies in Light, the company Inventronics for example will show its latest developments: intelligent LED drivers that can dim to dark and support the EnOcean LEDD Fixture/Zone Controller.
"LED technology redefines the demands and possibilities of lighting control. Today, light is a key factor for energy savings, well-being and work productivity. Wireless controls can cover all of these requirements at low installation costs while offering the highest flexibility in expanding the system at any time. Self-powered wireless solutions are even more attractive as they eliminate the burden of battery maintenance costs and down time," says Nathan Lee, VP of America Sales, EnOcean Inc.
Comprehensive wireless control
The EnOcean technology is optimized for ultra-low power communication, allowing the use of self-powered, wireless sensors and switches. EnOcean's OEM LED control portfolio is based on the 902 MHz frequency, which delivers substantial range in buildings. Being highly flexible and requiring no maintenance, service, or battery change, the solutions are ideally suited to retrofit existing buildings with sophisticated LED control including daylight harvesting and task tuning.
The complete LED control portfolio consists of LEDR and LEDD Fixture/Zone Controllers, self-powered, wireless light switches, occupancy and light level sensors as well as the Navigan™ remote commissioning software. OEMs can also create EnOcean-enabled products by using the extensive line of EnOcean RF modules.
Remote set-up and commissioning
The LEDD and LEDR controllers are both supported by Navigan™ Wireless Commissioner (NWC 300U) and the Navigan™ Software. Via this remote commissioning interface, settings such as thresholds, dimming levels, ramp speeds, task tuning, or timers can be changed wirelessly. Employing a Windows-based laptop equipped with the remote commissioning tool, an installer can locate wireless devices throughout the facility, logically connect the controller to switches and sensors, and configure settings in the controller over the air - completely without physical access, saving time and costs.
