OSRAM SYLVANIA has launched the ENCELIUM® Wireless Energy Management System (EMS), a portfolio of hardware solutions designed to expand lighting control to hard-to-reach locations and simplify and lower the overall cost of installation. ENCELIUM is a scalable and simple lighting control system that enables owners to elevate the cost-effectiveness and occupant experience of their lighting spaces with just a click of the mouse. The new ENCELIUM Wireless EMS is based on the ZigBee® Pro network stack and includes wireless managers, sensors, control modules for attaching to light fixtures, and wallstations, and is being installed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, a $10 billion integrated global health enterprise in Pennsylvania.
The new ENCELIUM Wireless EMS integrates with both wireless and wired ENCELIUM devices and the ENCELIUM Polaris 3D® lighting management software, the core element of the ENCELIUM system that facilitates the commissioning, usage and data analysis of the lighting installation. Developed in North America and accessible anytime, anywhere via an Internet connection, the new Polaris 3D 3.5.2 software is even easier to use and offers additional flexibility for buildings to comply with local building codes, offer a comfortable work environment for employees, reduce their lighting energy consumption by as much as 75 percent, and qualify for several points toward LEED certification. The 3D color gradient visualization shows how efficient an installation is and immediately reports the savings achieved.
