Eaton recently announced a collaboration with NuLEDs™, Inc. aimed at making buildings smarter and seamlessly securely connected. The two companies will go to market with a joint product offering including Eaton’s complete portfolio of PoE-enabled light-emitting diode (LED) luminaires and NuLEDs’ drivers, software, sensors and keypads.
The collaboration has already been active in delivering several projects with Eaton’s PoE-enabled Metalux Encounter™ luminaire featuring WaveStream™ LED technology and NuLEDs’ Single Packet Illumination Control Environment solution. The lighting network will include NuLEDs’ NuSPICE™ protocol, allowing for simple communication to its sensors, wall controllers and other devices on the network. Both buildings will include NuLEDs’ PoE modules, the SpiceBox™, which converts PoE power to drive LEDs and sensors.
The NuLEDs SpiceBox also assigns a unique Media Access Control (MAC) address to each device, giving each fixture or sensor the ability to broadcast its location and receive network information and control commands.
