Echelon Corp. recently introduced a new product in its expanding multi-application platform for a connected smart lighting infrastructure. The new CLP 4000 is a next-generation controller that includes open-standard sensor inputs. This lets customers integrate Internet of Things applications that can improve safety and comfort, such as white tuning, safe adaptive lighting, dynamic traffic analysis and incident lighting control. The new controller and related central management system software support Echelon’s strategy to foster safer and more comfortable cities through connected lighting.
The CLP 4000 includes faster and smarter power line enabled communication technology, multiple lighting control options and native support for advanced sensors. Cities and enterprises can now deploy a lighting control system that offers the following advanced capabilities and benefits:
• Energy savings with adaptive dimming of lights and identification of day burners
• Maintenance efficiencies with predictive failure notification and lamp type identification
• Safety enhancements such as on-demand light, call box and crosswalk integration and school crosswalk flashers
• Comfort and convenience improvements including white tuning, traffic counting and parking availability
For example, city officials can integrate dimming and white tuning capabilities with emergency call box systems to assist first responders by improving visibility, quickly and dynamically. They would also have the flexibility to adjust crosswalk and school-zone flashers on the fly for unscheduled early dismissals.
