Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc., a member of the Panasonic Group, has added Zigbee wireless sensors and adapters to their product line.
Craig DiLouie, LC, CLCP recently interviewed Scott Ziegenfus, CEM, CLEP, CDSM, GGP, GPCP, LEED AP, Architect, Systems Manager, Government and Industry Relations at Hubbell Lighting, for an article for the January 2019 of ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR, the official publication of NECA. The topic: why and how lighting professionals should talk to IT departments.
“As the lighting industry attempts to morph from its conventional role of illumination and become more of a provider of smart networks that collect data through chips and sensors embedded in the lighting infrastructure, it should focus its sales efforts on IT groups rather than on the customary facilities departments,” Mark Halper writes for LEDs Magazine.
Hubbell Control Solutions recently announced it has launched a new Bluetooth® Bridge with Real Time Clock (“NXBTC”) for wireless commissioning of NX Distributed Intelligence™ devices. The NXBTC replaces the former BTR Bluetooth® Bridge.
“While the majority of installations today are distributed high voltage (between 110V and 347V), the emergence of solid-state lighting technology has brought into question whether this is the most practical and efficient way to feed future lighting systems … In general illumination application, there are currently two core approaches to operating luminaires directly from low voltage DC power. Emerge Alliance 24VDC distributed, and Power over Ethernet (PoE). The two approaches employ distinctly different control approaches.”
This educational video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association at the 2018 LIGHTFAIR event, introduces the building industry to Hubbell’s approach to distributed intelligence lighting control.
