EnOcean will present its comprehensive self-powered and wireless LED controls for various open standards under the brand Easyfit at Strategies in Light 2018 (Long Beach, CA, February 13-15). At booth #223, visitors can experience lighting solutions using the EnOcean radio standard for North America, including self-powered sensors and switches, actuators, LED fixture controllers, and a commissioning tool. Additionally, the company will be presenting self-powered wireless solutions for Bluetooth® and Zigbee LED lighting systems. Offering these maintenance-free, ready-to-use solutions, EnOcean’s OEM customers are able to focus on the quickly evolving LED market opportunities.
“LEDs are ideally complemented by controls to leverage further energy savings, enable personal control, and meet regulatory requirements,” explains Troy Davis, Sales Director, EnOcean Inc. “Self-powered wireless lighting control solutions based on energy harvesting technology are easy to install, maintenance-free, and allow energy managers to utilize room-level or networked controls. These are even connecting the LEDs to existing Building Automation Systems, while working with significantly reduced installation time and costs.” At this year´s Strategies in Light, EnOcean will be demonstrating cutting-edge solutions with leading industry partners based on open standards.”
Comprehensive wireless controls for EnOcean lighting systems
EnOcean wireless technology is optimized for ultra-low power communication, allowing for self-powered sensors and switches. EnOcean’s Easyfit wireless LED controls portfolio is based on the 902 MHz frequency, which delivers maximum point-to-point communication distances within buildings. These wireless controls solutions can be added to existing buildings during an upgrade to LED lighting.
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. Controls and Lighting manufacturers can create EnOcean-enabled products by using the extensive line of Dolphin by EnOcean RF modules and EnOcean-enabled LED drivers.
Remote set-up and commissioning
The Easyfit product line is supported by Navigan™ Software. Via this commissioning interface, settings such as thresholds, dimming levels, ramp speeds, task tuning, timers, or Title 24-compliant parameters 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—without any physical access to the controllers, saving time and costs.
Easyfit wireless controls portfolio for lighting systems now DLC-qualified
Self-powered wireless Easyfit LED controls from EnOcean are now included in the DLC Qualified Product List (QPL). EnOcean customers across the U.S. are now free to pursue retrofit and new projects that may qualify for higher utility rebates with a QPL solution, all without adding batteries to their wireless installations. Easyfit controls based on EnOcean wireless standard are rapidly expanding their deployments in schools, offices, big box, and warehouse applications.
At Strategies in Light 2018, EnOcean will be demonstrating cutting-edge solutions with leading industry partners based on open standards.
Wireless LED controls for Bluetooth® lighting systems
EnOcean also offers self-powered and wireless LED controls for Bluetooth® lighting control systems in 2.4 GHz. The Easyfit Bluetooth switches are available in two different design versions—Easyfit U.S. design (ESRPB/EDRPB) and Easyfit European design (EWSSB/EWSDB). These Easyfit switches with Near Field Communication (NFC) allow simple or complex lighting scenes and effects, and enable simple, flexible installation of lighting applications. The wireless Easyfit Bluetooth switches are maintenance-free due to no batteries, freely positionable, allow flexible control, and intuitive usage and can be combined with Bluetooth lighting systems from Casambi, Silvair, and Xicato.
Maintenance-free 2.4 GHz Zigbee lighting solutions
EnOcean partnered with Philips to develop self-powered lighting solutions for Zigbee systems on the 2.4 GHz band for use in consumer and commercial LED lighting systems. The Philip’s Hue tap switch, for example, is a self-powered wireless switch, which is the ideal flexible, maintenance-free control for the Philips Hue lighting system for LED consumer lighting.
Visitors to the show can experience self-powered wireless solutions based on energy harvesting technology from EnOcean at the following booths: Brown (Inventronics #900), Fulham CO., Inc. (booth #408), Philips Lighting (booth #636), Mean Well USA Inc. (booth #201), Thomas Research Products, and Norlux (booth #3707).
