Osram announced on Wednesday the ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked Light Management System (LMS) for commercial interior and building site spaces that seek the features and functionality of an advanced lighting control solution combined with a platform for the Internet of Things (IoT).
The ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked LMS offers advanced energy reporting, data analytics, building automation system integration and web-accessible control. In addition, a number of recent innovations by Osram are compatible with the ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked LMS and expand system functionality, including the Wireless Site Lighting Control (WSLC) module, DEXAL (Data Exchange (interface) for Advanced Lighting) technology, and the newly launched SensiLUM Wireless Integrated Sensor.
These technologies enable the ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked LMS to create the technology infrastructure necessary for smart lighting and other smart building and IoT applications.
The SensiLUM wireless integrated sensor enables occupancy detection, daylight harvesting and individual or group control of luminaires. The SensiLUM sensor offers 0-10V dimming or DEXAL technology control options. It fits into an industry standard ½-inch knockout in any luminaire.
DEXAL technology enables bi-directional communication and power between the LED driver and SensiLUM wireless integrated sensors or Connected Lighting Modules (CLMs) by Osram.
DEXAL technology communicates exact luminaire-specific data including power consumption, temperature profile, operating hours and diagnostics to connected light management systems. The WSLC module expands the ENCELIUM EXTEND system control space to outside areas of a building including entrances, adjacent walkways and parking areas as well as private drives and approach ways.
“The ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked LMS makes it possible for facility managers and building owners to control both interior and exterior perimeters of building sites with one comprehensive system and user-friendly interface,” said Tom Shottes, CEO of Osram Digital Lighting Systems, Americas Region. “We have built out the functionality of the system to include our latest technology innovations, enabling customers to leverage the ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked LMS as their technology infrastructure for entry into smart building and IoT applications. The ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked LMS enables customers to continually optimize their lighting inside and outside of their facilities, and creates a sensor-rich smart network for applications beyond smart lighting. Existing ENCELIUM Networked LMS sites can be upgraded quickly and easily.”
Existing customers of the ENCELIUM Networked LMS can upgrade to the ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked LMS which will be demonstrated at LIGHTFAIR International (LFI) 2018 in Chicago.
