Salt Lake City, UT/Anaheim, CA – February 8, 2017

At Strategies in Light 2017 (Anaheim, February 28 – March 2, 2017), EnOcean, world leader in energy harvesting wireless technology, will present self powered wireless LED control for multiple wireless protocols. At booth #107, the company will be exhibiting their extensive Dolphin portfolio, including self-powered switches, sensors, actuators, and LED fixture controllers. These solutions enable sophisticated lighting control including daylight harvesting and task tuning.

“Today, lighting is understood to be the key factor for building electrical energy usage, and for the well-being and productivity of the occupants. Wireless controls coupled with LED updrades provide low installation costs while offering flexibility to expand the system at any time. Self-powered wireless solutions are extremely attractive as they eliminate the burden of down time and battery maintenance cost. In close collaboration with EnOcean Alliance partners and industry leading lighiting and controls manufacturers, we continue to develop new self-powered, maintenance-free applications for modern lighting control,” says Neil Cannon, President, EnOcean Inc.

Comprehensive wireless control

EnOcean wireless technology is optimized for ultra-low power communication, allowing the self-powered, sensors and switches. EnOcean’s LED control portfolio is based on the 902 MHz frequency, which delivers maximum point to point communication distances within buildings. These wireless controls solutions can be easily 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 – completely without 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 US 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. This recognition by DLC is further confirmation of the cutting edge, highly efficient capabilities of self-powered wireless Easyfit controls.

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 wireless and self-powered LED controls for Bluetooth® lighting control systems in 2.4 GHz. The Easyfit Bluetooth® switches are available in two different design versions – Easyfit US design (ESRPB/EDRPB) and Easyfit European design (EWSSB/EWSDB). The self-powered and wireless Easyfit switches with Near Field Communication (NFC) allow simple or complex lighting scenes and effects, and enables simple, flexible installation of lighting applications. The wireless Easyfit Bluetooth® switches are maintenance-free due to no batteries, freely positionable and allow flexible control as well as intuitive usage.

Combined with Bluetooth® lighting systems from Casambi, Silvair and Xicato, Easyfit wall switches offer lighting installers the benefits of maintenance-free, freely easily positionable and ready-to-use solutions, allowing flexible control as well as intuitive usage.

Maintenance-free 2.4 GHz zigbee lighting solutions

EnOcean partnered with Philips, a world leading manufacturer of lighting applications, 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).
