LED Control System Simplifies Wireless Setup

Feb. 27, 2015
EnOcean has launched a complete LED control system that includes a family of LED controllers to support instantaneous and simplified wireless control.

While LEDs represent the latest advancements in lighting, utilizing them to their fullest potential involves further simplification while complying with increasingly rigorous standards. To enable OEMs with the basic building blocks, EnOcean has launched a complete wireless LED control system. Leveraging the company’s portfolio of self-powered wireless switches and occupancy and light level sensors, the LED control system combines the former with LED fixture controllers and commissioning tools, simplifying installation and setup.

The LED controller family includes a transceiver module (TCM 330U) for integration into drivers and modules. Also featured are LED fixture/zone controllers with relay and 0-10 V output (LEDR) and without relay (LEDD). The controllers operate at 902 MHz; they can be used for dimming control of a single feature or a zone of multiple, daisy-chained fixtures. They also support daylight harvesting scenarios, occupancy control, and manual dimming processing data. Their compact size facilitates flexible installation inside of, or next to, electrical boxes and fixtures, enabling them to be wired out of sight using standard practices.

Users can connect the LEDR or LEDD controller to a central controller or gateway to implement lighting control into building automation systems. The transceiver module can also be implemented into existing controllers and includes the firmware for instantaneous wireless control. The controls further provide a simplified user interface for the configuration and linking of devices: With two buttons, they can link and unlink sensors and switches, dim up and down manually, and set the minimum dimming value.

To configure more advanced settings, EnOcean offers Navigan, a wireless remote commissioning software. This enables users to link devices and set parameters—such as ramp speeds, dimming levels, and integrated repeater—from a laptop computer. The controllers can then be aligned over the air with on-site requirements, define properties, and settings. Navigan also offers the ability to edit and store projects.
