Austrian company Tridonic has announced the commercial availability of new smart lighting systems for the U.S. LED lighting market.
The company said its basicDIM Wireless technology is an ideal solution for updating conventional lighting without requiring any additional wiring or construction. This technology is controlled via Bluetooth and is suitable for office buildings or classrooms.
The Casambi Ready technology enables energy savings in open-plan offices, design flexibility for conference rooms, personalized lighting for one- to two-person offices and the control to illuminate spaces with a soft or energizing light, Trodonic said.
The company highlighted that the basis for the wireless light management is formed by the luminaire with the LED module, a driver and one of the basicDIM Wireless modules. Optional sensor integration allows for automated adjustment of the lighting. Luminaire control is performed with Tridonic’s intuitive user interface or with the free 4remote BT app on an Android or iOS smartphone, the companys said.
The basicDIM Wireless 0-10V 2CH is equipped with two configurable 0(1)-10V output channels and is able to handle different applications like Tunable White, direct/indirect luminaires and dimmable luminaires. Tridonic’s two Casambi Ready wireless modules and 5DP sensor are the core of Tridonic’s basicDIM Wireless portfolio. Due to their compact size, both the passive and constant-voltage basicDIM Wireless modules can be easily integrated into existing lighting installations.
“For Bluetooth-based communication between luminaires, Tridonic bolstered its basicDIM Wireless portfolio by introducing two new Casambi Ready wireless modules and 5DP sensor,” said Paul Montesino, Product Director Americas, Tridonic USA. “Casambi Ready control technology allows for versatile interaction with all the luminaires in a room, either by using the free 4remote BT app or the user interface. The basicDIM Wireless modules can be easily and flexibly integrated into existing systems and with the addition of sensors, can offer considerable potential energy savings for offices and classrooms.”
The firm’s new offering in the U.S. market includes:
-Constant-voltage basicDIM Wireless module PWM CV 4CH. Up to four channels can be switched and dimmed using Bluetooth With this module, existing LED strips can be easily dimmed without the need for additional DALI lines or drivers. The maximum output current is 6 Amps, which can be split among the four channels.
-Passive basicDIM Wireless module 0-10V 2CH. This passive module can be integrated in luminaires that are not equipped with basicDIM Wireless drivers. Using Bluetooth technology, the wireless module connects the luminaires without the need for an external gateway. It can also be linked to the new 5DP basicDIM Wireless sensor to detect room occupancy and ambient light in network control.
-5DP basicDIM Wireless sensor. The new wireless sensor offers daylight-dependent lighting control and room occupancy detection. It has been designed for network control of open-plan offices, training and presentation rooms as well as corridors, passageways and garages.
Tridonic develops scalable solutions that enable new business models for lighting manufacturers, building managers, systems integrators, planners and many other types of customers.
