Osram said that its new system also enables IoT applications
Global lighting company Osram has launched a networked light management system (LMS) for commercial interior and building site spaces.
The new system, dubbed Encelium Extend Networked LMS, is an advanced lighting control solution combined with a platform for the internet of things, Osram said. It offers advanced energy reporting, data analytics, building automation system integration and web-accessible control.
Osram highlighted that these innovative technologies enable the Encelium Extend Networked LMS to create the technology infrastructure necessary for smart lighting and other smart building as well as IoT applications.
Osram also said that existing customers of the Encelium Networked LMS can easily upgrade to the new offering.
“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 in the Americas. “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 executive said.
“The new system 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,” he added.
In addition, the system is compatible with a number of recent innovations by Osram including the wireless site lighting control (WSLC) module, DEXAL (Data Exchange for Advanced Lighting) technology, and the recently launched SensiLUM wireless integrated sensor.
The WSLC module expands the Encilum 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.
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.
Meanwhile, the SensiLUM wireless integrated sensor enables occupancy detection, daylight harvesting and individual or group control of luminaires.
