The company claims the system allows specifiers, architects and facility managers to design true smart buildings
Global high-tech lighting firm Osram has announced a new wireless site lighting control (WSLC) module for its Encelium Extend networked light management system.
The new capability allows control of outside areas, including attached walkways, parking areas and private roadways to support smart building initiatives.
According to Osram, it is the only light management system that can gather data from a range of lighting component suppliers to tailor lighting usage with changing requirements, making any building interior and exterior lighted spaces fit for the future.
“Osram’s new wireless site lighting control module allows specifiers, architects and facility managers to take another step forward in their quest to design true smart buildings,” said Tom Shottes, head of Osram Digital Systems, Americas region.
“Extending Encelium’s control features to outdoor spaces allows our customers to save money by operating one complete system while continuing to benefit from the convenience and safety features they are accustomed to for their internal lighting systems.”
By extending the capabilities of the system, the WSLC module provides wireless lighting controls capability. It installs on top of a light pole via an ANSI C136.41-compliant, 7-pin twist-lock connector.
The WSLC is individually addressable via the Encelium Extend system and can switch luminaires on-off/ via an integrated high current relay, dim luminaires equipped with 0-10V dimming drivers or ballasts, Dexal or Dali dimming drivers or ballasts and has an input for an external occupancy sensor.
The WSLC module is now available in the Americas region.
