The Encelium Extend Networked Light Management System (LMS) is designed for commercial spaces that seek advanced features and functionality including: —Web-accessible system control —Advanced energy reporting features and other data analytics —Building automation system integration The table below illustrates the key advantages to using a “smart lighting” platform as compared to just LED lighting and basic lighting controls. The Encelium Extend System enables you to optimize illumination and maximize energy savings by combining smart lighting controls and plug load power management strategies.
—Intraluminaire: DEXAL™ (Data Exchange for Advanced Lighting) enables individual luminaires to become smart nodes on a networked light management system by enabling two-way communication of luminaire-level data including power consumption, temperature profile, operating hours and diagnostics.
—Wireless: The Encelium Extend System leverages a mesh network based on ZigBee® standards enabling wireless communication between hardware devices. It is ideal for sensors and wallstations that must be placed in hard-to-reach locations.
—Wired: The GreenBus II® wiring protocol uses a daisy chain scheme and supplies data and power to low voltage control devices within the Encelium Extend System.
—Hybrid: Combine wired (GreenBus II protocol) and wireless (ZigBee) hardware components and communications in one Encelium Extend System solution.
—DALI: Native DALI support in our wired GreenBus II® architecture to control DALI-certified LED drivers.
The Encelium Extend System integrates with any BACnet-compatible building automation systems such as HVAC, fire and security, via BACnet/IP. The Encelium Extend System operates autonomously while lighting status, lighting levels and energy usage are all shared and may be controlled via BACnet. Key highlights:
—Report daylight readings —BACnet switching and dimming control
—Load shedding control over the lighting load
—Emergency notification to Encelium Extend System, through a BACnet connected fire alarm, to turn all lights on
—Integrate occupancy information to HVAC
—Supports centralized and distributed architectures
