Power takes on a new dimension
Today, lighting control, or smart lighting, provides a growing list of advantages for your designs. They range from further energy savings to adjustable light levels and selectable ambient color.
Implementing smart lighting
Typically, light management features are integrated into decentralized or centralized control systems. Choosing the latter requires a wired or wireless communication system. Microcontrollers are used in both the master and slave of a smart lighting system to enable:
- Connectivity to bus systems, such as DALI, DMX, KNX, etc.
- Connectivity to sensors
- Programming of intelligent light features tailored to your requirements
Occupancy sensors, especially radar sensors, enable energy savings as well as other features that go beyond lighting control. Furthermore, additional types of sensors are being added to the lighting infrastructure to facilitate a growing list of features. The current boom in smart lighting and communication is causing data security to become more and more important. By choosing hardware-based security solutions, you can achieve a very high level of security in lighting control applications.
