Cree launches self-programming wireless lighting control system

LED chip, lamp and lighting maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced SmartCast Technology, which is claimed to be the first self-programming wireless lighting control system that reduces energy consumption by more than 70% (compared with traditional fluorescent luminaires) at half the cost of traditional lighting controls. The firm says that luminaires enabled with SmartCast Technology remove the initial and ongoing complexity associated with lighting controls, allowing users to realize the full savings potential of lighting controls.

“Commercial lighting customers have resisted installing traditional lighting controls because of excess cost and complexity, and the majority of those who have installed controls stop using them as intended after the first year because they’re difficult to maintain,” says Norbert Hiller, executive VP, lighting. “SmartCast Technology eliminates these barriers to adoption and delivers the enormous benefit of significantly greater energy cost savings,” he claims.

Featuring the firm’s OneButton Setup, luminaires enabled with SmartCast Technology create their own secure network, learn about their environment and form groups to maximize savings, all with the push of a single button, says Cree. SmartCast eliminates the extra design time, wires and set up time often associated with controls systems, providing the simplest controls system available, it adds.

SmartCast Technology is available in CR Series LED troffers, CS Series linear luminaires and KR Series downlights, as well as via a 0-10V interface for control of existing dimmable LED luminaires. As well as saving energy and money, these features are compliant with emerging code requirements throughout the USA and Canada, says Cree.
