GRE Alpha recently entered an ecosystem partnership with German electrical connections and electronic components manufacturer WAGO, a leading supplier of home automation systems and interconnectors. The products partnership between the two organizations will help to simplify and connect lighting systems for building automation.
“We have always strived to make our products as accessible and easy to use and install as possible,” said Richard Fong, Executive Director at GRE Alpha.“Our partnership with WAGO will enable our customers to more rapidly adopt smart lighting solutions and home automation systems with ease and simplicity.”
WAGO offers a variety of products including rail-mounted, pluggable rail-mounted and terminal block systems, connector systems, automation components, interface electronics, marking accessories and software for the building automation, lighting technology, power and process technology, current and energy measurement technology, industry and traffic engineering spaces.
Many of GRE Alpha’s products will be positively impacted by the partnership, specifically the XLD series and DALI dimming module which function well when paired with the WAGO DALI I/O module and DALI Multi Master module.
The GRE Alpha XLD Series is a UL/cUL listed Class 1 and 2 easy-install LED driver offering universal AC input, integral wiring compartments for reduced installation costs, constant current and voltage dual mode operation for flexibility and optimal performance, user-adjustable output voltage and current, 1-10V dimming options with SLD Smart Dim series dimming module, up to 92 percent efficiency, active power factor correction above 0.9, a heavy duty design for harsh environments, up to four combinable output channels, built-in protection (SCP, OTP, OVP and OCP), and an IP 65 standalone enclosure.
GRE Alpha’s SLD-DIM DALI dimming module features wide range DC input, DALI control input, UL/cUL Class 1 and 2 designations, integrated strain relief and terminal cover, spring-loaded terminals for easy installation, 255 dimming levels, wide range DC input of 8-48V, dimming range of zero to 100 percent, duplicate terminals for parallel connection and 97 percent efficiency.
“The home automation industry has been plagued with compatibility issues,” said Fong. “Often, incompatible power and lighting control solutions are paired, and flickering and poor lighting control result. At GRE Alpha, we aim to make our products compatible with a wide host of leading building automation systems—such as Lutron and WAGO—to ensure that every lighting project is installed with ease and works as it should.”
GRE Alpha works tirelessly to partner with—and make its products compatible with—the best home automation networks in the lighting industry, giving specifiers ease of mind when it comes to upgrading and specifying lighting projects with automation features. The company is committed to innovation and to delivering high-quality, leading edge LED lighting solutions. Product offerings are rapidly expanding in dimming modules, lighting control systems, and LED lighting management accessories, consistently offering new solutions to aid in LED adoption.
