Messe Frankfurt, the organizers of the Light + Building 2020 trade fair which was scheduled to take place at Messe Frankfurt’s exhibition space in Frankfurt am Main from March 8th to March 15th, has postponed the event due to the unexpected appearance of Covid-19 in Italy. The Light + Building 2020 trade fair is now slated to be held in Frankfurt am Main in mid-to-late September, though an exact date has not been specified.
In a press release published on February 24th, 2020, Messe Frankfurt lists several logistical challenges that lead to the decision to postpone the trade fair.
“The unexpected appearance of Covid-19 in Italy since last weekend demanded a new analysis of the situation in close cooperation with the public-health authorities of the City of Frankfurt. A multi-stage health check on guests from China has been called for, the implementation of which would be extremely challenging for Messe Frankfurt. Additionally, more and more travel restrictions are being put into place thus making it difficult for both visitors and exhibitors to attend the fair.”
GRE Alpha will post an update with new dates and times for the Light + Building 2020 trade fair when Messe Frankfurt makes them available.
GRE Alpha is excited to be returning to Messe Frankfurt for Light + Building 2020 – the world’s largest trade fair for innovations in lighting and building services engineering. This is the second year that GRE will join the EnOcean Alliance Booth; celebrating a valued partnership and putting a spotlight on the extraordinary results of their self-powered wireless LED dimmer collaboration. The fair runs from Sunday, March 8th to Friday, March 13th in Frankfurt am Main, and you can find GRE Alpha among 15 star members of the EnOcean Alliance exhibiting their energy harvesting, wireless building solutions at Booth C60 in Hall 9.1.
Mirroring the show’s theme of “Connecting, Pioneering, Fascinating” are the LED dimming modules created by GRE Alpha as a result of their EnOcean partnership. Integrating GRE Alpha’s proven smart dimming technology with EnOcean’s patented energy harvesting wireless technology, their leading-edge modules support multiple frequencies and are speeding up the path to industrial lighting systems that are flexible, sustainable and energy-efficient.
GRE’s Executive Director, Richard Fong, points out that “with GRE Alpha’s advanced LED dimming module and LED driver expertise and EnOcean’s innovative wireless technology, trillions of IoT (Internet of Things) sensors can be powered and efficiently deployed. That will allow for quicker innovation and rapid adoption of IoT in smart lighting spaces, optimizing productivity, lowering costs and boosting the customer experience.”
Powered by exploiting the energy generated at the push of a button, GRE Alpha’s ENO-DIM dimming modules allow for smooth flicker-free dimming of lighting fixtures. Compatible with Bluetooth, Zigbee, BLE, and other wireless protocols, ENO-DIM is pushing wireless LED lighting control to the future IoT level while providing significant savings in time, money and energy.
While the ENO-DIM model is constant voltage, the newer ENO-DIM-CC is constant current, filling a critical need when constant power supplies work best (like working with high-powered LEDs. Both ENO-DIM and ENO-DIM-CC are available in three regional power supply versions: 902MHz in North America, 868MHz in Europe and 928MHz which is specially customized for Japan to work smoothly in any environment.
Applications for ENO-DIM include:
Light + Building 2020 is a trade show of innovation. And GRE Alpha’s EnOcean Dimming modules are only the beginning for IoT lighting control products that provide more performance flexibility and meet specialized customer needs. Visit Booth C60 in Hall 9.1 for a hands-on demonstration of GRE’s ENO-DIM dimming modules and other GRE smart powering solutions. You will be warmly welcomed by the team of LED lighting experts.

Hong Kong, December 03, 2019 – GRE Alpha has just wrapped up a successful fall season by showcasing their latest powering technology at two of the world's leading lighting forums. With smart lighting themes and a combined total of over 50,000 visitors, the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair ran from October 27-30 and the LED Expo in New Delhi, India from November 14-16. At both events, GRE Alpha garnered major attention by unveiling next generation technology for projects that require connected lighting.
"We know that consumers are looking for a reliable supply of quality dimmers and power supplies that support LED applications," said GRE Executive Director, Richard Fong. "That's where GRE Alpha excels, and shows like these give us a welcome opportunity to display our leadership in modular LED product development to visitors from all over the world. Being on the front lines gives our GRE Alpha staff the chance to meet with current clients, build new relationships and exchange ideas that inspire future product development."
There was no shortage of innovation on display at the GRE Alpha booths. GRE's expert team gave demonstrations of their smart lighting control modules, including Zigbee Dimming, DMX LED Controller, BLE dimming and DALI dimming. Also showcased was GRE Alpha's BLE solutions for architectural lighting with the Xicato Control App. Modular systems like these make it easy and cost effective to upgrade any lighting system to smart lighting.
Working with leading partners in the lighting field has enabled GRE Alpha to make even greater strides in LED powering solutions. The spotlight was definitely on two cutting edge lighting control modules that have been enhanced in multiple ways to provide more performance flexibility and meet specialized customer needs.
ENO-DIM-CC (EnOcean Wireless Constant Current LED Dimming Module): The ENO-DIM-CC is a new version of GRE's innovative ENO-DIM dimming module. While the original ENO-DIM is constant voltage, the CC is constant current which fills a critical need when constant power supplies work best, like working with high-powered LEDs. Both are available in three regional power supply versions: 902MHz in North America, 928MHz in Japan, and 868MHz in Europe and China. Applications include: Architectural lighting, effect & contour lighting, signage & strip lighting, swimming pools/fountain lighting.
SLD-DIM-XG4 (BLE LED Dimming Module): The XG4 is the newest in a series of dimming modules that are completely wireless and use the latest in Bluetooth mesh enabling hassle-free lighting control with superior performance. Working within DALI, Zigbee and EnOcean protocols, the XG series empowers OEMs to choose between several vendors to mix and match solutions. The XG4 and XG4-UL add greater control for color tuning and color changing applications. Uses include: Theme parks, stage lighting, color controls for decorating, architectural lighting, effect & contour lighting.
As excited as GRE Alpha is about sharing these technological advances, their top priority has and always will be their customer experience.
