Hong Kong – April 26, 2018 - More than 220,000 visitors gathered in Frankfurt, Germany, from March 18-23, 2018 to attend Messe Light+Building, the world’s largest trade fair for lighting and building services technology. During the fair, some 2,700 exhibitors displayed the latest products in the fields of lighting and home and building automation. The theme of this year’s event was “Connected-Secure-Convenient”. In this spirit, GRE Alpha presented their latest LED dimming module and driver technology working together with self-powered wireless switches and sensors based on the EnOcean wireless standard for a new era of intelligent building applications. The display was featured at the EnOcean Alliance partner booth in Hall 9.1, stall B60.
The result of a groundbreaking collaboration, GRE Alpha’s ENO-DIM LED dimming modules are compatible with any constant voltage LED driver. They enable smooth, flicker-free dimming of lighting fixtures when paired with any self-powered wireless switches using the EnOcean wireless standard. These switches use the energy created by the touch of a button to send a wireless signal to the ENO-DIM LED dimming module. There are no batteries and no wiring required, and switches can be mounted anywhere. This enables seamless integration when retrofitting existing LED lighting control systems or when building out new smart LED lighting projects.
Self-powered wireless switches using the EnOcean wireless standard operate at a high-reliability frequency band, and therefore enable interference-free and a wide range of up to 30 meters within buildings compared to other RF wireless technologies such as BLE and Zigbee. The ENO-DIM module is available in three regional power supply versions: 902MHz in North America, 928 MHz in Japan, and 868MHz in Europe and China.
“The importance of flexible and maintenance-free solutions for LED lighting control is increasing. Therefore, we are pleased to see the growing use of our energy harvesting technology in more and more applications for LED lighting control. The combination of GRE Alpha´s lighting solution with self-powered wireless switches is further enhancing the ecosystem of products supporting our energy harvesting wireless solutions,” says Jürgen Baryla, Vice President Sales, EnOcean.
Applications using GRE Alpha’s ENO-DIM modules in combination with EnOcean´s self-powered wireless switches include building and architectural lighting, effect and contour lighting, general commercial illumination, warehouses, signage, strip lighting and more. By combining GRE Alpha’s LED power supply and dimming module technology with EnOcean's self-powered wireless sensors and switches, lighting designers can create sustainable intelligent building, home automation, and architectural lighting control systems that are energy-efficient, easy to install, and maintenance-free.
