Enlighted With Philips Xitanium SR LED Drivers Launch New Era in Workplace Lighting

Solution Combines Enlighted's Wireless, Fixture-Integrated Sensor With Philips Xitanium SR LED Driver to Deliver Disruptive Capabilities for All Fixture Manufacturers

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2014) - Enlighted, Inc. today announced it will deliver a new fixture-integrated, digital, multi-function wireless sensor unit that, when connected to the Philips Advance Xitanium SR LED driver, enables any lighting manufacturer to deliver simpler, fully connected fixtures.

"This is a gigantic step towards the future of lighting for buildings," said Joe Costello, Enlighted's CEO. "People thought we were crazy five years ago when we talked about integrating a sensor with every fixture, but now the whole world is talking about smart fixtures as the only way to be future proof, code compliant and IoT enabled. This is the way things will be done."

Enlighted's sensor unit provides full digital passive infrared, light level, and temperature sensing combined with a distributed intelligence control's architecture and wireless communication. When the sensor unit is integrated into an LED fixture driven by the Philips Advance Xitanium SR LED driver the driver provides DC power as well as energy reporting data directly to the sensor unit.

This eliminates the need for extra relays and control devices thereby reducing the cost and complexity of creating an intelligent and addressable (connected) fixture. By using a wireless network to collect data from Enlighted's sensor network, the cost and complexity of a networked lighting control system is further reduced by eliminating wired connections to central panels, DALI buses and DALI power packs which are required in traditional systems.

Through the natural match between Enlighted's new fixture integrated wireless sensor and Philips Advance Xitanium SR, every fixture manufacturer can create cost-effective and easy to use solutions that will help deliver exponential savings and new and evolving capabilities such as controlling energy, maximizing workplace comfort and increasing productivity across a platform of buildings. The Enlighted / Philips combination creates a new foundation for connected light.

Enlighted's sensor unit is targeted specifically for linear applications such as troffers and pendants in commercial office lighting, works seamlessly with the recently announced Philips Advance Xitanium SR LED Driver and will be commercially available in the fourth quarter of 2014.
