Easyfit wall switches control Bluetooth lighting systems
EnOcean has created a new brand, Easyfit, wireless and self-powered Easyfit switches for Bluetooth lighting systems. The wall switches are based on the Bluetooth low energy radio standard for light emitting diode (LED) lighting systems in commercial buildings worldwide.
The Easyfit wall switches will be exhibited at the Smart Lighting 2017 Conference, in Hamburg, Germany (30 to 31 May).
They are wireless, easy to retro-fit and maintenance free, says EnOcean. Combined with self-powered Bluetooth lighting systems from Casambi, Silvair and Xicato, the Easyfit wall switches offer installers advantages such as being maintenance-free, freely positionable, for flexible lighting design. They use EnOcean’s energy harvesting technology so do not require batteries.
The wireless and self-powered wall switches for Bluetooth lighting control systems are available in two design versions: The Easyfit switch with standardized 55 x 55mm frame (EWSSB/EWSDB) allows installers to easily replace any 55 x 55mm switch frame from a number of renowned manufacturers such as Berker, GiIra, Jäger Direkt, Jung and Merten. The second design is the Easyfit switch for North America (ESRPB/EDRPB).
The self-powered and wireless Easyfit switches can be commissioned by near field communication (NFC) to create simple or complex lighting scenes and effects, with flexible installation.
Easyfit Bluetooth low energy (BLE) switches are supported by Casambi, Silvair and Xicato. They offer self-powered control for Bluetooth lighting systems in 2.4 GHz.
Casambi has integrated a support for the Easyfit switches in its Bluetooth networked lighting controls. Equipped with NFC technology, the Easyfit wall switches enable commissioning and control of individual luminaires, groups of luminaires, scenes and animations.
With the Mesh Stack, Silvair provides a wireless communication engine for robust and scalable mesh lighting. The integration of Easyfit switches into the Mesh allows maintenance-free control of lighting systems with low latency, even in high-density lighting networks, says EnOcean. The mesh can be updated over-the-air to become compliant with the upcoming Bluetooth Mesh standard.
Xicato´s XIM Gen4 LED lighting modules with EnOcean´s Easyfit switches for Bluetooth Low Energy are particularly suitable for retail and commercial applications requiring California Title 24 compliance. The combination of the energy harvesting wireless Easyfit switches with Xicato´s LED lighting modules allows simple or complex lighting scenarios, with flexible installation. The self-powered lighting is used in museums, shops, hotels and residences around the world.
