PoE Lighting maine believes information technology (IT) and lighting used to be separate worlds. The necessity to create a bridge between these worlds, not only from a technical standpoint but also from the perspective of understanding what is important to each industry has led to a connected PoE Lighting system. LEDs far outperform the lumens output of older lighting technologies. Today, the PoE standard for LED is 30W.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) lighting is transforming the lighting industry and the industries it serves. While PoE Lighting Maine is being used mainly commercial buildings, it is poised to break out into the residential and industrial sectors. The affordability and higher efficiencies are driving the use of PoE lighting Maine in commercial buildings, making possible concepts such as the smart building and other applications that drive efficiency and productivity. Property owners and management companies of buildings are beginning to perceive PoE lighting as an asset that enables practical applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart buildings while adding significant value to buildings and companies.
PoE Lighting penetration in commercial buildings is reaching critical mass, making it cost competitive with other lighting technologies and enabling deeper market penetration. This represents one of the key elements driving the introduction of PoE lighting Maine. New buildings are the best candidates for PoE lighting systems, which can be designed as part of a building’s infrastructure.
Olympus™ Control System The adoption of PoE devices in commercial buildings is accelerating interest in PoE lighting Maine because more efficient and higher performance controls makes it more affordable in commercial buildings. To date, the lighting industry has focused mostly on retrofitting existing lighting fixtures with LEDs to replace older technologies, such as fluorescent and compact fluorescent lighting. PoE powered LED, however, not only improves efficiency but also provides better light quality, smoother intensity/ dimming control, and dynamically adjustable color temperature, providing the right light when and where it is needed. This results in improved worker comfort and more interactive and purposeful lighting and spaces for people. The ability to migrate lighting control to network IP-based infrastructure makes lighting a service and an IoT building asset that can be controlled and automated along with other building functions though the use of a B.A.S.
The next innovation for the commercial lighting industry is controls integrated into light fixtures, PoE Lighting Maine has done this. As the controls industry has claimed an ever increasing footprint in lighting design, and both PoE lighting and controls must coexist. In doing so, we can consolidate delivery, installation, and maintenance of a PoE lighting package for any given project. All of which lead to cost savings for the end user which is usually a main objective. Few options in the foreseeable future stand to provide this level of integration more than the concept of PoE lighting.
The idea of a PoE lighting solution is certainly a value add proposition, one with numerous benefits that make it hard to ignore. Powering fixtures off of low voltage DC power would allow for any technology professional to maintain the lighting in a space much like they would any computer or network technology. The ability to address fixtures individually allows the reconfiguration of lighting in a space without having to ever touch the fixtures. Having a network connection to each fixture in a space means that PoE light fixtures—the one item that covers more area of any given building outside of the floor, walls, and the ceiling—can now be integrated with sensors and other data gathering devices powered and monitored by the same backbone.
Performance using a PoE power source has to meet or exceed the performance levels that govern today’s commercial LED lighting sources. Can a high output LED really be powered off of PoE and still have the ability to provide the lumens required? The answer is yes. Luminetworx™ has achieved this goal. We have high bay lighting, street lighting and others exceeding 20,000 lumens. As a fixture manufacturer we have pushed efficacy of the fixtures in order to provide the required lumen output and maintain power consumption at levels still well below current high voltage fixtures.
PoE fixtures require a DC power source, and the cable to supply that power source to the fixture. And as such any data required for control of the fixtures, as well as any monitoring of power draw additional data. The Luminetworx™ PoE network switch, allows for the transmission of power in accordance with all national electric code standards. If every fixture required its own PoE port, we would need an excessive amount of switches, the cables to support individual home runs. The luminetworx PoE installation technology allows for the reduction of 50% of the required cabling for installation.
