The 5th-generation sensor is the only IoT sensor for commercial real estate that provides an upgrade path matching the cadence of building infrastructure upgrades. Through the 32-bit ARM processor and its expanded memory, the sensor has the compute power required to handle years of feature and security advancements through automatic remote software upgrades. This allows building owners to unlock new capabilities as IoT technology and use cases advance.
The sensor also features hardware upgradeability in the field, so customers can remove and replace the sensor with a new one during the 15- to 20-year lifecycle of a lighting fixture. Its size enables it to be housed in a separate carrier sleeve, which allows tool-less replacement without disturbing the light fixture or ceiling tiles.
Its sensor is also available in multiple upgradable configurations. This helps customers select the capabilities and cost that make sense for their current project; whether it is advanced lighting control, additional energy management features or a full suite of IoT applications, and add features through future software updates.
- Enlighted IoT offers the full IoT data platform with apps for real time location services, building occupancy and usage analysis, along with support for third party apps and data.
- Enlighted Connected features a connected lighting solution with lighting profiles, energy measurement and occupancy information for HVAC control.
The sensor platform features a number of enhancements from the previous generation, including advanced lighting features like daylight groups, which support efficient daylight harvesting, and an astronomical clock, which creates advanced lighting schedules based on local sunrise and sunset.
Working closely with the IoT-Ready Alliance and co-founding member Tridonic, the sensor meets the IoT-Ready draft specification, which defines a standard communications interface between the sensor and driver for lighting control, driver status and energy consumption information, as well as mechanical sensor mounting specifications in luminaires.
