OSRAM SYLVANIA Demonstrating Integrated Fixture Control Strategies and ENCELIUM™ Energy Management System at Control This!
Demonstrating an Assortment of LED Luminaires with Integrated Control 

New York, N.Y. (Dec. 5, 2012) – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is demonstrating an assortment of LED luminaires with integrated control technologies and the industry leading ENCELIUM™ advanced lighting controls and energy management system today at Booths 2, 3 and 4 at the third annual Control This! hosted by the Illuminating Engineering Society of New York. These solutions highlight the company’s philosophy of offering convenient, flexible and scalable lighting control options that are easily embedded into new LED luminaires, ranging in application from parking garages to commercial interior spaces for both new construction and retrofitting of existing fixtures. 

At the event, Keith Chinchar, director of sales for the ENCELIUM product line, will be presenting on how to utilize an advanced, addressable lighting control system to drive down building energy costs at 4:00 pm in the North Presentation Room. Attendees will be able to learn about six smart control and energy management strategies and how they can easily be managed, modified and measured through the ENCELIUM Polaris 3D™ lighting control software.

With the ENCELIUM GreenBus II™ communication network and ENCELIUM Polaris 3D software, the ENCELIUM Energy Management System (EMS) offers unprecedented flexibility and control of a building’s lighting usage. Facility owners and managers now have the ability to incorporate lighting as a component of a portfolio-wide energy management program. The use of control software allows the ENCELIUM EMS to respond quickly to ever-changing building characteristics and requirements. Benefits include improved occupant comfort, workplace ergonomics and productivity; complying with building codes and energy efficiency requirements; and promoting a building’s “green” image and LEED certification efforts by reducing lighting energy consumption up to 50 to 75 percent. 

GreenBus II is a two-wire communication platform for supplying data and power to the ENCELIUM EMS from OSRAM. The new communication network integrates lighting control and energy management into one programmable architecture. The network can integrate with both DALI and analog 0-10V dimming lighting systems and is BACnet® compatible for easy integration with existing building automation systems that manage the operation of systems such as HVAC, fire and security.

Where DALI ballasts are preferred, the system utilizes an ENCELIUM DALI Bridge as a gateway between the ENCELIUM GreenBus II field bus and the DALI ballasts.  The DALI Bridge also allows for the mixing of Class 1 and Class 2 wiring within the same lighting system. Where analog ballasts are preferred, the system utilizes a Luminaire Control Module (LCM) which provide for addressable control (dimming or switching) of each device. The LCM is also able to control LED fixtures and dim 0-10V LED drivers.

The system also utilizes a Sensor Interface Module (SIM) to integrate standard occupancy and photo sensors into the ENCELIUM GreenBus II communication network.  Each SIM is automatically addressed when it is connected to an ENCELIUM Energy Control Unit (ECU) and adjusts itself to the type of sensor to which it is wired, establishing two-way communication between the ECU and itself. 

ENCELIUM Polaris 3D™
Polaris 3D is the next generation of lighting control software for the ENCELIUM Energy Management System. Eliminating the need for software installation, this industry first provides users access to the control system via a simple web-based application that provides 360°, three-dimensional navigation in a multi-floor view of a facility’s lighting energy use. This results in increased security, faster set-up and start times, and easier integration with other web-based building control systems.

Polaris 3D provides users with a unique color gradient representation of lighting system data, such as lighting status (on/off), power density or energy consumption, light levels; occupancy status; load shedding status; and comparative energy trends. The central software enables facility managers to group floors, rooms or even desks into zones and control them as a unit. Users can instantly rearrange lighting layouts by moving a zone from one area to the other with just a click of their mouse. Polaris 3D also provides the ability to change light levels anywhere in a complex, modify default levels and set lighting time schedules.  To see a video on the ENCELIUM Polaris 3D software click here.

ProPoint™ Medium Round and Square Canopy fixtures with integrated controls
The ProPoint™ Medium Round and Square Canopy fixtures with an integrated occupancy sensor for bi-level control based on occupancy will also be on display. Perfect for parking garage installations, this self contained unit utilizes PIR (Passive Infrared) sensing technology that detects motion of heat. Onboard adjustments can be made for low end dim setting (un-occupied setting) as well as an adjustable timeout from 30 seconds to 30 minutes.

OSRAM LED 2X2 Options with MULTIeco Dim
The Next Generation Luminaires award winning RLC22 recessed LED troffer and 2’x2’ LED retrofit kits will be shown with enhanced control options including an integrated MULTIeco Dim controller that can be configured for up to 14 different control modes, including daylight harvesting, occupancy sensing, high end trim and factory preset or user defined dimming levels. Suitable for small to medium scale commercial office, classroom, retail and circulation spaces, this sensor solution utilizes 0-10V control output and can easily be connected to control up to six fixtures.  

EMerge Registered OSRAM RLC Recessed 2X2 LED Troffer
The RLC22 LED luminaire will also be demonstrated with an EMerge Driver and ENCELIUM control module, following on the heels of the joint marketing agreement Armstrong Ceiling Products and OSRAM SYLVANIA announced in November at Greenbuild. The EMerge Alliance Registered version of the RLC22 is compatible with Armstrong’s low voltage DC FlexZone ceiling systems. When combined with an ENCELIUM EMS technology control system, plug-and-play reconfigurability meets whole building control capability to deliver maximum energy savings and design flexibility. Each fixture is individually controlled and networked together for a fully addressable lighting system.
