AEG Power Solutions Announces New Series of Wireless Controllers for the Lighting Market
DALLAS --(Business Wire)--
As the lighting market moves towards more sophisticated control systems
to reduce costs and their impact on the environment, AEG
Power Solutions (AEG PS) announces its ZCM
range of wireless controller modules.
ZCM controllers provide substantial energy savings by allowing light
fixtures to only supply the amount of light actually required at any
instant. They can be used in indoor or outdoor applications where they
can offer incremental savings of up to 60 percent or higher, further
enhancing the attractiveness of a LED-based lighting solution.
The same ZCM controller can also be used to retrofit existing lighting
based on fluorescent, high intensity discharge or other legacy
technologies. Wireless mesh networking allows operation over a wide
area, while minimizing power consumption. This completely eliminates the
need for control wiring which can be a barrier to installations in
existing buildings. The ZCM interfaces to the driver or lighting ballast
via an industry-standard 0-10V dimming signal and includes a switched
output to allow full control of the AC power to the light fixture. The
modules are self-powered from wide range AC input and provide a low
voltage auxiliary output for use with motion sensors, light sensors or
"With the introduction of the ZCM Series, we are allowing customers to
gain a greater return from their investment in LED lighting by further
lowering energy consumption of the entire system," said Robert Vosburgh,
North America sales director, AEG PS. "The value proposition of LE
lighting is its payback over a long period of time. Sophisticated,
real-time control of light intensity dramatically reduces the payback
period, which ultimately increases customers' benefits and the rate at
which they are received."
A key benefit of the ZCM is its flexibility of operation; while it can
operate as a standalone network in small installations, it is also
capable of interfacing with centralized control systems to provide
comprehensive control and monitoring. All functions are programmable
through a dedicated graphical user interface (GUI) which not only
simplifies initial setup, but also allows changes to be made very easily
when required. For more information on ZCM specifications, visit www.aegps.com/en/ees/led-drivers/zcm-series-zigbee-control-module/.
