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 other accessories.

"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.
