nLuminaire™ Driver is another brain in the ceiling that controls individual LED luminaires.
A self-contained IoT enabled platform designed to control LED lighting; the Driver collects real-time data about the operation and status of the lighting related infrastructure and forwards it to the CABSY Manager application. Driver can provide data such as; luminaire power consumption. The Driver supports remote dimming control using the Switch or with the Manager management console or CABSY Mobile application (available for iOS or Android mobile devices).
Driver features a highly integrated IEEE802.3bt-compliant PoE and is connected to Power Supplying Equipment (PSE), commonly a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch, RJ45 PoE port using standard Cat6+ Ethernet cabling to provide power and data connectivity. Driver is a pre-configured Type 4 Class 8 PD device and capable of extracting a maximum of 90W (measured at the module output) from the PSE.
The Driver also includes a sophisticated power management system designed to accommodate the needs of both low power and high power LED Lighting for either RJ45 enabled or hard wired LED luminaires. In cases where non-RJ45 enabled luminaries are installed, a 6 pole Phoenix connector is built into the Driver to provide DC power and PWM controlled DC power to LED and RGB LED Luminaires.
Driver stores its configuration locally and stores lighting data in situations where connectivity to Gateway & CABSY Manager application (On Premise or Cloud) is lost. Once associated with a Controller, Driver will use the same management and control parameters for lighting defined for that group and use data generated by Switch and Sensor.
