nLuminaire™ is an intelligent, self-tuning Networked Lighting Control (NLC) solution which incorporates smart controllers, switches and sensors to enhance LED lighting control and utilization while significantly lowering overall energy consumption.

Comprised of 4 interconnected hardware components; Controller, Driver, Switch, Sensor and 2 software applications; Mobile and Manager, nLuminaire™ is designed from the start to be a simple to install, configure and manage lighting solution.

Working across floors or within zones or individual spaces, nLuminaire’s sophisticated closed-loop sensors harvest daylight and sense occupancy to provide ideal lighting conditions to ensure occupant well-being and productivity.

Utilizing the latest Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology to provide power and data connectivity to lighting control components, nLuminaire™ gathers real-time data and leverages deep-learning and tracking algorithms analyze and generate baseline lighting configurations.

Hardware

nLuminaire™’s 4 interconnected hardware components are easy to install, extremely reliable, and are built to last. The deployment is facilitated by software applications, which are then used to analyze and manage the building’s lighting needs.

nLuminaire™ Controller is one of the brains in the ceiling that controls individual LED luminaires and interfaces to Sensor and Switch.

A self-contained IoT enabled platform designed to control LED lighting; the Controller collects real-time data about the operation and status of the lighting related infrastructure and forwards it to the Manager application. A small subset of the data provided includes; luminaire power consumption and occupancy and daylight harvesting information. The Controller is able to dim a LED luminaire down to 1% of the maximum brightness without flickering. The solution supports remote dimming control via Manager or using the Mobile application (for Android or iOS devices). 

The Controller features 1 highly integrated input IEEE802.3bt-compliant PoE interface. Each Controller is connected to Power Supplying Equipment (PSE), commonly a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch, using standard Cat5e or Cat6 Ethernet cabling to provide power and data connectivity. The Controller is a pre-configured Type 4 Class 8 PD device and is capable of extracting a maximum of 95W (measured at the module output) from the PSE. 3 PoE RJ45 output ports are also built into the Controller to connect a Switch, Sensor and PoE enabled luminaire. 

Controller also includes a sophisticated power management system designed to accommodate the needs of both low power and high power LED lighting for either PoE enabled or hard wired LED luminaires. In cases where non-RJ45 enabled luminaries are installed, a 6 pole Phoenix connector is built into the Controller to provide DC power and PWM controlled DC power to LED and RGB LED Luminaires.

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.

nLuminaire™ Sensor is an intelligent ceiling mounted sensor platform combining motion, ambient light level and presence sensors in a single device. 

Power and data connectivity for Sensor is provided through the designated RJ45 port on the Controller, freeing up a PoE port on the PSE.

Designed to provide optimal sensing capability, Sensor covers an area of up to 16 m2 (172 ft2) with a 360o field of view depending on installed location. Incorporating the latest generation of sensor technologies, Sensor can detect motion, presence and occupancy levels with high accuracy and forward the gathered data to the Manager application. 

In addition to motion, presence and occupancy detection, Sensor incorporates a configurable daylight harvesting sensor. Continuously sensing ambient daylight intensity in real time, Sensor instructs the Controller to dynamically adjust lighting levels to ensure both ideal lighting while also minimizing energy consumption.

nLuminaire™ Switch is an elegant smart wall switch providing local lighting control for an entire floor or down to an individual space. The full glass touch panel design makes it simple to use; no buttons to push, knobs to turn or sliders to move. Power and data connectivity for Switch is provided through the designated RJ45 port on the Controller, freeing up a PoE port on the PSE. Switch can control LED lighting connected to both Controller and Driver.

More than simply a control to turn lights On/Off or change lighting levels, Switch also incorporates sophisticated RGB control. The RGB color slider offers accurate and fast color tone adjustment and allows users to choose RGB colors, adjust brightness, play dynamic changing patterns and save colors/scenes.

Software

CABSY™ nLuminaire Control Suite is an intelligent, self-tuning Networked Lighting Control (NLC) solution which incorporates smart controllers, Drivers, sensors and switches to enhance LED lighting control and utilization while significantly lowering overall energy consumption.

nLuminaire™ Mobile application provides authorized users the ability to control lighting. Depending on their role, from basic users whose capabilities can range from simple control functions like turning on or diming lighting for a space or zone to high end users, such as building managers, who are able to access the full range of control and configuration options.

Any authorized users are able to view the LED luminaires that they are permitted to control and any functional changes made will be updated instantly.

nLuminaire™ Manager scales from simple lighting control to advanced cloud-based energy management analytics, Manager application provides the management interface for the nLuminaire™ Lighting System. Using the Manager application; building owners, facilities and maintenance managers can take full control and manage their lighting; from the entire building down to an individual luminaire.
