Fulham Releases Bluetooth Bridge to Retrofit Any 0-10v LED Luminaire for Bluetooth Mesh Wireless Control

Bluetooth Bridge First in New Line of BLE-enabled Products that Interoperate with Any Bluetooth Device or Infrastructure.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced availability of a new Bluetooth Bridge 0-10V LED controller, the first in a series of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) components designed to connect luminaires into a Bluetooth mesh ecosystem. The new Bluetooth Bridge can be installed in any electrical box or LED fixture to provide wireless 0-10 dimming control and monitoring.

The Bluetooth mesh standard was approved in July 2017 by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and offers a number of advantages for wireless lighting controls. The mesh architecture is inherently reliable with built-in failover so there is no single point of failure and luminaires fitted with the Bluetooth Bridge can be added or removed without disruption. Bluetooth mesh also is secure and highly scalable so it can connect thousands of nodes, and it provides a full stack communications protocol platform so it can support the Internet of Things (IoT) devices as part of the network.

There are 32,000 corporate members of the Bluetooth SIG, and any compatible device that has been qualified by the SIG can connect to any other Bluetooth device over Bluetooth mesh. For example, luminaires equipped with Fulham’s new Bluetooth Bridge can be controlled wirelessly by other Bluetooth devices, such as the EnOcean Bluetooth energy harvesting wall switch (also available from Fulham).

“Bluetooth mesh shows great promise for the lighting industry, making it an ideal solution to add wireless lighting controls as part of new installations or LED retrofits,” said Alvaro Garcia, Senior Director, Product Management, for Fulham. “With our new Bluetooth Bridge, installers can convert any 0-10v dimmable LED luminaire into a Bluetooth mesh node. Since Bluetooth is a recognized standard, we anticipate a number of manufacturers will develop their own BLE lighting solutions, and our new Bridge products make it possible to add any LED luminaires to the mix.”

The Bluetooth Bridge is being offered in two configurations. Fulham’s Model CTBRCB02JM02 Bluetooth Bridge provides wireless on/off and 0-10V dimming controls for a transmission range up to 50 meters/160 feet at 2.4GHz. The Bluetooth Bridge has 120 to 277VAC input, as well as a sensor input for motion controls and daylight harvesting. Fulham’s Model CTBRCB03JM03-PC offers additional functionality, including power metering and color tuning. Both units are designed for indoor or outdoor use at operating temperatures from -40 degrees to 140 degrees (Fahrenheit). They both come with Fulham’s five-year warranty.

Since Bluetooth mesh supports two-way communications, the Bridge can be commissioned, controlled, and monitored using an app on any Bluetooth-enabled device, such as a tablet or smartphone. Fulham is offering a lighting commissioning app to support its BLE products. Currently available for iPhones, iPads, and other iOS-compatible devices, the app can be used to remotely program and monitor Bluetooth mesh-connected luminaires. Fulham is making the app available at no cost, although fees will be charged based on the number of luminaires being commissioned.

Fulham Exec to Address International LED professional Symposium on Safety, Security, and Connected Emergency Lighting

Fulham’s Jeremy Ludyjan, LC, to speak on need to verify emergency lighting readiness and new technologies to enable connected lighting management.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — At LpS 2018, the eighth International LED professional Symposium being held in Bregenz, Austria, September 25-27, Jeremy Ludyjan, LC, Senior Director, Field Marketing for Fulham Co., Inc., will present a session entitled, “Connected Emergency Lighting – Safety and Security in Controls and Emergency Lighting.” Ludyjan’s presentation will explore changes in emergency lighting safety standards and maintenance and the role of new IoT-enabled LEDs in emergency lighting diagnostics as part of building automation.

There was a time when building managers could walk to an emergency fixture, press a button, and see the status of an emergency light. With more buildings being retrofitted with cost-effective LED lighting, there is now an opportunity to upgrade emergency lighting, combine emergency and conventional LED luminaires, and create a larger connected ecosystem that provides streamlined light tests and automatic reports. Using sensors built into emergency lighting and connected using wired or wireless controls, scheduled diagnostic and real-time reports reveal more about emergency lighting operation, such as battery health, temperature, power consumption, and overall luminaire readiness.

“Emergency lighting maintenance is a key factor in building safety but it is often overlooked,” said Ludyjan. “Incidents have happened in numerous worldwide locations, including Europe, where faulty emergency lighting likely increased the causalities. Adding connectivity and intelligence to emergency lighting systems is a simple way to go beyond safety code compliance and integrate emergency lighting controls into a larger smart building ecosystem.”

Adding shared sensors to connected emergency lighting systems adds another layer of building intelligence. For example, sensors can monitor heat to identify the location of a fire, determine occupancy to locate people trapped in an emergency, or even use audio sensors to detect an active shooter or terrorist threat. Intelligence from sensors also can be used to illuminate safe exit routes, directing occupants away from a fire or the source of an emergency.

Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has been actively research and developing new ways to integrate LED luminaires into smart building infrastructures. The company has recently demonstrated LED luminaires that can be networked using Bluetooth mesh or Power over Ethernet.

Fulham offers a full line of LED emergency lighting systems, including exit signs, emergency lighting retrofit kits, and combination LED luminaires and emergency drivers. For more information, visit http://www.fulham.com.

Fulham White Paper Describes How Digital Lighting Controls Overcomes Lack of Dimming Standards

Migration to Digital Standards Promises to Simplify Lighting Installation, Add Wireless Communications, and Extend Controls to Other Building Systems.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has released a new white paper that discusses the limitations surrounding 0-10V luminaire dimming and the benefits of adopting open digital standards to promote universal lighting compatibility. The white paper, entitled “Next-Gen Digital Dimming and the Shortcomings of 0-10V,” describes the pitfalls of trying to retrofit luminaires with incompatible dimming curves and how the emergence of new digital control and communications platforms extends lighting controls beyond simple dimming.

To date, there has been no universal standard for 0-10V dimming in LED luminaires. As a result, LED drivers from different vendors have different dimming characteristics; a 5V signal could result in a dimming profile of 50, 80, or 30 percent, depending on the manufacturer. Similarly, at 0V some LED drivers will turn power off, while others may dim from 1 or 10 percent. Non-standard dimming drivers also can overload a lighting system, tripping a circuit breaker or creating a catastrophic driver failure.

Lighting control systems such as DALI, Bluetooth mesh, and Zigbee address this lack of common dimming standards by taking advantage of embedded software support in LED components. Intelligent LED drivers can be grouped and programmed to accommodate changes and incompatibilities in dimming profiles, including making changes and upgrades automatically. In addition, polarity is not an issue with digital control systems, which makes digital luminaires easier to wire and scale.

More importantly, where most dimming protocols are unidirectional, issuing instructions with no means to verify response, digital control systems provide two-way communications to show the status and health of each switch, sensor, and luminaire. In addition, lighting manufacturers are finding that digital LED controls lend themselves to wireless connectivity, eliminating the need for extensive retrofits or additional control wiring.

“We released this white paper to show the industry what we see coming in digital lighting and open control standards,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “Digital controls not only make it easier to mix and match lighting systems, but ensures faster and more trouble-free installations.”

Fulham has already demonstrated interoperability of digital control systems over a Bluetooth mesh wireless infrastructure, as well as delivering power and control to luminaires using Power over Ethernet (PoE). New programmable, digital LED components that are Bluetooth-mesh and PoE compatible will become commercially available later this year.
