Osram announced today the availability of SIMPLUX, a simple standalone wireless lighting control system designed for small- to mid-sized spaces up to 10,000 square feet and/or up to 100 nodes. For maximum design flexibility, SIMPLUX enables specifiers to choose virtually any manufacturer’s luminaire that has a 0-10V dimmable ballast or LED driver, and deliver fixture-by-fixture or full group control as needed. SIMPLUX also offers an easy upgrade path to POLARIS 3D software and the ENCELIUM networked light management system for more sophisticated, enterprise-level control or integration to building automation systems via BACNet. It is a simple, code-compliant solution for a variety of room or multi-room applications including new, retrofit and multi-phase construction projects. The SIMPLUX wireless lighting control system is ideally suited for schools, commercial offices, warehouses, and places where a wired solution is a challenge.
“Many small- to mid-sized commercial space customers need a code-compliant solution that is simple to install and manage, and also can provide the adaptability required to meet their evolving needs,” said Tom Shottes, Head of Osram Digital Systems, Americas Region. “SIMPLUX meets these criteria, providing customers with a unique solution that is both flexible and future-proof.”
SIMPLUX is simple to specify, install and manage. It does not require a floor plan, and both installation and setup are quick and easy using barcodes and the SIMPLUX Mobile Setup App. Installers scan the barcodes of pre-installed hardware, group and connect them to appropriate SIMPLUX controllers, and leverage pre-set default settings such as automated demand response, light levels and time-outs. Initialized lighting control schemes can be modified easily using the mobile app to accommodate different lighting environments, requirements and market applications. Clean, sleek component design, including intuitive labeling of wall stations, supports a user-friendly experience.
Lighting professionals and facility managers can use SIMPLUX as the default lighting control solution for all of their small- to mid-sized space projects. It supports a wide range of lighting schemes, environments and market applications, and any 0-10V dimmable ballasts or LED drivers can be used to meet aesthetic and physical use requirements. For example, SIMPLUX can be the default classroom solution for a school or district, as it supports a wide range of classroom configurations and requirements with energy-efficient lighting that provides appropriate light levels for different tasks including A/V, exams, and smart board activities. SIMPLUX is a standalone solution that can be deployed in school wings or individual classrooms at different times of a phased project, or based on when funding is made available.
SIMPLUX is available to specify now and will begin shipping June 2017.
