OSRAM Connected Lighting Module Wins LIGHTFAIR Innovation Award
ENCELIUM and PrevaLED Solutions Also Win Ten Awards from Design Journal
OSRAM innovations have been receiving numerous accolades recently in the United States, demonstrating how the lighting leader is shaping the future with smart lighting technology. Out of 28 entries, the OSRAM Connected Lighting Module (CLM) won “Best of Category” at the LIGHTFAIR Innovation Awards in the Control Components, Hardware and Systems category. In addition, six OSRAM ENCELIUM and OEM light engine products were recognized by Design Journal, an international trade publication for interior designers, architects and facility managers, as Best of 2015 Products and/or with Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX).
The OSRAM CLM is one of the first LED fixture dedicated device to enable “out-of-the-box” wireless lighting controllable fixtures. The module can be inserted into any fixture with a driver capable of providing 12V auxiliary output to instantly make them smart and able to be controlled wirelessly. It also allows fixtures to connect to multiple wireless systems and building control systems certified to the ZigBee® Home Automation standard, without the need to worry about compatibility and procurement with wireless light management systems. The OSRAM CLM is Daintree Networks® ControlScope® certified, will operate on ZigBee Home Automation networks, and integrates with the ENCELIUM® Energy Management System.
“At LIGHTFAIR, the feedback about the OSRAM Connected Lighting Module was fantastic. People told us how much they appreciate how simple and easy this exciting device enables the wireless controllability of luminaires,” said Tom Shottes, head of Digital Systems, Americas, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “Before, OEMs had to buy and figure out how to install the wireless enabling components for the manufacturer of the wireless system specified. Now, they can use one device that works with a variety of leading wireless controls systems and offer a standard wireless controllable fixture.”
Commissioned annually by Design Journal, ADEX is considered one of the largest architecture and design award competitions in the industry, recognizing winning entrants at Platinum, Gold and Silver award levels. The following OSRAM innovations were honored with ADEX awards:
- ENCELIUM Wireless Energy Management System – ADEX Platinum Award
- ENCELIUM Wireless Photo Sensor – ADEX Gold Award
- ENCELIUM Wireless Area Lighting Controller – ADEX Silver Award
- ENCELIUM Wireless Wallstation – ADEX Silver Award
- OSRAM PrevaLED® Core Pro AC light engines – ADEX Platinum Award
- OSRAM PrevaLED® Core Z4 Style light engine – ADEX Silver Award
An anonymous panel of professionals and specifiers representing a cross section of their respective design industries conducted all judging and voting for the ADEX competition, awarding points that determined Platinum, Gold or Silver award status. Points were awarded in a variety of sub-categories and a minimum number of points were necessary to qualify at each level. In addition to the ADEX awards, the ENCELIUM Wireless Energy Management System, Wireless Photo Sensor, Wireless Area Lighting Controller, and Wireless Wallstation were awarded Best of 2015 Products by Design Journal.
“Our focus is on delivering solutions that address the needs of the design community. I am proud that the hard work of the teams involved with bringing these products to the market is being recognized,” said Shottes.
