DimOnOff intruces a multi -technology approach to Distributed Lighting Control

DimOnOff officially launches its multi-technology approach at Contech, Montreal tradeshow yesterday.

After many months of research and development, DimOnOff has managed to combine the use of 7 different telecommunication technologies into the most versatile hybrid control and monitoring system. This new system brings together EnOcean products for short range wireless batteryless sensors and controls, powerline communication relays and interfaces for short, medium and long range and harsh environments, XBEE wireless mesh networking, self discovery and self healing technology for relays and interfaces, low voltage twisted pair relays and interfaces, RS232/RS485 interfaces and WIFI and Ethernet devices.

All of those can be used in any combinations to cover all type of lighting control and automation situations. With every technology having its weaknesses and strengths, the new hybrid approach make it possible to easily switch to another technology only to work with the strengths of each. This also allows to create the most cost effective and less invasive solutions in new and existing buildings.
