Energy monitoring and smart maintenance create transparency in lightings
The future of light is networked and digital, and the OEM Systems Group provides precisely the right solutions.
The intelligent software will be shown right on time for Light + Building, and BAG electronics expands its portfolio of software packages for the lighting industry with further important components. Energy monitoring and smart maintenance are enabled in a user-friendly way together with the new DataCom unit.
Luminaires will become increasingly intelligent and light more networkable - the new BAG software reflects this trend for smart data and creates new options for the maintenance and diagnosis of lighting installations equipped with intelligent BAG control gear. For this purpose, the compact DataCom continuously captures all data recorded by the ECG during operation and automatically forwards consumption data as well as warning and alarm messages to users. This in turn allows failures to be avoided before their occurrence. The DALI interface on the DataCom unit enables up to 64 ECGs to be monitored. The precondition for application is the use of ZITARES intelligent devices.
Especially useful is that reading out continuously collected data in the luminaire is convenient, simple and wireless thanks to the integrated WiFi hotspot. Visualisation on a PC is precisely according to needs with the Energy Monitoring and/or Smart Maintenance packages. As a result, temperature sequences over the lifespan of a luminaire can be tracked or energy consumption levels for any time durations (e.g. previous year, previous month) displayed in bar charts.
