Self-powered switches connect to Bluetooth LED lighting ecosystem

July 12, 2018 // By Julien Happich
Lighting components and specialty electronics supplier Fulham partnered with energy harvesting wireless technology provider EnOcean for the joint development of Bluetooth mesh-capable self-powered wireless BLE switches, adding EnOcean’s self-powered, wireless Easyfit switches to Fulham’s new Bluetooth mesh lighting control ecosystem.

Fulham recently demonstrated the first of a new family of Bluetooth mesh-enabled, wireless LED products at Lightfair 2018. The new wireless LED products include a 40W constant current driver with an intelligent wireless control dongle, and a Bluetooth bridge that can adapt any 0-10V LED luminaire to support Bluetooth mesh. Fulham’s new Bluetooth mesh LED products are SIG-qualified, support bidirectional communications, and support for third-party Bluetooth products.

Self-powered wireless wall switches for Bluetooth lighting control systems from EnOcean enable the development of maintenance-free, ready-to-use LED lighting applications. The self-powered Easyfit switches are already deployed in hundreds of thousands of projects worldwide, making LED lighting solutions more energy-efficient, more flexible, and lower in cost.

What makes Easyfit switches special is that they use the energy harvesting principle, in which energy is obtained from the surroundings to supply self-powered wireless sensor networks. The modules are based on miniaturized energy converters that convert motion, light or temperature differences into electrical energy. Therefore, wireless Easyfit switches are maintenance-free, freely positioned and allow flexible control as well as intuitive usage.

“Although today´s mobile electronic devices are incredible tools for controlling lighting, the switch is still the most natural and intuitive interface between lighting and users. Therefore, our self-powered Easyfit switches combined with Fulham’s Bluetooth products enables innovative wireless LED lighting solutions. These are easy to install, maintenance-free applications for modern lighting control based on our proven energy harvesting technology,” said Troy Davis, Sales Director, EnOcean Inc.
