POE Lighting and Controls
Power over Ethernet (“PoE”) lighting, driven by LED technology and a subset of the Internet of Things (IoT), refers to the intersection of lighting and technology through the use of low-voltage data cabling and network switches to power light fixtures and transmit data between the light fixtures, sensors, and the control system software.
How Does PoE Lighting Technology Benefit Clients?
Today’s LED light fixtures with low voltage DC circuit boards can often be easily controlled by PoE. Conduit runs to light fixtures can be minimized and installation costs reduced. Clients can operate in a space with minimized line voltage, allowing for easier space maintenance. Sensor networks can seamlessly deliver occupancy, daylight, temperature, humidity, CO2, and other information to other building systems such as fire alarm, BMS, security, and access. Data collected and managed from these systems can help maximize energy savings, optimize space usage, and improve employee well-being, and productivity.
