When a power loss is detected both “client defined” and “code specified” programming can provide a virtually unlimited choice of illumination levels throughout the structure on a “zone-by-zone” basis. For example, all lights can remain “on” at a “code specified” level of illumination for emergency egress, and some lights at a predetermined “higher” level of illumination. An example where this technology is useful is in operating rooms, critical military environments, hazardous locations, etc.
Transfer from AC power to DC back-up power can take place in as little as 4 milliseconds, providing a virtually undetectable loss of illumination.
All Digital Power Gateways have a MTBF (mean time between failure) of 200,000 hours. For specialized applications Digital Power Gateways are available with additional “hot- swappable” back-up power and applications that monitor and report system efficiency, temperature, stability and failure sensing.
The Illumination System of the Future
Installing fixtures using Class-2 DC power over Category-6 cable eliminates metal conduit, heavy gauge copper wire and j-boxes and significantly reduces installation costs and HVAC heat load.
SINGLE POINT CONTROL
LIGHTZERO’s Digital Power Gateway creates a hub for centralized control of lighting by DMX, 0-10 VDC, BACnet, KNX, or Alexa.
NO FIRE OR ELECTROCUTION
Per NEC, Class-2 Power eliminates the possibility of electrocution or fire from the lighting in the occupied space.
DIGITAL POWER GATEWAY
A single DPG can power and control up to:
· 213 - 2’ X 2’ Diffused Fixtures
· 711 - 6” Round Down Lights
with single-color, Tunable-White or RGBW illumination.
Carries 200 watts of Class-2 DC power at 48 or 56 VDC to fixtures, with dimming, color changing and data gathering from our remote Digital Power Gateway.
· 85% reduction in lighting’s carbon footprint
· Sustainable production methods
· 99% recyclable at end-of-life
· No RF or EM radiation
· Environmentally friendly
· Earns LEED Points.
