Getting to know: Philips Dynalite Wireless

Philips Dynalite has introduced the wireless extension to their networked lighting control system. With the release of the Philips Dynalite ZigBee gateway, and ZigBee receiver and multifunction sensor, Dynalite now enables wireless control of DALI luminaries. 

The Philips Dynalite wireless system offers all the benefits of an intelligent control system, without the need for extra control cabling. This addresses the challenge of commercial building owners: how to reduce day-to-day operating costs of their existing buildings while maintaining comfort and productivity.

Wireless Architecture

The new wireless products can be used in combination with the entire Philips Dynalite product portfolio, enabling hybrid deployments.

Philips Dynalite ZigBee Gateway

The PDZG-E ethernet to ZigBee gateway is a wireless communication hub that connects up to 25 ZigBee receiver/integrated sensors (SNS401CMP) to the Philips Dynalite lighting control system. The gateway translates communications between ethernet and ZigBee to provide reliable wireless lighting control.

This device also features an occupancy and daylight sensor to enable further entry savings, and can control a DALI broadcast channel (via a Philips Xitanium SR bridge),and a 1-10V channel (via a Philips Advance SR bridge).
