VEmesh E2D – IoT Extension to DALI
VEmesh E2D solution enables the use of DALI luminaires and sensors in a cloud (IoT) controlled wireless network. VEmesh E2D supports all the relevant DALI-2 and DALI-1 standards for luminaires and sensors, such as Energy Reporting (Device Type 51) and Diagnostics and Maintenance (Device Type 52). For most VEmesh E2D customers , the robustness and the reliability of the wireless network are paramount, and that’s precisely one of the areas where E2D outshines the other systems around. VEmesh advanced mesh topology enables it to cover extensive areas in each network.
At the other end of the installation – the hub, E2D users can employ the advanced capabilities of VEhub, or use a management system of their choice, taking advantage of VEmesh E2D open interface protocol.
The use of E2D Lighting Control is mainly in outdoor, for street and highway lighting, as well as in large indoor deployments, such as in campuses and in commercial Horticultural lighting – growing general plants and cannabis.
- Wireless connectivity for DALI Luminaires and Sensors
- Up to 16,000 Luminaires per single Gateway (network)
- 10KM radius area per single Gateway (network)
- Up to 250 co-located or adjacent networks
- Practically unlimited number of non-adjacent networks through frequency and sequence re-use
Other areas of E2D superiority are the short and deterministic latency, useful for collecting the status of all the lamps in seconds, as well as the high range between nodes that combines with the capability of avoiding the use of external antennas in most deployments. E2D is also capable of forming very large networks, for city-wide coverage in outdoor deployments.
All these features, and more contribute in turning E2D in a most advanced and cost-effective lighting system for cloud control of DALI luminaires and sensors.
