Fulham acquires Control Network Solutions for DALI control
April 20, 2017 - Fulham Co. has acquired the assets of partner company Control Network Solutions (CNS), the UK-based creator of the elitedali smart lighting control and management system.
This transaction continues Fulham’s "strategic European expansion", the company stated, noting it has been developing its relationship with CNS for over a year and utilizing CNS’s elitedali.
With this acquisition, Fulham can now offer a Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) and web-based, convergent smart lighting solution.
“With the acquisition of CNS, we now have the remaining components needed to move from clever to smart lighting products, communications and control system software,” said Bob Howard-Anderson, Fulham CEO. “elitedali technology aligns with our vision of standards-based smart lighting controls and allows us to meet increasing customer demand for DALI-enabled lighting solutions based upon multi-vendor choice, flexibility and real-time device data for analytics, and effectively lays the foundation for the coming of smart lighting.”
Mike Welch, founder of CNS, will continue with Fulham as vice-president, Controls Business Development.
The elitedali solution is based on the Niagara software framework from Tridium, an independent business entity of Honeywell International.
