Eliminate potential start-up delays with Legrand’s wireless networking solution for DLM platform
By Ellen Cools
June 12, 2018 — Legrand North & Central America recently launched a new wireless networking solution for the Wattstopper Digital Lighting Management (DLM) platform.
The solution features a wireless network bridge (LMBC-600) and border router (LMBR-600) that allows contractors to network DLM rooms together without a segment network wire (MS/TP), which Legrand says eliminates potential start-up delays caused by wiring issues.
Additionally, the solution enables management of the entire building’s lighting system and offers demand response capability for all connected loads.
The wireless network bridge communicates all DLM local network data and device settings in individual rooms to a Wattstopper Network Segment Manager and/or Wattstopper LMCS software, or third party system using BACnet to enable centralized data analysis and system control.
Meanwhile, the border router manages the creation and configuration of the wireless network and provides network connectivity via wired Ethernet to a local lighting control network. Each border router can host up to 50 wireless network bridges and 400 DLM devices. The border router also provides information about the health of the network.
