Hubbell launches PowerHUBB to “help make buildings smarter”
By Ellen Cools
February 7, 2018 — Hubbell Control Solutions has developed a new Power over Ethernet (PoE) product “poised to help make buildings smarter, better connected and more energy efficient.”
PowerHUBB is an enterprise-level PoE lighting and control platform that integrates luminaires, sensors, user interfaces and software for a scalable intelligent building control solution.
PowerHUBB is enabled by a PoE node, which acts as an intelligent lighting hub by receiving power and data from the network switch. This is then passed along downstream to daisy-chained device nodes. As light fixtures and devices are connected to the network, the node will automatically discover and report those devices back to the system for plug-and-play functionality, Hubbell says.
