TE Connectivity’s Lumawise Endurance S module for “smarter” street lighting
By Renée Francoeur
March 17, 2017 – TE Connectivity has introduced a new compact connectivity solution for street lighting with LED light sources. TE’s Lumawise Endurance S module consists of a standardized interface between the receptacle and module base or sealing cap. It uses an integrated single gasket that can accommodate and seal both luminaire and module, TE notes, using the same connection interface for either 40-mm or 80-mm diameter central management systems.
Specifically for outdoor LED light sources and drivers, Lumawise Endurance S has been designed as a standalone system and can be used in a complementary function as an auxiliary sensor module when additional functionality is required in ANSI/NEMA based fixtures. Modules can be exchanged and upgraded without having to electrically isolate the lighting pole, the company adds.
The system was co-developed with several partners “to ensure a complete system is available, including application specific drivers and control nodes”, TE says, noting it also collaborated with the Zhaga Consortium, a global lighting-industry organization that standardizes components of LED luminaires.
