MICROSENS optimises large-scale lighting installations with the Central Smart Lighting Controller

The euromicron subsidiary MICROSENS extends its IP-based lighting solution "Smart Lighting" by a central LED constant power source. Particularly for scenarios with a large number of networked lamps, the 'Central Smart Lighting Controller' facilitates installation, maintenance, and reconstructing.

Smart Lighting by MICROSENS is a decentralised, IP-based lighting solution for intelligent buildings. Here, standard network cables supply both electricity and information for energy-saving, dimmable LED lighting. This reduces the installation effort compared to conventional networked lighting solutions, since it is not necessary to carry out a separate and cost-intensive installation of a 230-V supply and control BUS.

Central Smart Lighting Controller
The Central Smart Lighting Controller is a multi-port, constant power supply for up to 24 individually controllable LED lamps. Up to 50 W are supplied per lamp by means of standardised twisted-pair cables. The integrated control ensures the generation of uniform light and flicker-free dimming. Motion or presence sensors can be connected via four wired bus inputs. In addition, it is possible to integrate light switches or further sensors or actors via wireless communications into the system. Currently, the wireless communications standards EnOcean and IP500 are supported. With its fan-less design, the Central Smart Lighting Controller is ideally suited for the installation into a suspended ceiling or a 19'' distribution cabinet. This makes it possible to easily expand the lighting installation or perform maintenance tasks.

The Smart Director, a MICROSENS building automation application, is installed on the Central Smart Lighting Controller. It manages and controls lamps and lamp groups according to predefined lighting scenarios. Additionally, the application integrates heating and shading into automation. Moreover, a superordinated software, the Smart Building Manager, administrates larger room units, whole floors, or complete building complexes.

Perfect for large-scale lighting installations
The Central Smart Lighting Controller is the extension of the Smart Lighting portfolio, which is primarily designed for planners of large-scale lighting scenarios. That is why it is the perfect solution for open-plan offices, shopping centres, hotels, hospitals, and industrial environments. If the building is refurbished or reorganised with a new room layout, an operator can easily group the lights together logically at the click of a mouse.


Transmitting information via fiber optic connections offers numerous benefits. MICROSENS GmbH & Co. KG recognised this very early on. As one of the pioneers, the company has developed and produced high-performance communications and transmission systems in Germany since 1993. Individually matched to the demands of diverse usage areas and embedded in comprehensive concepts for individual sectors. But, above all, close to the customer. Technical challenges from customer projects are incorporated directly into product development. This way, IP-based automation solutions are created for modern buildings, cost-efficient network concepts for the office and workspace, robust and fail-safe solutions for industrial environments, optical transport systems future-oriented wide area networks and efficient coupling of sites and computer centres.
