MaxLite announces c-Max Network Controls, a Bluetooth-enabled luminaire level lighting controls (LLLC) system for indoor and outdoor applications.
Ideal for achieving energy savings in small to medium-sized facilities, c-Max Network Controls can be commissioned with the c-Max app – no gateway device required! A patent pending plug and play design allows for easy installation of sensors and nodes into the integrated USB-C receptacle of MaxLite controls ready luminaires. Lighting customers can choose between c-Max Basic and Network controls based on budget and application needs. The Network version offers advanced functionality for wireless grouping and controlling luminaires, including scene setting, granular dimming and scheduling. Control capabilities can be upgraded from Basic to Network, or to the latest generation technology, simply by swapping sensors in the MaxLite fixture.
MaxLite offers a comprehensive portfolio of controls ready LED luminaires, with eight product families currently available and more c-Max compatible releases on the way, including the new M Series outdoor family of fixtures. Current controls ready products (indicated as -CR) include flat panels, troffers, retrofit kits, strip fixtures, utility wraps, vapor tights, area lights and wall packs. Sensors and network nodes are sold separately; see individual product datasheets for available controls options and ordering information.
“Designed to be simple, versatile and future ready, c-Max and controls ready fixtures offer a great value proposition to our customers,” said Umesh Baheti, senior vice president of product management, engineering and supplier relations. “The low voltage nodes and plug and play receptacle enable easy DIY installation of sensors, thereby reducing labor costs while providing overall project flexibility. The ability to add controls now or in the future, or upgrade from basic to network controls without having to change the fixture or call in an electrician provides a second bite of the apple to our agent and ESCO partners. With a variety of hardware devices to choose from, c-Max scales across a broad set of indoor and outdoor product families providing facilities with a total site lighting controls solution.”
