USB Outlet Wiring

USB and USB-C (USB-PD) appears to be on a trajectory to become the de facto standard for powering modern devices. LumenCache is sometimes described as "Built-in USB for Homes and Offices". A plug-in AC powered USB adapter is limited to only providing power, but USB is a well-defined commun...

Re: Motion sensor light triggering inconsistent, also dims when switched off

Inconsistent motion triggering issue: check your WP mode is 3,4,5, or 6. Will not work with mode 1,2 because they use on/off switch. When the switch is ON it reads a dead short on control signal pair so the motion sensor 7500ohm resistor is not able to be read.

Re: Motion sensor light triggering inconsistent, also dims when switched off

If a light remains on dimly lit when the driver is switched off, it is usually because the total LED voltage, both lights in series in this case, is too low for the boost driver. Boost drivers need the LED voltage to be a few volts above the PDM input voltage. For example, if the battery and charger...

Re: Home Theater Project

No addressable fixtures (yet). There is a 4 light, 1 cat5 module in the design stage.

I would wire for the 16W. That product is available today and certified.

Re: California JA8 Certification

The LED Lights used need their own JA8. All of the new light models we're making will have the JA8 certs as it's easy to accomplish for LumenCache.

Re: Controlling HID lights with Lumencache

For control, yes. The nLights product is similar where it uses the Cat5 as a control bus. LumenCache simply lets you change the technology used so one section of your plant may have 0-10V controlled ballasts while a new section may have DALI controlled, and some other section may have a new technolo...

Re: IC Rating: Insulation Contact

Look for the IC logo on lights to see if they are Insulation Contact rated. We will add a filter for that feature.

Re: LiFi?

LiFi is being added to new cellphones. The benefit is high speed download via data modulated over light. The gen2 system wil allow any light to be a LiFi broadcast simply by changing the driver module in the closet. We are planning gigabit minimum speeds.
