Casambi Launches Long Range BLE-based Mesh at LEDucation 2023
Attendees at LEDucation 2023 in New York City this week can seize the opportunity to learn about Casambi’s latest developments, which include new feature-rich SoC, software upgrades, and new hardware components that create a fourfold increase in node-to-node communication range, which will enable more robust indoor, outdoor, and hybrid indoor/outdoor networks.
Casambi’s feature-rich SoC, CBM-003, which enables new radio modes and longer range up to approximately 650 feet in real-world applications. In addition, this industry leader of wireless lighting controls has also announced the production release of three new network component devices based on the new SoC, which is also already being deployed by dozens of partner companies in hundreds of products in the Casambi ecosystem. Together, these innovations have created the first commercially available long-range BLE-based mesh network.
The new long-range chips open new applications in parking garages, multi-building campuses, and outdoor architectural lighting installations where lighting control has historically been technically challenging. Casambi’s open ecosystem partners (OEMs) are in the process of designing and testing LR products which will hit the North American market later in 2023.
The new products from Casambi include a cloud Gateway (CGW-001-POE/CGW-001-PSU), 0-10 dimming controller (CBU-ARP-LR), and phase dimming controller (CBU-TDP-LR).
“Extension of the Casambi mesh network range enables a new spectrum of outdoor and hybrid indoor/outdoor lighting systems all controlled by the Casambi app,” said Mark McClear, General Manager, Casambi North America. “This is an important step forward for the industry as it moves past archaic lighting control panels, long copper wire runs and unnecessary installation labor. Wireless networks are replacing wired networks just like LED replaced all other lighting sources.”
