Phihong Announces Wireless Power And Dimming Controls For OEM Lighting Applications
Phihong USA has developed a new series of remote access tools that provide users with greater control over their LED lighting installations. Compliant with indoor, outdoor and architectural lighting installations, the new remote access tools allow administrators to power, dim, shut off, program and reset networked lighting applications from any web-enabled computer, PDA or tablet.
Wireless controls allow users to set and dim multiple lights via remote controls or local area networks using their laptop, smartphone or tablet device, said Keith Hopwood, vice president of marketing for Phihong USA. They also allow users to save time and money during the installation
process by not requiring physically-mounted wall controls, which require additional AC wiring.
Phihong's customized drivers feature a new on-board module that can seamlessly receive and relay commands via wireless access points (WAPs). The new module enables users to remotely power, dim, shut off, program and reset networked lighting installations using a cloud-based, remote access
graphical user interface (GUI) that is accessible by any Wi-Fi enabled device with an Internet browser.
Phihong has also developed its own wireless access point, which operates on 802.11b and 802.11g bandwidths at 2.4GHz. Featuring enhanced 802.11i security on the data transfer, the WAP is equipped with standard WEP64/128, TKIP (WAP-PSK) and AES (WPA2-PSK) encryption. Powered by a 5VDC micro USB port, Phihong's WAP also meets worldwide electrical and radio standards and is compatible with networks in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, among others.
