Deltavation Lighting Solutions

Early generation linear LED lamps do not offer optimal lighting performance (e.g., beam intensity, spread, uniformity). They are designed with all LEDs pointing straight downward resulting in a narrow 120-160 degree of light spread with significant reduction in off center light intensity. Inferior performance has contributed to slow adoption of linear LED lamps in the commercial market. Deltavation’s patented V-design provides multiple LED boards oriented to distribute uniform light over 290 degrees usable lumens.

The high intensity and wide beam angle of these lamps permits lower power operation for improved efficiency. The design includes a protected internal chamber suitable for mounting a driver circuit and a wide range of smart lighting electronic components. An end cap connector board eliminates wire connections and supports plug-and-play connectivity to all internal components. Smart lighting components are easily integrated directly into lamp, which is significantly less expensive than replacing fluorescent fixtures with smart integrated, LED fixtures. This format also supports future technology advances by allowing lamps to be upgraded without replacing fixtures.

Snap-Fit PoE Mounting PoE Enabled Linear Lamp

Networked lighting providers are unable to deploy their automation technologies using linear LED lamps. Conventional fluorescent lamp infrastructure provides no way to connect the lamps directly to the network. Providers began deploying a variety of non-standard, customized integrated LED luminaires containing Ethernet connections. However, replacement LED luminaires are costly to manufacture and require removal of the fluorescent fixtures to install. Their performance varies widely, and LED luminaires cannot be upgraded to keep pace with advances in LED and automation technologies.

Deltavation developed a sensible cost affective solution to these issues by extending its Snap-Fit connector system to networked PoE linear lighting applications. The base connector of the Snap-Fit PoE system has an integrated Ethernet jack, and the leading end is an Ethernet complaint plug, which seats in a second jack internal to the lamp end cap. This provides networked power and data connectivity directly the lamp and unlocks efficiencies never before possible by using Ethernet cables to both power and control LED lamps, without the need for a complete fixture replacement. The corresponding Delta PoE T lamps provide for mounting smart lighting componentry internal to the heat sink and includes end cap connector boards to facilitates power and data connectivity to all components.

Adaptive design suitable across all fixture manufacturers (existing fixture designs require minimal redesign for POE compatibility)

  • Allows manufactures to immediately enter the rapidly growing POE market. All certifications, UL, DLC etc. are completed through the module. Allowing manufactures to offer POE across entire linear portfolio. Shortening Time to Market
  • First ever-tunable POE lamp module. Can be tuned from 2700k to 6000k (Complete Circadian Rhythm)
  • Internal POE Node allows for each lamp to be its own system. (Removing trouble shooting system failure)
  • Eliminates catastrophic failure of POE system. Failure and warranty issues are addressed with a noninvasive module lamp replacement. No need to remove fixture.
  • Future proof system (up-gradable fixture). Deltavation system allows for the client to realize any technology or system upgrades with a simple removal and replacement of current module lamp.
  • Deltavation System installation less complex and less costly compared to total replacement of existing lighting luminaries in cases when client recently completed a deep retro-fit with manufactures fixtures. (Continued Value to the Market)
  • Provides new network POE pilot program opportunities (incremental business)
  • System allows for standardization of POE and use of all data connections in current market.
  • Converges the electric and communication control network onto a single infrastructure.
  • Reduces complexity and cost on light fixtures.
  • Ethernet is a global harmonized standard. Customers can use the same products anywhere on the planet. This greatly reduces inventory costs.
  • Light fixture adds, moves and changes are easy and can usually be made by anyone.
  • Allows client/administrators to set policies on each light.
  • Enables any/all lights to be backed up with a UPS.
  • Switches can often measure current at each port—enabling automated trouble reporting while providing an estimate of the fault distance.
  • Switches make it easy for customers to shape electric load—enabling real time demand capping—and saving money.
  • Delta module behaves like IT devices. They can be managed with existing IT tools.
  • Allow customers to dynamically tune the color temperature.
  • Lights can download configuration software. Many will support remote firmware updates.
  • Lights work with existing network management and energy monitoring tools.
  • Lights can be controlled by “light play-lists”.
  • With color beacons—Delta POE LED networks will spawn the “amplification” of light. Innovators can create new applications that use color to communicate information.
  • By moving to Deltavation POE, it’s possible to use small scale, on site renewable energy systems to power lights.
  • Customers will get better quality, value and performance for less money.
  • LED's can transmit high speed data—lights may soon act as single user Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) access points.
