The Philips Xitanium ‘sensor ready’ (SR) drivers enable OEMs to design light fixtures as wireless nodes in connected lighting systems for indoor and outdoor applications

Philips Lighting, a Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) company and global leader in lighting, announces its SR certified program to list all companies, components, sensors and control systems that work with its Philips Xitanium SR drivers. These innovative LED drivers for connected lighting applications have additional integrated functions that eliminate the need for auxiliary components. This makes designing and installing wireless-controlled light fixtures less complex and therefore more cost-efficient. The SR driver platform was successfully launched in 2014 for indoor commercial office lighting and will be introduced for outdoor applications during 2016.

The Philips Xitanium sensor ready concept highlights Philips’ open approach to solution development by providing more flexibility when choosing connected lighting components. OEM partners can quickly integrate a driver into their fixtures, while being reassured of compatibility with other system elements.

Thanks to the Xitanium SR driver, which works seamlessly with a wide range of sensors, lighting can play a bigger role in network connectivity. It is an ‘open standard’ building block with added intelligence that makes it easier and more practical to add sensing and wireless connectivity to light fixtures.

Gijs von Morgen, responsible for the SR certified program, says: “In the past, realizing wireless connected lighting was complex. Data communication between driver and sensors, and the wireless network required extra components and often used different communication protocols. The Xitanium SR driver changes this. By standardizing on DALI 2.0 based protocols and integrating extra functionality, we reduce complexity and cost. The Philips Xitanium SR drivers enable every light fitting to be a wireless point.”

The ‘sensor ready’ concept also represents a breakthrough in cost per node by eliminating the installation of extra control boxes and power supplies. It also simplifies incorporating lighting into the Internet of Things.

Participation to the SR certified program is open to sensor manufacturers and network application providers who meet the Sensor Ready criteria.
