Add a Smart sensors

For max. power savings

Increase the buildings awareness of it occupants with a sensor per fitting, allowing shorter idle times and less false triggers.

 

use motion and light sensors to reduce energy consumption of the buildings lighting. Sense light and colour everywhere in the building, with the zencontrol smart sensor you get per fitting lux control for the best results when daylight harvesting. Use the colour sensor to understand how the CRI has changed over time.

Occupancy data

Occupancy maps are visual reports on area utilisation and are perfect for designers and building managers looking to better understand their building usage

Cloud

Gain better occupancy data on the cloud with a per fitting solution

Energy savings

Improve the buildings energy savings with per fitting dimming, daylight harvesting and motion detection

Sensor-Per-Fitting-Solution

 

zencontrol has perfected “sensor per-fitting” technology with its Smart driver.

Developed as a factory fitted, standardized, plug & play driver, the zc-smart-driver is a Digital Addressable Lighting Interface version 2 (IEC62386 V2) compliant solution that offers a lower overall cost of installation, reduced purchase price and lower commissioning cost linked to each individual light fitting and sensor, now operating as a single unit.

 

zencontrol has tried to help by highlighting common issues related to design, cost and operation when combining a sensor, in a short explainer-video.

IR control

 

Sensors are fitted with an infrared receiver that allows them to be used in conjunction with an IR control unit, zencontrol offers two IR options for varied range of control. The hand-held zc-ir-ctrl remote is fitted with 24 buttons that provides basic luminaire programming functions. This includes 16 pre-configured features and up to eight custom programmable button features. The hand-held zc-ir-ctrl-com remote is fitted with 44 buttons that provides extensive luminaire programming functions ideal for commissioning. 

Add a Smart emergency

Turns your luminaire into a fully compliant emergency fitting

Add a battery to turn your luminaire into a fully compliant emergency fitting with full IEC62386 compliance to device type 1. Download the datasheets of our different emergency options below.

Wireless

Test and monitor your emergency fitting using zencontrol’s Wi-Fi app

DALI

When connected to DALI the driver operates as a fully compliant IEC62386 device.

Self-test

Without DALI the driver operates as a fully compliant self-test device

Plug-in smart emergency

Well suited for OEM installations, it adds emergency to any product

Plug-in smart exit

A simple setup unlike any other exit, with multiple mounting options

Plug-in smart spot

There is not a spot this little emergency luminaire wont fit, small and discreet.

Plug-in smart spot

 

The Smart spot, emergency luminaire, is perfect for pairing with a Smart Driver and converting traditional lighting into emergency. When using a smart plug-in emergency option, the driver supports IEC62386-202, device type 1 allowing for emergency testing and management. Additionally, the driver can perform as a self-test unit or in standalone configuration. The Smart Spot can be built into a light fitting or comes witch a wide range of mounting accessories: recessed, surface, conduit mount. You can download the datasheets below for more details.

Plug-in smart exit

 

Like the other accessories the zencontrol Slimblade Smart Exit is also a simple plug and play solution meaning all you need to do is plug into the Smart driver using the supplied RJ12 cable and its ready to go. The exit is IEC62386-202 device type 1 with easy plug-in upgrades for battery and test switch.  You can download the datasheet below for more specifications.

Expanded functionality

A driver unlike any other

Dual luminaire

 

Traditionally, two light fittings connected to a single driver has been problematic. In a series connection, a single fitting failure would result in both fittings failing, while in a parallel connection, voltage drop and loading would cause significant issues.

 

The Smart driver has two independent outputs allowing optimal performance and correct control of each luminaire. In the event of a single luminaire failure the second luminaire will continue to function.

Cloud

Test and monitor your emergency fitting using zencontrol Cloud

Double string

Add a second string and the driver becomes a DALI device type 8 device automatically, allowing for application which require tuneable white.

Single string

With only a single LED string connected the driver works as a standard DALI device type 6 LED driver.

Dual colour output

 

The smart driver supports two individual channels of lights allowing for circadian rhythm installations, device type 8

Power measurements

 

The driver and sensor can record several key elements, which when sent to the zencontrol Cloud provide valuable information. For example each smart driver can measure and report on its own power consumption allowing for a better understanding of the buildings energy consumption.

  • Per fitting power usage
  • Lamp life and emergency lamp data
  • Lifetime data of the product including reliability
  • Activity and occupancy heat mapping
  • Lux level readings (avg/min/max)

Add a DALI sensor / switch

 

Add value to your luminaire with the smart ports on the zencontrol drivers your fitting adds value to the installation. Connect standard switches or 240 V sensors directly to the luminaires and have them operate as fully compliant IEC62386 version 2 devices that can control anything on the DALI line.

 

Utilise the lux feature found in most 240 V sensors to enable dusk mode on the sensor.

Third party IoT ready

 

zencontrol smart drivers allows for third parties to add an IoT extension without adding external power supplies or other bulky accessories.

 

Third party manufactures can communicate directly with the smart driver over the UART connection, which uses IEC62386-104 to send DALI packets directly to the driver. This high speed connection allows for faster access and control with the driver and provides sensors and switch feedback directly to the IoT extension.

Select your output

 

With easily selectable jumpers an OEM can choose the power or current that suits the application.

Constant current

Select from a range of constant current settings

Constant power

Choose to run your zencontrol driver in constant power mode for better results

Fine selection

Use the zencontrol tools to adjust the output current to the precise requirements in 10 mA increments

Multiple installation methods

Designed for OEMs in mind

OEMs have the choice of installation methods to best suit the application.
With a soft-wired driver an installer can choose their cable system independent to the luminaire.

Push terminals

Plugs

Screw terminals

Driver link

Achieve a smart room configuration without the need for complex lighting control systems

Expandability

Connect a DALI control system for expanded functionality, monitoring and control (optional).

Driver link connection

Connect two drivers together via an RJ12 driver-link cable to suit a small office.

Slave luminaire (optional)

Slave luminaire connected to the second output channel on the driver (max 2x20W).
