Molex and Deco Lighting Announce Collaboration

LED fixtures bring architectural lighting, quality, versatility and IoT / PoE-readiness to the Molex lineup

LISLE, IL – May 1, 2018 -  Molex today announced the expansion of its design portfolio of Molex PoE-Ready products, with the addition of Deco Lighting’s PoE-Ready Vector 2 LED light fixtures.

“The Vector 2 line enables us to confidently go to market with new options for lighting designers and architects who want to take full advantage of our innovative Molex IoT connected building backbone. This collaboration further extends our commitment to continued innovation for our customers,” said Mike Picini, vice president, Network Connected Solutions, Molex.

The versatile Deco Vector 2 LED light fixtures provide a wide range of features, including a slim 2.44” W x 5”H profile, assorted combinable lengths, direct/indirect light, color-tuning and three different mounting styles.

"We believe that the next generation of luminaire selection begins with the CIO or CTO of every organization because lighting is no longer a binary product that simply produces light; it’s now woven into the fabric of building intelligence, through interconnected systems such as Deco PoE powered by Molex," said Ben Pouladian, president and co-founder, Deco Lighting.

Together, Molex’s demonstrated capabilities in IoT/PoE network connected solutions and Deco’s portfolio of high-quality, architecturally-oriented fixtures will help accelerate adoption and broaden the IoT/PoE market. Deco is also a member of Molex’s Alliance of lighting experts working together to expand the range of options for network connected lighting in commercial buildings.

Network connected lighting from Molex is only one part of the Molex sensor solutions suite that enables architects, designers and building managers to maximize building control and efficiency by utilizing Molex’s Network Connected Solution. This network backbone is a cost-effective, IoT- and future-ready platform that also manages building feedback for presentation to an integrated building management system (IBMS). The backbone fully integrates current use cases such as lighting control and is ready for IoT developments into the future.

Molex and Deco will showcase their product line at LIGHTFAIR, May 8-10 held at McCormick Place, Chicago, in booth 1657 in the Design Pavilion.
