C3 Lighting Solutions Develops a Breakthrough Networked LED Lighting Management Solution

C3 Lighting Solutions, Inc. develops a breakthrough technology that changes the way LED lighting is powered and controlled. The new technology has made what was once impossible, possible. C3 Lighting Solutions' networked system places the power, dimming control, scheduling and energy management of LED lighting in a single, centrally located device separate from the LED fixtures.

C3’s products have captured the attention of the lighting industry by reducing the complexity, size, weight and cost of LED fixtures, power supplies and controls, in addition to eliminating the need for metal conduit and large gauge wiring in most lighting installations. This technology allows the wiring for lighting to be similar to what is typically used for in-wall speaker systems, greatly reducing installation costs and providing a substantial reduction in a buildings’ carbon footprint.     

“Remotely locating and combining the power, control, and energy management of an entire LED lighting system in one device provides countless advantages over current LED and fluorescent lighting that require AC power to be ran to a ballast or LED driver in each fixture.” Said Rick Farrell, President of C3 Lighting Solutions, Inc.  Microprocessor control, on-board memory and a clockcalendar allow dimming of any light or room in a building, scheduling when a light will be on or off, changing the color of light output, programming “dawn-to-dusk” illumination indoors, and monitoring energy usage. This technology can power and control up to 50,000 watts of DC power and interfaces with most industry standard lighting control systems. Control can be wired or wireless and will also accept DMX commands.

C3’s remote power technology can switch between AC, solar, wind, hydrogen cell, or battery stored power and can also supply DC power for office or personal electronic devices. This allows the system to function as a building’s “DC Micro-grid”.  
C3’s power and control network for lighting can serve as the communication backbone for a Building Management System without incurring the expense of the additional wiring typically required. C3’s technology makes lighting a managed resource and the investment even more compelling with its substantial reduction in environmental impact.
