     controlled luminaires
•    Philips SR, Osram, Dexal, DALI and -V ready
•    Small dimensions
•    Standard Zhaga interface
•    Luxon Cloud compatible
•    Easy to install
•    Integrated lux and temperature sensor
•    OTA programming

Nedap Luxon Cloud features:
•    Time, daylight, motion and dim control
•    Direct motion sensor control
•    Flexible group assigning
•    Multi-site management
•    Management reports
•    Calculated energy logging

With the introduction of the outdoor node, Nedap is taking the next step in connectivity for the lighting market. Jeroen Somsen, managing director at Nedap Light Controls: "We've seen many solutions that focus on office environments and homes, but for industrial applications with outdoor locations, development has lagged behind. It's a missed opportunity, because this is precisely where a lot of energy is consumed, and where maintenance is a challenge. With the Luxon IoT Node Outdoor, we're offering a solution through connectivity that will have a significant impact on energy consumption and operational costs, especially in demanding environments. While a LED retrofit halves energy consumption, connected lighting reduces energy consumption by as much as 75 percent."
