Thomas Research Products Releases ZigBee-Certified Wireless Driver Control Module

Thomas Research Products, a division of Hubbell Lighting, has announced its membership in the ZigBee Alliance - a non-profit association of organizations creating open, global standards that define the foundation for the Internet of Things (IoT) used in consumer, commercial and industrial applications. Thomas Research Products has joined the Alliance as an Adopter member and is proud to announce the release of its first certified product, the TCM-ZB-D control module, which is designed for use with LED luminaires powered by TRP's LED drivers.

The ZigBee Alliance's mission is to create, maintain and deliver the highest performing specifications, standards and solutions for the wireless IoT. The widespread availability of ZigBee-certified devices gives developers and users more flexibility to choose products they know will work with each other.The Alliance simplifies IoT product development and deployment, reduces industry confusion through the availability of a consolidated set of open application device definitions, and helps members bring the benefits and capabilities of connected IoT devices to a significantly broader range of applications and markets.

"Thomas Research Products is the newest addition to the ZigBee Alliance family, and we welcome them to the ever growing ecosystem that simplifies IoT connections and interoperability for commercial applications." said Victor Berrios, Vice President of Technology, ZigBee Alliance.

The TCM-ZB-D control module is designed for use with LED luminaires powered by TRP's LED drivers. Thedevice provides wireless ON/OFF with full 0-10 V dimming control. This allows end users to take advantage of the full spectrum of today's lighting control strategies, such as daylight harvesting. The module also stores the last dim setting when powered off. With a small case designed to easily fit in most luminaires, the module operates fixtures on 100-277 V circuits. The module is also plenum rated for use in ceiling spaces.

"TRP focuses on wireless lighting controls for OEMs that provide simplicity and flexibility to our customers," said TRP Brand Vice President, Greg Andrews. "Being part of the ZigBee Alliance allows us to contribute to a meaningful IoT experience as the marketplace delivers smarter products and seamless connections. Adding ZigBeecompatibilityto our control optionshelps our customers meet evolving energy codes and regulations."
