TE Connectivity Introduces LUMAWISE Endurance S Module for Smarter Street Lighting Applications

Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, has introduced a new compact connectivity solution for street lighting with LED light sources. TE´s LUMAWISE Endurance S module consists of a standardized interface between the receptacle and module base or sealing cap. Which uses an integrated single gasket that can accommodate and seal both luminaire and module using the same connection interface for either 40 mm or 80 mm diameter central management systems.

Central management systems offer more control, better programming, and higher efficiencies for LED lighting systems. The LUMAWISE Endurance S module offers greater flexibility in luminaire design and street lighting architecture. The system is field upgradeable, making it possible to simply and quickly upgrade existing luminaires.

Stand-alone system or complementary to ANSI/NEMA solution
Specifically for outdoor LED light sources and drivers, LUMAWISE Endurance S has been designed as a standalone system and can be used in a complementary function as an auxiliary sensor module when additional functionality is required in ANSI/NEMA based fixtures. Installation is easy due to its simple push-and-twist lock feature which does not require any tools and can be completed using one hand. The LUMAWISE Endurance S module can be mounted in any direction and offers improved sealing when compared to other systems. Modules can be exchanged and upgraded in only a few seconds without having to electrically isolate the lighting pole.

LUMAWISE Endurance S was co-developed with several partners to ensure a complete system is available, including application specific drivers and control nodes. TE also collaborated with the Zhaga Consortium, a global lighting-industry organization that standardizes components of LED luminaires.

Jonathan Catchpole, system architect at TE Connectivity said: “The development of this new module was a collaborative process with the Zhaga Consortium, in which we were able to apply our extensive experience and expertise in street-light connectors. The focus of developing the new specification, Book 18, was to demonstrate the potential of new architecture and new functionalities which can create value for developers, installers and users of outdoor lighting. With an increased use of LED in outdoor applications comes a growing need for control of the LED for efficiency, maintenance and cost savings.”

“The standardized interface defined in Zhaga Book 18 enables the installation of future-proofed outdoor LED luminaires, which can be easily upgraded with smart communication and sensing capabilities,” said Dee Denteneer, Secretary General of Zhaga. “We are pleased to see that member companies including TE are already using the specification to develop products that will stimulate the market for smart outdoor LED luminaires.”
