A Comparison of Low Voltage & Overlay Lighting Systems
Abstract: Almost every lighting control system available today is an overlay system. An overlay system uses either a wireless or wired network to control AC line voltage powered lights. These systems are called overlay systems because the control network is overlaid on top of the existing AC lighting power infrastructure. Low voltage lighting control systems, in contrast, supply an intelligent low-voltage network that both powers and controls LED light fixtures in a single system, in addition to providing building intelligence. This eliminates the need for costly and inflexible line voltage installation and provides a far more efficient lighting system.
Redwood System Architecture White Paper
Abstract: This paper describes Redwood Systems’ building-performance lighting platform that: 1) powers and controls lights over a single low voltage wire or category cable, 2) includes a fine-grain sensor network that constantly gathers data about the facility, and 3) is built upon an open software platform that is able to provide bi-directional communication with building automation systems and other applications. This architectural approach is proven to save an average of 75% energy consumption from lighting, while providing information about how a facility is lit, heated and occupied.
Lighting and the Efficient Data Center White Paper
Abstract: While a common approach to lighting in data centers is to leave the lights off, there are practical reasons why many data centers cannot adopt that approach. Though lighting is not a major component of the energy load in a data center, it is an infrastructure area that is relatively easy to address. Redwood Systems’ Building-Performance Lighting Platform is one of the more efficient methods of lighting a data center.
