End of Life (EOL) in EMEA for JACE 300E series

The performance, flexibility and range of accessory options offered by the JACE® 8000 surpasses that of the JACE 300E series products.

The introduction of the JACE 8000 100-point software license allows the JACE 8000 to be used cost-effectively for projects where JACE 300E series products would have been previously considered. We are therefore now starting the End of Life (EOL) process for all JACE 300E series products, in both “bundled” and “unbundled” formats.
These are the start of EOL and Last Time Buy (LTB) dates for new installations, subject to product availability:

Product Start of EOL LTB Replacement recommendation
JACE 300E 01/07/17 31/12/18 JACE 8000 with appropriate points license
JACE 300E DEMO 01/07/17 31/12/18 JACE 8000 DEMO

We will be offering service replacement parts for currently installed JACE 300E series products until 01/07/21, while supplies last.

Reference documents
Maintenance Policy – lists the end of support periods for the various builds of the Niagara Framework®
Software Maintenance Terms and Conditions – recommended for inclusion in any service contract
Please refer to the current price list when purchasing any of these products before the LTB date. Contact your Tridium representative or supportemea@tridium.com if you have questions.

Fulham Acquires Control Network Solutions to Bring DALI® Control to Customers for Emerging Smart Lighting Products

CNS’s Smart Light Management Software and Technical Expertise Helps Fulham Meet Growing Demand for DALI-enabled Clever LED Drivers and Smart Lighting Controls

HAWTHORNE, Calif. – April 18, 2017 – Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced the acquisition of the assets of partner company Control Network Solutions (CNS), the UK-based creator of the elitedali™ smart lighting control and management system. This transaction continues Fulham’s strategic European expansion.

Fulham has been developing its relationship with CNS for over a year and utilising CNS’s elitedali to help its partners provide complete smart lighting control systems.

Based on the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) lighting communications standard, elitedali simplifies installation, commissioning, and control of lighting systems. Enhancing Building Management Systems (BMS) and Edge Control devices, elitedali provides total control over individual LED fixtures, including reducing input current, managing output to optimise useful life, adjusting lighting to dim at a constant level, and adjusting power output to accommodate different light sources.

With this acquisition, Fulham can now offer a DALI and web-based convergent smart lighting solution to meet increased demand from customers worldwide. For Fulham customers in Europe and India, CNS’s smart lighting platform meets the immediate need for DALI-based lighting control solutions.

“We developed clever LED lighting components that are intelligent and programmable so luminaire manufacturers can customise solid-state lighting products in a customer-valued way. With the acquisition of CNS, we now have the remaining components needed to move from clever to smart lighting products – communications and control system software,” said Bob Howard-Anderson, Fulham CEO. “elitedali technology aligns with our vision of standards-based smart lighting controls and allows us to meet increasing customers’ demands for DALI-enabled lighting solutions based upon multi-vendor choice, flexibility and real-time device data for analytics, and effectively lays the foundation for the coming of smart lighting.”

Mike Welch, founder of CNS, will continue with Fulham as Vice President, Controls Business Development. In his new role, Welch will continue to support more than 40 elitedali™ resellers worldwide and help shape Fulham’s clever lighting strategy as well as new smart lighting products and solutions.

The elitedali solution is based on the Niagara® software framework from Tridium, an independent business entity of Honeywell International. Niagara is used by hundreds of OEMs and resellers to craft Building, Data Center and Smart City management systems.

“We are excited to be able to leverage Fulham’s global brand and resources to accelerate the market reach of elitedali,” said Welch. “Becoming a part of Fulham will allow us to provide better support our growing Niagara Community Partners, enabling them to participate in larger lighting control projects.”

Fulham already incorporates DALI support into a variety of its LED driver products, including the programmable WorkHorse LED drivers and the company’s new Lumo series of European LED drivers. Fulham offers CNS partners direct access to DALI-compatible driver products through Fulham’s global network of distributors, and works with a network of OEM luminaire manufacturers that incorporate the company’s DALI drivers.

Enocean Wireless/Batteryless Devices and Niagara

Innovation is a process in which, by definition, an idea develops into a technology which then ends up being pervasive in the market. Usually, such an innovation process takes time. EnOcean has successfully achieved this for energy harvesting wireless solutions within only a few years. Only in the past few months, EnOcean had tripled its revenue by quarter. This significant business growth particularly confirms: batteries are outdated; the market demands energy harvesting to power wireless solutions. EnOcean and its partners such as Control Network Solutions (CNS) continue to be innovative – just according to the motto “Innovation never stops, never stop innovation”.
Now see how CNS’s is “Driving Enocean for Niagara Networks” in this document.
