Nedap is introducing the Luxon IoT Node to the UK-market during LuxLive in London. The Node features a tiny electronic device that connects luminaires, regardless of brand, to the Luxon light management system in a cost-effective manner. This technology has been developed in line with Nedap’s ambitions to make connected lighting widely available and to unlock and sustain the full potential of LED lighting.
The Luxon IoT Node connects LED luminaires to a mesh network. Lights are driven by demand using multiple control strategies and only switched on where and when needed.

The Luxon IoT Node differs from other connected lighting products on the market due to its ease of integration and extended functionality, such as performance monitoring and remote diagnostics. The Node complies with all major LED driver interfaces including Philips Xitanium SR. Due to its innovative and smart design, the Luxon IoT Node has been nominated at the Lux Awards in the ‘Connected Lighting Innovation of the Year’ category. The winner will be announced at LuxLive 2017.
