Virtual Extension has announced the addition of a new device to its line of VEmesh E2D IoT Extension to DALI high-performance devices. The new Bridge Module device has been developed after listening to the needs of one of Virtual Extension major customers. To succeed in developing such a high-performance and at the same time affordable device, the E2D Bridge Module development success has been inspired by the design-to-cost approach. Following the customer’s tests, the new Bridge Module has been made available for the customer off-the-shelf.
The new device uses the same high-performance VEmesh technology that has been recognized by IEC and used by the company in all its lighting control products. This IEC protocol 62386-104, known as wireless DALI, includes VEmesh as its only mesh technology that takes advantage of using all the available RF propagation paths, while operating in the industrial-grade sub‑1GHz frequency band, as opposed to the overcrowded 2.4 GHz.
Additional advantages result from VEmesh low latency, for all the lamps to turn on simultaneously and from enabling VEmesh products to follow all the relevant parts of IEC62386 protocol, for a highly reliable and scalable high-performance wireless network.
“Virtual Extension is supporting our values of acting in a cooperative and quick manner in projects where performance is critical, towards a friendlier and more sustainable world. Such partnership fits with our strategy of commitment to the accomplishments of our global clients”, states Juan Ramón Santos, CMO, Normagrup.
“We are excited about this new type of E2D Bridge and thrilled to bring it to market in cooperation with such a highly professional customer” says Yariv Oren, Virtual Extension CEO. “Our standard E2D Bridge has been a successful IoT extension to DALI Bridge for years, and the new module takes all its best high-performance features, reduces its power-consumption and size, to perfect the match to this Lighting Control OEM market” he added.
