Gooee has announced the launch of a new Wireless Interface Module, the WIM-D2, along with it’s compatibility with Philips SR and OSRAM DEXEL drivers. This news allows lighting manufacturers to retain their current driver supplier and benefit from Gooee’s interoperable IoT platform.

This Wireless Interface Module has been developed to control luminaires. Controlling the luminaires gives a unique opportunity to discover the efficiency of building environments by generating big data. Data about the current use of the office, warehouse, and shop floor gives essential insight into building usage that business owners have never had access to before. When analysed the data will transform the way buildings are run, reduce rental space costs, energy bills and have a positive impact on the environment and business bottom line.

The Gooee WIM-D2 DALI Dongle provides a wireless interface between DALI systems and the Gooee Building operating System (BoS). It functions on the DALI Bus as a controller providing a communications and sensing interface for a luminaire, utilising a powered DALI Bus for power.

The WIM-D2 can be connected to a wireless network for control via Gooee’s Bluetooth SmartMesh. The WIM-D2 provides power switching, dimming, power monitoring and DALI control functions.

In addition, the WIM-D2 also provides a 2-way I2C interface for the Gooee sensor module providing environment & light quality data. Data from sensors is encrypted locally and communication between WIMs and Gateways or MAPs is encrypted using AES128 within the mesh.

Neil Salt, MD & co-founder Gooee, says “We are pleased to announce that we are able to offer more options to lighting manufacturers around the world. The WIM-D2 is compatible with Philips SR and OSRAM DEXAL drivers and, in the future, will support reporting from multiple SR & Dexal drivers (up to 8) controlled as a single group. For those buildings already equipped with DALI systems, including DALI 1.0, 2.0 and the latest ‘dongle’ based DALI platforms, Gooee now has the ability to function with them. This is possible due to an update of the WIM-D2 being extended to include all DALI devices. The research and development will continue in order to increase the capability of the module.”
