Gateway controls up to 1,000 wireless outdoor lights

June 14, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Hubbell Control Solutions has updated its wiSCAPE Gateway, making it easy to manage, monitor and measure wireless outdoor lighting networks.

The new gateway manages up to 1,000 wiSCAPE fixture modules, controlling dimming, scheduling and motion detection features. For enhanced network management and security, the device operates on Windows 7 Professional Edition. IT Administrators can easily manage it as they do all the PCs on their network. The unit comes with BACnet IP built-in support, allowing a Building Management System BACnet controller to see the gateway as a BACnet device.

After pairing, the BMS system can control individual fixture modules, groups of modules and execute scenarios with total granularity. The wiSCAPE gateway turns stand-alone fixture modules into a secure peer-to-peer, self-organizing and self-healing mesh infrastructure. The wireless distributed control technology adapts easily to complex situations for quick, simple and economical commissioning and operation. The unit comes with the wiSCAPE View software suite for real-time access and control over multiple wiSCAPE Gateways and individual fixtures from one location with map and satellite views.
