Murata launches fixture-integrated sensor with Bluetooth mesh connectivity

Murata has selected Silvair’s Bluetooth mesh stack and commissioning platform for its fixture-integrated sensor which is one of the first commercially available products with Bluetooth mesh connectivity for professional lighting.

Integrated into a small cylindrical package, the sensor combines occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, 0-10V analogue dimming and Bluetooth mesh radio circuits that uses Silvair’s Bluetooth mesh stack. When used with 0-10V dim-to-off LED drivers, it enables any lighting manufacturer to deliver wirelessly-controllable and sensor-equipped fixtures with minimum engineering effort.

The sensor-equipped luminaires need to be connected to mains power and can be commissioned and configured using the Silvair Platform.

Taking advantage of Bluetooth mesh, the first wireless standard that ensures scalability and reliability, the wireless lighting control system can be expanded seamlessly with any Bluetooth mesh-certified products and/or compatible Bluetooth switches as needed.
