Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON):
What: Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ: ELON), the world’s leading control
networking platform provider, will host demos of its IzoT™ platform for the
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and of advanced lighting control
technologies at Light + Building, the world’s biggest trade fair for lighting
and building-services technology.
Echelon demos will take place at three of its partners’ booths:
*Demo of Echelon’s ‘IzoT in a Box’ for the IIoT: In the LonMark Germany
booth, Echelon will showcase and take orders for its recently introduced
‘IzoT in a Box’ FT 6000 Evaluation and Development Kit (EVK), based on its
IzoT platform for the IIoT. The EVK speeds development of building
automation devices using Echelon’s multiprotocol FT 6050 system on chip
(SoC), which supports both LonWorks® and BACnet® protocols over IP. The
EVK contains all the essential elements for creating, testing and
deploying devices and control applications for the IIoT.
Also in the LonMark Germany booth, Echelon OEM customer Distech Controls
(www.distech-controls.eu) will demonstrate its RCL Light/Blind Series
lighting and sunblind controllers—previously LonTalk-only products—using
the IzoT-enabled FT 6050 SoC to support both native IP-addressed LonTalk
over FT and BACnet/IP over FT at the same time.
*Demo of Lighting 2.0: Located in The Future Room in Xicato’s
(www.xicato.com) massive booth, Echelon will showcase its proof of concept
(PoC) for Lighting 2.0—the convergence of networking, building automation
and lighting technologies—based on Xicato’s new XIM intelligent Internet
of Lights platform. Powered by upcoming Echelon DC voltage control
systems, the new platform demonstrates how the Industrial Internet of
Things can become a reality in professionally lit spaces. Echelon will
also demonstrate existing control products for low-voltage indoor
*Demo of ‘follow-me’ lighting control solution for outdoor lighting: In the
LonMark International (www.lonmark.org) booth, Echelon will demonstrate
its outdoor lighting ‘follow-me’ lighting control solution. The demos will
show luminaires and sensors from multiple suppliers connected and
interoperating in a mixed wired and wireless network. They will also
highlight streetlight-specific features available from LonMark members,
such as real-time control, command and monitoring, historical datalog,
advanced scheduling and alarming, astronomical clock, and dynamic lighting
based on weather and traffic sensors.
When: The Light + Building booths will be open March 30 – April 4, 2014
Where: Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre, Frankfurt, Germany.
