Sensity Systems, Inc. Key Developments

Sensity Systems Announces New NetSense Core Node EX

Sensity Systems announced its new NetSense Core Node EX. The Core Node EX provides greater integration flexibility, with a smaller, sleeker hardware form-factor and support for an external NEMA receptacle connector (ANSI 136.41) to simplify deployment of NetSense nodes with LED roadway light fixtures. In addition, the integrated NEMA connector allows existing LED deployments to quickly and easily be retrofitted with the Core Node technology – creating a single, pervasive Light Sensory Network out of existing and new LED fixtures. The new Core Node EX is ideal for lighting manufacturers that are interested in providing both lighting control and advanced applications and services, such as public safety and security, smart parking, traffic, and more on their existing luminaires without developing new software or hardware. The new Core Node EX provides advanced lighting control capabilities and also collects sensor information, such as ambient light, motion detection, temperature, and power monitoring. Tapping into its technology expertise, process integration know-how, and strong partnerships, Sensity designed the new core node to be low-cost, lightweight, and adaptable to be deployed alongside any third-party lighting fixture via a NEMA socket. As a result, NetSense Lighting Manufacturer Partners can quickly respond to, participate in, and meet the requirements of Smart City projects. The Core Node EX’s newest functionality includes: Mounted externally using a 7-Pin NEMA receptacle connector (ANSI 136.41) to control LED luminaires. Built-in power to support the NetSense Video Node and other auxiliary devices, such as networking equipment. Built-in communications bus to allow the Core Node to collect and transmit meta-data from attached auxiliary devices and additional sensors. Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled for rapid and error-free commissioning and ongoing asset management. Utility Grade Metering for energy savings and verification.
