New LED Dimmer From Opto 22 Connects to Serial Networks for Low-Voltage LED Lighting Control

Network LED Dimmer Provides Flicker-Free Control of 12/24 VDC LED Lamps, Bulbs, and Strips Over DMX, Modbus, and Optomux Serial Networks

TEMECULA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/13 -- Industrial automation manufacturer Opto 22 has announced the Network LED Dimmer, a compact, solid-state, and networkable LED dimmer that uses pulse width modulation (PWM) to control LED brightness (0-100%) for 9-30 VDC constant voltage LED lighting assemblies such as lamps, bulbs, strips, ropes, and bars. Used alone or teamed with other Dimmers, the Network LED Dimmer is suitable for any application that requires variable light from LEDs. Lighting designers, facility engineers, and architects can use the Dimmer in applications such as stage or accent lighting, LED color mixing, path marking, backlighting, and facade or wall lighting. When connected to an RS-485 serial network, multiple Network LED Dimmers can be integrated into a lighting, automation, or building control system that supports DMX512-A, Modbus/ASCII, or Optomux network protocols.

The compact and lightweight Network LED Dimmer is also suited for vehicle and vessel applications, where the energy efficiency and long life of low-voltage LED lighting is critical. Similarly, the Dimmer's small size benefits machine builders who need to implement LED lighting as part of their product.

The Dimmer includes a built-in test pushbutton for ramping LED intensity up and down, connectors for wiring a pushbutton for manual operation, and indicator lights to show serial communication and ramping operation.

As with other Opto 22 products, the Network LED Dimmer has a QR code imprinted on the inside cover that makes current documentation and configuration information available immediately. Scanning the QR code with a smartphone or other Internet-connected mobile device brings up product instructions, specifications, wiring, and an interactive utility for configuring internal DIP switches; see an example here: http://op22.co/LED-SPCV-LV100W (Note this page is styled for use with mobile devices.)

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
