Echelon to Host ‘IzoT in a Box,’ ‘Internet of Lights’ and ‘Follow-Me Lighting’ Demos at Light + Building 2014 Show in Germany

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 lighting.
  • 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.

  • Xicato is in the Agora Hall, AG.0 Booth A10.
  • LonMark Germany is in Hall 9.0, Booth E10.
  • LonMark International is in Hall 5.0, Booth C12.
