In the Zone: Multiple zone control system in one location

    Multiple zone control system in one location


    The Details

    Light System Manager gen6 (LSM gen6), via Ethernet connects to 3 separate networks consisting of Data Enabler Pro to various luminaires, which are triggered by Antumbra Touch Ethernet Keypads.


    The Scenario

    Here a single LSM gen6 controls a multi-zone Ethernet-based lighting system consisting of two interior zones and one exterior zone. 


    • Zone 1 contains Color Kinetics Blast IntelliHue luminaires displaying dynamic color-changing effects in the lobby.

    • Zone 2 contains a run of Color Kinetics PureStyle Compact Powercore, Intellihue luminaires in a large conference room cove, triggered by Antumbra Ethernet Touch Keypads.

    • Zone 3 controls the exterior lighting, where Color Kinetics ReachElite Powercore luminaires uplight the façade of the office building with washes of intense, saturated color. This color wash effect, triggered by a timeline managed by the LSM gen6, runs daily from sunset to sunrise.


    In addition to longer run lengths, Ethernet allows robust communication with each luminaire and device in the installation—and enables streamlined integration with a wide range of triggering devices.
