Cortet by CEL introduces the E100 Gateway, described as a compact ZigBee unit measuring 2 in. x 2 in. x 1 in. that provides both local and IoT based control for a wide range of lighting devices, accessories, fixtures, controllers, and switches for small- or medium-scale commercial facilities. This means that lighting throughout the entire building can be controlled locally by a Cortet Certified control device talking directly to the gateway via ZigBee, or by a mobile device connected via Wi-Fi to the same network. In addition, the building’s entire lighting system can be controlled remotely via a mobile device accessing the Gateway via the internet. The E100 can enable all of these management modes simultaneously.
With a range of up to 100 meters and typical latency of less than 200 ms, the scalable IoT network can support 120 devices in 30 different rooms. By using range extenders and/or additional Gateways, this network can further scale throughout an entire facility.
The E100 Gateway and Cortet technology supports code compliant requirements for task scheduling, occupancy sensing, and daylight harvesting. Flexible, it can be used to schedule and automate lighting based on specific commercial lighting needs. The current software supports up to four different daily programmable schedules with up to two-day groupings, e.g., Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri + Sat/Sun per room. The gateway can also be used to adjust color and temperature on light sources that support these features.
