In addition, the TOP900 family of wireless controllers features three products, each offering advanced capability and control for all types of dimmable lightings (LED, eHID, plasma and induction). Echelon products offer lighting professionals options to connect virtually any fixture, in any location, wired or wireless.
Echelon’s outdoor lighting control platform

Lumewave RF+Powerline Gateway (LPG) — bridging wired and wireless control networks
Lumewave RF+Powerline Gateway (LPG) is an industry-exclusive solution that integrates wired (powerline) and wireless (RF) integrated control networks utilizing a single CMS interface. The hybrid solution is suited for large outdoor lighting installations where a variety of light poles and fixtures are used, including historic or decorative fixtures. In addition, Echelon’s Powerline technology provide reliable and viable solutions for many challenging environments — such as tunnels and bridges —where RF cannot work.
The recently announced, Lumewave by Echelon CMS 5.0 software, improves control of the network and provides in depth system-wide on-demand reports to view performance and operations. From a granular per node view, by group view, or the entire site, administrators have real time access of current and predictive data as well as charts/graphics to better understand usage and comparisons of current and historical data.
