Cree Lands Another Power over Ethernet Lighting Installation at a Data Center

Cree has landed its latest PoE lighting installation in a deal that sets up the customer as a Cree reseller. The Durham, NC LED company is providing 100 2×2-ft luminaires and its SmartCast PoE software to technology and cloud computing services company Quest, for use in Quest’s Roseville, CA data center. The luminaires draw both data and a maximum of 30W of electricity from Ethernet cable that is part of the information network at the 120,000-ft2 facility. PoE lighting is an example of the Internet of Things (IoT) — by tying LED luminaires into the data center’s network, Quest can more intelligently control the lights, turning them on, off, up, down, or changing their color temperature as needed. The PoE system includes occupancy sensors that help the software decide how to adjust lighting, and it also collects data to help with building management. http://www.ledsmagazine.com/
