Data Center Taps Power Over Ethernet Lighting For Extra Big Energy Savings

A Long Island data center has installed Power over Ethernet LED lighting at a new 40,000-ft2 facility, where it hopes the technology leads to 70% less energy consumption than “conventional” low-energy LED lighting would. mindSHIFT Technologies is running both electricity and operating instructions via Ethernet cable to 452 new Cree LED light fixtures at the building in Commack, NY. The $160,000 implementation is part of Cree’s new PoE partnership with Ethernet networking giant Cisco, and included systems integration work by Bay Shore, NY-based A+ Technology and Security Solutions. PoE lighting vendors say the technology saves a lot of money in new construction costs because it eliminates the need for conventional electrical wiring and electricians. Because low-energy LED lighting is low voltage, Ethernet cable can handle the power. The Ethernet system, including cable and boxes known as switches, provides the added benefit of routing instructions and other data to and from the troffers. http://www.ledsmagazine.com
