Elgin, Illinois July 27, 2016—Thomas Research Products, a division of Hubbell Lighting, has announced its membership in the ZigBee Alliance – a non-profit association of organizations creating open, global standards that define the foundation for the Internet of Things (IoT) used in consumer, commercial and industrial applications. Thomas Research Products has joined the Alliance as an Adopter member.
Thomas Research Products (TRP), a division of Hubbell Lighting, manufactures complete SSL power and control solutions for OEMs. The company also offers custom engineering and manufacturing services for LED light engines and fixtures.
The ZigBee Alliance’s mission is to create, maintain and deliver the highest performing specifications, standards and solutions for the wireless IoT. The widespread availability of ZigBee-certified devices gives developers and users more flexibility to choose products they know will work with each other. The Alliance simplifies IoT product development and deployment, reduces industry confusion through the availability of a consolidated set of open application device definitions, and helps members bring the benefits and capabilities of connected IoT devices to a significantly broader range of applications and markets.
“Thomas Research Products is the newest addition to the ZigBee Alliance family, and we welcome them to the ever growing ecosystem that simplifies IoT connections and interoperability for commercial applications.” said Victor Berrios, Vice President of Technology, ZigBee Alliance.
Thomas Research Products has also introduced its first certified product as part of the Alliance. The TCM-ZB-D wireless driver control module is a ZigBee Home Automation-certified lighting control product.
The TCM-ZB-D control module is designed for use with LED luminaires powered by TRP’s LED drivers. The device provides wireless ON/OFF with full 0-10V dimming control. This allows end users to take advantage of the full spectrum of today’s lighting control strategies, such as daylight harvesting. The module also stores the last dim setting when powered off. With a small case designed to easily fit in most luminaires, the module operates fixtures on 100-277V circuits. The module is also plenum rated for use in ceiling spaces.
“TRP focuses on wireless lighting controls for OEMs that provide simplicity and flexibility to our customers,” said TRP Brand Vice President, Greg Andrews. “Being part of the ZigBee Alliance allows us to contribute to a meaningful IoT experience as the marketplace delivers smarter products and seamless connections. Adding ZigBee compatibility to our control options helps our customers meet evolving energy codes and regulations.”
