In Las Vegas at the BICSI Fall Conference 2022 (Sep. 25-29) Sinclair Digital introduced its Agile-Core series of digital building infrastructure system products.
The new product platform is comprised of an addressable LED lighting system with advanced controls and sensors. The company said the platform is designed to simplify design, operation, and maintenance for single site and multi-site clients across global markets.
As reckoned by Sinclair, the lighting system marries Digital Electricity (DE) with the versatility of Power over Ethernet technologies to create "a globally scalable, easy to operate, data driven lighting and IoT sensor system." The company said the system leverages DC power and uses significantly less copper by eliminating line voltage AC power distribution.
As further contended by a Sinclair Digital press release:
"With the combination of DE and PoE, power and data can now be provided over PoE at significant distances for large-scale projects such as data centers, automated warehouses, lithium refining factories, large buildings, campuses and more.
This is the first truly globally accepted standardized lighting system making design of lighting systems truly scalable across a global enterprise."
Lowest embodied carbon
The company emphasized that Agile-Core is "a modular, resilient, easy to connect, and lowest embodied carbon addressable LED lighting system." As a digital system, Sinclair said its Agile-Core system "combines the best attributes (energy efficiency and safety) of Fault Managed (DC) power and Power over Ethernet."
The first product announced in the solution series is the Agile-Core for Data Centers and Automated Warehouses offering.
According to Sinclair, the Agile-Core system is currently being deployed at a world class 400,000+ sq. ft. automated warehouse in the Dallas Fort Worth, Texas area.
The company noted the Agile-Core solution:
"...was selected because of its granularity of control, flexibility, cost-effectiveness, energy savings, and because it presents no risk of interfering with wirelessly communicating automated mobile machinery that are prevalent on site."
The Agile-Core platform is currently on display at the BICSI Fall Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas, housed within the AEM Test & Measurement booth #624.
