Lux Awards 2017: Osram gains “Controls Product of the Year”


Encelium Wireless, Osram’s highly secure wireless light management system convinced the judges at this year’s Lux Awards as a “flexible and powerful wireless control system”. Therefore, it has been awarded best product in the category “Controls Product of the Year”. Encelium Wireless was designed from the ground up as a software-based, integrated light management system that dynamically responds to the changing characteristics of a building by providing the right amount of light when and where required. Thereby it facilitates energy savings. It is suitable for offices, industry and warehouses, shops and sport halls.

Suitable for any building size and working properly in a wireless mesh, it offers a unique benefit in the industry, which is especially important for larger projects. The judges were especially impressed by the core element of Encelium: Polaris 3D. The 3D color gradient visualization shows how efficient the installation is and immediately reports the savings achieved. Together with the Encelium hardware and the field elements of the system it is possible to increase energy savings by up to 75 percent.
