Murata is supplying Yamada Shomei Lighting Co., Ltd. with a proprietary wireless lighting control system. The wireless control system is at the heart of Yamada Shomei Lighting's ECOwine® wireless color and lighting solution*1 that was recently introduced at the Toyama Glass Art Museum. The system frees the museum from the physical constraints of lighting control wiring and enables versatile, easy-to-use lighting control, including dimming and color temperature control.
In conventional lighting control in a museum, which includes color temperature control (adjustment of color temperature such as warm white and cool white) and dimming (adjustment of brightness), lighting fixtures were controlled by the unit of each lighting track rail, or manually controlled one by one by adjusting the knobs on the lighting fixture. As a result, lighting fixtures need to be replaced one by one to adjust colors temperature for each display exhibit. Because this process is both costly and time-consuming, there has been a growing demand for simpler ways to control dimming and color temperature control of individual lighting fixtures.
In response, Murata has developed a wireless lighting control system with a communications capability that incorporates wireless modules on each lighting fixture. This system enables color temperature control, dimming of individual lighting fixture and management of an entire network of multiple lighting fixtures using wireless communication. The system makes it simple to achieve fine-grained scene composition by dimming and color temperature control of individual lighting fixtures resulting in lighting plan design flexibility and the elimination of wires.
