Tyrrell Products and Virtual Extension Cooperate to Offer Revolutionary Wireless DALI Extension to Tridium Niagara

Leigh, United Kingdom, March 28, 2017 –(– Tyrrell Products Ltd, the company that shapes the future of intelligent buildings, and Virtual Extension, the leader in wireless networks for Lighting Control, are pleased to announce their new cooperation. Its main focus is to foster the effectiveness and the quality of intelligent buildings’ LED lighting management. For achieving such performance, each company contributes a wealth of expertise, with Tyrrell sharing its Niagara know-how and eBMS integration capabilities with Virtual Extension’s next generation of Wireless extension to DALI’s flexibility, scalability and performance.

“Solutions providers and system integrators benefit from the cost savings and robustness that our solutions provide, the simplicity of replacing wires by wireless dramatically reducing the integration time,” said Yariv Oren. “Virtual Extension understands its customers need to become more effective and competitive. By combining our experience and technology with the expertise of innovative companies such as Tyrrell Products, customers can benefit from an unparalleled set of next-generation BMS solutions.”

“This cooperation has resulted in a valuable solution that customers will immediately find valuable,” said Ged Tyrrell, Managing Director of Tyrrell Products. “We’ve been pleased to work with Virtual Extension to integrate their wireless IoT for DALI solution with the latest Niagara framework, for providing a robust solution, which easily scales to thousands of DALI luminaires, suited for large industrial and commercial sites as well as for very large outdoor lighting installations,” he added.

Virtual Extension’s VEmesh IoT Extension to DALI solution (or E2D, for Ethernet to DALI) enables the use of DALI luminaires in a cloud (IoT) controlled wireless network. The choice of DALI luminaires and controls is usually due to DALI interchangeability benefit, which is important especially in very large deployments. In such cases the robustness of the wireless network is paramount and that’s precisely one of the areas that VEmesh and E2D outshines other systems around.

Furthermore, E2D’s open protocol enables partners to employ the advanced capabilities of an advanced hub, such as the one offered by Tyrrell Products.

The integrated technology offered by Tyrrell takes full advantage of existing data in the connected systems, delivering more benefits at a lower cost for a faster return on investment, providing a common user interface that gives detailed and specific information, proactive and informed choices can be made when solving problems or improving efficiency.
