Fixture embedded nLight AIR network interface

The fixture embedded nLight® AIR network interface called the rIO is a low voltage wireless device providing individual fixture control and digital dimming capabilities within Acuity Brands® LED luminaires with eldoLED® brand drivers. This smart device results in the luminaire being “nLight AIR-enabled” — making it both addressable as well as capable of digitally communicating with other nLight AIR wireless controls such as occupancy sensors, photocells, and wall switches. This allows for advanced operation and design flexibility ranging from stand-alone rooms to building and campus-wide networks.

As part of the nLight AIR wireless controls family, the rIO uses a 900MHz communication frequency that easily penetrates obstructions and its five-tier security architecture helps building owners and occupants rest easy.
