A digital, wireless programming method utilizing near-field communication has been successfully standardized by MD-SIG members, a consortium of the lighting industry (NFC).
Manufacturers may wirelessly configure LED driver operational parameters via NFC, including operating current, constant lumen output, and dimming levels.
The NFC Programmable Device includes an antenna and NFC Tag. Without unlocking the device, the antenna can be utilized for NFC data transfer because of the manner it is installed within. The NFC Tag contains an EEPROM for data storage as well as an NFC transceiver for connecting to the antenna.
NFC programming has a lower learning curve for production-line employees and is quicker than conventional LED driver programming procedures. It is also more feature-rich and adaptable than resistor-setting methods.
Future applications of this technology could include the installation and upkeep of street lighting luminaires, among other potential in-field services.
The Global NFC programmable lighting market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
New generation 40W to 120W NFC programmable D4i LED driver from uPowerTek. The newest D4i standard is met by the new goods. This new series also supports NFC programming, allowing users to set the output current as well as other features using an NFC programmer or a smartphone equipped with NFC technology.
The new DiiA specifications D4i, which are based on DALI-2 and enable DALI in the IoT era, primarily focus on intra-luminaire DALI for power supplies.
A wide input voltage range of 90-305Vac, IP67 waterproof level, and 10kV surge protection provide reliability for outdoor applications in the next generation NFC programmable D4i LED driver. Japanese NCC and RUBYCON capacitors help products last 100k hours.
This series also offers a 24V 3W auxiliary power option, which can be used to power smart controllers or sensors while also streamlining system design and enhancing reliability.
