TimoTwo™- the next generation of wireless DMX – presented at Prolight + Sound

LumenRadio, world leader in providing reliable wireless DMX  is taking their patented technology to the next level with the release its new TimoTwoTM module.  The new TimoTwoTM will be showcased for the first time at the Prolight+Sound show in Frankfurt.

The TimoOneTM platform was launched in 2014 and enabled unprecedented reliable wireless DMX for fixture manufacturers. TimoTwoTM will be available for purchase in Q4 2018 and with patent pending DMXmeshTM option, reduced RF footprint and Bluetooth compatibility TimoTwoTM will be the most reliable and useful radio module for wireless DMX.

TimoTwoTM is a fully integrated wireless DMX/RDM module that offers Bluetooth connectivity, DMXmeshTM technology and improved coexistence. Furthermore TimoTwoTM offers over-the-air firmware updates, and just like it’s predecessor its a SMD module that has the options for either internal or external antenna.

Bluetooth prepared

Bluetooth enables easy commissioning and lighting control using portable devices, firmware updates over the air and support for DMX over Bluetooth (in TX mode). You can also build your own lighting control app using LumenRadio’s open Bluetooth API.

Meshed network support

In a meshed network setup, all your fixtures are connected to each other. This enables extremely flexible setups, easy installations and fixture control without having to plan for transmitters, repeaters and receivers.

Improved coexistence

TimoTwo has a dynamic RF transmission resulting in reduced RF footprint as well as improved disturbance detection and improved reliability

About DMXmeshTM

The patent pending DMXmeshTM technology from LumenRadio is a game changer for wireless connectivity. With DMXmeshTM every receiver and fixture will also act as a repeater, where all devices coordinate among themselves to make sure that the coverage is expanded in the most optimal way.

Time for installation and wireless commissioning will be greatly reduced for architectural and architainment illumination, no more site surveys or complicated planning for the wireless DMX distribution. The DMXmeshTM technology will let you focus on what is important; illumination, not on DMX distribution.

MiraOS brain

Unique new features in operating system for smart products

LumenRadio takes ultra-low power wireless connectivity to the next level with breakthrough new features for smart products

PRESS RELEASE: Wireless technology provider LumenRadio, developers of Future-Proof Coexistence Connectivity, has released an enhanced operating system – MiraOS. With a new set of unique features to support ultra-reliable and future proof meshed networks, the upgrade includes many highly anticipated features such as multi-standard and IPv6 support, easy commissioning by NFC and Bluetooth* as well as exceptionally high precision time-stamping of data.

LumenRadio’s patented technologies and the enhanced MiraOS are specifically tailored to enable products to become smart and connected. The technology is easy to integrate and allows manufacturers to develop the application software needed to control and collect data from their products.

MiraOS operates on a wide range of radio chips using state-of-the-art algorithms for mesh, coexistence, ultra-low power, over-the-air firmware updates, supporting standard IPv6 communication. By eliminating interference and adding the ability to co-exist side-by-side with other wireless technologies, smart building product manufacturers can Future-Proof their offerings in a whole new way with MiraOS.

“In addition to our existing patents, I dare to say that our new features make us a strong contender when it comes to ultra-reliable and future proof wireless connectivity”, says Alexander Hellström, CEO of LumenRadio. With this release we aim at making it easier than ever to implement an ultra low power device-to-device connectivity solution for IoT-products at the edge”, he continues.

“As we can also provide hardware in addition to our software we have a full-service solution that offer product manufacturers everything in one bundle – from help to adhere to full sustainability requirements and complete technology certifications to the actual deployment. I firmly believe that we have now positioned ourselves as a leading provider of innovative wireless connectivity on the global market”, says Niclas Norlén, CTO of LumenRadio.

 

The new features

Ultra-low power consumption for battery operated solutions:

RDMchip from LumenRadio – TiMo’s baby brother

LumenRadio, world leaders in reliable wireless DMX, announces the availability of the RDMchip – the world’s smallest wireless RDM receiver.

 TiMo just got a baby brother – the RDMchip. RDMchip has all the features of a TiMo RX crammed into a package of just 6×6 mm. Add a few ancillary components and you have a highly integrated wireless receiver that can talk both DMX and RDM.

The RDMchip is a result from close cooperation with some of LumenRadio’s key customers that selected LumenRadio as their preferred technology provider for wireless technology.

LumenRadio’s Sales Director Peter Lindkvist explains: “The RDMchip targets high-volume customers that are ready to commit to having wireless DMX as a standard. There’s obviously some additional work and investment needed when putting the solution directly onto your own PCB, compared to working with a pre-certified module like the TiMo, but from a cost and footprint perspective there are significant advantages for the customer.”

Niclas Norlén, the company’s CTO, elaborates: “With the RDMchip a truly wireless fixture can be made extremely cheap, without even the need for a user interface – instead the users do all the configuration wirelessly with RDM – for instance with our RDM controller SuperNova, or any other RDM controller though our wireless proxies. The RDMchip can even be cheaper than some XLR connectors.”
