Deco Lighting and Molex Collaborate on IoT and POE-Ready LED Lighting

Molex of Lisle, Illinois announced the addition of Deco Lighting’s PoE-Ready Vector 2 LED light fixtures to its design portfolio of Molex PoE-Ready products. The new fixtures are part of the collaboration between the two companies.

Molex says that its capabilities in IoT/PoE network connected solutions combined with Deco Lighting’s portfolio of architectural fixtures will help accelerate adoption and broaden the IoT/PoE market. Deco Lighting, a firm based in Commerce, California, is also a member of Molex’s Alliance of lighting firms working together to expand the options for network connected lighting in commercial buildings.

Deco Lighting intends to develop other POE-Ready fixtures in addition to the Vector 2 line.

“The Vector 2 line enables us to confidently go to market with new options for lighting designers and architects who want to take full advantage of our innovative Molex IoT connected building backbone. This collaboration further extends our commitment to continued innovation for our customers,” said Mike Picini, vice president, Network Connected Solutions, Molex.

Deco Lighting and Molex to Debut Vector 2 POE-ready Fixtures

The versatile Deco Lighting Vector 2 LED light fixtures feature a slim 2.44” W x 5”H profile, and come in assorted combinable lengths. The fixtures come in three different mount styles, surface mount, recessed and come with a choice of direct/indirect light and optional color-tuning.

“We believe that the next generation of luminaire selection begins with the CIO or CTO of every organization because lighting is no longer a binary product that simply produces light; it’s now woven into the fabric of building intelligence, through interconnected systems such as Deco PoE powered by Molex,” said Ben Pouladian, president and co-founder, Deco Lighting.

Molex says that its network connected lighting is only one portion of the Molex sensor solutions system that lets architects, designers and building managers utilize Molex’s Network Connected Solutions to maximize building control and efficiency. Also, Molex contends that its network backbone serves as a cost-effective, IoT- and future-ready platform that can manage building feedback for applications ranging from presentation to an integrated building management system (IBMS).

According to Molex, the backbone fully integrates current use cases including lighting control and is ready for IoT applications in the future.

Molex and Deco Lighting will present their product line at LIGHTFAIR, May 8-10 at McCormick Place, Chicago, in booth 1657 located in the Design Pavilion.
