Technology

C3’s management has over 95 years dedicated to the design of intelligent solid state circuitry, digital control systems, and custom illumination solutions. C3 has dedicated the last six years designing, engineering, and manufacturing the components necessary for a comprehensive Controlled Lighting Network. The entire system is based on Intelligent Power Distribution Modules (PDMs) that use Class II wiring to distribute power to a virtually unlimited number of fixtures.

Dimming control, current limiting, and energy monitoring are all integral to C3’s Intelligent Power Distribution Modules that can be addressed wired or wireless via WiFi®, BlueTooth®, ZigBee®, etc. to provide monitoring and control of illumination for multiple rooms or zones of a building. C3’s Digital Wall Dimmers can also control individual rooms or zones of lighting, and simultaneously function as a remote hub for occupancy, daylight harvesting, temperature, humidity, CO2 and sound level sensors.

Digital current limiting to Class II levels of power provide a substantial reduction in the carbon footprint of an installed lighting system by eliminating the need to install the metal conduit and large gauge wire typically required for lighting. C3’s technology utilizes simplified LED fixtures that do not require integrated power supplies or dimming controls and are smaller in size, making them less expensive to ship and easier to install.

By integrating current limiting, power distribution, energy monitoring and control for lighting in a networked lighting system C3 has created the next generation of LED illumination.
