Mouser Electronics is now offering the Transcend® Network Connected Lighting System from Molex. The Molex Transcend system provides designers with a complete management system to accelerate deployment of smart LED lighting control that uses secure network architectures in commercial buildings, educational facilities, healthcare facilities and manufacturing and warehouse facilities.

The Molex Transcend Network Connected Lighting System is a low-voltage and low-energy system that powers and controls building objects with Transcend’s manager software and components. The internet of things (IoT) system uses a broad array of intelligent components to feed the multi-sensor information and data like real-time energy consumption, light status, temperature and humidity, air quality, occupancy and more to a central host.

The system components include smart LED drivers, LED cable harnesses, Power over Ethernet (PoE) gateways and a range of wireless components, including sensors, dimmers, switches and zone controllers. Transcend Smart LED Drivers are compact, DC/DC LED components that drive LED engines. They are powered and controlled by Transcend PoE Gateway and feature integrated power monitoring that allows control of up to eight devices per gateway, and dual input/output connectors for daisy chaining.

To connect the PoE Gateway to the Transcend Smart LED drivers, the system offers Transcend LED Cable Harnesses that incorporate a Micro-Fit 3.0™ Connector System and provide low-voltage power distribution and data communications between the components. Completing the Transcend Wireless Components include wireless switches and dimmers that use energy-harvesting technology, LED relay zone controllers and solar-powered wireless occupancy and ambient light sensors.
