LonMark’s Chief Ambassador, Ron Bernstein, visited China during the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition and Electrical Building Technology fair on June 9-11, 2013. Messe Frankfort, the show’s organization recognized LonMark International as an association supporter for three years in a row with a crystal plaque of appreciation. As the largest combined lighting and buildings show in China, this important event allowed LonMark to introduce the value of open, interoperable solutions to a broad audience. Our continued beneficial relationship with Messe Frankfurt allowed LonMark to reach the broad lighting and buildings audience in China.

LonMark International also hosted a dinner meeting to discuss the future of LonMark in China. Present were Rongwen, Echelon, CLEC, AnHui Joyo Electronics Co, Jiangsu Zhongzhao Electrical Co., Proview, Tomwell, Protectwell, Vstar Communiction Control Technique, Jiangsu Lianhong Automation, TelChina Corp., Wuxi LeadSolar Energy, Sichuan Huati Lighting Industry and Shenzhen Hocenlight Technology.

Each month, LonMark International features a company, organization or individual committed to the development, manufacture and use of open, multi-vendor control systems utilizing ISO/IEC 14908-1 and related standards.

Theben HTS AG are pioneers in the development and production of presence detectors. Their products are manufactured in Europe and sold all over the world, mainly in Europe and Asia. Most of their products operate in the background. They control the light of private and public buildings, regulate the indoor temperature and operate canvas blinds on request. But these products have one thing in common: they make everyday life as agreeable as possible and can help you save energy at the same time.

LonMark International on May 28-30 exhibited at Lumiville, an international trade fair in Lyon, France. At the fair we demonstrated a networked Street Light application from StreetLight Vision (SLV) using luminaires from Philips Lighting, which includes a LonWorks node from CityLone and Guangdong Rongwen Energy Science and Technology Group. Having multiple sources of luminaires can significantly reduce system implementation and maintenance costs. The Streetlight central management software provides streetlight maintenance crews and city operators with automatic lamp failure detection, lamp ON/OFF dimming scheduling services, real time control of each light point and cabinet on their geographical information system and energy consumption analysis tools.

Two presentations were delivered at the exhibition to help educate participants on the benefits of networked street light applications.

It’s not unusual for a fireworks display to be choreographed to music. The companies that stage fireworks events, however, typically rely on expensive and proprietary commercial firing systems that are difficult – if not impossible – to expand or modify. Sonning Fireworks, a small company based in Sonning, England, wanted to design an advanced firing system that was expandable, safe, and cost-effective. The company achieved its goals using Echelon’s LON control networking technology, an open, extensible architecture that lets devices from multiple vendors interact with each other. Its new portable firing system, called LONFire, connects fireworks to a LONWORKS based remote control system that has diagnostic and timing features.
