Sacramento, Calif. August 20, 2022—McWong International, a leading innovator in Bluetooth® mesh technology, has received notification from the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Committee that the company’s TruBlu™ Bluetooth® mesh Fixture Controller with Long Range Antenna was accepted into the 2022 Progress Report.
The award was announced today at the IES Annual Conference. The mission of the Progress Committee is to keep in touch with developments in the art and science of lighting throughout the world and prepare a yearly report of achievements for the Society. Acceptance is based on an impartial judging process used by the committee to evaluate each submission on its uniqueness, innovation and significance to the lighting industry.
The TruBlu Bluetooth mesh Fixture Controller with Long Range Antenna, developed with technology partner Silvair, offers flexible yet powerful networked lighting control outdoors. Since hardwiring is cost-prohibitive for outdoor applications, the introduction of a long-range (900ft) Bluetooth mesh wireless controller that can be integrated directly into a wide range of commercially available fixtures eliminates “range anxiety.” Together with features like continuous dimming, DLC certification, zone and luminaire level lighting control options, this controller enables cost-effective Bluetooth mesh control for outdoor lighting.
Stephen Zhou, Executive Vice President, notes, “We are pleased and honored to receive this recognition. We recognize the entire McWong team for its hard work and dedication, and we join the other recipients of this recognition with pride.”
